    Paying Uni Fees

    I've read that at enrolment (at least for BPharm @ USyd), you choose whether you're going to pay your CSP Contribution upfront, or take up a HECS-HELP loan. Since the fees are calculated by adding up costs of each subject/unit, do I have the option of paying some of my CSP Contribution for...

    What is BSc (Nutrition) like?

    Like, in particular... do you guys actually memorise the equations for chords/tangents etc etc in the parabole chapter? I usually just derive most of them while answering question. But then there are trig formulas and rules that you just have 2 remember.

    For my trial, I realised I poorly allocated time for each response in Paper 2. I spent around 45-50 minutes to write 5 pages of our schools writing booklets (equal to 10 hsc writing booklet pages) for Mod A, then 50 minutes for a lengthy but sophisticated King Lear response... which left me only...
