ATAR game doesn't add up for mathematics

december 2015 by simonjob

Students and their parents should realise that trying to play the ATAR game in a subject like mathematics is very dangerous. Yes, you may wriggle yourself into a university place by taking low-level subjects, but if you cannot pass any of the courses there, then you have shot yourself in the foot.

At UNSW we have clearly stated assumed knowledge (many of us we would prefer pre-requisites). Despite what some schools seem to be telling their students, we do not have any bridging courses for those coming in with only General Mathematics. There is no easy way to make up for the two years of high school calculus.
