    Double degree in BEng(computer systems)/BSci(Physics) or Maths/BSci(Physics)

    I would much rather a double degree as it provides more time to complete the necessary maths courses. My uni doesn't have an option to combine physics with computer science, either as a double major or double degree. I want to obtain formal maths training if it will greatly assist in my...

    Double degree in BEng(computer systems)/BSci(Physics) or Maths/BSci(Physics)

    My goal is to do an honours year and PhD in astrophysics and astronomy at ANU. I don't know what area yet... I have years to figure that out, but either theoretical or observational. My two program options for uni next year are BEng(computer systems)/BSci(Physics) or BMaths(Pure)/BSci(Physics)...

    Should I still do BMath/BScience (Physics) at UoN?

    I got 74 in 2U maths and 78 in physics. I was expecting band 5s but that obviously didn't pan out. Should I still pursue a double degree in mathematics and physics with the hopes of doing a PhD? I am very passionate about physics, but also enjoy biology a lot. I got 92 in bio, 83 in...

    Commute from Newcastle (Kotara) to UNSW

    My grades would suffer tremendously if I worked part time. I plan on doing BSc(Neuroscience)/BArt(Philosophy) at UNSW with a distinction average at least so I can go into science research, so that wouldn't allow much time outside uni. UoN doesn't offer anything like what UNSW does in terms...

    Commute from Newcastle (Kotara) to UNSW

    I've done the maths and there's no way I can afford it :(

    Commute from Newcastle (Kotara) to UNSW

    That's what I plan on doing. Because I plan to do a double degree, including philosophy, there's going to be a lot of reading haha A major concern is the time I'd be leaving in the morning (5am) and getting back at night (8-11pm). If I had to get home one night at 11pm and leave at 4:30am...

    Commute from Newcastle (Kotara) to UNSW

    It would probably be around 6 hours total. I double checked the times and it's 3 hours to actually get to the university by bus.

    Commute from Newcastle (Kotara) to UNSW

    Hi all, I'm wanting desperately to attend UNSW next year (I'm currently in year 12), but I'm having doubts as to whether or not it can be done with the issue of commuting a total of 5 hours every day I need to go to uni annoyingly lingering over my head. I understand that some people manage...

    How does tutoring work?

    Hopefully this is still relevant to you at the moment. During tutoring you typically go over the concepts you're having difficulty with and simply work on them until you understand it to a level you feel is sufficient... if you're honest with the tutor and tell them when you don't understand...

    UAC Application

    Fantastic. Thankyou very much! :)

    UAC Application

    Alright, thankyou :) Do you know roughly what time you pick your courses for the semester? Like in February, March, a week before uni starts?
  12. ScienceGuy99

    UAC Application

    In the application, do you have to specify your major? For example, when I apply for a Bachelor of Science in a couple weeks, will I be required to, or have the option to, select my major for next year in that degree?

    Physics or Chemistry

    Chemistry has a larger workload in my opinion; it requires more memorisation, commitment, and thinking/understanding. Physics is easier as there are concepts that you can easily identify and work on understanding, then that's it, you've got it down for the exam. That's for HSC Physics... I...

    Investigation of phenotype: help with control group needed!!

    Thankyou very much!!! I have another question: is the rate of growth of the wheatgrass considered phenotype?

    Investigation of phenotype: help with control group needed!!

    I am doing an investigation on the effects of the environment on the phenotype of an organism (wheatgrass). I'm going to look at how different colours of light (red, blue, and white) affect its phenotype. I'm required to do a control group for this assignment, but I have no idea what it...

    UON vs UQ

    Hi! I'm wondering what you all think about the Biomedical Science degree at UON compared to the one at the University of Queensland. Medicine is one of a few options for the future, so if you could factor that into the answer of which uni is best for Biomed that'd be great! :) Thankyou :D

    University of Queensland: Dual Degrees and Majors

    Hello :) I'm in year 12 at the moment (I do my HSC in 2017) and I have some pretty complex questions regarding what I can and can't do in terms of number of courses and majors at uni. I'm excessively passionate about science, so the science/technology field is where I want to go and do...

    Circular motion! Please help

    So there'll be no questions where I have to calculate angular speed?

    Circular motion! Please help

    Awesome, thankyou! :)

    Circular motion! Please help

    Hey everyone, My teacher has given us a whooole heap of questions using ω=theta/time (theta = angle travelled in radians, ω = angular velocity, t = time), and I was going through my textbook and physics formula sheet for the HSC and there is no reference to radians or ω=theta/time, but only...
