    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

    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...

    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?

    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

    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...

    Senior Science textbooks?

    Hey everyone! I'm beginning year 12 next term and wanted to see if there are any good or useful textbooks that students use/have used for senior science? I'd be using it to guarantee a 95+ mark for the 2017 HSC :D I'm also doing biology and physics and have just gotten textbooks for them...

    Senior Science or Chemistry?

    Hey guys! I've been pondering whether senior science would be better for me during year 12 as opposed to chemistry. I enjoy chemistry, but I really suck at it (50% average this year) and it really frustrates and stresses me out. I believe if I did senior science I could get my desired...

    How to survive at uni?

    Hello! I plan on doing a double degree after I finish year 12, but location is limiting for me. It'd be amazing if I could move out of home and into a small place by myself with as much privacy as possible. First question: How difficult would it be to juggle a double degree (Bachelor...

    Summaries for exams

    Hello, I have an extension exam coming up and want to write summaries for each topic. How do I lay it out? And for permutations and combinations - a topic that mostly relies on experience with types of questions - how do I summarise that? Also for trigonometry and polynomials...

    Biology herbarium assignment

    Hello everyone! I'm writing my reports for the five flowers I have to do, and I'm unsure on how to lay out each report. Do I use subheadings? My teacher posted a case study on mangroves and it has 6 subheadings that discuss various traits and characteristics of the mangrove, so would this...
