    Question about double degree

    You can technically skip all actuarial subjects in the first year but why would you? There is only 1 actuarial specific course and 2 mathematics courses (science faculty) that are geared towards the actuarial component. Other than that I'm pretty sure you can avoid the commerce bits of actuarial...

    Bachelor of advanced science vs bachelor of science at UNSW

    No real difference, except that in advsci, you have to do a special subject (scif1131) and have to do your subjects at the advanced level where possible. Not 100% sure how the 2 honours years works, since both advsci and engo have embedded honours.

    Where can I do a double degree of Actuarial Studies and Music?

    Actuarial doesn't have many combined degree options (at least at MQ and UNSW) since it requires a lot of subjects for external accreditation. This is why you can only really combine it with 'similar' disciplines since there's some overlap that'll give you extra space for such subjects. Not 100%...

    2u maths for UNSW CS

    This isn't quite right; There is only one easier math course (MATH1011). You still need to do the normal/advanced first year maths courses in order to do the second year ones. If you don't think you're ready to do MATH1131 (the first standard maths course) in your first term of uni, you can do...

    Best scaling subjects?

    If you love society and culture, why not do both? Imo society and culture was really easy and wasn't too hard to balance with MX2. You don't need to make an ultimatum right now.

  16. Q

    Best scaling subjects?

    Don't pick them if you don't like them. You'd rather do well in PE than shit in economics. Even though economics scales better, very good in PDHPE will be better than just average in economics.

    Teacher’s Wages

    This is more seeing the wide variety of teachers there are. Some put a lot of effort into their work (which is greatly appreciated) (generally the younger crew that are very passionate), but there is a proportion of them who really do take it easy - these tend to be the older, more permanent...

    Teacher’s Wages

    Yes. To be fair I reckon teachers (well most) at a selective school have the easier job - some barely teach and assume the students just learn it all at tutoring lol
