    Question for those who do BScience (International) @UNSW

    In the "assumed knowledge" section of the UAC handbook it says that Chemistry was one of the prequisites for this course, but I haven't done any Chemistry in year 11 and 12. Should I invest some money into a bridging course? Are there any alternatives to bridging courses? Cheers

    How did you guys study Maths 3U/4U on a normal day(excluding studying for exams)? And how do you be efficient when you study? People on BoS always stress the importance of efficiency (i.e. sometimes 1 hr worth of actual work is better than 4 hours worth of half-assed procrastination etc etc)...
