    fact or cap - entry to med school discriminates based on race

    It’s not unthinkable that this could be the case either officially or maybe unofficially. Affirmative action based on race has been said to exist in other western countries such as America where right now there’s two cases in the Supreme Court, students of fair commission v Harvard & North...

    People who didn't get the required ATAR for your course: what are you doing now?

    Well there are other pathways. One of my friends dropped out in year 11 to become a chef, realised it isn’t what he wanted to do. Did a 1 year course at tafe in IT and now he’s studying a 4 year IT and Business degree in UTS, and he didn’t even get an ATAR obviously.

    Is SWE easier than Computer Science?

    No. Software engi does all the same core courses as CS, however it forces you to do extra SE courses that focus on the development of good software and what not.

    FTP on phones

    All ftp does is ceate an open 'door' for other clients to connect to and recieve data from. This is done through the link that it generates. Just turn the ftp off and this 'door' will close.

    Laptop requirements for electrical engineering and computer science?

    I recommend getting windows with at least 8gb ram, though 16 is preferred if you’re going to be majoring in Cybersecurity for compsci. You will find running virtual machines to be quite useful and this will be a hassle if you do not have a decent amount of ram.

    Who’s finished their exams

    Yes I felt like that after highschool and even in my early years of uni. It’s only now in my third year that I’ve figured things out.

    General Programming Thread

    I found it easy but I already had some programming experience before doing it. If you have zero experience you will definitely have to work hard to get a HD. If you have experience already getting a HD is definitely something you can get without worrying too much.

    General Programming Thread

    I love this major. It has some very challenging courses that are also really interesting. All the lecturers and tutors aren’t uni academics but are all currently working in Cybersecurity, so the lectures and tutes usually start at like 6pm after they get off work.

    General Programming Thread

    Created a messenger type application with Python for an assignment this term with a server and many clients. Also had to implement p2p messaging between clients. This was all done using socket programming. It wasn’t really difficult and tbh programming has kinda become mundane and boring to me...

    What maths should I be taking with physics?

    Yes doing standard is fine with high school Physics. HSC Physics is designed in such a way so that you do not need any higher levels of maths. Taking higher courses will make some specific content easier to understand, but this is in no way a requirement and you can understand it just as well...

    Math Advanced Prediction/Thoughts

    Well I’ll take your guys word for it, but I do find it difficult to believe you needed to be an extension 1 student to not be rattled by the exam. Wdym? What people? What article? I’m just talking about in general having read a decent amount of articles over the past 4 years that it seems that way.

    Math Advanced Prediction/Thoughts

    Yeah that’s what I meant. I swear in news articles I always see a few students/teachers saying this every year.

    Math Advanced Prediction/Thoughts

    I swear they say that every year. Is it just me but literally every year you have the people in the news and on Facebook complaining about how the paper did not give students a chance to show what they’ve learnt.
