    USYD 2-unit maths bridging course?

    the bridging course is for people in exactly your situation, so it'll be perfect for you. year 10 maths is pretty basic anyways, I spoke to the coordinator of the course and they said the course works for people who have been away from mathematics for up to 10 years, so you should be good to go.
