    Economic Mathematical Equation which is constantly decreasing.

    I don't know where this goes so I'll just put this here. It's a question regarding a decreasing value over time. If you have an equation B = (1 - R) A + I, where A is the value of stock in one period, and B is the value of stock in a next period, R is a depreciation rate of 2%, and I is an...

    Applied Finance w/ Comm Prof Accg Macquare -> Commerce/Business UNSW/USyd/UTS

    Hypothetically, if my WAM is high enough, I should be able to transfer to these courses within my first year correct? I should be able to even transfer within the first semester if I do well enough. With the structure of my double degree, I'm not exactly sure what kind of courses I am able to...

    Is it possible to get another offer after accepting one from the same university?

    Thinking too narrowly towards Commerce has possibly made me regret it, as I have been looking at Applied Finance double degree with Eco or Comm (Prof Accg.) as options, with comfortable 88 ATAR cut-offs. The two degrees look fairly similar, with Eco looking like it studies more macroeconomics...

    Degree vs Degree / Uni vs Uni Thread

    Sorry mods if this isn't allowed. As seen on the page and as Jan 18 becomes closer with less than a month left to finish up our preferences, many to-be uni students are questioning their degree choices, including me :P. So I thought it was a good idea to make an all-in-one thread. I...

    Want some clarification on early offers.

    I've received and just accepted BComm at Macquarie University and I have a few questions. Doing some research, I've been reassured that I still have the same chances in the main round for other offers. I have also heard that I can simply unenrol if I get a better offer, but it might be a...

    EAS application rejected.

    My grandfather passed away during the first week of trials. So my mom, who usually took care of me since rest of family had work/moved out, had went overseas to attend to the funeral, causing a 'change in home environment' blahblahblah. Grief, and these changes in responsibilities, had changed...

    Ranking of best universities for B.Comm.

    Looking at universities. In Sydney, it's somewhat clear that UNSW B.Comm is the most popular choice for students. What about the uni's that are less preferred? I've heard MacQ B.Comm is renowned, haven't heard much about U.Syd or UTS other than U.Syd being a GO8. I'm not sure how to elaborate...

    Need Elaboration on 1996 3a).

    I need some clarification/explanation on why the outer radius is 4-x rather than 4+x. I've been discussing this with my tutor and it still doesn't make sense to me. The 4 is easily understood, as the graph shows that it goes from 0 to 4. +x is what I would've thought would be added onto the...

    School Rank: 420s (2015 was a VERY weak cohort), 338 (2014), 300 (2013) Currently our school looks fairly competitive compared to last year so last year's indication is not as relevant. The following marks only include internal assessments/assignments, including the trials. All years that are...

    What is the best double degree in combination with Commerce?

    I currently only have 3 preferences in my UAC - all BComms in UNSW, MacQ, and USyd respectively. I'm not really sure what to do in the future, but at least I'm mostly interested in BComm and it seems well suited for me. I have heard BArts is good for a wide range of courses, and will allow you...

    Odd Integration Proof

    So, as most Ext 2 students know, the last part of Integration involves proving the odd and even definite function proofs. So for the odd proof (<s>I'll just do it below </s>, its completely wrong don't follow) <s> Show\quad \int _{ -a }^{ a }{ f(x) } dx\quad =\quad 0 Let\quad u\quad =\quad -x\\...

    Actuarial or Engineering?

    Considering a possibility of doing a double degree, I was wondering which would be better suited for me, more considerate of my interests than marks. Although I would most likely only do a single degree of Commerce, I'd still like to think about the possibility of a double degree. Currently I...
