- Uni Grad
I am assuming your question is in regards to if you were to take engineering at university.Adding to what 1039213, how useful and helpful is other subjects apart from HSC Maths units, such as HSC physics & chem for example? Do you have to memorise a lot of info in UNI like it is in HSC physics?
I would say that yes they are helpful to form the foundation of your engineering degree (Phys and Chem especially).
This is where university students differentiate from high school students.
You will need to stop to think about what things are and start to think about why things are.
Hence, yes you would need to KNOW a lot of information.
Notice that I used the word KNOW not MEMORISE. Because memorising means that you don't KNOW what to do with the information. The information is just is.
So to do well at university, you can't just memorise information, you need to know them. Why things are, why they aren't, etc. The why connects the what and it will be much easier for you to remember things. Don't worry about memorising.
