Ohh. Thanks. Another question.It's the Talented Students tute for MATH1241 (at least it looks like MATH1241); you can only enrol in it by emailing the School of Mathematics/Statistics, you can't enrol in it yourself. Hence having a zero capacity, so no one can enrol in it themselves.
There are?Why can't you enrol into MATH1241 now? There are spots open, and if the reason is because they are crap times, UNSW doesn't give a crap about that - they do warn students that you may not get a timetable you will like. If this is the case, you should first enrol and then wait until just before next semester and see if anyone drops out or a space opens up in a time you prefer.
If your Commerce major/s doesn't require MATH1251, I strongly suggest you switch immediately to MATH1241.
I doubt they will make room for you if any tutorial class (except the Talented class) is still open. The tutorial rooms can only fit a certain number of students in them, 32 students in a room is pretty much full if it's a tutorial room in the Red Centre. If in fact there are no spots open, the argument can be made that since it's a core subject, you should be allowed to enrol into the course, but that's not a definite.
Your option B is also viable, but watch out if any of your commerce courses requires MATH1231/41/51 as a prerequisite. However, I think it would be better to be with the MATH cohort you enrolled in, mainly because of things like maths assignments in second year maths courses - you kind of want to be with people you know or at least have spoke with before.
Tell me about it.. -.-Yeah, sorry I didn't notice that it was full. In this event, you can try and contact UNSW to see if you they can enrol you, otherwise, they will probably tell you to wait for those who fail or don't achieve credit to drop out. Still, try emailing the School of Maths - do stress that it is a core and you want to complete your maths component first, whether that's true or not).
Yes, it will ask you to enrol in a lecture stream, Tut 1 of 2 and Tut 2 of 2.
You can do MATH1251 in that event, but I still reckon you should do MATH1241. The MATH1251 assessments do seem harder, and so I think it would benefit your marks if you do MATH1241 (which I thought was a good course when I did it).
So I've received a reply..

It is not an option you have to carry on and take MATH1251 as MATH1151 is
not compatible with the other 1st year maths courses.

Turns out it isn't an option? Does this mean I HAVE TO do MATH1251? =/
