This particular message is for all Year 9, 10, 11 & 12 students interested in attending Sydney University to complete a science, engineering, commerce and IT degree:
YEARS 9 & 10 (2016) NEED TO KNOW THIS…..
The University of Sydney has decided that students will need a BAND 4, 5 or 6 in 2 Unit Maths before they enter first year science, engineering, commerce and IT from 2019 onwards.
This is the beginning of a shift back to prerequisites and other universities may potentially follow suit. Therefore it is important that you work hard at Maths and all your subjects in the early years to ensure eligibility.
In 2015, 81% of the candidates scored Band 4, 5 or 6 for 2 Unit Maths.
