Understanding course requirements
1. Identify your planned future science area(s) of study. Choose at least two pair of units in first year. 2. Check the sequence and prerequisite requirements for the units. You can find this information in the handbook: http://bit.ly/1ksHbSN

Find out • What pair of units you need to complete in first year • Are there any additional requirements?
Also consider: • Which maths/stats unit will you take? • Do you have room left for electives? How will you best use this allowance?
