UMEP Maths prerequisite problem
« on: October 26, 2021, 03:05:41 pm »
Hey guys :)

I'm thinking of applying for the UMEP maths, and got a question about the prerequisite.

It asks us to
1. enrol in Both method and spesh next year
2. get A average in method1/2
3. get B+ in "General Mathsmatics (Specialist Maths Orientation)"

I just wonder that what does the third prerequisite refers to? Is it general maths or spesh or all the maths subjects?

Very much appreciate! Hope you have a nice day!

I remember asking about this, from memory, and somebody correct me if i'm wrong, spec didn't used to have a direct 1/2 so to say, it was called general math/orientation. This can be seen because there r like 4 chapters in the cambridge textbook which directly link to next year...So doing spec 1/2 is what it means.

Can confirm that Spesh U1/2 used to be called a number of names, which included things like: General Maths (Specialist orientation), General Maths Advanced, General Maths for Specialist, etc.. It just depended on what your school wanted to call it. VCAA started regulating the name in c. 2013, from memory. (It was still GMA when I did General back in 2012.)
