Applied mathematical modelling and any of the third year ATOC subjects would be swell.

First para of my SR of Reason goes into some general details.

(I've only done the one, but knew people in almost all the others so word got around.)
If I had my time over I probably would've done Language instead, but pick one that vaguely suits something you want to major in if you get a chance. They're all pretty generic and dull from the sounds of things :P ESPECIALLY THE GODDAMN WORKSHOPS

Let me know if you have any questions :)

Thanks so much. Looking forward to them :-\

Also, this is not specifically about subjects, but do you know what it's like to do a Diploma of Languages?

Haha, tbh the content in some of the Foundation Subjects is kind of interesting, but they're not too well run and the idea that it's a helpful introduction to the skills needed in Arts subjects is total nonsense :P

Re: Diploma of Languages; not something I've had any experience in - though I have done a few Language electives which've been really good. In general it just means you have to overload in a couple of semesters, or extend your degree by half a year (I think?) but if you're keen on learning a new one or adding to your current proficiency then definitely look into it online or on open days.
Maybe read through any current subject reviews for the language you're interested in (if there are any) or just let us know which one(s) you're thinking of doing and someone else might be able to jump in with some feedback :)

I didn't do it, but based on my experience with level 1 languages and what people who've done French 1 have told me, it's fairly easily manageable. Personally, I was pleasantly surprised by how little work there was to do for Spanish 1 compared to my other science-based subjects.

yep can confirm level 1 chinese was one of the slowest paced subjects i have ever done without much to learn, very clear, fair and i dare say easy assessments and fun classes with a good atmosphere

EDIT: also, from what i've heard from most of my friends, the 5th language subject (eg; chinese 5, spanish 5, french 5(especially french)) is generally where things get difficult/annoying/less enjoyable. i dont think i know a single person whose done  "insertlanguagehere 6"

A friend of mine took French 1 this year, and I helped with the h/w. It's not too hard I don't think. I think you'll find the subject easier if you engage regularly with the language. Learn the vocab, the conjugations, the grammar, etc. Trying to cram that stuff won't be easy, nor will it be pleasant. The group project from memory wasn't too hard (I helped correct it), but you'd need to learn your lines for the presentation. That's all I can say considering I didn't actually take the subject!

Can confirm, Spanish 5 was a lot trickier. Although, it was still a lot of fine. French 5 has a terrible reputation; one it seems to have earned. Know plenty of people who've done it and all say it's dreadful.

Of course though, what you should really be thinking of is Spanish 1 rather than French 1

Spanish >>>>> French
