Assumed Knowledge

If you don't do the subjects considered as 'assumed knowledge' for a course, does it lower your chance of getting accepted into that course? (Even when you've reached the atar requirements and prerequisites)

Hi! Assumed knowledge doesn't affect your entry into a specific course :-) It's just for when you actually start uni, e.g. I'm pretty sure Commerce assumes you know 2U maths, so when you do a uni subject they won't teach you 2U - it's expected that you can keep up.

I hope this makes sense!

Mod edit: I've deleted your other post because you've posted it twice.
HSC 2017: English (Standard) // Mathematics // Modern History // Legal Studies // Business Studies
2018-2022: B International Studies/B Media (PR & Advertising) @ UNSW

Good luck for trials! ❤️

You should be all good!

I got accepted into Commerce at UNSW with assumed knowledge of 2U Maths and I only did General so you should be in the clear!
