Mathematics and Statistics Options in First Year

Wind Flows

Mathematics and statistics are key disciplines in cutting edge research and technology at the frontiers of science, industry and commerce. Thus it forms an important component of several programmes within the Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Biomedicine, Bachelor of Commerce, Bachelor of Design and Bachelor of Environments.

In addition students enrolled in the Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Biomedicine, Bachelor of Commerce, Bachelor of Design, Bachelor of Environments and Bachelor of Music may include mathematics and statistics subjects in their degrees as breadth subjects or as part of a Diploma in Mathematical Sciences.

Our complete list of first year subjects is given here. To see the options for your degree please choose one of the following:

Students with a qualification other than VCE year 12 should ask Stop 1 for advice about their first year mathematics and statistics subjects, or see a course advisor in the Mathematics and Statistics Learning Centre in the Peter Hall Building (formerly Richard Berry).

UMEP Mathematics

Students who have passed UMEP Mathematics have alternative options: see UMEP Choices.

Entry to MAST10008 Accelerated Mathematics 1

Permission to enrol in MAST10008 is automatic only for students who have obtained a Study Score of 38 or more for VCE Specialist Mathematics 3/4 or a score of 6 or higher in IB HL Mathematics. (This is the Study Score issued by VCAA, not the scaled up Study Score used for ATAR calculations.)

Students with a qualification other than VCE year 12 (interstate, overseas, Trinity Foundation etc.) should ask Stop 1 for advice about whether they are automatically eligible for entry to MAST10008.

Students who are not automatically eligible, but are very keen to enter MAST10008 (e.g. Actuarial studies) may be eligible to sit the Advanced Placement Test (APT) held during the Friday of Orientation Week of Semester 1. Information about the APT is available here.
