Hey, you donít necessarily need to do a maths to get into a science degree - for example a bachelor of science at monash does not require math.

Other uniís may require maths. If so there are bridging course available e.g mathslink at Swinburne. It really depends on what uni you go to. Each has their own maths requirements and bridging options.


A bridging course is a maths program that goes for a month or so after the end of year 12 but before uni starts (generally through January and February).

so would a bridging course cover methods topics?

It depends. There are bridging courses available for both further and for methods. Presumably the further bridging course would only cover further topics but Iím not entirely sure.

You'd do the bridging course, which would have the equivalent maths found in Methods, probably at the college associated with the intended uni e.g. Monash College --> Monash, with students in a similar situation. You won't be studying VCE Methods with VCE students, AFAIK. Hope that makes sense.
Perhaps the best way is to check up what bridging courses are available at the institution(s) you wish to study at.

One more question, would they accept doing multiple bridging course cause i need to do chemistry and methods

To avoid giving the wrong answer, I'd probably check with your desired institute directly. Usually they're really nice about it, but I'd definitely go confirm that with the uni/ college themselves. Sorry that I'm not much help here.

Different unis run their 'bridging courses' differently, and oftentimes the answer on what sort of bridging course etc. you should do (there may be multiple pathways) is not crystal clear. You are best checking with the uni themselves.


Ideally, to avoid minimal catching up, you would want to do subjects such as Methods/Chem in high school. Further isn't generally required as a prerequisite (if it is, it will be 'any maths').
