Hey.

I just asked my friend about the Calculus 2 and Linear Algebra.

Because of her high grade (87%) in Calculus 1, they allowed her to enrol in both Calculus 2 and Linear Algebra in the same semester (although I think anyone can do Calculus 2 and Linear Algebra in the same semester because both subjects only require Calculus 1 or spesh maths as a prerequisite).

She told me the reason why she did Calculus 2 and Linear Algebra was because she didn't have Maths 1 so this was an alternative way so she can get into the second year acturial program.

The prerequisites for Financial Maths 1 (second year actuarial subject) is

One of

(i) a mark of 60 or better in 620-120 UMEP Mathematics for High Achieving Students or 620-121 Mathematics A (Advanced) (for students who took these subjects in 2007 or earlier);

(ii) an average mark of 60 or better in 620-157 Mathematics 1 and 620-158 Mathematics 2, with a pass in each subject;

(iii) a mark of 75 or better in 620-141 Mathematics A;

**(iv) an average mark of 75 or better in 620-155 Calculus 2 and 620-156 Linear Algebra (for enrolment in 2009 only); ** (v) a mark of 75 or better in 620-156 Linear Algebra and a mark of 60 or better in 620-158 Mathematics 2; and

(vi) an average mark of 60 or better in 620-120 UMEP Mathematics for High Achieving Students and 620-158 Mathematics 2, with a pass in each subject (from the unimelb handbook

https://app.portal.unimelb.edu.au/CSCApplication/view/2009/300-203).

And then there is the Probablility subject (

https://app.portal.unimelb.edu.au/CSCApplication/view/2009/620-201) which requires

**Calculus 2 with a grade of H2B or above, plus Linear Algebra;**Or

Accelerated Mathematics 1 (620-157 Mathematics 1 prior to 2009);

620-190 (UMEP Maths for High Achieving Students);

plus Accelerated Mathematics 2 (620-158 Mathematics 2 prior to 2009);
