** To enrol in MATHS 1012 Mathematics IB students must first pass MATHS 1011 Mathematics IA, this is presented as a level 1 elective. Entry into MATHS 1011 Mathematics IA requires SACE Stage 2 Specialist Mathematics, or a pass in MATHS 1013 Mathematics IM. The Mathematics IA/IB pathway is for students who want to study extra mathematics. A pass in Mathematics IB is prerequisite for all Level II Mathematics courses.
# Electives must include Broadening Electives to the value of 9 units.
These Broadening Electives cannot be chosen from the following subject areas: COMP SCI , MATHS, PURE MTH, APP MATH, STATS.
