For demographic trends in this major, you should email the department directly.
I'm pretty sure they will be able to give more accurate answers.

I just saw in the prospectus that in order to get into this major needs very strong mathematics year 12. Is the math in this major very hard? Because other majors only state year 12 mathematics but in DS column it has the words 'very strong'. That's why I'm rethinking about this now. Thank you.

wat is year 12 math? u from which country one?

anyway, i believe all majors that requires u to take lvl2000 and above math module probably will need 'very strong' math.

if u r a typical Alvl H2 math student, u r not prepared for uni math - that being said, it dosnt mean u cant do well in it.

hello! j2 student here interested in data science.. have a few qns..

i researched on the modules a bit, found out that the math is quite essential and there is a lot of coding(compared to courses like bizanalyst). tbh my math(esp calculus) is not good and coding seems scary to me (tried abit of python) and i have little confidence in these 2 areas. will it be a big issue?

(if yes then i will be considering biz analytics but many say that its generalised and doesnt have good career prospects...)

what programmes do yall learn/use in uni?

how vigorous is the cirriculum and the difficulty of the modules?

also, if possible, can share some papers/notes on the DSA/CS modules so i can get a feel of what the whole course is actually about ?

sry for lengthy post, hope yall can help thx

Mathematics needed for data science:
Probability (discrete, continuous, Bayesian inference, etc)
Statistics (classical inference, hypotheses testing, etc)
Single variable calculus
Multivariable calculus
Optimization (linear programming, nonlinear programming, etc)

If you can't master the JC level material for single variable calculus, multivariable calculus will kill you. The rest of the mathematics will fly over your head.
