Sydney Uni drops maths entry requirements to lift diversity


Sydney University has announced that from 2025 dozens of courses will no longer require HSC advanced mathematics for entry.

The university this week announced the shocking changes which included medical, dental and even mathematics courses.

According to a statement published on the university website:

We are making this change to increase the accessibility of our courses while ensuring commencing students are equipped with the knowledge base they need to successfully progress through their degrees. With this approach, all students will have the opportunity to complete their studies with the same level of mathematics skills and knowledge, regardless of their starting point.

It’s not dumbing down, comrade. It’s equality of outcome.

Which, of course, is dumbing down.
