2014-15 H3s

Kinda disappointed to see that SMU isn't offering H3 game theory this year... or is it just my school? Any seniors with advice on whether to take a H3/what H3s to take?

You already know whether you qualify for H3? That's early!

What H3 subj to take still has to depend on yr grade for that particular H2 subject, besides yr passion on that subj...

I'm from RJ, and criteria for H3 is at least B for the H2 subject, and at least C for all other subjects (including KI). I can't remember if requirement for GP is a pass or a C...

I'm interested in a lot of subjects, but must be realistic also lah, some H3s are notoriously difficult (pharmaceutical chem, for example), and it's nice to get advice from seniors as to whether a H3 is a killer subject or not

Thanks for the info....
More or less same as my gal's sch...
at least a B for the H2 subj, also need to do reasonably well for the rest of the subjs...
Except for gal's sch, at least an A for H2 Maths if one wanna to take up H3 Maths...

Do RJ pupils need Teachers' recommendations in order to be offered H3 ? Or so long their results qualify ?

Would like to seek opinions as to "What are the career options if read Maths in Uni "??
( besides teaching , which she is not interested in)
That will help to decide whether to take up H3 Maths or not ...

Depends on what she specialises in. Applied Maths and statistics type training can be useful in jobs requiring planning, optimisation. Some may go into actuarial studies (takes a lot more professional training though). I believe that many econs and financial organisations need people with strong Maths skills, as do number-crunching scientific research organisations. Perhaps you can ask her to look at career websites. Pure maths is more for research, I think.

Disclaimer - I may sound like I know about this, but it's 2nd-hand. I am not mathematical, but married someone who is!
