I wondered if any one had raised this point before, or if it wre hidden in a sticky somewhere: as one on the teaching side of the fence, I find the requests in the academic and career guidance forum for people to 'ok' their choice of units for the next semester most dsiturbing. courses are individual to the offering university (and remember this is an international forum) and the hidden necessities of prerequisites (for the options about to be taken and the implications for future study) make this a minefield. anyone who offers an opinion is almost certainly not in a position to be able to do so with any authority. i would like something to be added to that forum stating in no uncertain terms that such specific advice is impossible to give and that they ought to ask their teachers or personal tutors. the last thing anyone here would want is to be blamed for a bad choice to be made. as an example, I always find it puzzling that people ask such things as if analysis 1 is required for course X, as if there were a universal definition of "analysis 1". perhaps just some "remember, no one here knows your circumstances except you, and on one here knows anything about your particular university (which they never name)"
