## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi there,

I am currentley in grade 10 and am having trouble getting into the highest maths wich is geometry and trigonometry which in partnership with introductory calculus goes into Calculus in year 12. I have gotten in to introductory calculus but im quite positive that ill need calculus and introductory calculus only goes into applicable maths in year 12.

Geometry & Trigonometry/introductory calc>calculus=Solid preparation for science courses in university

Introductory Calculus>Applicable Maths=solid preparation for university

i have a bad past and i may have only pulled my finger out too late. i am in one of the top schools and am ranked 3rd out of 114 year 10's. This means i can easily study any science however maths is a different case and the system works different and i dont know how i am going to do calculus.

Do i absoulutley need to go into calculus to pursue a career in astrophysics or is there a course in university that can make up for me missing calculus?

will i be accepted into astronomy/astrophysics because of my science abilities? if so hardly or easily?

This is my plan of subject selection so far if i cant do geometry and trigonometry:

Introductory calculus

Physics

Chemistry

French

English Lit/2A2B

biology

Very smart for my career intentions?

Sorry for such a long post and thankyou for any help that follows.

Bye
