Currently a studying student at University of Adelaide, studying Bachelor of Finance and Bachelor of Mathematical and Computer Sciences. I am planning to get into the area of financial data analytics in the future, possibly working as a risk analyst at one of the big 4 banks in the future. The way this course is currently run means that I have to do three loads of coursework in the "two" degrees. I am under alot of stress right now, having to balance two jobs and 5 courses in one semester, as I had to take another course to catch up with the rest of the cohort in maths. My current job is at a IT company, however there is no technical work so to speak so far. The other is HJ.
My current 5 courses are, Economics, Financial Markets, Maths A, Maths B and Programming.
I really didn't do well in maths in high school, so is there a chance that I wouldn't have as high of a chance if I were to drop my maths classes to focus purely on just Finance and Computer Sciences? I am considering this options as I didn't get a good grade for Maths and I am worried taking double maths will bomb my GPA.
I would love to hear from anyone in this sort of field, or anyone who has/had been in a similar sort of situation like me.
