If the topic "Permutations and Combinations" is removed from the new Preliminary Mathematics Extension 1 syllabus, a great amount of confusion will be alleviated from students' minds.

This is as students feel that the topic is not Mathematics related, and instead requires a great deal of Interpretation of the English language. The way in which questions are worded is very poor in both textbooks and examinations, making it extremely hard for students to interpret them. Overall, the majority of students' views on the topic centralise around the idea that the topic doesn't make sense and is too difficult for humans. The topic also has no apparent real life usage.

In general, it will make the course much more enjoyable for Year 11 students.
