    Book suggestions

    I hear the Count of Monte Cristo is quite exciting for a classic, but I've been putting it off. Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov has great prose yet still remains fairly readable, albeit not the most exciting plot, which may or may not help with your English. I would recommend the annotated version...

    How much math homework do you guys get? Most effective method of doing exercises by myself?

    Absolutely lol. It was cancelled for a year or so because of covid, but I used to go fortnightly and now I'm on track for weekly detention next term. Luckily, I didn't have to go to daily holiday detention during December. Small blessings I guess.

    How much math homework do you guys get? Most effective method of doing exercises by myself?

    Okay, thanks everyone! I'll try and get some chapters + past papers in over the week. And yeah, I do go to Kurt.

    Kurt Entrance exam passing mark

    Seriously though, it depends. For younger years like 8-9, you can basically flunk most of it and get in provided you don't make any stupid mistakes that Kurt hates, like cancelling the x in x/(x+1). I don't know the specific mark for the later years, but if you don't already do coaching (e.g...

    How much math homework do you guys get? Most effective method of doing exercises by myself?

    I go to a top 10 selective school and barely get any math homework. Like, maybe half an exercise, usually even less every two days. I'm starting to get progressively more worried that I'll miss out on some concepts/question styles compared to the other classes (I do go to coaching though). Would...

    Where/how to buy homework from tutoring centres?

    Thanks, but I have a ton of papers actually! It's just that I'm mostly hoping to find extensive questions for each module individually as I go through them because I'm doing my prelims and most of the resources I've found are for the hsc.

    Where/how to buy homework from tutoring centres?

    Bump because I'm still searching for modules 2-4 in particular. I know I probably won't be able to get anything from the centres, but if anyone knows a recent grad/year 12, please let me know.

    Where/how to buy homework from tutoring centres?

    I'm hoping to self-study for chemistry over the term, but honestly I don't know what to do for exam-style questions. If anyone knows coaching colleges that let outsiders buy their resources, or anyone willing to sell their homework, please let me know!

    Modern History or Japanese Continuers?

    So my subject selection is soon and I was wondering which one I should choose. I have already decided on my other subjects and they are non negotiable. I enjoy and do well in both history and Japanese. Should I base it on which one I do better in or like more, even if the difference is minimal...
