    99.95 ATAR - STATE RANK 5th Phys, 12th Chem Dedicated Tutor

    Bump for Beryl :) I've known her for a while now and she is an incredibly friendly and helpful person. I'd really recommend her to anyone who is aiming for a very high B6/state rank because her knowledge of the intricacies of the HSC and understanding is second to none from everyone I've met.

    First day of O-Week. Get there ASAP- last year we sold out tickets in 2 hours... ^What Shadow said. You can get a friend to sign up if you have their complete details and also payment in full. Hmm depends on your financial situation- if money isn't really an issue, then come because it'll...

    2014 Main Round Cut-offs

    Tbh though I think its very misleading to compare the cut-offs for law because UNSW gives so many more bonus points than USyd, whether through AAA or EAP etc.

    Cost of travelling to UNSW?

    MyBus 2. A lot of people get My Multi's though because that gives you train and buses as well- that's $27/week if you want a My Multi 2.

    Economics Q- Exchange rates

    Again, remember the distinction between short term and long term. I'll answer about imports given that's what the original question was about and then its just the reverse for exports. When the AUD goes down, imports become more expensive. Originally, if a car cost $100 USD (at AUD:USD=1:1)...

    Economics Q- Exchange rates

    The key phrase in that is in the short term. Considering that in the short term, imports are relatively inelastic, if the $AUD goes down, we have to pay more for any given resource, and hence import expenditure goes up. Let's say if Australia needed 100,000 tonnes of steel- if the AUD goes down...

    Commerce/Law at USyd or UNSW?

    I'm not quite sure what relevance this answer has, or why the post was made today, given that UAC prefences have closed? Anyway, here are a few things to consider: General: - Whichever uni you go to, you will be there for the next five years. There's no point going somewhere that you'll hate...

    Commerce/LAWS, Usyd or UNSW?

    This. Realistically at the end of the day, you're choosing between the two top law schools in Sydney and the differentiating factor when it comes to employment will be things like marks, extra-curricular, communication ability etc. I personally went to UNSW over USyd- I felt the environment...

    Share your 2013 HSC results here

    How did 22 people get 99+ in 4U (firstly how do you even know the number?). If so, the marks are becoming much higher-99 a few years ago would have been a very high state rank, if not first in state. I know in 2011, 98 was 3rd in state.

    Tutor or Non-tutor

    This is all a matter of personal preference. Don't get a tutor because its 'the thing'. I never got tutoring and I achieved quite a bit over 95 so its possible. I found self study to be very effective but some people learn much better with tutoring- I know personally when I tutor people now...
