    Alright best of luck, and remember you don't need to go to a selective school to get a good mark. So whatever the outcome continue working hard, and if you do get in be prepared for the competitiveness and don't let it overwhelm you.

    What do you people think about ATAR notes (Chem)?

    At the end of the day the Atar notes book was written by Jake, so it's probably really good for the HSC.

    Havent done hsc physics

    Yeah your not screwed at all. You'll just be new to some of the concepts, but in terms of solving problems, those who have done just HSC Physics will have no advantage over you

    Selective for year 10

    Girraween is a great school that consistently ranks higher than Caringbah. What are you on about?
  5. Drdusk


    As far as I know it is quite important. However I didn't apply in year 11 so I can't say it with 100% accuracy.

    y10 work exp (any fields, desperate)

    Yeah of course, he should be fine with it. Your careers advisor is there to help you in the first place.

    Nope. Only thing you can do is take up Maths Extension 2 which requires you to be in at least Maths Extension 1, but you cannot for example transition from Maths Adv to Ext 1.

    What the hell should i do? Does Commerce (HR)/Science (Psychology) make sense?

    Is is called a Double Bachelors degree. I'll clear up some confusion. The degree is the actual name of your program which is Bachelor of Commerce/Bachelor of Science. In each of these degrees, you focus your time in a certain area. This is known as a Major. Your 'Major' for a Bachelor of...

    Question regarding syllabus change.

    Oh come on it hasn't changed thaaaat much. The sample paper they provided is still 70% writing essays. Adding 50 more formulas for e.g in Physics, doesn't make the course harder. There's absolutely no emphasis on critical thinking or gaining an understanding. I would still be inclined to say...

    Commerce degree with computer science or math/statistics?

    While I will agree UNSW is a G08 uni which has good academics in Math/STEM, it still has its share of reallly bad lecturers. For math I've had 2 really shit lecturers and 2 reaally amazing ones, and the shit ones aren't shit because they don't know their stuff, rather because they can't teach it...

    Which one am I more likely to make more money in? Electrical Engineering or Software Engineering?

    I agree with Blyatman and Bball however I would have some inclination to say your marks at least have a minor influence on you getting your first job, because everyone is on an even playing field.

    Will 2U show up on my HSC transcript if I am taking 4U?

    I did the HSC last year, and no nothing about 2u showed up on my transcript.

    Computer Engineering

    I mean it depends on what you want to pursue. Elec and Comp sci are very field specific whereas Comp Engi is much more broader by the looks of it. So you'll have the qualifications to design computer systems in a wide variety of fields.

    Commerce degree with computer science or math/statistics?

    In the latest QS rankings, iirc I think UNSW ranked better than USYD in Maths by quite a bit. However the general consensus I've heard is that USYD is better for Pure Mathematics and UNSW is better for applied. UNSW has a non-existent social life rn lol. Were loaded with work with the new...
