1. ### how badly will english standard impact my atar?

So 98 is my aligned mark, and as Drdusk said, my raw mark would be around 95%, I'm not sure what my exact raw mark is though
2. ### how badly will english standard impact my atar?

Standard doesn't affect your atar too much, I got: Standard English - 87 Maths 3u - 99 Maths 4u - 98 Chemistry - 89 Physics - 91 and I ended up with an atar of 98.70. Getting a 90+ atar with standard english is pretty much as doable as getting a 90+ atar with advanced english

Prairiewood is in the area as well, and their rankings are not too bad

7. ### 14 Units for Year 12

14 units is definitely a lot, however, if you genuinely enjoy all 14 units and have the time to study for all your units, then it is okay. I knew a people who have done extremely well in the HSC with 14 units.
8. ### 4U Polynomial question HELP !!

can't do the question right now but i assume that this is how you do it: since x^3 + 3ax^2 + 3bx + c = 0 has a double root then this means that p(x) = x^3 + 3ax^2 + 3bx + c has a double zero. let this double zero be y. then p(y) = 0 and p'(y) = 0. this means that y^3 + 3ay^2 + 3by + c = 0 and...
9. ### Solve for x

\$\log_2(\log_3(x)) = 5 \Longrightarrow \log_3(x) = 2^5 \Longrightarrow x = 3^{2^5}\$
10. ### Study time?

Around 30%, as I needed to study for English, Chemistry and Physics as well :(
11. ### School effecting ATAR?

don't worry, my school's rank was 250+ and I still managed to get a decent atar, just make sure you get good rankings
12. ### UNSW OPTOMETRY EAS estimates

Without 95+ there is little chance. Someone I know got right below 95 and didn't get an offer
13. ### UNSW OPTOMETRY EAS estimates

In my year, they dropped the ATAR requirements by 4 points (to 95) for guaranteed entry into optometry for EAS
14. ### Is my HSC doomed?

^ If you underperform in trials, but your overall ranking is still fine, then you will be okay
15. ### Is my HSC doomed?

Not doing well in your trials will definitely impact your ATAR, but you can still work hard for the HSC exams, which may result in an 80+ ATAR.
