    How much will English Standard drag my ATAR down?

    It won't affect your ATAR much given that you do well in your other subjects and you do well (or somewhat well) in English. I got 87 for Standard English and received an ATAR of 98.70.

    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

    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

    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.

    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...

    Solve for x

    $\log_2(\log_3(x)) = 5 \Longrightarrow \log_3(x) = 2^5 \Longrightarrow x = 3^{2^5}$

    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

    UNSW OPTOMETRY EAS estimates

    Without 95+ there is little chance. Someone I know got right below 95 and didn't get an offer

    UNSW OPTOMETRY EAS estimates

    In my year, they dropped the ATAR requirements by 4 points (to 95) for guaranteed entry into optometry for EAS

    Is my HSC doomed?

    ^ If you underperform in trials, but your overall ranking is still fine, then you will be okay
