    High Schools results and admission to uni

    Most would come from private schools tbh - there has been heaps of articles of kids from Redlands, Scots and Shore getting into Ivies. Probably bc they have the money to afford it and also the schools provide the IB

    Questions about the Dalyell Scholars program

    You can choose units from other faculties. In your degree you should still have spare units for electives as well. If there are units that you actually wanna do then do it but if you're not very interested in the program then there's no point. Pretty sure you can drop out of the program as well...

    Band 6 cutoff predictions

    According to one of my teachers at my school, who was a hsc marker this year, they marked really harshly, hence there were less band 6s. However, this didn't affect your atar at all

    American University Foreign Language Requirements?

    ^^^ yeah agree. Shouldn't really matter anyway as it's not really part of the curriculum here. My friend just got into Princeton and I'm pretty sure she didn't take any languages

    2018 HSC+ATAR results discussion Thread

    But failure is relative to the person! For example, someone at a selective school with those marks might think that they failed, bc everyone else around them would be getting above 95 for all of their subjects. They also might feel like a failure if they had wanted to get into a difficult course...

    2018 HSC+ATAR results discussion Thread

    wow congrats!!! I'm not too sure bc clearly I haven't state ranked but with maths it's quite competitive so a lot of people would get 100. At this point I think they look at your internal marks, but also they could just give out state ranks to everyone who got 100 and do something similar to...

    Yeah fair enough - it can be very annoying when people make a big show of it and complain about it non stop, but they just said one sentence that was an honest reflection of how they felt about their results.

    hahah chill. people have different expectations so it's fair for them to be upset over marks that might be considered good for you. it's not like they're whinging about it all the time to you
