    Don't really like my degree and unsure of what to do now.

    So I'm currently studying Actuarial Studies at MQ and I'm really not enjoying myself or the degree. Census date is approaching and I'm not sure if I should drop out of the course or not. I don't really know what I actually want to do now, so is it too much of an extreme measure to drop out of...

    I am deliberating between doing a B Sc / M Math Sc (majoring in Financial Maths and Statistics and Econometrics) at Sydney Uni vs a B Actl Stds/ B App Fin at Macquarie. My ATAR is sufficient for entry into either course, but I'm not sure which one to pick. Macquarie is offering a $10k a year...

    Disparity between assessment mark and HSC exam mark?

    What happens when there is a big difference (15-20 marks) between my moderated internal mark and my HSC exam mark? I’m expecting to get a Band 4 in economics, as I’m really not prepared, but I’m ranked 5th overall internally. My school gets 5-10 eco band 6’s each year, so I’d say that the 5th...

    What should I do with my life?

    I honestly have no idea what I want to pursue in terms of a career/uni degree, and I'm feeling quite lost at the moment. I'm decent at my subjects at school and they're all sorta interesting but I don't envision them translating into employment, putting it really bluntly. Any suggestions on...

    Hey everyone! I know this is really early but I'm curious as to what ATAR I am on track to achieving. I don't really have a goal at the moment but I'd like to get over 90. Here are my cumulative marks so far (weighted averages). My school hasn't given individual ranks out yet. 2018 School...

    Year 11 subject "lines"?

    How are Year 11 classes timetabled at your school? At mine, they get put into sets of 6 lines, each line consisting of 2 units, so everyone does exactly 12 units. However, there are lots of subject clashes, and a lot of 1 unit "filler courses" that terminate, so that's not good :( Does any other...
