    I feel sad, No motivation to study. Im behind in all my subjects help

    Just sit down and tell yourself you can study for 10 minutes. Doesn't seem like much, easy enough. Once that 10 minutes is up you've already got momentum so it's easier to keep going.

    How do HSC marks work?

    Your internal MARK counts for nothing except determining your internal rank. Because every school marks differently and has different assessments, the marks across the board are not equal. The only thing that is equal is the external (HSC) exam. So they determine the internal marks from how that...

    Students ditching science in droves

    One of my old science teachers used to always complain about the science syllabus for years 7-10. They leave you with strict instructions on what to cover, so you're only really covering the boring bits. A whole lot of fun things that they used to be able to do have now been banned because it's...

    Students ditching science in droves

    Did you ever have grammar classes and other English skills in high school? I wanted to die every time I had to enter the classroom it was so boring.

    Thoughts on Private Tutors???

    - High HSC marks in the subjects they tutor - Explains concepts clearly regardless of what mark they got in the HSC - The cost for tuition - High ATAR - Studying education at Uni or possessing an education degree I put high ATAR so low because I know people who completely excelled in one or two...

    Legally, am I allowed to release my HSC music 1 composition for digital distribution?

    Re: Legally, am I allowed to release my HSC music 1 composition for digital distribut I would think that if you weren't allowed to distribute it the board would have made you sign forms stating so. If they haven't given you any indication of your rights to distribute it I don't see why you...

    For all those who got 90+ ATARS....

    I didn't study AT ALL throughout the year. I didn't do homework most of the time, and sometimes didn't even pay attention in class. (I was always tired). I did all my assignments the night before they were due, (I don't recommend this at all), and only studied for tests when they were right in...

    Is there any way to find out what subjects were used to calculate my ATAR?

    It's 2 best units of English, so yes, extension can count as one of your units if it will scale better than your advanced mark. You can also have more than 2 units of English contribute.

    Will my school hold me back??

    I went to a private school at ~300 and I would say the majority of the grade didn't care at all until the day before the English exams when they suddenly had a freak. It would have brought down a couple of my friends who worked their asses off but didn't get what they were aiming for. Also the...

    Results Check / Raw Marks / Exam Responses

    This is what I've always heard. That's why I'm a bit lost as to why my HSC marks were so low. The aligned marks that I got were similar to a raw mark that I would normally get in that subject - and all my teachers have been HSC markers and have said they're marking stricter than in the HSC to...
