    Can you buy textbooks for tablets? i.e. Kindle or Ipad?

    Hey guys, just wondering if it were possible to buy your allocated textbooks online and read them on a tablet instead of buying or borrowing a physical copy?

    Missed ATAR Cut-off for my DREAM course by 0.05!?!

    So as we all know, offers came out last night (18th Jan). I've had my eyes on B commerce at UNSW (like many others) all year.

    Do bonus points correlate to ATAR points?

    This may sound like a silly question but I would really like confirmation. Do the bonus points from universities equal the same amount in extra ATAR points. i.e. if I get 2 bonus points from a band 5 in Advanced English for courses at UNSW does that bump my ATAR up 2 points when I am considered...

    And the Fish appears in EVERY SINGLE SDD PAPER

    So. Basically, for some reason the Software Design and Development exam writers have an obsession with putting something about fish and/or fingers into the SDD exams. This year they tried to subtly get away with it by using the Software Development company "Salmon Software Enterprises", "PHYSH"...

    Do you believe in true love? (srs)

    Do you believe in true love? As in, an undeniable, unconditional and infallible love for another person? Do you define true love as something else? Do you believe that hollywood movies and 90's indie pop songs provide an unrealistic preconception of the idyllic relationship with someone of the...

    I wrote the answers to all my questions on the exam so i could take them out and my teacher could mark them. some of them I got wrong, my teacher said I got about 95/100 so I tried to remember the actual answers to the ones I got wrong.

    When I'm in a math exam I have this fear of doing any questions without the aid of my calculator. For example, even simple addition like 35 + 15 I MUST do. I already know the answer but I will use my calculator to check because I am petrified of making those stupid rookie mistakes. Does anyone...
