    How were your assessments?

    How are your assessments going? Were they harder or easier than expected? Personally, I found basically all my subjects straight forward as term 1 is mostly consolidation of last year's work. Yes, I'm just procrastinating the night before my assessment with the most content to memorise :))

    Digitalising Notes

    My school doesn't really use tech at all, so, 99% of the work we do in class is hand written. As a result, all of my notes I've taken in and out of class are handwritten, but the problem is that my hand writing isn't very neat. I've been considering creating a neater, digitalised version of my...

    Studying throughout the term

    Apart from the standard reading texts ahead, making notes/summaries during the term time as you learn content, etc., what are some effective strategies to keep on top of things before crunchtime during exam periods?

    Reading

    Ah right, that was the main goal: to get better at my creative writing, seeing as I'm currently in the Reading to Write common module. My teacher suggested to me that reading widely may help me find a style of writing that I both enjoy and will be able to write well with. Do you have any more...

    I've finally caved. I need to start reading if I want to stand a chance in doing well in english. What suggestions do you guys have for books that aren't super long and have some action (no romantic like stuff)?

    Taking English Ext 1 just for year 11

    hmm yeah, i guess that maybe turning to a private tutor would be better, as black.mamba said ext is quite different to adv so maybe the advantages can't directly be applied, apart from general text composition etc. i'm just not sure if i'm up to ext english and the pretty daunting extra work (ie...

    Taking English Ext 1 just for year 11

    but i fear that either: 1. i spend too much time on ext english, a subject that i know i'm dropping, and not enough on the subjects i'm taking to year 11 2. i don't spend enough time, and it's not worthwhile.

    Taking English Ext 1 just for year 11

    yeah, that's why i don't understand why we must do a minimum of 6 subjects, because i would've probably just dropped geo or eco to pick up ext english.

    Taking English Ext 1 just for year 11

    I've been told that taking ext 1 just for year 11 can be beneficial for your english skills in general. If I do take ext 1, I plan to drop it for year 12. However, the issue is that I have 13 units right now, as my school requires me to take atleast 6 subjects in year 11. Currently, I'm taking...
