    If you're considering this course, here's an example of what you should not do (From an Extension 2 dropout)

    Now note that I am significantly more daft than the average person, so a lot of this might come off as common sense, but in case this might help anyone, here are my mistakes in my time during this course: - I have always been a very disorganised person who procrastinates until the night...

    Are most top ATAR scorers at private schools scholarship students, brought in to boost exam results?

    I got into private school (typically ranking low 20s in the state) on a full academic scholarship and I can say this is probably not the norm because I am an embarrassment to all academic scholarship holders (and its a miracle my school has kept me) but I am definitely not going to get a top...

    Does the HSC tend to be much harder than trials?

    It's rather frustrating really but I'm someone who's used to studying last minute and retaining information just for 1 exam (and forgetting it quickly after) I studied for my trials in a week (going through maths in focus yr11/yr12 for 6 days then finished the nesa specimen paper in the last few...

    Does the HSC tend to be much harder than trials?

    Thanks a lot for the insight! I did feel that it was quite surprisingly easy, are there any particular challenging papers (with solutions) that you could recommend?

    Will my overall school rank be "average" or above average with these results? Fluked my 3rd assessment super hard

    yea task 3 was the least weighted task (20%) whilst task 1 was 25% %, task 2 was 25% and trials 30%

    Will my overall school rank be "average" or above average with these results? Fluked my 3rd assessment super hard

    3rd column is ranks. And got a really low percentage,...I'm just aiming for average or above since 50% of my cohort tends to get a band 6. I think they average percentages and not ranks so with my super low mark for Task 3, do you guys think it's still possible to place average overall?

    Do only 5% of people get 95 atar and above?

    Not sure how the atar and percentages work, thanks for any input!

    Doing 4u English and 4u Maths (+ Economics)

    would you say that 4 unit english (by itself, excluding ext 1 and advanced) is more time consuming than your typical 2 unit subject? (like physics, economics)

    Doing 4u English and 4u Maths (+ Economics)

    So I’m in Year 11 and my most likely choice of subjects for Year 12 are as the title indicates. I’d like to get an idea of how good/bad undertaking both 4u english and 4u maths would be. Most people have been responding to me with “oh you must be so smart!” but I am not doing amazing in either...
