    To all those who went to selective high schools

    Yeah, I don’t think ALL selective people are like that. I was probably just unlucky, or the universe was showing me how not to act. Maybe I’m too much of a white girl, but I found the overly-competitive and jealous nature of some of my former classmates really, really unattractive. Moreover, the...

    To all those who went to selective high schools

    Haha, thank you! Yeah, it was a very weird and uncomfortable period of my life... like I’m just quietly going about my own work, not bothering anybody, and some girl just decides to start a vendetta against me because I rank 1st? In the end, she didn’t even end up surpassing me, so much for the...

    Help with hsc subjects please asap

    I would only pick English Extension 1 if you genuinely enjoy English. However, the content is vastly different to Advanced English, and also a bit more difficult as you learn about critical theories and the genre of texts within themselves. It's almost like learning a completely new subject...

    To all those who went to selective high schools

    By the way, in terms of competitiveness, I have a story of a girl who went to find a history tutor just because she wanted to “beat me” in a history exam. There was a lot involved. I wouldn’t say ~bullying~, but tbh would rather have done without the experience. She was basically my first...

    To all those who went to selective high schools

    Besides “prestige”, not that great. If you came from a school other than the primary those kids went to, then you will find it very hard to fit in, at least in my experience. For example, I went to a Christian primary school and got into selective without tutoring, unlike the rest of them. Also...

    Listening to good music while fantasising is my downfall when it comes to distractions. :(

    Is this sufficient enough for a 3 marker?

    Briefly outline Greek at Pompeii and Herculaneum. In your answer, use Source A and your own knowledge. Greek influences at Pompeii and Herculaneum are seen in their art and religion. Source A is a particular example of Greek influence emanating through artistic creation, as this mosaic...

    2018ers Chit-Chat Thread

    It's funny how I was so willing and ready to sacrifice sleep for success, but now I know that it is actually an imperative component to perform well. :( If only we could take one second to press a button embedded into our bodies that automatically gives us the energy that we would've otherwise...

    How disadvantaged would I be due to the subjects I chose?

    Of course. I didn't try as hard in science/math subjects from Year 9 onwards haha, so my general impression of those subjects was just applying formulas.

    What time does everyone go to bed? How many hours of sleep do you all get?

    2018ers Chit-Chat Thread

    Lucky! I love Robert Frost. It would've been amazing if we could do him for AOS. We're doing The Motorcycle Diaries, which according to my teachers, was used to obtain many Band 6s in previous years. It's okay - very stream-of-consciousness-ey and reminds me of On The Road by Jack Keruoac, which...

    2018ers Chit-Chat Thread

    Does anyone feel like time is moving way too fast? 2017 FLEW by. We're almost in the middle of January... School starts in 2 weeks... HSC in 8 months... and I'll be 18 by then! I read an article that time itself is not moving fast, but instead our perception of time is accelerating due to...

    I have a friend whose sister did really well for her ATAR last year. She didn't do any work during the summer holidays, as many high-achievers have said. She also noted that some of her peers who did seemed to have burned out - not saying that it happens for everyone who worked in the holidays...

    Answering the Reliability/Usefulness Question

    Would you recommend dedicating one - I wouldn't say paragraph, but section/part to Source A, discussing OMCAPRU, and then discuss Source B directly under Source A or interweave both analysis of sources together?

    Question

    I also wonder how people structure these types of questions? (the Using Sources X and X ...) My textbook recommends a general "introduction", but nothing too lengthy, before going onto draw information from the source then your own knowledge. There is no need for a formal "introduction and...

    Question

    For the short-answer question: Outline the events leading to the 1918 Armistice - Do we mention only the events leading to the 1918 Armistice or the signing and procedures of the 1918 Armistice itself as well?
