    Dropping Ancient history

    I would keep the subject tbh, the amount of stress being on 10-11 units and fear of bombing an exam is not worth it...

    Social networking for HSC period

    tbh I spent so long each night doing maths homework I only had a spare 30-45 minutes, which I'd waste talking to my sister :haha:

    just a few questions

    1. Of course, you've only had one assessment task so far 2. Again, yes 3. I try and translate the information I read into notes I understand - which means making notes takes a long time, however I've noticed it improves my recall and understanding significantly. So I'd go with the former. 4...

    The Other Side of the 12 or More Units Debate

    I'd say the biggest surprise for me (and for a few other people, it seems) was EE2. The best you can do is hope for markers that like your MW I suppose.

    What was your childhood dream job, and what is it now?

    Then: I wanted to be an ornithologist or a wildlife photographer. And then for a time I also wanted to be a pathologist/anesthesiologist/plastic surgeon. Now: I'd like to be some kind of lawyer.

    Is Coaching for HSC Really Necessary?

    I only got tutoring for 3U maths, which was my worst subject that also ended up not counting. imo it wasn't worth it, though to be fair I always disliked maths and was less likely to try hard than subjects I liked and did better at.

    The Other Side of the 12 or More Units Debate

    I have to agree, I dropped to 11 because I thought being on 12/13 would drag down my ATAR. My friend doing 13 units ended up with 99.85, which was in the end significantly higher than my ATAR. I think this may have had something to do with the fact I tended to waste the huge amounts of spare...

    Just find a few techniques here and there and be all "this stark contrast/poignant symbol/etc. is reflective of the discovery of blah blah blah", seemed to work for me :D

    Should I drop Physics, i.e. to 10 units?

    I would keep physics until you've sat a 4U exam tbh
