    2018 HSC+ATAR results discussion Thread

    I've actually accepted an offer for arts/commerce at UNSW, and I can't do commerce at USYD as I only did general maths. I'm mostly concerned about whether I should do commerce with arts or science, as I'm still unsure whether the psychology major in arts is accredited. On another note, I'm...

    2018 HSC+ATAR results discussion Thread

    Thanks for sharing this info! A bit confused though, as i remember being told that the psychology major in the bachelor of arts (UNSW) isn't accredited? So you won't be able to go on to do a masters and become a registered psychologist. I've looked on UNSW's website and it's fuzzy with the...

    Exam Thoughts

    Really liked ATB essay question, creative was a bit disappointing for me just because it didn't fit my idea well. How many pages did you all write? I did 13 for essay and 10 for creative, but I have really big handwriting (4-5 words per line). I 'm a bit concerned about my creative tbh...

    What does illness/misadventure cover?

    The NESA website isn't that clear about what cases illness/misadventure can be used, so i was wondering whether anyone here knows specifics/has experience filing one. I've heard that in the case of illness, it has to be so severe that it would warrant hospitalisation. And that mental illness...

    Hissssstory Extension

    Part 1 i was pretty happy with, i wrote about film/popular history too. Kinda freaking out about part 2 though, i went way overboard on part 1 (10 pages) and only had 40 minutes for part 2. Ended upwith only 4.5 pages. How screwed am i? Ugh so mad at myself cause this happened to me in paper 1...

    Eng Adv Stimuli and Essay Questions Prediction?

    Any Mod B Yeat's poem predictions? Irish Airman, Leda and the Swan and When You are Old are the only ones which haven't been specified yet. Second Coming has been specified, but way back in 2012. Pretty worried it might be 2nd Coming, i really hate that one. In 2014 and 2015 they didn't...

    2018ers Chit-Chat Thread

    Hey guys, so i took a really long break after trials and i still haven't done ANY study at all for HSC externals yet. My notes actually aren't complete, should i spend the next week finishing my notes (it'll probably take that long) but only have 3 weeks do do past papers? I've forgotten a lot...

    Just studying half the modern syllabus points?

    Hi guys, So my modern trial is in 2 days and tbh i haven't really studied much at all. However, my modern teacher has been really helpful with trying to reduce our workload, and he confirmed for sure about a few dot points that WON'T be in the trial: - WWI: Spring offensive + Allied...

    School said they're giving me 0 if a miss a trials exams

    If i were to do pathways, it would be through TAFE. However, i'm trying to avoid that prospect as much as possible, i understand the potential benefits, it's just due to personal reasons.

    School said they're giving me 0 if a miss a trials exams

    Thanks for all your advice every one, i really appreciate it. Basically i only have 2 options. Do pathways and complete half my units next year, or do 5 trials consecutively next week. Otherwise, i get 0 My situation is kinda hard to explain, since its not a physical illness. I fully...

    School said they're giving me 0 if a miss a trials exams

    My parents called NESA and my mum said they were really vague. Apparently they said the internal mark is 'assessment based' and implied that schools aren't supposed to give estimates? I have no idea what to do now

    School said they're giving me 0 if a miss a trials exams

    Most schools seem to give an estimate mark if a student misses a trial exam. However, my school said that if i miss one i'll get an automatic 0. They said that they're not allowed to give estimates and that other schools are breaking the rules. I'm worried that my school is incorrect, as i've...
