    Do people buy textbooks?

    Hi there! I'm a 2018 graduate and I'm planning to sell my textbooks. However, I do know that the HSC syllabus has changed so I'm wondering do students still purchase second-hand textbooks from the year/grade above or do they just cop and purchase the new textbooks for the new syllabus? Thank you!

    Stressed - haven't done much

    I graduated yesterday and it had only just hit me that there's barely anytime before HSC. How many past papers have you guys done or just anything in general? I've done barely anything and I have just refined my essays (haven't practiced with any questions) and it's starting to stress me...

    Always napping help

    Hi, Since Easter holidays ended, I've been napping for 2 hours most days after school from 5-7pm and sometimes I don't wake up at all - not until 6:30am when I have to get up for school. This is starting to have a big impact on me since I can't stay awake during those times and I've tried...

    State ranking English

    Do Advanced English state rankers basically lose no marks in Internals? A good friend of mine has a lot of potential but lost quite a few marks in Assessment Task 1 and wonders if she can recover from it, seeing how she did extremely well in Half Yearlies. Thankyou!

    Bombing Half Yearlies

    Hi, so it turns out I didn't do well for my Half Yearlies at all. At all. Is it still possible to do well for HSC? Like getting over 96 ATAR? I have only one subject that should be able to carry my overall ATAR but the rest are looking very grim (Especially 2u/3u maths) Thank you :(
