    Don't know how to take notes

    Is 14 units too much? 0-0

    I did 14 units and have mixed feelings. I wasnt as confident in 2 subjects and just kept them since my results were decent+ had mild interest in them. ATAR wise, in hindsight, I would have been better off dropping one of them. *shrug* it depends on you

    Hey can anyone give me a few tips for my creative writing piece plz!!!

    What happens if you don’t turn up to a HSC exam?

    had a conversation with someone yesterday; he got an n-award for not turning up so he couldnt get an atar or something- in that sense, it's not the same as getting a zero (from what i heard)
