    choosing between unis...

    Any of you uni kiddies have the problem of deciding which uni to go to after you got your offers? or did you know which you wanted before hand, if so was that because you went to all the open days and info days etc. ? I'm wondering as all my preferences are in sydney and I'm about equally...

    i was tossing up between b) and d) but i figured that in the diagram u don't see salt ions on either side of the membrane, that's how i justified my answer anyhoo. yeah i also was unsure of 13, i knew how big red blood cells were, but not white so i said, but i now think that is wrong. but other...

    Frontline - help with question

    The 2003 HSC question for Frontline is what I'm finding difficult. "Truth is not Simple" kinda goes against everything that Frontline represents, I thought. The only things i can think to write about is the fact that editing takes time and effort, otherwise truth seems more simple. Maybe I'm...
