    how to improve in english?

    okay i topped my ext 1 english cohort in yr 11 and my biggest tips are as follows: - context. obviously don't go completely ham and write your whole essay on it unless it's the question, but if you can talk about WHY the author wrote what they did that'll add a lot more credibility to your...

    Is it worth doing english ext?

    i do ext english and love it (although obviously i'm an english girlie, and it helps that i topped in year 11) - assessments will differ school to school i believe - in year 11 we had a discursive, an essay, and an irp, the latter being the only assessment i think every school does. - extension...

    Burnouts

    yeah i totally agree with masaken. i suffered from severe burnout in year 8 and 9 and most of that was because i didn't give myself the rest i needed. to prevent it in the future - obviously allow yourself breaks but also setting little goals for myself worked wonders - today my goal is to...

    do graded math classes matter in year 9?

    oh i used to always make silly mistakes in maths (still do tbf) and i got 53% on my maths adv trial bc of them. i managed to get like 95% on the hsc itself (like 2 months later), so i can try to give you some tips? - practice tests are literally my love, do the questions and then GO THROUGH THE...

    do graded math classes matter in year 9?

    meditation and breathing scare me - i lie there and immediately Every Thought Ever enters my brain. maybe i should try it again although i literally can't sit still

    Fort st high school + north Sydney high school

    i thought they were somewhat affiliated with similar values and level of pressure but again, not super familiar with selective schools - despite both my parents going to ruse i never sat the test. good luck though - i'm sure wherever you go you'll be great

    Fort st high school + north Sydney high school

    okay i'm not super familiar with selective schools but i thought i'd offer my two cents - if north sydney boys is anything like north sydney girls, it's a very stressful and very competitive environment. that was an opinion given to me by a few people, but again there are a bunch of people who...

    i do history extension!! i guess the thing to keep in mind is make sure you're analysing the creation of history not history itself - like i don't know much about the Mayan decline but you could talk about the proposed theories and the historical evidence behind them and the historians...
