    What is more important, rank or marks??

    as an 04 student, trust me, ranks are most important, if ur assessment marks are all 40% yet u get first in every subject.. well then u go get higher marks say 80% in the external exam and all ur assessment marks get moderated to 80% so ur way better off. make sure ur in the top few of each...

    Tips: Studying for Physics

    as a '04 physics student i recommend to you all summarising the syllabus, or at least writing up notes based on the syllabus, and doing lots of past papers, there is a text book out called Success One Physics or something, best book ever. especially since the science hsc exams are based entirely...

    2005 EES people?

    im a 2004 EES student.. it's a very easy subject. one major hint for this subject (and all sciences) is go completely off the syllabus with ur revision cos the questions are exactly from there. so just go thru all the dot points and summarise them. trust me on this it worked for me.

    Why is UAi getting lower each year?

    UAI doesnt get lower. basically to dtermine ur UAI they do all their scaling shit then add up the marks to form an aggregate out of 500 (10 units, each unit is out of 50) and so once they have this aggregate they rank u from 1st to last, (1st has close to 500, last has close to 0) and then they...

    multiple choice

    how can they have the same velocity. think about it as half-flight motion, if u drop somethin off a cliff and at the same time u push somethin horizontally off a cliff, both land at the same time.

    multiple choice

    no. its 8/ square root of 1- 0.6squared/1squared 0.6 x 0.6 is 0.36, 1-0.36 is 0.64 square root of 0.64 is 0.8 8 / 0.8 = 10
