    A message to 2015'ers

    In light of all the advice that is being passed around recently, I'd like to offer my own perspective on the HSC. The do X hours of study per day thing is stupid. There is a whole year ahead of you. The HSC is an emotional roller coaster and you will undoubtedly go through highs and lows. On...

    Pressure & Rate of reaction

    How come I never see sample answers talking about increasing pressure to increase rate of reaction (assuming gaseous reaction) as opposed to temperature? Like in the Haber process with questions involving "balance", temperature is a balance between yield and rate of reaction; so why not say...

    How to draw line of best fit?

    I'm unsure how long the line is meant to extend to E.g. if the domain of my points takes place from x=1 to x=3, should my line only extend from x=1 to x=3 or go past it? Look at Q22 http://www.boardofstudies.nsw.edu.au/hsc_exams/2013/pdf_doc/2013-marking-guide-physics.pdf They extend...

    Graphs to prove inequalities

    Q: Prove tan x > x for 0 < x < pi/2 Am I allowed to just graph the two and show it? My only problem with this method is that it is not really proving it (if I didn't know better, I could have just purposely constructed the two graphs such that tan x > x since I know that's what the question wants)

    General question about probability and counting

    Is there a way to be consistently correct or confident in answers? In an exam there's no way to check if you missed a condition in your solution and so if your brain is not thinking right then that's such an easy way to lose marks... I really hate it

    Reference to critical interpretations

    I've been reading some exemplar responses and noticed that not many people include critical interpretations in their essay response. Why is this? Part of the rubric says to critically consider the perspectives of others and I thought it'd be smart to explore these perspectives in your essays...
