    NAPLAN:More then half NSW students would fail first HSC test

    i wouldnt have, but i still got shit marks this morning. Dont think what they're doing now is the best idea out there. Get rid of shit teachers, audit faculties which under perform and reward good teachers and maybe you'll get a good crop of students.

    The use of statistics in legal essays.

    Tips for memorising essays?

    My tip: Don't. It's almost impossible to memorize an entire essay. However, it's not hard to memorize a good thesis and supporting arguments. Essay plans are better preps than rewriting entire essays. As for the short story, keep a loose idea at the back of your head with a couple of...

    afraid of not getting into any uni?

    When your atar is released in mid-December, you will have a small window of time (couple of days i think) to change your preferences if your Atar is lower than the cut-off, regardless, keep your dream course number 1 - as cut-offs change every year. After the window to change preferences has...
