    what subjects to pick, and what courses to apply for, to become a doctor without wasting your money and time

    urgent: Im starting my year 11 this year. what supplies and books should I take?

    Probably not the answer you want to here but stationary/organisation tools is entirely personal preference. Some things work well for some but not others, and its ultimatley about what works best for you. Personally I found having those 240 pages kegi spiral bound books with a different colour...

    Success One Series vs. Strive

    Typically the band 6 cut off is 83-86. Considering this test was on the easier side, i would say ~86 would be the cut off.

    HSC Chemistry Exam Solutions / Thoughts

    The strongest acid was CF3COOH, and the strongest base was F-. Tbf i only knew that because after a 10h binge of Breaking Bad i decided to look up about hydroflouric acid, and saw that it was weak but corrosive, IIRC i looked it up after the exam and CF3COOH has a pKa of like -0.25, so it is...

    Economics predictions/exam thoughts

    That's what I mean about a "most likely" approach. His CAD statement does make sense, but it is not is what is most likely to happen. If they take this approach he is probably looking at a 2 or 3
