    Do You Need To Have A Certain Amount Of PRELIM Hours For A Course?

    My friends have been switching subjects late year 11 and I was wondering if the low hours in the courses will be an issue? I believe you don't need to do the prelim course to do the HSC course as NESA allows you to switch subjects until mid year 12?

    should I start english adv tutoring year 11? coaching college or private tutor?

    Our school doesn't offer standard English for year 11 or 12, and so everyone is basically forced to do advanced english. I just got my Eng advanced marks back and for the writing section, I got 11/15 for an assessment following a stimulus. Thankfully, there was another part to the assessment...

    Do I need to retake my HSC (and repeat Year 11 and 12) if I want to get into University?
