Hey everyone,

im in year 11 now and English has surprisingly been my strongest subject. For context, im at one of the top performing schools in NSW and rank top 3 overall and came first in English last year.

now im eligible to do EAL/D as I moved to Australia in year 7. Do you guys think I should do English advanced for the academic rigour, or do EAL/D for the prospect of a state rank? Which option would maximise my ATAR?

thank you everyone for your help!

If you can excel in English Advanced then you are not suited to EALD, why not push for an English Advanced state rank?

pushing for eng adv state rank is honestly a weird goal
if they do eald they won't need to put in like any effort as compared to advanced so like you can spend all that time on other subjects
idk about y'all but eng is such a time sink
