Trust me in doesn’t. The biggest disadvantage as such is people mucking around in class and distracting you. However a good student will just go home and revise it. It does not matter.

Also don’t think just because a school is selective it has better teachers. The only schools which you know will have better teachers are private schools and that’s a different story... I have many friends that went and go to top 5 selective schools and there’s heaps of teachers that have no idea what they’re doing...
On the contrary I had amazing teachers in a school ranked 200+. For example my Physics teacher had a degree in Physics from usyd and explained everything in detail.

The disadvantages aren’t to the point where it’s going to hurt your atar even if you work hard. As I said in my previous post the disadvantages are really indirect.
so people who don't go to selective schools are disadvantaged? I don't mean in a bad way. But normally I heard that in selective schools, they are excelled further learning a year's content before so they do exceptionally well.

Tbh in year 11.. it was one of my worst years... So no I didn't have a set timetable but I definitely recommend it. Make sure to make it flexible though cos some days won't go as planned :D good luck in year 11
In year 11 do you get more major projects? Also for math will there be tests based on every topic or will it be altogether in the half yearly?

Yes students are excelled further but that's because they can handle it. Most students in low ranking schools wouldn't be able to hand it and so they don't go ahead.

It really depends on your school.. and each assessment will have a notification sheet where it'll state what you'll be tested on. Pretty sure half yearly is what you have learnt in the two terms.

okay. Wow so any ways on how to prepare for advance math next year?
Learn from a textbook your school is going to use. the textbooks usually have examples on how to do the questions and then exercises following that relate to the examples. That is the best approach when first learning content through self study

When I did year 11 I don't think I did anything in the holidays before but it depends on your current math ability. I wasn't having trouble with the year 10 concepts at the time so I didn't feel like I needed to learn ahead straight away.
