    No need to replace common words with complex ones with the same resemblance just to make you look smart is what I'm saying. Also if you didn't know he had a different signature to his MBBS one at the time.

We get your point that you have a massive IQ and are, in your own words, "definitely going to get into Usyd MBBS". Stop being so ostentatious....

    She probably is very bright, but there's always the chance she did more than you thought. Also, I'm sure you are surprised by how much information a bright student can retain with a night of study. (Despite it being exponentially more overtime)

    don't you find it less comforting? I don't find it comforting that a person who doesnt do work can get 97+ when the majority of kids who get 85+ put in consistent work throughout the year. But I do suppose it shows that the system is able to differentiate the brighter kids from the rest, meaning harder uni courses probably have more capable students.

    I dunno...I could go either way with whether this is a could thing.

    I would be so angry if someone in our cohort didn't try and got a high ATAR! Some people just confuse me.

    Maybe she studied without telling you. I know some people that work hard and tell nobody, not because they are modest or anything. I guess some people would even tell others they don't try so they wont feel as shit if they dont get what they expected. Cynical yes, but these people are quite common.
    Those people are very, very common!

    The guy above me and I came 4th and 5th at our school and we barely tried.

    But I hardly think we did well compared to everyone else in the state.

    There will always be people like that. At the end of the day, it's their choice to prioritise however they wish, it isn't really anyone's right to judge what one should/should not aim for in life.

    Just stay ranked above them (which shoulnd't be a problem if they don't care) and they won;t affect you at all.

    Wow, I don't think that's accurate, LOL.

    I'd say if anything, CPU is equivalent to IQ =). Not taht IQ matters at all in the HSC.

    iq means crack all in hsc lol, as one american president said, persistence has solved, and will always solve, all the problems of the human race. Calvin Coolidge it was, i believe. Persistence is what gets you where you want to go, high iq is a gamble in the hsc if you lack persistence

    IQ is probably not an ideal measure of brain power, anyway.

    Personally, I do think that your raw intelligence DOES affect your HSC performance in some way but hard work can overcome this.
