    you could always repeat at school?
    but thats such a waste..because at school there is so many distractions...thats why at tafe they can cram year 11 and 12 in the one year
    you should go to the tafe website and look into it..

    I see and i remember,
    I do and i understand.

    Congrats on finishing anyway! You might be surprised by your marks, so don't stress too much about it for now. Wait and see what happens. Don't listen to people who call you a dumbass.. you've finished your HSC and I don't care what anybody says, it's a HUGE accomplishment. If you care this much about it, you can't be a dumbass

    It's a much better environment for a lot of people. Everybody's really supportive and respect each other for giving it another go or whatever. It's also nowhere near as competitive, which is one thing that sucked about high school.

    Maybe call TAFE and go and have a chat with whoever the HSC co-ordinator is at the tafe you want to go to? It might be reassuring for you to know what your options are etc. Don't give up hope about your HSC results for this year though.. you can leave talking to tafe for later if you want to, because you go to an information session and enrol at the beginning of next year, so there's no rush.

I failed year 11 advanced english at high school, and got a high band 5 at tafe. So it worked for me!

    good luck! don't stress about it too much though.. enjoy your time off!

    Hey, I'll be doing the HSC at TAFE next year (year 11 drop-out :P) and from all the research i've found like, no tafes do software design. This is my best and favourite subject, so it's very bad for me if i don't do it. Also, any info about Ultimo? How it's like eg.

    Yeah, AFAIK you can't do SDD through OTEN either.

    Hi there Ken..
    have a look at this link..
    http://www.tafensw.edu.au/cgi-rdb/rd...PRINTVER_IND=N
    and this one
    http://www.tafensw.edu.au/flexible/hsc.htm

    don't know about Ultimo tafe personally, sorry! But you should definately aim to do software somewhere if its your favourite subject.. makes all the difference! There's tables on the tafe website that list which subjects are available at which campuses, but I don't think it's up yet. Keep an eye out for that!

    good luck with everything

    Does it take the whole year to do the HSC at tafe even if you only do one subject? The exams are still at the same time as people doing it at high school right? Im not happy with my results and Im considering redoing my HSC at tafe next year.

    Hey Karlz.. takes the whole year at TAFE, whether you're doing 1 subject or 6. Bah! Includes prelim as well.. they squish it all into a year. Exams are exactly the same.. you do your trials a bit later though, because there's not really enough time to have gone through all of the HSC work by the time all the schools are doing their trials.
    Might still get into UNI or whatever it is you want to do.. keep your fingers crossed, but TAFE is always an option, and it's pretty alright.
    Good luck with everything and merry christmas!

    Thanks mate. Merry Christmas to you too.

    I knew it would finish at the same time, just wasnt sure if it would start right at the start of the year. Ive already done the HSC but want to redo physics, would I have to redo the prelim too?

    hey iambinkin i just wanna know why you decide to spread your hsc over 2 years.
    i think you said you dropped out in yr 12 halfway, why not finish it in a yr, were you under some kind of extreme circumstances(e.g family, illness). thanks

    ahh.. starts a bit later, I think.
    It depends on the subject.. for instance, for english we did about 2 weeks of preliminary work, and for biology the preliminary topics were mixed in with the HSC ones throughout the year. It's a pain in the ass (I'd already done prelim too), but they get it out of the way pretty quickly, and if you've already done it, no need to worry about doing brilliantly in the prelim assessments or anything.
    Might vary from TAFE to TAFE, I'm not sure..

    I was reading the document on the OTED site and it said distance education enrollments must be completed by Febuary 28th if you wish to sit any of those subjects in the 2005 HSC.

    There was alot of stress in my personal life at the time.. I wanted to get it all over and done with in one year, but I spoke to the HSC co-ordinator at my TAFE quite a bit before I started, explained my circumstances etc, and he didn't think that I should try and do it all in one year. It was probably pretty likely that I'd have bombed out like I did in high school if I took on too much at that point in time. Everybody's different, but most of the people who did it in one year at my tafe either dropped out, or had a pretty miserable time. I think you're also alot less likely to get a higher UAI if you cram the two years into one.

    Each to there own.. maybe start off trying to do it in one year, and if it is too stressful, then drop a couple of subjects and do it over two?

    Ahhh... I got a 67 UAI in 2003, when I really didn't try in the exams... hardly studied... Everyone's like "You'll regret it" and whatnot, and I just shrugged my shoulders... Bah. I really should have thought it through...

    Anyway, I'm doing four subjects at North Sydney TAFE next year, hoping to get into B Arts at USYD... or maybe not, I'm still unsure. I'm doing EE1, EE2, Advanced English, and Religious Studies (2).

    Anyway, good luck to anyone doing it again. Hopefully we can do better this time...

    I wouldn't reccommend doing your whole HSC in one year though, 69^boi. It'd be pretty full on... I wouldn't be able to handle it. If you did well in some subjects just keep those marks and do a few more to improve your UAI like I'm doing. You might want to do say 6 units (3 subjects) in one year, see what UAI you get, then if it's not good enough, do another 2 or 3 subjects the next year. What were your results?
