    Re: 2017ers Chit-Chat Thread

    To anyone reading this and beyond,
    I am in a very precarious situation and I desperately need help. The story is as follows:

    I just recently had my mid-yearly exams. Most of them were a disaster. In Physics I got (49/85), Maths Ext 2 (43/70), Maths Ext 1 (34.5/50), English Adv (35/55) and Economics (57/80). Chemistry was good (76/80).

    The overall ranks for these subjects at the moment aren't great either: 5th for Phys (and a fair way behind 1st..) 7th in Ecos, 4th in Maths Ext 1, 3rd in Maths Ext 2, and ~15th in English Advanced. 1st in Chem (something to smile about, I think...)

    So basically, I have to drop Physics, as Physics just didn't work at all for me and my teacher and several advisors told me that 'it can't be rescued... you won't even get a Band 5'. If I was to drop Physics, I would be on 11 units (as I also do Ext 1 English). And I am definitely gonna drop physics...

    There is also the possibility that one unit of Ext Eng 1 counts instead of one from Adv (in the end, for the HSC). Then that would mean that all my other remaining units are definitely counting.

    My questions are these: What units/subjects should I focus more on, and how? Is there a certain aspect I missing? Is my ATAR still salvageable?! Do I give up now.. go into trades...?


    In advance, I am happy to give more information if needed.

    Thanks everyone

    PSS: I am sorry if I interrupted anyone's thread line....

    Doesn't seem bad, your school exams could be hard, you'll smash the externals! We don't know what your school rank is, so we assume so.

    11 units isn't bad, it makes an option for an extra backup too. I didn't see that you had your 3U Eng rank up there, but yes it can count and it does scale comparatively well, but is it worth it, when you can focus on other subjects too?

    Good luck!

    I think you shouldn't be getting n awards or 0 in any subjects to be honest. How about some effort? LOL

    How many subjects do you do? I'd assume you'd still be eligible for an ATAR.

    Just a note, I wasn't trying to be mean. It just seemed right to tell you to avoid getting an N award and to definitely hit any number above 0 for a subject. So I wouldn't say its the most useless advice otherwise I would be encouraging you to be an incompetent candidate in the HSC, which I greatly assume you aren't and don't want to be. Maybe I take the HSC much more seriously than you, but my advice still stands - how about some effort to avoid ANY N awards and 0s? I would hate to have it affect your chance at a better ATAR. Good luck on your studies.

    Had my 3u Trials Yesterday, one of the hardest papers ever. I had done most of the recent trial papers from the top school for 3u and was averaging ~80% under exam conditions. However my trial exam was so much harder and at this point I dont even think I'll get over 60%. Feelz bad man :/

    that sounds brutal >__>"
    was it a time thing or just impossible qs?
    It should be ok though because scaling + most people probably struggled too ( think last year people at my school were averaging below 70 for the ext 2 paper)

    trial sounds scary ; w ;

    Usually, if they use turnitin, they'll make you submit it directly. At least that's what has happened in my experience.
