But then theres chemistry and physics to devote time into as well, physics is very theory-y in highschool biology is easy but you still need to memorise content and examples
    i did the mistake of not choosing 3U maths (because if i did i either had to take 3u english as well or slr, im a lazy bum) and i kinda regret it, seeing the content itself its not very hard. thinking about doing it in year 12 but didnt do the prelims so im not sure

    You can easily catch up for 3U content. 3U Prelim content isn't even that hard. Ask your teachers for advice, and make sure to say you're eager to.

    I think you can do 3U maths out of school but you need the permission of your school principal to do so

    I'm pree sure it's a BOSTES requirement that you must complete prelim 3U before going to HSC 3U

    It would but you would need to inform your school and BOSTES if you were to do it all in one year (prelim and HSC)

    Distance ed, IDK if they do a HSC in one year thing at all, you will need to contact them on that

    I think at least half of it, since people can change courses in yr 11.

    @tazmin, ask BOSTES, there are always ways out of it.

    Generally, as said on the site, you can't do a HSC course without satisfactorily finishing the Prelim course, so I'm not sure you can dodge prelim content.

    You can also try TAFE. TAFE condenses a lot of content in one term, and it may be helpful for you. However I do not know if it's a viable alternative to the prelim course.

    The fight for ranks begins the moment you step into your classroom tomorrow.
    Stay focused throughout the year and you will reap your rewards.
