    Can i still get a 90 ATAR if my internals are 70-75 ?

    Hi,

    The subjects I am currently doing are Chemistry, IPT, Business, Advanced English and Advanced Maths.

    Chemistry- 6/30
    English- 28/44
    IPT - 1/20
    Business- 23/80
    Maths- pretty low

    I am really worried about not being able to get into my course at UNSW. It requires an atar of 88+ for guaranteed entry. My Trials aren't going as well as expected either

    School rank is about 250-260.

    - Any tips for studying?

    - Any Hope that I might still be able to achieve that ATAR?

    Your ranks don't seem that bad, especially IPT and chem.

    Are you eligible for any bonus points programs like, do you live in a low se area? I think UNSW gives bonus points for band 5s and 6s in
    chem and, maybe business and english. https://iaro.online.unsw.edu.au/hsc/hsc.bonus_point

    Just try your best for the remaining Trial exams you have. You also have your external exams to go, so you still have time. Also, maybe your school just sets really hard maths exams, so don't fret too much.



    HSC 2017: General Maths | English Standard | Biology | Business Studies | Modern History | SOR 1
    Goal: 75+ for B Accounting @ WSU

    These are some tips for studying the subjects we have in common
    For English:
    • Write practice essays
    • Write paragraphs corresponding to certain areas of the rubric or module
    • Write essay plans
    • Get feedback from the above and improve on anything you can
    • Remember important quotes and analysis (or even whole essays if you want)

    For Business:
    • Write notes before the class covers it
    • Remember the syllabus dot points - they help structure your long responses
    • Check out past papers and look at the types of questions asked (you can go to the library or other places for these resources)
    • DON'T cram info in last minute, prepare ahead at least 2-3 days for exams (depends on you)

    For Maths:
    • Memorise formulas and know how to apply them
    • Practice, practice, practice

    TLDR; do practice papers, mark them and learn/improve from mistakes
