(I really want to be THAT kid that did decent (80ish) at the HSC by just doing one hour a day in the week leading up to the english papers, is that extremely unrealistic? Slap me if it is. Quick)
    You aren't stuffing up your future, just delaying it if you really want to get into a course. For example, people transfer courses all the time so if you study hard at university in a lower ATAR course you'll likely be able to transfer into it.

    Oh Software design was lit. Our teacher taught us C# from the basics, learnt quite a lot. It was a fun course you should've done it.

    IPT on the other hand is a pile of trash, literally I realized when we started learning things like netiquette(like wtf who even uses it), and conflict resolution imao. Oh and not to mention how outdated the syllabus is (Apple is emerging technology)

    hahahah not too great. I'm a bit behind on everything bc I spent the first week of the holidays doing other things. I've been finding second related texts for English and memorising legal examples slowly. Soon I'll need to memorise my quotes for English, do practice papers, and start with bio and Ext2 maths

    Study is alright! I have been following a planned timetable and I am leaving a bit of free time doing past papers. I am a bit behind in everything so I've been adding a few extra hours of study to catch up. Apart from that, everything is ok.

    I have a question for all the English Creative Writing professionals. Is it possible to portray more than one discovery in your creative writing?

    Thanks

    I'm definitely not a creative writing professional hahaha but it is definitely possible. I think most people end up writing about two discoveries, one being physical and the other being some sort of internal revelation, or I guess you could also write about one discovery which leads on to another

    Yes.

    Works on two levels- shows you have a better understanding of the concept and also inadvertently allows you to better adapt to the different stimuli

    Re: 2018ers Chit-Chat Thread

    Hey guys, if i have french on the 7th november and geography on the 8th november, is it a valid and good idea to leave them until I've finished english and visual arts, meaning I would start studying french and geo on the 22nd of october and until the 8th november? I would probably study really hard for them even more after 31st october which is after extension english, meaning it kinda equals out to the same amount of study time compared to english and visual arts???

    That sounds appropriate to me ~ Realistically, I'm only going to focus on Adv English until that is over, then get back on the grind for my 3U 4U Phys Chem. Like I have time to study for those after English, and English is quite tough so

    I finish on 6th November with Studies of Religion! After that I plan on sleeping in and having fun (going out with friends and family). Maybe I'll get a job too.
