    Hey mines also due this Friday do you have a general statement with your report or something? Mine goes along the lines of 'Should Schleiden and Schwann be credited for all the work on Cell Theory?' Good Luck with your report and everyone else's reports because I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one suffering here haha

    Physics from previous years. However it all depends on the performance of the collective cohort in the subject each year.

    Re: 2018ers Preliminary Chit Chat Thread

    Q: To those doing economics, is eco difficult? And is there a lot of content to memorise?

    ― I'm tempted to pick physics since no one does eco (like approx 16 last year) everyone does business but the physics department is crap, the only thing my school's good at is maths also the teachers recommend that we don't do all three sciences.

    As of now, I wouldn't say that Economics is easy, Prelim course has 6 topics and I've done the first three, and boi there is a lot of memorisation to be done with all sorts of diagrams, definitions and explanations.. I'll probably drop Economics and pick up History Extension because I'm a History student but honestly go ahead and try Economics, I thought it would be like Commerce but it wasn't but I don't regret choosing it, despite my average marks and the fact that there is a lot of content involved that can easily be remembered though. Just remember it's up to you and if you don't think Economics is the right subject for you then choose Physics (I can understand why teachers recommend not choosing all 3 sciences because it limits your future career paths and all that, but if you REALLY enjoy science then by all means choose it
    I'm spending my holidays writing notes for topic 3 imao but it's ok it's not as horrible as I'm making it out to be lol

    Thanks for the info, much appreciated. I chose eco for sub selection since I like commerce and thought it'd be like the more difficult version and it's a good sub to pick to learn about the economy and stuff. I don't really like physics that much, hope eco isn't too difficult and not many people do it so ranking wise it shoud be relatively easy since there's less competition.

    Side note: During science the teacher was like eco and bio is verrrryyy content heavy, I had a mini-heart attack since that was the day we gave in our sub selection paper lol and I chose those very two subjects probs end up changing my subjects later on though.

    It's not to difficult- I think the biggest difficulty is staying away from rote learning and actually making sure you understand concepts. At my school people got smashed in the first test because they tried to rote learn and didn't actually understand the content...

    Re: 2018ers Preliminary Chit Chat Thread

    Economics isn't really content heavy, just make sure you understand the concepts in year 11 because they go more in depth in year 12. Everyone is different, but personally, Economics is really interesting. You'll be able to apply it in real life and the HSC topics that you do in yr 11&12 are covered in university. Eco doesn't scale that bad, just a bit behind Phys and Chem but some years Eco scales better, as Rathin said, depends on the cohort. It's not a rote learning subject, although essays can be memorised, but that will just guarantee you just a high band 5 if you are lucky in the externals.
