    Accel. A tip (from an unreliable source but take it anyway) - make sure you understand the use of calculus when learning about it and that you don't just treat it as numbers on a page. It's much better to have conceptual knowledge when it comes to Integration in year 12.

    What are other schools doing as their Preliminary AOS for Term 1 (English)? Assuming this is actually in fact a thing and not something my school made up.

    Wow, wish we did that. There are probably so many resources (past papers etc.) out there for that and it appears to be a better simulation for the HSC.

    I find it funny how teachers are trying to teach us how to answer HSC essay questions in test conditions - everyone's gonna take the whole HSC year to rote learn and adapt them anyway.

    My school has black outs when everyone turns the air cons on which don't even work half the time and if there are fans in the room it's likely one doesn't work. It's a private school. -_-
