    Unhappy should i drop mathematics extension 1

    so for my yearlies ext 1 maths i got 25.5/56 which isn't even a pass and for last test i got 40% also. in my defence i barely studied so i know i can do waaay better.

    so do u think i should drop it?? i know i can do way better. also if i drop society that means i'll have to drop society too and then take up history extension or something. i need urgent help.

    Well you shouldn't drop maths ext if you know you can do way better, only drop it if you're actually struggling with the subject.

    Keep MX1. But why "barely studied"? You know the HSC is not an exam to be complacent about - not even in the Prelim Yr; you will regret it if you don't wake up quickly.

    Keep it if you are willing to study for the exams. It's supposed to be useful in many uni courses.
