    And with the maths book probably doesn't really matter as much, but I still prefer grid books.
    That's true, I ended up getting binders for each subject and an extra binder to bring to school with what I need in it.

    Oh okay, I bought a lined book anyway haha. Thanks!

    I've seen people say that too so I'll try my best not to, but I feel like I did slack quite a bit in Year 10 so I definitely wanna put a lot more effort into Year 11.

    apart from the binders, i honestly don't know what i'm doing in terms of organisation haha
    i have a vague idea but tbh just gonna yolo and yeah learn from my many mistakes ^_^

    Re: 2019s Prelim HSC Chit Chat Thread

    Can't wait to get fked over by the new english syllabus, it's so strange so far the common module is crap; reading to write, writing to read or whatever the fuck it is. NESA, bostes or whatever it is now might even make us write letters, interviews, monologues, news reports or some bs like that for our hsc creative it's so stupid (they're trying to make us stop having prepared responses especially for essays) why would we go through our years of schooling learning to mainly write essays and narratives?

    we analysed the rubric and did some hippy surveys like how often do you read and write tf, as well as writing reflections on random texts and listened to some eng edinburgh podcast about writing and clarity, my school can't teach eng at all only like 7 b6 each year

    I've really been enjoying economics, business and physics. Teacher for chem is kind of a drag and not enthusiastic at all

    I have no hope for myself in the next two years tbh, my school is also pretty low ranking so I doubt I'll end up getting the ATAR I need to get into medicine lol. I'm doing Chemistry, biology, physics, English (adv. + ext. 1), maths (2u) and PDHPE btw.
    Wish you all best of luck !!!

    Re: 2019s Prelim HSC Chit Chat Thread

    having regrets in doing bus instead of physics, cause alot of phys concepts appear in chem but bus gets more b6s at my schol so idk

    also got an english assessment task weighting 30% fml, it's so weird
    Assessment Task 1 = (96.67x30)/100 = 29/30
    Assessment Task 2 = (80x25)/100 = 20/25
    Assessment Task 3 = (90x20)/100 = 18/20
    Assessment Task 4 = (92x25)/100 = 23/25
    Now - 29+20+18+23 = 90
    Final raw assessment mark = 90
