    Re: HELP with Subject Selection (URGENT)

    It's really up to you what subjects you choose as you will still have to perform well in any of the subjects for a good atar but I wouldn't be so tied down by choosing subjects just based on scaling. It should be a factor you consider but not the most important one

    Also, do you think Chemistry and Physics is something hard to learn/understand for someone who doesn't like but doesn't hate science? Would it be any harder to learn than humanities

    In my year had a friend who did sor (48), eco (95), legal(95), math 2 unit(94), eng adv(94), software(96), he got 99.2,previous year someone in my school did eng(90), Eco(94), business(95), ext eng(45), math 2 unit(90), sor(50), legal studies(94) got 98.95

    It is possible with effort. The thing is science you have to be able to do calculations and understand the principles behind why something is happening which is a skill, but at the same time being able to write essays like u have to in humanities is also a skill that really depends on the person

    PROOF: There's a girl called Natalie Buckett from Penrith who got 99.95 with all humanities in 2013.

    Re: HELP with Subject Selection (URGENT)

    Is it true I'd have to do REALLY well in my humanities (apparently 90 won't cut it) if I want to get a 97+ atar. Thinking adv eng, ext math, physics, Eco, business, legal. And at Sydney Boys (if I make it in): ext eng (compulsory for y11), ext math, Eco, business, physics or maybe legal

    Just do whatever subjects you feel comfortable with. As said you can get 99+ ATAR with any subject combination and yes you'd have to do well in humanities. Chuck in some marks in an ATAR calculator and then you'll know what you really need to aim for
