    ^ I think you still have to do English Advanced if you're doing 4u english and you should try both first then drop a bit later if you cant handle it.

    If your the only one doing ext2 maths at your school it just means that your moderated mark, or the one the school is supposed gives you is equal to your exam mark.

    yes most likely.

    with a tutor you could probably do it

    that dumb slow learner would be able to get 50 - 70 percent with enough hard work and money spent on tutoring.

    But without a tutor, a slow person would have no chance at doing that well.

    Re: If you are in year 11, read this first.

    *emi*: probably, but I reckon you should stick with 13 for at least a week and see how you cope. If you are struggling with the workload, it might be in your interests to drop down to 11 or 12 units.

    Re: If you are in year 11, read this first.

    like riviet said, see how u cope with the workload emi. If u can cope i suggest u see how u go during the first set of assessment tasks. U can drop a subject any time of the year (as long as you have ten units).

    Re: If you are in year 11, read this first.

    think of the course u want to do and do the subjects that'll help get u in. Also, emi, if you do well in any subject, u get good marks... I would personall drop religion (unless u have to do it, then just use it as free periods)...

    If you are referring to what u'll drop after assessment task 1 then drop the subject ur doing worse in (position wise preferably)... if ur getting the marks u want then y drop?

    Re: If you are in year 11, read this first.

    hey guys, i'm also looking for an advise.
    currently i'm doing adv eng, bio, chem, ancient, modern, maths 2u and maths 3u. in year 10 i have also done my Russian hsc and got 82 - which is quite low as i really, really want to do dentistry and it asks for a best uai...
    my 3u maths teacher said that i should really consider doing 4u maths. i don't know my prelim marks yet, but i found both tests rather easy - i've finished about 30 minutes earlier and had time to recheck my work - i know it's not an indication of the quality, but i kept getting rather good marks througout the year, in term 2 i came first in 3u.

    english is my weakness - it is my second language. i'm ukrainian and came to australia 3 years ago. although my marks throught the year were rather good (mostly 13/15s), i had some sort of a panic attack at the actual prelims. i did not understant the poem, article - could not find techniques - so i guess i failed.
    i want to find an enlgish tutor and try my best at english, but i think my hsc mark will probably not something to be pround of....BUT i really wanna be a dentist, so i want to do as best as i can in other subjects and i don't want to take a risk of getting a bad mark in one of them that qould futher affect my uai. so i want to do at least 12 units.

    but i also love maths, but in case if i find 4u maths too hard and want to drop, as i said, i want to have at least 12 units (it would 13 as i definitely want to keep up with 3u maths)...would you recommend me doing 14 units?

    thanks in advance

    Have a go at 4U. At least for term 4. If you're doing well in 3U then it should be no prob. You don't have to be a genius to do 4U like everyone thinks. 50% in 4U HSC will generally get you 80+.

    Re: If you are in year 11, read this first.

    Depends how well you do in 4 unit. If you think you're doing ok after a term or two, might as well drop your weakest subject to make it 12 units. If you don't think you're doing well, you're probably better off focusing on 11 or 12 units. I think 14 is too much.

    Good Luck :P

    If everyone is capable of getting 50%, then it won't distinguish you from your peers; which is what you need to do to get a good UAI; no?

    Having said that, to tazz-me-razz, if you're finding 3u maths easy then definately give 4u ago. If you find it hard then you can drop it later on just as long as you have 10units remaining.

    Re: If you are in year 11, read this first.

    I know I'm far from doing my trials cause I've just started the work for Yr 12 but I was wondering...

    What raw mark for a past 4 Unit paper would you be looking for to make it worth doing 4 Unit instead of maybe getting a really good mark such as 95 scaled marks in 2 Unit?

    Would it be hard getting 95 in 2 Unit? So far, 2 Unit seems a bit easy and if I put in the time & effort, it seems like a more possible thing to achieve.

    I was thinking that too. For my prelim, I got 94 in 2 Unit and 40(/50..haha) for Ext 1. I think I'm only around average out of my cohorts who are planning to continue 4U next year. Would it be more worthwhile, UAI-wise, to drop 4u and focus on getting a high 2u mark? Or stick around and get an average 4u mark?

    it would be wiser to get a high 2u mark than average 4u mark, average 4u mark doesnt get anywhere.

    Re: If you are in year 11, read this first.

    I've heard about 1000 times (from 2 sources only) that if you get 80% for 4u maths it gives you an automatic 100% for 2unit... Is that right or plain bull....?

    People think I should be doing 4u since I'm in top 5 for 3u at school... but I'd rather have my 2u marks counted for UAI than some useless 4u mark that I'd get.

    No, if you do the extension 2 HSC exam, then nothing from the 2 unit course would count towards your HSC and UAI. Nothing would count from the 2 unit course, and your extension 1 and 2 units of maths will count for 2 unit each.
