    Is a good selective school worth traveling one and a half hours to everyday?

    I'm contemplating moving to a better selective school further away.

    Will this long commute negatively impact my final year of school?

    Depends on the level and rank of the school. No point travelling that much for a bad ranked school. But honestly you will have a lot of free time in year 12, so it wont affect you that much.

    Also the school can help you a lot in lifting your marks, so if you think you can benefit and you know you will take advantage of the school then why not

    Good luck.

    Thanks for the reply!

    My current school is ranked 20 whilst the school I'm possibly going to is ranked 13.

    I'm honestly quite surprised that there's a lot of free time in yr12. Everyone's been telling me otherwise.

    Honestly I don't think it's worth it. You could spend that extra time doing sports or simply socialising. Your current school is already ranked really well. Mine wasn't even in the top 100 and I got a really good ATAR (and education) out of it

    Rank 20? Haha I'd preferably stay at your current school and like the other person has said, live a little and socialise. Obviously year 12 requires a lot of studying, time and dedication, but theres always that little space where you should relax.

    So honestly, if your school is rank 20 already just stay and save yourself the hassle (20 is really good!) But, I am here to just give light advice, so everything you do is up to you

    Best of luck!

    Thanks for the advice guys!

    The school I was talking about here didn't offer my subjects. I was devo but then a top 5 school close to me offered me a place so everything's all good now
