    I 100% think that's a good thing to never be satisfied if it means more motivation and 'hunger' to do even better

    The reason i'm kinda happy is mostly to do with how my marks project into the Atar i want! Whilst i aim for 95 atar (for B Commerce), i am very confident in myself in at least getting 90 atar (for B Economics). And this is without factoring in EAS! If my aim was to do law or actuary or something id be definitely less satisfied.

    Good luck! Looks like you're reaching your goal step by step!

    You just want to do a straight Commerce? No double degrees?

    Re: HSC Progress Log 2017

    Not related to the OP post but do you guys feel that economics requires a lot of memorising but not rote learning as per say. I'm honestly very unsure about economics because I expect it to all link up quite easily and for the content to be easy for me to memorise but is it like chemistry or business where memorisation is vital for some parts i.e. roles of chemists, fermentation, influences...

    Thanks man Sorry for intruding progress log but yeh I just had a thought.

    Good luck btw You look like you're very much on track :0 WAYYY better than me ^^)
