    Help with ATAR and dropping subjects

    Hi, I need some advice with my subjects and whether I should drop any so that I can focus on my other ones. Unfortunately my school hasn't given our ranks as public information of yet but I can tell for some.

    School rank: 82

    Subjects:
    2U Mathematics
    3U Mathematics (will possibly drop)
    Advanced English (41/107)
    Physics
    Software Design & Development (1/7)
    Engineering Studies (4/10)
    Business Studies (top 20s)

    I'm doing relatively well for all my subjects (13 units) with the exception of 3U maths. I can understand the topics and during topic tests I would perform to standard yet on major exams I would do badly. Furthermore the content in engineering is rather dense but I would like to utilise it to assist with engineering in uni.

    What ATAR would I be able to get with average-high results in these subjects? Also should I drop any?

    Thanks in advance

    Your question is pretty difficult to answer. Define average-high results? You should probably look at your preferred uni/course atar requirement and work towards that. Since you want to do engineering, I wouldn’t recommend dropping maths ext 1, but just working harder in it as it will help in uni.
