    10 because 12 is extra study time

    EDIT: I recommend 12 if you think you might bomb a subject

    10. Free periods = extra study time

    Re: 10 units vs 12 units

    In another world I would've done 10 but I do 13 only because I don't have anything else to do (sport, tutor, work etc)

    I see a lot of people in my grade with 10 units who don't actually utilise the free/extra study periods lol I'd stick to 12/13 because at least in that extra subject I'm learning something as opposed to studying/bludging in the school library where there's legit no monitoring or surveillance (not saying all of them bludge but of a lot of them do, however the snapchats do make me feel jealous tho lol)

    Yeah I feel like as I do 12 my efficiency is higher- as I have to compete with people who put more time into subjects.

    Re: 10 units vs 12 units

    10 bc u will have a lot more time to put into each subject. The best is to do one accelerated subject
