    English is not too bad. Just write at least one practice essay for each module and get it checked. Depending on the assessment, either memorise the essay or memorise a lot of quotes and techniques and adapt them to multiple practice essay questions to do with your topic.

    Maths is good if you try to understand the work during class. Try and study ahead one topic, starting from the summer holidays. Practise a lot of past papers and past HSC questions pertaining to your topics.

    Physics is hard and annoying. Just sayin'. :/

    Re: Yr 11 Subject Selections

    I feel like the biggest gamble for me is eco since I usually dislike high content subjects which I've heard eco contains. In saying that I do find economics interesting.

    Do you think it's necessary for a maths/physics tutor? I know the physics course has removed the social science and history content by replacing it with more maths based work.

    Thx for the reply!

    It's not "necessary" but it could help you understand the content and get more practice done. Also physics is high content as well but a lot of it is just understanding.

    Yea the plan for me is to study ahead and give equal attention to every subject, but, ultimately drop my worst subject at the end of term 3 next year.
