    Best way to study for english?

    for me, improving in English from year 11 to 12 was, 1. Investing more time into it because it was by far my worse subject in year 11. 2. Actively seeking feedback from literally anyone, especially your teachers and qualified classmates. 3. Making sure that you are doing practice essays or...

    Screwed for Business

    So I do MX2, MX1, English, Chem, Phys and Business. Business is clearly my easiest subjects and over the year I've gone by doing fairly well without studying for it too much. This was mainly coz the assessments were either take home or they were tests that examined a specific part of the...

Im not...

    Should I change my subjects for next year?

    what subjects do you want to change? As Kyufriut said, if these are the subject you really like then i suggest you keep them because you are going to enjoy doing them. It helps a lot when you have to pretty much be studying these subjects everyday for the next two years.

    Year 11 Subject Selection

    I would also consider business studies, its a very easy subject and not that much of a load since 90% of its fairly logical. In terms of content its pretty much all memorisation and something you can definitely do over like 3 weeks. I guess the only negative is that it scales bad and is kinda...

    R in PV=nRT

    It appears that when solving questions involving this equation, the value of R depends on units of pressure and volume and sometimes temperature (which is almost always kelvin). How do we know which value of R to use in a given question and do we have to memories each of these values?
