    HSC Atar Estimate (bad internal)

    Depends on your definition of success. You're going to get into university & will have a wide selection of degrees to choose from. The talent100 atar estimater is pretty good.

    Looking for a volunteering opportunity? We're accepting new applications!

    For those looking for scholarships dependent on community engagement and leadership, such as the New Colombo Plan Scholarship, or equity scholarships which typically also have this in their criteria, this seems like a pretty good opportunity NGL.

    Latin Continuers tutors recommendation

    I can refer you on to my sister. She completed her degree in 2019 Majoring in Latin + Ancient Greek. Won Nicholson Medal in 2019 (Latin Translation prize) and is beginning masters this year in Sanskrit. She has a lot of HSC tutoring experience and has tutored both Latin and English to HSC students.

    is going tutoring discriminating and unfair?

    It's unfair but unsolvable, mostly unfair because your ATAR is meant to reflect your aptitude to succeed at university and tutoring is going to help you raise that rank but not to a great extent your aptitude IMO. There's definitely value to it on an individual level. Considering you guys live...

    Is there point in completing B Engineering Science?

    I'm not sure about engineering graduates obtaining business roles straight out of university and don't know how common this is. If you did want to try, you could try getting real life consulting experience (for example through UTS consulting club but I'm fairly there are equivalents in other...

    Is there point in completing B Engineering Science?

    (3rd year mechanical engineering), tbh i still think it's worth doing the 4th year. Bottom line, it'll take you far less time to get a paid engineering job, if you want to be an engineer, than completing masters. You can also take unpaid internships (assuming you can't secure a paid one) in your...

    Studying for HSC abroad, Would like a good online tutoring service for ENG ADV

    So, with English, there are dozens of texts you can do for each module. You could study english essay structures but I doubt that would translate to a high english mark without knowing the text you would do for the HSC. You could also start on your creative writing skills & short answer...

    Studying for HSC abroad, Would like a good online tutoring service for ENG ADV

    What highschool are you enrolled in? Shouldn't they give you materials? Sadly, you can't just learn HSC content by yourself and then get the HSC which you seem to be?? You can get some free english help by the person in my description, I highly recommend that. I could give you some recommended...

    Looking for an affordable SOR1 tutor for marking

    I'd ask the HSC discussion group 2021 if you don't find anyone here. PPl advertise SOR tutoring there all the time. Off-topic but https://web.archive.org/web/20170225150908/http://portal.waverley.nsw.edu.au/library/sor/index.html Excellent website for SOR

    Fresh grad or experienced tutor?

    Fresh grad but only if they've done the exact texts you've done unless the experienced tutor is highly knowledgeable which is far from guaranteed. Obviously, high school English text analysis isn't the pinnacle of English writing and my sister can rip Band 6 essays to shreds. Genuinely helps...

    Good laptops for Uni??

    Don't know if this has been mentioned, but excel on mac has less functionality than excel on windows & it's super annoying to use excel in particular on VMware or likewise which your uni will likely provide. The M1 macs are looking pretty sweet right now, especially because of the thermal...

    Doing Bachelor of Arts at USYD with 59 ATAR?

    How would you get into USYD with 59 ATAR? Preferably Bachelor of Arts Majoring in Philosophy. For my friend. He's very bright & he'd get all the disadvantaged ATAR point adjustments. (Cohort has a 50% drop out rate in year 10. 3/10 people in the yr12 cohort received ATARs) It would be ok if...
