    General maths...

    You appear to have a sad, boring life, during which you spend your days analysing the Scaling Report and jumping down the throats of people who question it or who provide information inconsistent with this 'prestigious' or 'reputable ...Report of the Scaling on the HSC itself'. Scaling - best...

    continuers/ beginners

    Did you learn Italian while you were living there? It is assumed that this is the case - after all, immersion is proven as the most effective language-learning method. I did Continuers and Extension, but I am Italian. Mum and Dad were born in Sorrento. Cont. isn't too difficult anyway - yes...

    Is Year 12 Legal more interesting than Year 11?

    Wouldn't know, only ever did year 11 Legal Studies, and that was before the new 2011 HSC syllabus was introduced to make the course more accessible to students. I don't know. Ask Schoey93 if he's still around, he's doing year 12 Legal this year, he enjoys it, says its very relevant and that in...

    Is English Extension 1 Hard?

    1. Fuck no. For me, English (Extension) was easier than advanced. I found it to be the easiest HSC English course (I did 4 units of death in 2009). 2. You choose a module, then ehm an elective to study within the notion of that module and its associated ideas, I think. You will study 3...

    Which subject do you fear the most for the TRIALS?

    I did my HSC in 2009, but didn't do maths. So now I'm studying Mathematics (Advanced) and dreading the trial. I'm fine during exams and generally quite a calm person, but as a non-mathematically-inclined person doing the advanced/intermediate course, I feel very lost. Half-yearly rank was 5th/30ish

    Student- Teacher relationships

    doli incapax duty of care - teachers have a responsibility to ensure that their students are cared for and kept safe within the school environment. Once you're 18 and no longer a high school student, sure, go ahead and fool around with some young teacher fresh from university. Remember though...

My boss went to work at another store in June; she was a lovely gal, very kind and extremely...

    Looking for an Italian tutor before trials, speaking exam and the actual hsc?!?!

    Hi Maddie! Just thought I'd correct a few details, given that I've known you for a year - noticed a few inaccuracies in your tutoring ad here. You achieved 94/100 in Italian Continuers and 43/50 in Italian Extension. You completed the HSC last year in 2010, not in 2009 (i.e. currently hai 19...

    Nope, haven't died, lol. I'm still standing, um, sitting I mean. I'd like to go off to Italy...

    Nope, haven't died, lol. I'm still standing, um, sitting I mean. I'd like to go off to Italy this year, of course, but it may be difficult to find the cash. I blew my savings on a car and I don't have much money left now, but I did buy the car outright. Now I'm set to get hit with TPP insurance...
