    What's a good % to aim for in practice papers and trials?

    At what point would you say you've prepared well enough, is it consistent 70/ 80/ 90 in practice papers? What even are some reasonable trial marks? I feel like getting an 80 would be really good since it covers all topics for all subjects but idk if that's too low of a mark. Maybe people who...

    How important is it to make notes?

    So far in Y12 I've done pretty well on all my tests and assignments without falling for the notes meme. I never look at the syllabus or care about dot points, I just do important work in class and at home and prep for tests when they come up with the best plan I can come up with. I have friends...

    Does this mean that Year 11 marks will count as internals for our HSC?

    "give Principals and system authorities the power to determine the number, type and weighting of tasks for Year 11 school based assessment, in line with the decision communicated last week for HSC students" That's from the NESA COVID19 committee, I don't understand if this means nothing for...

    I have unlimited free time these summer holidays, is is realistic to aim to complete all the HSC 2u unit math I need for the year? The work is not very difficult and I think this would be very beneficial as it would make my in school lessons revision and instead or in addition to homework I...

    Going over word limit in English?

    Is there a set amount that I will lose or is it up to the teachers? Even if I go over and lose marks, if I have the perfect essay which is a true 100% and I go over and lose 5-10% or whatever it is that is still a really good mark. The only reason I'm not cutting words out is because my essay is...

    How to study for bio?

    I have a skills test coming up and don't really know how to study for bio in particular because it's not like maths where there are questions and chapters to learn (my school doesn't have textbooks for bio so all our resources are printed worksheets) and it's not like modern where you can plan...

    Should I drop to Standard English?

    So my Advanced English marks are really bad for Y11, all assessments were between 50% and 60% and I find the work really boring which is maybe related to the teacher but it doesn't matter since the teacher isn't going to change. It seems like an easy decision to drop to standard but I have done...
