    New Syllabus Resources

    Hi, student taking the HSC in 2021 here. Was wondering if anyone knows where to find some good resources (notes, textbooks etc) that have the new syllabus, since most of the existing stuff isn’t fully accurate of what we need to know anymore. Thanks!

    Tell me about Australian High Schools!

    Initially I also expected the syllabus to be pretty different but after checking the NESA website there were surprisingly more similarities than I thought. Yes some topics are taught earlier here especially in maths, but for bio and chem they were pretty close. As for English and creative arts...

    Tell me about Australian High Schools!

    I’ve lived in Singapore my whole life so I go to the local schools! My parents are Australian and I was born in Sydney, hence the citizenship.

    Tell me about Australian High Schools!

    Ah I was able to apply because I am an australian citizen! I just used the term international because I've technically never lived in sydney. I believe you can only apply if you're a citizen or PR, but I may be wrong.

    I see. Guess the new textbooks will be pretty important for reference then, since a lot of existing resources would be outdated or incomplete singapore education is pretty stressful with a whole lot of exams but we're used to it haha. By start and end, I'm not sure if you're referring to school...

    Tell me about Australian High Schools!

    So aim for the highest marks possible, but ultimately focus on rank rather than marks. I think I got it thank u ! :) math has never really been my strongest subject so I think I’ll wait and see how year 11 goes! if I do well in ext 1 I might consider ext 2, but it would just be for the ATAR...
