    TSP for advanced Science worth it?

    hahaha nah I didn’t drop it for that reason (I actually did better in physics at the beginning). It was cause doing 2 sciences was too much in terms of having labs for both which in 2nd year onward can be around 3-4 hours per subject, so I tried one sem where I did 3 subjects and I had 11 hours...

    TSP for advanced Science worth it?

    It is true that these kinds of programs can be helpful in finding some early research experience. However, when you say you couldn’t do it without Dayell (or the same version of TSP at unsw) it’s not entirely true. A lot of the unis offer summer research scholarships that are paid that you can...

    TSP for advanced Science worth it?

    Tbh after first year I never really did anything with it. Largely because I live quite far from unsw so travelling 2 hours each way to go to the uni to do some extra TSP stuff wasn’t really worth it to me. Also, I was really busy with my uni course, trying to manage my own tutoring business and...

    Handwriting - Is mine legible/acceptable for exams?

    I tutor and so mark different kinds of handwriting which can be messy sometimes and I've got to say although it looks nice it is for sure hard to read. What makes it hard to read is not that it is tilted a bit but because your letters are so close together and so end up almost overlapping. That...

    Making Notes

    Studying doesn't have a one fits all approach in terms of what leads to good marks and what doesn't. This is because it depends on a large amount of factors like memory capacity of the student, their ability in the subject, studying amount, does the student study efficiently etc. If the method...

    2020 HSC+ ATAR results discussion Thread

    You will have to check it yourself to see if there any bonus points. It’s usually listed on the course program on the website when you look at a specific degree. It will say stuff like band 5 in subject and how many points more that gives you. Also, not all degrees have bonus points so just be...

    2020 HSC+ ATAR results discussion Thread

    A few of my students got Band 6 which was a great feeling :) However, 2 others got so close on 89, damn I feel their pain to get that close and get trolled Also, congratulations to everyone on this thread. It’s great to see how some of you who I have seen on this forum throughout the year...

    Thanks for the mention but as @dumNerd has said I don't do online lessons

    Hard questions

    Personally I did a bit of both. I just did more work all together and in that you come across harder questions as well. Helps with reducing silly mistakes as well if you consistently do all kinds of questions rather than just focusing on the hard ones and exam speed increases if you have done...

    Hard questions

    Just doing more and more papers for maths honestly. Maths there are so many past papers on websites like THSC online. If you are trying to get better at answering the harder questions then you should do papers from those top schools usually exams from schools like James Ruse, Sydney Grammar etc...

    Physics, Chemistry or Biology tutoring?

    To answer the question of the original poster. You shouldn't really be getting tutoring for every single subject because as you have mentioned it can be very expensive and in most cases not a value for money. This is because tutoring should just be something that improves your marks in things...

    Physics, Chemistry or Biology tutoring?

    Thanks for the mention. I think most of my spots are filled at the moment but if the original poster is interested please contact me as soon as possible as my classes will be starting this coming week / weekend, as if there is any vacancy after I check my planning I can try fit them in

    Starting Uni

    If the subject course outline says 80% lab attendance then you will need that. However, this doesn't mean that you can just like skip the lab and then only 80% of those labs go to your marks. It will probably mean that you get 0 for that lab unless you have applied for special consideration but...

    Do UNSW Engineering degrees require MX1 and physics before enrolling?

    Basically the first 2 math subjects you do at uni include relevant extension 2 maths content from the HSC and new content that builds off past maths knowledge you have in most cases. Engineering is a very maths heavy degree and so if you are not strong in those subjects you will probably...

    PhYsIcs

    It should be the same. If it is off it means you rounded early most likely. Maybe some teachers wouldn't take off marks for this but the correct way to do a calculation in sciences is to not round till the end and use the full number in your calculator for each step in the calculation

    Chem prelim + hsc

    It depends on what you mean by theory as you have to like apply it to scenarios like separating mixtures for Module 1. Rarely have the exam questions asked for just rewriting memorised things. If you are talking like written content vs calculations Then for HSC it is probably: module 5, module...

    Chem prelim + hsc

    You can’t really make a classification like that because all the modules have theory and calculations with them as well but just different types. No module is really just memorising a bunch of things as most of it is applying it still

    #welcome #general-chat

    Just start writing something. When you are first writing something for english it doesn't need to be perfect as no one can just come up with amazing paragraphs on the first go. After you have some paragraphs down then you can go back and improve them with better language and more quotes/analysis...
