    Transfer to UNSW?

    Since both degrees are IT related, I am going to assume your dream course at UNSW is also something to do with IT. Course relevance and first year uni marks are more important than your ATAR mark and lastly which uni. It really doesn't matter if it is WSU or Macquarie especially considering the...

    Done with HSC :)

    Glad to hear it. I experienced this first hand myself. I did 12 units and I under-performed by a lot on the day of the hsc exam for one subject. You just never know. Every single exam is super important. Continue studying now so you can have a guilt-free 3 months holiday.

    ATAR Estimate Post-Trials - 90+?

    I did! In fact, my school estimated ~88 and >90 if I am lucky. I ended up with high 90s! I was over the moon. :headbang:

    Blue pen or black pen or pineapple pen

    HSC markers will always prefer black but if you don't have your preferred pen in black then forego it and just stick with what you are used to.

    Is it worth it?

    Yes of course. Two of my closest friends from high school did Law at USyd and both of them got >99 and did not do maths.

    Is it worth it?

    Dropping to Standard. If you failed the Prelim Advanced course, I don't think it is very likely for you to achieve 80s in Year 12. You can still get the necessary ATAR for Law with Standard. In fact, many of my law classmates didn't even do Maths...

    How should I utilise my reading time

    I always liked to read through the entire paper first and give my brain some time to absorb them. This way I can also identify any really difficult questions that requires extensive planning. Often, I find I have a few minutes of reading time left all this. I will begin the MCs. I did this...

    Handwriting speed

    I used to be able to do ~1200 words in 40. To get a B6 in Advanced, you generally need to aim >1000 in 40.

    uts law

    You will not get into UNSW with low 90s. I am currently at UTS with 97.50. I applied for UNSW and did not get in. However, I am aware of someone with ~98 and got in.

    SLEEP OR STUDY

    Unpopular opinion but I believe it depends on the individual. I have always been able to function properly on 4-5 hours on sleep. I also prefer to study at night so my 'golden hours' are 9pm–2am. During this time frame, I can study at maximum efficiency without any breaks and it worked really...

    Best university for law

    For me it would be between UTS and Macquarie. UTS law is known for its practical approach and I think it is great. This is my fifth and final year there. However, I have also heard great things about Macquarie. Two of my closest friends did law and graduated from Macquarie last year and they...

    COVID-19 and school closures

    University will indeed proceed as normal for now. With confirmed cases at USyd and UNSW, I am sure there are cases in UTS, Macquarie etc. They are just currently undetected. I can't believe they are advising schools and universities to continue, it is like the government is just waiting for this...
