    Sydney Uni High Achievers Breakfast

    Has anyone else gotten an invite to this or know much about it? I'm not sure why I've been invited, whether its due to my entry scholarship offer, or my ATAR (which was good, but not thatttt incredible that I would be invited on ATAR alone - 96.30).

    This sounds so stupid but I am really struggling with what to do at the moment. I pretty much wrote my notes for my content heavy subjects like bio and food tech just before trials, and did reasonably well because it was in my head from writing the notes. However I have barely touched...
