    HELP for yr11 Subject selection!!

    Good point, and I definitely agree, it probably is as hard to get for the average person to get top 75% in MX2 as it is to come top 5% in business. But out of the ~70000 people who do the HSC only 8000 do MX1 so just by that I'm going to assume that OP is already better than 90% of the state at...

    HELP for yr11 Subject selection!!

    I disagree. You should do 4u if you're not disastrous at 3u. MX2 scales so so incredibly well, its as close to a failsafe subject you can get. To put it in perspective, if you bomb 4u and 75% of the state beat you, your scaled mark will be 83. That will be equivalent to a person who came in...

    Few Questions About EAS (Educational Access Schemes)

    1. The info is available on the form. It says you need to provide proof, a personal statement and a declaration from a school representative that vouches your HSC was affected (I think) 2. They will send you a letter telling you which universities have accepted your EAS application and nothing...

    Is it still embarassing to do B. commerce and business (adv leadership) / B. Law UWS?

    Re: Is it still embarassing to do B. commerce and business (adv leadership) / B. Law I wouldn't call it low grade it's just very new (23 yrs) and not established yet. With that being said it is perceived as a 'supertafe' and I'd rather go to a different uni just because perception is often...

    So lucky you got to choose. I'm doing speeches as well....which was great until they started to specify which speech to write about. I'm contemplating learning Hamlet just for the HSC because i cbf to write a prepared essay for each one.

    According to the raw marks data base 83/100 is equal to an aligned mark of 90 and the UAC scales this to 77.6
  19. C

    How well do all my subjects for next year scale?

    The aligning is not horrible but its not great. The Board of Studies economics department just likes to troll students. If you want a premiers award, this might be a bad thing. But other than that, it doesnt really affect your HSC. Scaling and ATAR are calculated independently of the BOS so the...

    Dr Pepper's "I had good ranks and screwed them with trials" Club

    They really only place requirements for extension subjects. 0.25 of a page in year 10 shouldnt stress you out. You probably did fine!
