2. Subjects for my atar

Pick the subjects you know you're good at and will keep for HSC. If you're unsure of which subjects you're good at it's better to pick high scaling ones (chem/eco/bio) rather than Ext Eng/Studies of religion. Sure you can get a high ATAR with any subject combination, but it is much easier with...
3. clockwise or anticlockwise

It's anticlockwise. The coil needs to create a magnetic field out of the page to oppose the decrease, so it's anticlockwise.

Hi I graduated in 2017 with an ATAR of 99.95 achieving Band 6 in all subjects. I am offering tutoring services for HSC Mathematics (2U, 3U and 4U) and Physics (I have studied the new course and have plenty of resources) I am extremely familiar with the HSC syllabus for these subjects, and...
5. Worth re-doing MX1 again?

I was in a similar situation a year ago, ultimately I decided to repeat 3U to try get 100 (against the advice of pretty much everyone I asked) and it worked out however...the extra 2 marks would’ve made no difference to my ATAR. I’d suggest you do whatever is comfortable for you - if you’re...

Q1 has 8 roots doesn't it? Also ahh are there 4 values for a in q16? I assumed a had to be positive :( Edit: I think 11b) may be wrong? since those values are for a^2 and b^2 not a and b
12. 2017 HSC Mathematics Extension 2 paper thoughts?

Multis and Q11-14 slightly harder than past years. Q15 and 16 were easier than recent years. I'm guessing aligning will be worse than previous years?

Best of luck everyone :)
14. 2018 & 2019 HSC Syllabus Change - What's new?

Personally wouldn't say conics is the 2nd hardest topic, maybe mechanics or even complex numbers (geometry questions). From what I heard from other math teachers, conics is being removed since the questions are too standard with little variations. There are only so many properties of conics they...

17. Hey Guys! Just have a few questions about the HSC

Not entirely true Just because Year 10 and 11 results don't count towards anything doesn't mean they have 'no relation.' They're a pretty good indicator of your study habits/organisation skills etc. that will matter in year 12. You don't need to do really well in Year 10/11 to do well in Year...
18. How do HSC markers check for plagiarism?

They can't unless, they read a similar essay (e.g if you copy your classmate's essay that he/she was planning to use). Highly doubt they even have time to do these kinds of checks, considering they need to get through 100,000+ essays
