    What does illness/misadventure cover?

    The NESA website isn't that clear about what cases illness/misadventure can be used, so i was wondering whether anyone here knows specifics/has experience filing one. I've heard that in the case of illness, it has to be so severe that it would warrant hospitalisation. And that mental illness...

    School said they're giving me 0 if a miss a trials exams

    Most schools seem to give an estimate mark if a student misses a trial exam. However, my school said that if i miss one i'll get an automatic 0. They said that they're not allowed to give estimates and that other schools are breaking the rules. I'm worried that my school is incorrect, as i've...

    Can trials still be completed after the exam block?

    Hi, Do any of you know what will happen if i don't finish all my exams during the two week exam block? My school uses invigilators, so they definitely won't be able to monitor 'catch-up' exams after the block. I'm a bit sick, not sure if i should just cop it and do the exam or not on...

    Can i write my essay and then choose my question?

    So for my history extension major assignment, i keep diverting from my original question. Can i just write my essay and then decide on the question it suits? Or would this result in my essay being kinda all over the place where the points don't directly link to each other? Thanks!

    I don't understand why i'm doing so badly in general maths

    Hey guys, For the first exam i got 62% and the second, 70%. I'm currently ranked 52/60. These marks are definitely poor, especially for a subject which is supposed to be quite simple.
