    What to do in the morning before an afternoon exam?

    This morning before my Japanese Continuers exam, I went down to the beach for an hour or so, and went out to lunch at a Japanese restaurant. I was really relaxed before I went into the exam, and despite the fact that I didn't study much at all I'm still confident of how I did. I think I'm going...

    stupid shit you've done in class

    In year 9 science, whenever we did a prac involving chemicals of any kind (which was obviously quite a lot), a few of my friends would put a little bit of each one into the container that used matches were supposed to go in. By about term 3, it ended up burning a hole through the container and...

    How much is it necessary to prepare for each speech, on the chance that they prescribe it? And would it be possible to disregard Deane's completely, as it was prescribed last year? I have a couple of main speeches I prefer to talk about (Sadat and Lessing), but I'm not sure to what extent I'll...

    Procrastinating English so hard...should english be replaced with philosphy?

    I think I'm completely screwed for the English HSC, judging by how trials went. Throughout the year, I was averaging 85-90%, ranked 48/135 before trials. Then trials come along and BAM! my mark was around 70%, trials rank 115/135 and drop to 69/135 for my final internal ranking. Note that this...

    How To Be Not Completely Screwed for my Chem Test Tomorrow??

    I just looked at sample answers for relevant questions from the 2013 HSC, and they are nowhere near as in depth as what my school currently expects us to do... Thanks for your help though, I'll just look over the key words on the Board of Studies website tonight and make sure I know as much as...

    How To Be Not Completely Screwed for my Chem Test Tomorrow??

    I know a lot of the content, but don't always know how to create my answers for the questions. My school seems to be extremely finnicky about it, and I don't want to lose as many marks as I did in the last test from slightly wrong answers. So do you have any tips on how to best create my answers?

    Hsc subjects :)

    He has 3 extension units in that 13 (Ext 1 and 2 Maths, Ext Jap), plus he did accelerated 2u maths, so I guess he's only really doing 11 at the moment

    Was what the teacher said fair?

    My maths teacher doesn't care at all if we have tutoring outside of school, and doesn't mind if we bring questions to her from our tutoring. She also highly encourages us to do past paper questions to prepare ourselves for the type of questions that we could be asked. So basically, to me it...

    How was your first day at school?

    The atmosphere was terrible, mainly because of loads of clouds and rain for the whole day. But it was good to catch up with my friends again, and dare I say it, get back into school mode!
