    english advanced task 1

    Thank you! I think I have an idea of what writing style to choose. Now that I have chosen discursive, what do you reckon I should do? I'm stuck because I don't have much time to prepare (6 days)... Should I go right into formulating and practicing writing my response? Or first take the time to...

    english advanced task 1

    Please Help (I need advice on what subject to drop)!!!!

    You don't need to wait longer to drop something , the longer you keep an extra 2 units; the less time you have for working on your other subjects. Keep physics and drop business now. You like physics better, you perform well in it and it scales significantly better. Additionally, you might need...

    pros and cons of choosing new subjects in year 12?

    At my school we can pick up different subjects in year 12. I'm not sure how many people actually do it, but from what I've heard, some people drop subjects they hate then pick something else. It's basically up to the student to catch up. So the only reason I might do business studies in year 12...

    pros and cons of choosing new subjects in year 12?

    You make a fair point. I wasn't initially planning on trying that much in year 11 but lol you changed my mind. Also, I didn't pick any subjects just for the sake of filling up my units. They all have some sort of purpose, whether it's because I'm interested in it, I'm good at it, it's useful, it...

    Should I get a job during Year 12?

    I don't think you should. You have a lot already, including school, study, other school commitments and sport. In the hsc, you should really only be focusing on two things. You have school and sport. Getting a job would hinder you and make you extremely tired. Most people just get a job during uni.

    Thank you sooo much for taking the time out of your day to read and respond, I truly appreciate it! Also, I'm in 5.2 for maths. I've never gotten a D tho (usually C's), but it's because I really slacked this year. Now I understand if I dedicate some time to maths, math standard 2 shouldn't be...
