    Are you allowed to use non-copyrighted pictures or photographs in your major work?

    i'm relatively sure you are, but i'm guessing you'd have to reference them. check with your teacher and see what they say. i drew my own diagrams in mine, so i believe if the picture is your own you'll be fine.

    for those who got 99+ what did your study pattern look like

    tbh my studying wasn't very structured at all. i did almost all essay subjects and for those the main thing was scaffold and practice essays, rinse and repeat. make sure you have a solid idea of what you would write for each possible question or topic. i didn't really have a set study schedule...

    HSC Maths Exam Gets an F for Failing Our Students

    I think you're right in saying that 'something only has meaning when you give it meaning'. But that line of argument, which you use to disparage arts, can equally be used to disparage STEM subjects, capitalistic systems, etc. Without societies having created these sorts of systems that...

    if it helps i wrote three paras for crime and the options and did really well in trials - i think it's less about quantity and more about quality/how well you answer the question :)

    apparently is math becoming compulsory in 2026

    that's fair, i'm definitely not a fan of the US system at all. i do however like that in the UK, their version of UAC requires you to submit a personal statement explaining why you'd like to study the subject that you're applying for. it's a lot less sappy + makes more sense than US college...

    apparently is math becoming compulsory in 2026

    kinda wish the hsc worked like a-levels in the uk where you pick three or four subjects, none are compulsory, and unis make you offers based on how many of a certain grade you get (like 3 a's). each subject is still scaled for difficulty ofc but the process isn't nearly as all-encompassing as...
