1. ### hahs or girra?

The cohort as a whole has nothing to do with your relative's results at the end of the day. They will rank as well as they can perform, and will receive the corresponding/respective marks in the HSC (assuming the people in front of them don't flunk/they don't flunk themselves). If you need a...
2. ### Is Ngo and Sons even that good?

I think he has a class at every campus. I don't know if it has changed. (I recently saw some social media post that he was going to teach at another new campus they opened, but yeah, not too sure about the campuses which he teaches at). I went to Parra for MX2 (much closer to me), and Fairfield...
3. ### Is Ngo and Sons even that good?

Personally, I would say NGO was pretty good (especially for the price). I got B6 in both MX2 (low B6) and MX1 (Mid B6). I just went through the theory and examples/practice questions in class and did the homework (skipped ~5 altogether, occurring when I was in my exam blocks). I skipped a lot of...
4. ### inv functions question from 2004 3U HSC paper

Wait lmao, it's so ez. I am so stupid. If you equate the f(x) and y =x, you rearrange you get the equation, and that gives the answer. LMAO, too rusty at maths. (So same thing as I said before, but you don't need to solve for the root of the equation, it's unneccessary) (Didn't actually try it...
5. ### inv functions question from 2004 3U HSC paper

Don't equations and their inverse intercept at y=x. (I don't even know if that's relevant, just something to consider). Then you could just find the root of the equation. Then equate, huzzah.
6. ### Is Ngo and Sons even that good?

What are the math courses you are doing for HSC and what is your target goal for them (HSC mark/range or external mark/range)?
7. ### Question.

On a side note, why did you study so many degrees? Are you trying to collect them all? (Pokemon!) Edit: Actually curious, not intended to be offensive.
8. ### Question.

I mean I've heard (and kinda makes sense anyways) that schools might be bunching people at the top together so that they all get decent internal marks, done so by reducing the difference between them assuming that they do decently well as a whole. This way they all get as close as possible to...
9. ### Anyone studying at WSU

I messed up. Smh. (Sorry for the misinformation) Luckily jimmysmith560 saved me from embarrassment.
10. ### Anyone studying at WSU

From what I've heard, and some bias from a person who always thought that Go8 is the best choice: I've heard that there is a fair share of 'dropkicks' there, and as one would expect the atmosphere is not as academically inclined as Go8 universities (e.g. USYD, UNSW) where there is an extremely...

Wow! You are so cool for missing basically all of your senior years. Truly a golden era I must say :) Edit: Referring to how your cohort isn't lame, cause understanding the value of ATAR is lame
12. ### unsw or usyd for software engineering

To be honest, the people on here probably don't really care about early offers. Just from what I've seen so far (or what I feel) the demographic of BoS consists of people who are pretty high achievers (let's just say 90+) and so the early offers are typically meaningless cause only most will...

I think we are just more knowledgeable and understanding of how ATAR doesn't mean anything really and have already entered the stage of "Oh ok, nice. I'm gonna go uni next year, and now let me carry on doing what I was doing".
15. ### UAC Application

I mean (no hard feelings) UAC has no obligation to allow you to participate in Dec R2 or Jan R1, so don't get your expectations too high. You can't do anything to change what happened, just hope for the best and see if they'll make an exception.
16. ### How does scholarships work? Does preference order matter?

Thank you for the detailed response Jimmy. Absolute legend as always.
17. ### How does scholarships work? Does preference order matter?

Bonus question: If anybody knows what is/would be the requirement to get the USYD scholarship, please tell me. Cause "academic merit" just doesn't help at all.
18. ### How does scholarships work? Does preference order matter?

I've been offered a conditional scholarship offer from USYD (Sir William Tyree Scholarship), which I don't know when it will release. The other problem is that scholarships are supposedly released on the 23rd, but offers for Dec R2 are released on the 22nd, so if I don't put USYD as my top...
19. ### I suck at math extension 1

I don't think you should see maths as something you just do because it's a prereq or just something to allow you to do Engineering. Engineering is going to go into much more difficult maths (understatement), (MX2 is going to be covered at the start (in a somewhat quick matter) (just to show how...
20. ### Biology or physics?

Scaling is certainly a factor to consider when choosing subjects, no matter what people say, it still does play a role in the ATAR you get relative to the effort you put in. The subjects that you like aren't always filled with what you like/want to do (e.g. Like art ==> go into VA ==> Theory is...
