    E12 Application Guide

    Haha, I just put it in academic because it was a school organised activity and involves some academic activities (eg report writing, and both my skill and volunteering activities were 'academic' based). If you want to include it I don't think it was detriment you in any way : )

    10 or 12 units - Year 12 2022

    Do 12 if you're unsure about 2 subjects (eg if you aren't sure if you're going to do better in eco or physics then keep both). However, if you know you're significantly worse at a certain subject then just drop it and do 10.

    Year Group Not Studying

    If you're 2nd then you won't be significantly disadvantaged as long as the person who is first does well. I would prioritise forming a study group with the top 3 or 5 in those subjects to make sure you all smash externals.

    Where can I see exemplar work, or examples of good essays?

    If you search online other tutoring centres may have them or some samples (eg Delta, Matrix etc.). Or you can find people who did the same texts as you and buy their essay as a guide.

    The weak acids only partially dissociate so shouldn’t it be HCl

    Note quite, the hint is in the question where they ask for the acid to 'completely neutralise'. Yes HCl is a strong acid, but the concentration for all of them is 0.1 moles, meaning the number of hydrogen ions are also the same. It doesn't matter about the pH or strength of acid, because the...

    Maths at Usyd vs UNSW

    Honestly they're both equal in terms of teaching quality. However, the general rep for UNSW is a lot better (not sure why, this is just generally among students they will choose UNSW over USYD for those courses unless they get a scholarship for USYD). I would argue UNSW has better social life...
