    Can you buy textbooks for tablets? i.e. Kindle or Ipad?

    Hey guys, just wondering if it were possible to buy your allocated textbooks online and read them on a tablet instead of buying or borrowing a physical copy? Just thought this would save a lot of pain lugging big books around (doing business course so will have a few books). Has anyone ever seen...

    How much work did you put in for HSC

    IMO: It's not how smart you are but how hard you work (but intelligence does help). My average mark in prelims was about 50% (easy subjects too), I was ranked very close to the bottom of all my subjects. I go to a rural school (rank 600 or something) , so this was not a good thing at all. I...

    Do bonus points correlate to ATAR points?

    This may sound like a silly question but I would really like confirmation.

    Missed Cut-off for Commerce by 0.35????

    Hmm, yeah, I'm not trying to get an interview so I can get straight in, I only missed out by a small amount so it's more to get just a tiny edge so that they may consider me over other people. I've just heard that if the recruiters/head of faculty see your application and if you have personally...
