Way too late to be complaining.
As soon as my friend started the HSC course he was talking to our school principal, counsellor and senior deputy. He had to get signed notes and certificates from the counsellor, a handwriting counsellor (apparently they exist) and the principal to be viable for...
Um. I didn't do physics but my experience is that you should pick the option that is most commonly chosen as it will have the most accessible information generally. Also it doesn't really matter which one is easier/harder because they get moderated come hsc marking anyhow.
