    gap year

    I took a gap year. benefical for other reasons too. I worked throughout the year, gained enough of a savings to fund myself to move away for uni I also changed what I wanted to do at uni during my gap year, which I think is the most beneficial part of my gap year. I originally deferred a...

    Is making notes useless?

    Writing your own notes is a form of revising the content and a form of study. I did much better in subjects where I made my own notes vs ones where I got ones from here. Also it’s a skill I transferred into uni, as well as my work.

    How do people with jobs in Years 11 and 12 have time?

    My input would be to really balance your time, and assess how much you NEED to work, vs how much time you have for study, and other activities. You need to also remember to keep some time to yourself, to enjoy the things you want to enjoy. I didn't study much in year 11 + 12, but I did work 2...

    2024 HSC Chat

    Had no clue what to do when I finished HS, just wanted to go to uni for the excuse to move out of home. I thought maybe teaching, but decided to look at health related careers instead. Wanted to do radiation technology and be a rad tech in a hospital, but I only got early entry for a uni in the...

    In a big dilemma… need opinions

    After reading the thread about not going to school, I’d say defs move back. 2.5hrs travel time is way too long, especially if it’s to somewhere you hate. Your marks will suffer. I went to a small school with 6 kids in my year, yet the cohort after me (3 kids) 2 of them managed to get into med...

    how do know what i want to do in university?

    It’s hard. Tbh like when I was looking at uni all the courses that interested me were ones where there’s a set job for the course example: pharmacy, education, nursing, midwifery etc. which I guess made it easier to pick the course, if you wanna be a nurse you do a bachelors of nursing, if you...
