guys how do yous pick which subject to drop in yr 12? it's confusing cuz i go to a public school with very few band 6's ever :blink2: anybody in the same boat?? i also am on 14 units
typically people drop their lowest or most boring subject (cuz its harder to have motivation to study for them). Im personally gonna drop biology because I don't need it for later studies and I find it really boring even though I got a good mark on it

Does anyone think it's a good idea to pick my English-related text as a modern adaptation of the original? For context, my school studied Othello and the related text that I wanted to choose was New Boy by Tracy Chevalier, which poses the tragedy of Othello within a contemporary setting. Will I be marked down for using a modern adaptation? Thank you.

Anyone know if i can switch to a distance ed at this point in time?I know its an extreme long shot, but Modern History is so boring for me and I really regret not doing Chemistry. I talked to my school about switching from my Earth class to Chem (as it was on this line) but they didnt let me because it would be two hard and detrimental to my other subjects apparently. If I switch to a distance ed course from modern, I could argue that if it goes bad I will just drop it at the end of the year. Plus, I have quite alot of insurance as I am debating doing science extension at the end of the year so could drop 4 units. Idkk though. From some general research dont think this switch to a distance ed course is even possible, but worth a try I guess.
My reason is is that I barley am botherd to do work in modern- is it worth me giving chem a go if i would feel i would enjoy it- i just drop if it goes bad right

Yes, you can go down the hole of appropriation and recontextualisation. My school decided to do Geoffrey Saxes' Othello

definitely think about whether or not it is necessary to keep both extensions, i was also on 14 but i recently dropped eng ext. i do plan on taking 4u math so i will think about dropping a subject. i also want to keep 12 units for hsc because i know i might mess up a subject so also keep that in mind
