also curious why is the A class only 1hr 30min whereas B and C is 2hrs? Is it because B and C class are at a slower pace thus needing more time to cover all the content?
Yea basically. He will basically just do alot more questions of the same type in the B and C class while in the A class he will only do like one or two examples and just leave the practice to the homework.

Okay so basically just finished my year 9 ngo and sons advanced class and my teacher nominated me to go into the specialist class. She said that there is no point in holding me back when she knows I’m capable of going ahead. She said that all the accelerated students are going into it and she wants me to go into it too(as she said I am capable of doing so). Problem is that the accelerated class students have already nearly finished the year 10 course and the advanced students are just starting the year 10 course. (I’ve basically covered every year 9 topic anyways.)Following this, she said I might be struggling/behind for a term or two. But I am going to do year 10 maths at focus college anyways( I do accelerated maths at school), so do you think this is a problem? Since I’m going to do year 10 math at focus I think it’ll make it up for the gap between advanced and accelerated students at school. Since the accelerated class students are already really far ahead it’ll unfortunately give them a huge advantage. Any opinions?

You should be fine if they are starting year 11 work as the first bit of year 11 maths is just revision of year 10 maths. Jimmy should also be starting to transition into yr 11 maths about now (polynomials is an optional yr 10 5.3 topic and is an ext 1 topic). As long as you are comfortable with algebra and have a strong base you will be fine, as it will make understanding concepts alot easier.

Just asked my teacher for ngo and sons and the problem is the specialist class is mainly designed for the current accelerated students. This means since they have already nearly completed year 10 the specialist course is Year 11 content. How am I supposed to do year 11 content when I have barely started to do year 10 content yet? I’ve only done the basic topics for year 10 at school(mainly repeats of topics in year 9 such as algebra, quadratics, congruency, surface area and volume, etc)

To be honest the only year 10 content you need for year 11 is all the algebra (quadratics surds etc) and trig. Congruency got taken out of the syllabus and anything else would be revised when learning the content, specifically functions. Year 11 is very different from year 10 maths but as long as you have your basics mastered you should be fine understanding the new content.
