Regarding Math Ext, I would probably say Ngo and Sons is the far superior choice. A lot of students from JR and Baulko seem to attend Ngo over Matrix since most of the content covered in Matrix isn't really challenging enough for selective school students and Ngo tends to slightly faster-paced, which imo is best for learning math. For chem, I haven't really heard anything good about either. Have you considered ACE, Peak HSC or Zhangs? These tend to be the most popular for chemistry.

Hi cham176,
thank you for the advice. As i do not go to a very high ranked school (my schools rank is around 150-170) , should i still consider Ngo and sons?

and as of chem i will definitely look into those.

Yes, you should probs still consider Ngo and sons for math as they cater to pretty much any student :D

A bit late but I hope it would be alright to provide my two cents; I attend NGO and Sons for Mathematics Extension 1 (as a selective student), and Matrix for Chemistry (also had a 'trial lesson' with Mathematics Extension 1 of sorts with them but never continued with them lol)

NGO is amazing for mathematics, and I have attended their Parramatta campus since Year 8. I have Mr David Mai, and he's practically awesome. While we do kind of learn fast paced, the teachers are always willing to answer your questions or clarify anything you don't understand. As well as that, Extension 1 students also have access to an online Resource Bank on the online portal -- where the senior teachers have made exam/past-paper questions based of off past papers from students (most of whom attend selective schools), and I will vouch for how helpful the bank is to consolidate my learning. Matrix Ext 1 in my opinion was alright, and as Cham said, not really that challenging.
(but if you're slow at copying theory like me be prepared to have your phone out to take pictures of the slides lmao <//3)

I've only started attending Matrix for Chemistry recently, but I would say they are pretty good (first term was online though haha, when I go back I'll probably have a better judgement). However, the reviews are mixed, I've heard, and it really depends on the teacher you get, but I can vouch for the resources (a good quality theory book + workbook/homework book). If you can, you could probably consider ACE for Chemistry? I know a lot of kids in my school go, including a close friend of mine, and I have seen snippets of their theory and it is way better than Matrix.

If you get Mr Andrew Lam from Ngo&Sons Chemistry, you're set. He's GOATed at teaching, answering your questions and is prepared.

Yeah I've heard stuff like that, heard he was pretty good. Mid-last year, though, I attended the Accelerated Chemistry program (starts halfway through Year 10 I think, at the Parramatta campus) and I had this teacher who just graduated from high school; that seemed not too enthusiastic about it, and just read off from the slides. So I guess it depends on which teacher you get.

Matrix definitely for Chem, try the Epping branch, the teachers are absolutely incredible
