thankyou!i also salute you!
i agree with you!! didnt do quite as well as you haha but i did things i liked even though none of my subjects scale that well and got an atar which im over the moon withthankyou!
i honestly believe in the philosophy of do what you LIKE and what your good at
if i had taken others advice and done ecos/business/maths/science subjects i would have done rather badly
my only "high scaling subjects" were hex and modern, and i hear they dont scale that well compared to those lucky science people
+ 1You don't need to do maths ext, ext 2 or physics to get 99.
I recently got an ATAR above 99 with just Mathematics. I actually took up Maths extension in year 11, however, I dropped it before the start of year 12 due to its heavy workload that did not go hand in hand with English Extension 2.
- Modern History
- Legal Studies
- English (adv. ext 1. & ext. 2)
I did mainly humanity subjects as you can see. Keep in mind I did not get band 6 for mathematics and hence, did not count towards my ATAR result. You don't have to be godly to get a 99 either, I got band 6 in all my other subjects but it's not like I got 98 hsc mark in them? Seriously, for all those out there sitting the HSC next year, don't be discouraged if you aren't doing physics, maths or maths extension, I got told that legal studies would pull me down and stop me from getting 98. In truth, no one really knows how the hell the board of studies does their shit it's not a transparent system. If your friends at school sound so certain and put you off don't listen to them. Be confident, positive, persevere and always aspire towards something.
another question...I've noticed a correlation between students who recieve 99+ and students who do Extension 1-2 Math / Physics
For those who did neither of the two, What subjects did you do?
You must be godly
