You can do it.

No matter what your results are right now, you can do it.

Whether you're in Year 10, Year 11 or Year 12, you can do it.

If you're currently reading this from school, from work or from home, you can do it.

If next year you want to study, to work or to travel, you can do it.




This forum has story upon story of students doing well - and much better than they ever thought possible. From brenden's transformation in English ("I'm shit at writing") to Glasses' amazing successes on ATAR day (see here), there are scores upon scores of students who have benefitted from this community.

Hopefully, you will too.

Look at it this way. Somebody has to get those 90+, 95+, 99+ ATARs. Why not you?

"I'm not smart enough," you cry.

Yes. You. Are.

And HSC success isn't always about "book smarts", anyway. A big, big part of doing well can't be measured in the number of hours you study or your average scores. Things like dedication, curiosity and persistence are the things that will get you through - and also the traits most useful in life after HSC (which, I promise, exists).

Trust us - we've been there.

But you know what the best thing is? The absolutely best thing is that ATAR Notes has your back. Everybody here is here to support you. This community - this amazing place - is full of past, present and future HSC students. There are people who have been in your shoes before and who can help guide you. There are your peers, who you can rely on for empathy and understanding (particularly in the HSC Journey Journal thread). And there are future students, too - the ones who, at the end of the day, will depend on you to pass down the knowledge you're presently accruing.

That's why I love ATAR Notes. So from here on, use the forums. Ask questions. Be curious. Help others.

You can do it.

Holy crap!  :o :o
This great Joseph! I really love how everything comes together in one place to be easily accessible!
Props to you for taking the time to catalogue everything like this!
Really happy to see some of my guides included in this!  ;D
"Live life like a pineapple. Stand tall, wear a crown and be sweet on the inside"

"May you grow up to be righteous; may you grow up to be true. May you always know the truth and see the lights surrounding you. May you always be courageous, stand upright and be strong"

"Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire"

Obviously tricky to remember/cover everything, so let us know if something's missing. :)
