There really isn’t a “best” ATAR combination as it’s very much a personal thing.

Things you need to consider (I’m taking it you’re a Victorian doing VCE, based on your previous posts):
- you need to take an English subject (so one of the above: English, EAL, English Language or Literature).
- you need to take at least 3 other subjects and pass a total of 16 units for your VCE
- take subjects you require as prerequisites for future uni courses e.g. if you’re deadset on taking undergrad med in Victoria, you’ll need to take Chem. Heads up: Many STEM and commerce courses will require Methods or maths of some description.
- take subjects you enjoy (rather than for scaling). Trust me - VCE is a marathon and doing subjects you hate will feel like fingernails on a chalkboard (apart from English, which is compulsory). 
- some combinations of subjects e.g. all 3 maths, may not be able to count in your top 4 subjects, so beware of those.
- occasionally there are subjects which have other prerequisites e.g Algorithmics and Specialist have methods as a prereq.
- study design will be your best friend in terms of figuring out what subjects look interesting to you. Google “VCE Study design” or “VCAA study design” - note: they may not cover 2022 or onwards yet but the content generally is very similar between study designs. (Link is here.)

Edit: small addition of study design link from VCAA.

Hey everyone.

Is it okay to post your assignments in different state forums?
For example, If I wanted my Physics assignment checked, could I put it VCE and HSC, despite me doing the QCE study structure?


Thanks,

Hi there,

So i want to apply for a med and was wondering if universities look at your subjects that much. I'm doing Methods, English, Physics, Chemistry and Legal Studies and was considering doing VET Chinese as i would gain Level 3 Certificate and say 'i can speak Chinese'. DO VET subjects look bad on application (realistically) and i just do Further Mathematics to keep it safe, or do they not look at subjects too much, even if it is VET

Welcome to ATAR Notes!

Is it the VCE VET Applied Language course you're talking about?

When applying to courses in Australia, the universities only look at your scores in the prerequisite subjects for courses (e.g. if you've achieved a 25 in any English), so you can pretty much take whatever subject combinations you like.

According to VCAA:
Quote from: VCAA
A VCE VET study score may be counted as one of the student’s best four studies (the ‘primary four’) or counted as a fifth or sixth study increment if it is not one of the student’s three highest scores other than for an English study.


I'd encourage you to go with the subject you think you'll enjoy the most :)

Hey guys! I recently got ATARNotes and came across this thread which had a list of files and resources with an attachment sign in the top right but idk how to download any of them. There's so many useful guides that could help me but unfortunately I'm not too sure how to use this site.

Welcome to ATAR Notes! :) Which thread are you looking at specifically?

It was Math Methods Resources, it is supposed to have links to posts where people say they have "attached a file" but I can't really click anywhere to download it.

Hi everyone, when should we be starting exam revision and what in particular should I be doing.  Any tips would be great, as I dont really have a checklist to go by.
Thanks

A couple of questions:

What does the notify button do? I’ve clicked this for a couple of pages but it doesn’t seem to do anything.

What do all the little symbols next to topics mean?

Whenever I try to use the search bar, it says ‘database error: please try again’ and doesn’t show any search results. Not sure if I’m doing something wrong or if this is an problem with the forum.

Hello!!!

Good questions!

1. Notify is meant to send you an email when there's a reply to a topic of that thread. Unfortunately, something broke on the forum and those emails aren't happening.

2. The symbol next to the topic? I'm personally not sure of those aside from appearance (they seem to be called message icons anyways) - I guess you could use them kind of like urgent/important or questions, or just for fun. (unless you meant the quick moderation buttons that moderators have - if you see these please tell me - that shouldn't happen) :)

3. No, search is also broken - you're definitely not doing anything wrong! :) (this likely has something to with the technical parts of the forum, just like 1)

Hope this helps!! :)

I meant the symbols to the left of each item in the list of unread posts, but I realised there’s a key on that page that I somehow missed.

Y'ALL HOW DO YOU EDIT POSTS?!?!

I would really like to make a continuous post over time, but I just want to edit it, not keep commenting under it, or inserting quotes, etc. How do I just edit the same original post I had?
you're literally doing your best and if no one is proud of you, be proud of yourself xx
