Should I take Chemistry Tutoring or is it not needed?
« on: July 29, 2021, 10:07:07 am »
Hi there,

Just a quick question if you guys think taking Chemistry tutoring is necessary for the HSC or just staying on top of homework + getting ahead of the work is good enough? I already do tutoring for Math and Physics so I don't really want to be reliant on tutoring anymore/invest more time & money into it.
If you have any personal experience/inspiration advice, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Probably depends on your exact aims, but in my experience it's not really necessary to get a tutor unless you're really struggling and actually need the extra help.

In my experience with my VCE maths/science subjects (which is hopefully similar enough to HSC?) asking my teachers for help when needed and just working hard in general was enough to do pretty well and get a 98+ ATAR. Overall, I only had a few tutoring sessions for English and it will still my lowest individual score. On the other hand there were people at my school who were getting tutoring for every subjects who didn't even break the 90 ATAR mark - Definitely not saying that's the be-all-end-all as ATAR doesn't really matter after 1 year of uni or define you as a person, but just highlighting that getting tutoring for every subject for the sake of it doesn't really mean you're guaranteed to get an amazing ATAR.

Good luck with it all!
