Hi,

I have a question about doing 4U Maths for my HSC.

I will graduate in 2019, so I've already started by Year 12 year. I also accelerated Maths 2U and 3U, in which I received full marks for both subjects. I also state ranked in 2U Maths (in the top 3). I love maths and am currently doing 4U maths, but I don't see myself getting better than a mid-top-band for 4U maths. So many people have been telling me that it's crazy for me to do 4U maths, because it will make my 2U marks redundant. So what should I do? Will state ranking in 2U help increase my ATAR, in comparison than, say, getting a 95 in 4U maths? What should I do to get the highest ATAR - should I drop 4U maths to keep my 2U marks, or keep 4U maths and ditch my 2U marks? To be honest, my aim is to get the highest ATAR, not to gain skills and learn more (sorry!).

I am doing 14 units right now, including my 3 units of maths, which I have already completed.

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks
