I made a post about this recently, but have decided to dedicate an entire thread to it. ;D

On the ATAR Notes - VCE Facebook page, we've started a "Battle of the VCE Subjects" initiative. It's just a bit of fun - basically, we've taken 32 VCE subjects, and want you to vote on them, round by round, until we've found our ultimate VCE subject. 8)

You can vote according to whatever criteria you like! In this thread, banter away, my friends, about what subjects you think should win. I'll update you all as voting progresses, too. :)

Here was the initial draw:




In the initial round of voting, which has just closed, we saw the following results:

✅ Biology (76.42%) def. Visual Communication Design (23.58%)
✅ Legal Studies (73.58%) def. Geography (26.42%)
✅ Drama (74.53%) def. Texts & Traditions (25.47%)
✅ Maths Methods (66.04%) def. Business Management (33.96%)

The next round of voting will be published TOMORROW night, feature these match-ups:

🤔 Physics vs. Further Maths
🤔 Studio Arts vs. Specialist Maths
🤔 Software Development vs. Global Politics
🤔 Health and Human Development vs. Music Performance

Predictions for the tournament? Any surprises so far?

Which subject are you gunning for, Aaron? I reckon Bio and Methods will both get up in round two, and their subsequent match-up will be a ripper.

I reckon Further's a pretty good shout tbh - lots of people study it.
