Skipping bio 1/2

Hi, Iím skipping year ten and need opinions on my subjects. I want 6 subjects to contribute to my ATAR, but since Iím skipping year 10 I canít do a 1/2 in it. Iím not sure my school will let me do 6 year 12 subjects. So I was thinking, what if I do bio 3/4 in year 11? My dad thinks itís a bad idea. But even if I donít do the best (I doubt it though, I love this stuff) itíll be better to have something contributing to my 6th subject rather than nothing. I looked around the internet and quite a few people have said you donít really need 1/2 bio.

Yeah, you don't need to do bio 1/2. There are many people who go straight to bio 3/4 and do quite well in it. There will be some general bio concepts from 1/2 that may help a bit in 3/4 but the actual content is quite different.

You are probably correct in saying it is better to have that 6th subject rather than nothing. Even if you don't do as well as you hope to you still get that bonus 10% of that study score contributing towards your ATAR.
