    Can I just say "chemical going in eye' for every risk question

    In this kind of question maybe you will get away with it but there are specific kinds of questions where they specify 'other than personal protective equipment, identify one risk associated with the experiment and how it can be minimised'. If you write going into the eyes there you won't get...

    Scholarships - Supporting documents

    It is still the same thing to make up stuff on this type of application. Just like the other commenter said you don't know how thorough they are in terms of checking validity of things. I would assume they would look very closely at people who they consider on a short-list to get the scholarship...

    Scholarships - Supporting documents

    No idea. I don't know the process for how they select and review applications. There is a lot of money on the line in these types of scholarships and they have a responsibility to the donors of the scholarship to ensure it's assessed and awarded in a certain process. Either way it's not a good...

    condensation rxn of amine and carboxylic acid?

    Esterification is a type of condensation reaction between a carboxylic acid (COOH) and alcohol (OH). The ester linkage forms through eliminating water. That is the main reaction you learn in the syllabus as an example of a condensation reaction. However, there are a few other types where a...

    How waking up earlier, exercise, a good diet, AND study will give you the edge in the HSC

    I agree having a good diet and doing some form of exercise like soccer, running, walking etc. could be beneficial as it helps to keep the mind fresh and relaxed by reducing stress. The other part though on waking up at 5am you don't need to do this extreme kind of routine to perform well in the...

    importance of dux, 2nd, 3rd in university applications + scholarships

    I got there through a combination of a few factors - natural intelligence, hard work, studying ahead, doing lots of practice and always looking for ways to improve even if I got high marks in an assignment before. Firstly, a high level of natural intelligence as I had always performed quite...

    do i need chem for med

    If you had 2 students who both got into med with one who did chemistry and one who didn't do chemistry, there probably isn't any real advantage either has. The concepts studied in chemistry at a high school level have no link to medicine which would be more linked to biology. The only real thing...

    Solution equlibria stupid question

    Yeah I'm doing chemistry phd. I used to tutor but stopped at the end of last year to focus more on my degree so don't plan to get back into it anytime soon. However, there's plenty of people on this forum offering chemistry tutoring in the tutoring section so you might want to check that area of...

    Solution equlibria stupid question

    You can use either since it gives the final answer of whether it makes a precipitate or not. However, the last screenshot answer is more commonly how the question is answered so I would probably learn that way as it goes through the ionic product (Q) calculation which you could be asked to do...

    Is it worth it studying one term ahead?

    I studied ahead during my HSC. It can be very helpful but it all depends on does the student actually use it effectively. There isn't much point just doing content 1 term ahead if you don't in that time do the tutoring hw, make notes and actively engage with the content by doing some past paper...

    Yeah as the colour change is how you determine when the reaction is complete
  12. jazz519


    The first statement is correct. For the 2nd one this is not always the case. In a titration the unknown could be in the burette or in the conical flask. It's just more common that you place the unknown in the conical flask and known in the burette. However, sometimes a colour change using the...

    Which tutoring centres pay is tutors the most

    It's hard to say because most of the tutoring centres don't have a flat standard rate for all tutors. The amount you will get will be based on your marks, tutoring experience and any additional things that increase your worth such as you are currently studying an undergraduate degree in that...

    Thoughts on Engineering (honours) and a Masters in Biomedical Engineering at UNSW

    I would recommend asking on the UNSW reddit. There isn't many current uni students on BOS so its unlikely someone doing that degree will see it

    There's 2 steps in the MyUNSW website. You need to first enrol in the course and then click the select classes option after and you can see the times the classes are at and start selecting them. If you can't see the select classes then maybe it's not available at the moment for the commencing...

    When are the UNSW 2023 General Merit Undergraduate Scholarships for Commencing Students results coming out

    From my experience being successful for 4 different scholarships, there isn't really a set defined date for each scholarship to be offered out. It works on a process of the scholarships office assessing the applications and then sending out offers one by one. A certain time period is given for...

    importance of dux, 2nd, 3rd in university applications + scholarships

    This is not really a scholarship tbh in the normal sense of what one is. It's just a way for the uni to attract high level students its basically like a sign on bonus you would have at a company. From my own experience getting DUX at my school, AAA (academic achievement award) you get paid $4k...
