It's that time of the year where we have to choose our subjects for next year. I'm currently in year 11 studying Physics, Chemistry, Methods, Modern History and English, but what I'm afraid about is not getting the recommendation from my teacher.
All of my other subjects are fine right now (before exams) except for Chemistry. Chemistry is my weakest subject this year, and it may affect my standing for next year's ATAR score. Thing is, I want to study engineering in university and one of the prerequisite is Chemistry.
I'm afraid that Chemistry wouldn't make it to the top four ATAR subjects next year. What should I do? I don't want to drop Chemistry, because I believe it's the most fundamental subject generally in the science area. Also, I doubt I can make it to the engineering course with just Physics and Methods (unless there is some special requirement that I've missed).
