Ok, if you are going to intec, this course will be lke a matriculation course in australia, you will have a lot of work(not homework), assignments. Basically, you will have like 1 and half year thr.
Year 11(the half year)
you will be devided into classes according to the course you will take.....engineering, biology and commerce/art. you will have 5 subjects:
english (esls):- assignments--a lot. eg. speaking, writing reviews, investigating and stuffs like that. Just make sure you survive that because basically you only have 1 counted exam.
physics--nothing much like form 5+little form 6
biology(for biology clss student only)--a lot harder than any form 5 and form 6 although you will just learn about a chapter
maths--better pay attention although it is not as tough as additional maths (form 5)
C++--a computer subject. hardest of all and don't ever dream you can get bookls from seniors in ausmat. only ADFP seniors have it because we sold it to them
for commerce/art class sorry, i m not in that category.......
year 12: a lot harder than year 11. almost a very big gap
same subjects only with an addition of speciallised maths and also a deletion of C++. As i m choosing physics, sorry for those who wants to take specialised maths. Details cannot be provided here. only it is a lot harder that form 6's maths. Oh, you can choose package( for biology students only):
Engineering class--esls, physics, spec maths, chem, maths
Biology class--esls, physics/spec maths, chem, maths, biology
moral classes will be compulsory for all with 3 hours of lessons divided into 2 days.
basically ausmat is easier than IB but it is a 50 assignment 50 examination based course so makes it more difficult than A-levels(not the cambridge type). You can always find seniors there, so don't worry.
