MARK UPDATE:

Got my year 11 grades and ranks but some arent 100% certain because they didn't provide us with an overall rank for some odd reason :)

Math ADV: B (ranked ~ 3rd)
Modern HIST: B (R ~ 3rd)
Eng ADV: A (R 1st)
Eng EXT: A (R 1st)
CAFS: A (R 1st)
SAC: A (R 1st)
SOR1: A (R ~1st OR 2nd)

ASSESSMENT UPDATE:
MATH/HIST/SAC/CAFS all due this coming week 2/4 done. Math is almost done (doing it right now) and hist is an in-class source analysis.

Eng is due in about 2 weeks and I'll start next week

Eng Ext 1/2 are due next term :)

So we had our official awards assembly and here are my final ranks for prelims (just hoping I can maintain these grades for my HSC!)...

Math ADV: Ranked 3rd
Modern HIST: Ranked 1st
Eng ADV: Ranked 1st
Eng EXT: Ranked 1st
CAFS: Ranked 1st
SAC: Ranked 1st
SOR1: Ranked 2nd

So, the beginning of the end has finally come and the long-awaited yet dreaded words are said 'school starts tomorrow'. I must admit I'm kinda scared of the fact this is my last year of schooling (yea there's UNI but I won't experience anything like school again).

Anywayssss, let's ignore all that scary stuff for a min and reflect on that atrociously long list which I gave myself when holidays began (don't be too disappointed by the results). I must say I did more relaxing than anticipated, but I feel it was necessary, after a 30+ working Christmas week and one day off within a 12-day span, I was exhausted. And also school is exhausting, but I feel rejuvenated and prepared to conquer the year :)


PIP
- I am very disappointed with how much I have done, I'm getting into contact with a marketer from a toy company so I've needed to wait for that, but I have just been putting it off
- Done a lot of research
- Scavenging for responses
- somewhat started the actual content

EXT 2 MAJOR
- Have done a lot of research
- idea is finalised including one text (trying very hard to find another)
- Viva voce is somewhat prepared for, have a little bit more i need to finalise by next Friday
- haven't written much but smashing some out this week

EXT 1
-  common module notes done
- haven't read LHOD (text), but i'll be doing that over the term
- haven't annotated all poems of Colridge have one and 1/2 of Rime of Ancient..... done, however, ROAM will be done by this week and the other two within the next two weeks
- assessment idea finalised and have started writing :)

ENG ADV[/b]
- Read 2ish of Mod C texts, almost done metamorphosis, completing Spotty Handed within the next two weeks
- common module notes done

Modern Hist
- Full Core notes done

CAFS
- IRP done
- notes done


Overall, didn't do as much as I hoped, but definitely content with it and feel I did enough to prepare me, after all, I didn't want to burn out before the school year even started :)

Until the next post,
Nomsie :)

It has been a while, I don't have much time as I'm memorising an English essay for an in-class response, but here is an update for my semester one marks! (Mainly for me to keep track of my progress)

TERM 4:

EE1: n/a
EE2: n/a
MHIST: 18/25 (3rd?)
MATHADV: 29/30 - = 1st
SAC: 19/20 - 1st
CAFS: 20/20 - 1st

TERM 1:

ENGA: 38/40 - 1st

MHIST: 40/40 - = 1st
MATHADV: 21/30 - somehow still 1st?
SAC: 40/40 - 1st

It has been a while, I don't have much time as I'm memorising an English essay for an in-class response

Some ways that used to help me memorise English essays were:

- Recording myself saying the essay, then listening to it every time I would want to listen to music :)
   o I did this in three seperate ways (1. the whole essay read through, 2. each theme/ idea/ topic, introduction and conclusion seperately 3. Each theme/ idea/ topic in half)

- Writing out flashcards, then little prompts (like the first 3 words of the paragraph/ each sentence) and review these daily (every few hours if possible)

- Using the Ebbinghaus Forgetting Curve (Spaced Repetition) to my advantage

- Having a condensed set of notes with the bare things that I could be able to adapt (ie. quotes, techniques, malleable effect/ meaning --> depends on the question, audience impact)

Goodluck with the Trials coming up soon :D

A proper update will be completed later (trying to finish two assessments tonight), but I got my English mark the other day for the exam and I got........ 24/25!!

Was the stress worth it?

yes.. :)

I am one happy yr 12 student, although this is not how I envisioned my last term of schooling, I cannot complain that..

1) Trials got pushed two weeks (let's just say my study is not as effective as it should be)
2) THE PIP GOT PUSHED TWO WEEKS!!!!!! it was meant to be due a day after my birthday, so I am definitely happy (excluding the fact that I'm celebrating in lockdown :'()

I shall update in a bit, for now I need to do my mod B notes on Eliot :P

Math Adv: 25/25 - =1st (mini test + hand in task)
Society & Culture: 39/40 - 1st
