Going to add to this at least once a week, maybe more who knows. Starting a little later than everyone else so let's just say this is week 3 term 2 and I'll provide a quick overview of what has happened so far, even if I can just look back at it at a later date.

2019 (year 9) - completed General Math 1/2
2020 (year 10) - completed Psychology, Methods, Legal Study 1/2
2021 (year 11) - Chemistry and Literature 1/2, Methods, Further + Legal 3/4
2022 (year 12) - Chemistry + Lit 3/4, potential pickup of another subject or uni extension

So far one thing I'm finding really hard to get a hold of is motivation, it is so easy to just step away from doing work and not open my school bag when I get home from school. Literature is particularly difficult as it is by correspondence (shout out to VSV) as there is no in real life teacher or class keeping me accountable for falling a little behind. I have until June 8th to submit all tasks, so there will be a lot of cramming in the time until then to get all work handed in.

In regards to SACs, I could be doing a lot better if I did notes and completed practice questions. My first further SAC I got 83%, which honestly I'm surprised with because I did very little work and haven't started my bound reference. Most of my errors were not in content but rather silly mistakes like not labelling axes and such which is also an issue I have in Methods. I got very complacent with Further since I am doing it just for a slight ATAR boost but I know I could do a lot better. First Legal SAC was a 76% and our teacher admitted she made it hard on purpose so that we would be prepared for the exam. No one got 80 or above on that one. My weak point is task words and being able to provide enough information for mark allocation, started doing a lot more practice questions for the next SAC.

Methods I believe I'm doing ok, at least in circular functions, and I hope our SAC has at least some of that on it. Hoping to smash out a lot more literature work tonight will keep you updated  :)

Well updating this a little earlier than I thought I would, managed to complete and upload three weeks of Literature work last night, very happy with this as it feels like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Still a lot to do but every bit helps!
Had a Chemistry topic test today, screwed up balancing equations, maths was correct but not in the chemistry sense if that makes sense. Does anyone know how to separate chemistry/further/methods maths in their brain because I keep crossing the wires  :-[

Only a few more weeks until all my SACs decide to gang up on me, I think I have methods, legal and further in the same week  :'( Next week have my last literature SAC for the semester, feeling okay about it just need to find time to watch 10 Things I Hate About You. Methods has turned into basically speedrunning the rest of the content we have before the SAC, we're behind by a lot, only just started chapter 9 but so far differentiation isn't hurting me too badly. Have a bunch of practice SAC questions to work through in legal, goodness gracious I hate civil law with a burning passion!

Haven't started my bound references for methods or further, waiting until later in the year to churn them out so that I'm not including things that I feel I have under control. Let's just pretend that's the reason instead of my massive procrastination habit.

I got a lot of SACs in one week as well, in fact we had 3 SACs in one week lol. Do your best, don't let procrastination stop you.
