This is incredible El! Congratulations, I'm sure you'll do just as well in year 12 next year (and no more maths for you!)  8)
Thank you so much CM! Very happy to not do more maths, but I will definitely not do as well in year 12 as YOU 🤩

AMAZING results El congratulations I'm so happy for you! I'm so jealous that you don't have any maths anymore but now I've got a math guru ahaha
Special congrats with methods, I heard that the exam was super tough so I'm SO proud of you that you got an amazing score.
Have a festive holiday  ;D
OH MY GOD CONGRATULATIONS EL!!! Such spicy numbers! I'm so proud and happy for you!!!!! I'm really looking forward to spending this year on this journey with you! It would be AMAZING if you wrote guides for Further and Methods because getting 40+ study scores in TWO MATH 3/4's in Year ELEVEN is nooooo easy feat!!! So happy for you and have an amazing break <3
Thank you SO MUCH POTATO 🥰🥰🥰 Endless love for uuuu. Also congratulations on your biology score and thanks for replying twice (so so dedicated 😆😆). Hopefully I will get around to doing guides for both subjects, we will see if time permits!
Hey El,
Congratulations on your awesome scores, you maths queen! Firstly, having the courage and confidence to take 2 maths subjects early is unbelievable, and to also achieve those scores in this tumultuous year is something I'm so proud of. You did amazingly this year, and here's to hoping next year is just as good (I know you'll do well)! Enjoy the rest of these holidays - they're the calm before the storm in year 12 haha.

Have a wonderful new year!
Thank you so much beautiful whys <3. Your constant support does not go unnoticed. FYI, I did enjoy the calm before this very storm I am in rn hahahah
Congrats on your incredible scores! You should be proud of what you've achieved. All the best for next year and beyond :)
Thanks biscuit! Good luck for your future studies 😆

those are both fantastic scores and should put you in a really good position for year 12  ;D
Thank you sine for everything you did to help me last year, I appreciate it!
Hey Eloise!
WOWOWOOW your scores are amazing!!!! I'm so happy it all worked out in the end! I have no doubt that you will do so well in year 12! Congratulations and good luck for next year! I'm rooting for you!!!!
Thank you so much Marylen! I wish you endless luck for next this year !!
Hey Eloise ;D

I've sort of been silently reading your journal for a while, so I'm happy to finally be commenting (I may or may not have done so before as I can't remember). As I read a couple of your most recent journal entries I found myself getting nervous for you, and was over the moon for you when I saw your results (pleaseee teach me your ways). Congrats on your incredible scores!! All the best for year 12. I hope you have an amazing rest of your holidays :)
Thank you so much Doogie! I'm glad you read my journal and I KNOW you will do even better than me this year 😆😆
Hey El!

I just wanted to say: a big congrats on your results!  ;D They are AMAZING! You've worked so hard this year and I'm really happy for you! It's great that you surpassed your expectations too - that's always very nice! All the best for Year 12 and I know you're going to smash it like you did last year!
Hey Evolio, thank you so much for your support and congrats! Good luck at monash this year 😊

Hello there everyone! Long time no see, a pretty recurring theme on my journal ahaha

There is a lot to get through today (wow I sound like a teacher when your class is so behind LMAO) so I hope you enjoy this rendition of my slightly chaotic journey through year 12 (yes, I did change my name, its pretty fitting to how Year 12 is treating me thus far)

3/4 Results
I was very happy with my 3/4 results, and I thought they reflected the hard work I put in throughout the year. But, me being curious me decided to get a statemark of marks cos why tf not and its free ahahhah.

My marks are as follows
Further GA1 - 77/80 -> 80/80 GA2 78/80 GA3 114/120 which equalled a SS of 45
Methods GA1 69/75 -> 73/75 GA2 70/80 GA3 131/160 which equalled a SS of 42

My further marks honestly didn't make sense to me, but that is that. 4 marks lost equals a 45? It's not that big of a deal but has pondered my mind for a bit (I was gunning for that raw 50 and if I had the 2019 or 2018 exam I would have cries).
Also, thank god for SAC scaling, thanks school with hard SACs and a strong cohort (although weaker this year, we will get to that in a bit).

I ended up duxing methods (I think ahaha). I was so happy when I looked at the honour roll then realised that 42 is quite a low dux? My school was in top 10 for a bit but dropped a lot this year so maybe that is why? Nevertheless, I was happy being the top of a cohort in a subject that caused me a decent amount of pain throughout the year :) I was second dux in further which was pretty nice too, a girl got a 50 ahahah

Ngl, I reckon the last holidays was my favourite to date. I had so much fun, went out a lot and really took advantage of the pre year12 times! I didn't get around to doing a huge amount of work but I had a break which was so important.

My absolute highlight was attending this leadership conference by yLead called ASLC. It was breathtaking, lifechanging and I had the greatest 3 days with my new family. If anyone has the opportunity to take part in this conference, PLEASE pounce on the opportunity, you will not regret it. The days were filled with workshops, games, secret squad missions and the nights were filled with music, dancing, and connecting on a different level with the other participants (possibly the most thought-provoking night of my life).

I also took part in NYSF! Being online, it was very different but it was still pretty insightful! My interest group was awesome (love y'all Nightingales) and even though I didn't make it to every session it gave me a deeper perspective into the world of STEM.

I also just saw heaps of friends and made lifelong memories <3

Gosh, school has hit me luck a truck this year. I feel like I am always running around, studying or in a frantic mess. Being School Captain is more work than I envisioned, and while it is super cool, like running stalls, organising activities and recording a podcast (DM me if you want to listen to it and I'll direct you to it :)), there is a lot of work both in and out side of school that goes into it. I am getting a bit better with balancing it but it is still tough and I find that I have been prioritising it a lot lately (oop).

Now onto a quick subject update (arguably the bit everyone is here for lmao)

English Language - quite interesting! I am really trying to enjoy the subject and I think it's working. I am a lot more engaged than I was in 1/2 and I am actually motivated to do the subject!!

Chemistry - Oh chemistry, what did I do for you to just turn on me! I loved this subject in year 11 and it is right now my least favourite subject. It is also SO HARD OMG. I do not understand fuel cells. Like at all. That's this weekends job oop 🙈

French - French is French, what else can I say. Decent subject, its not the most fun but it's a subject where you don't have to put in a huge amount of work to do like ok yk? I feel like a 30 seems pretty obtainable. It's not a subject you can cram so I need to establish a good solid routine (that is not in place right now oops)

PE - I LOVE PE. The subject is so interesting, I love my teacher and class. This is the subject I want a 50 in. Is that possible? Probably not, but I will sure as hell try.

As for ATARy stuff, I know Eng Lang and Methods will definitely be in my top 4. I hope PE will be as well. I know chem will be in my bottom 2. It depends on how much work I do for French to see how that will go. My further score scales to about 43.5 so I need a 34 in French to beat that.

There has been a lot of stuff going on in my life which explains how I am so all over the place. I turned 18 on the first day of iso (yay Dan Andrews for starting it on the 13th). I know the lockdown was necessary but it was sad to not be able to see many people. My family were going to surprise me and also a small group of friends that I didn't expect were going to surprise me which warmed my heart 🥰. I did get to see friends on a walk and they gave me a super nice card and gift so I really appreciate that (if they are somehow reading, hello my dear friends and thank you again, ily.) Hopefully, I can have my party next week, if we don't go back into lockdown it should happen !! 😆😆

Thank you if made it to the end of this entry, you are so loved 🥰🥰

OMG IT'S ELOISE AGAIN AHHHHHH!!!! super stoked to see you again!
HAPPY BELATED BDAYYYYY!!!! 🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳 And also, congrats on becoming school captain! Please hit me with the events your school is hosting so I can pass it onto the SRC crew at my school! Unfortunately, I didn't get shortlisted for school captaincy but I ended up becoming the digital tech captain. Oh well!

I'm going to say this once and for all but if you're not getting a 50 in phys ed (VCAA im watching you) I'm throwing a riot. You deserve that 50 and I have no doubt that you will get there! And omg nysf sounds so fun!

With regards to chem, dwdw! I'm finding it challenging as well! (I had a bit of a sook over chem the other day but I pretty much just told myself to keep on keeping on, which ended up with me writing the chemical equation in tears  :'( :'( :-[) Hopefully we can get through the arduous trek through the bizarre yet fascinating world of chem this year!

Can't wait to read more updates!

Hello everyone, I'm not dead dw! Wow, what a year it has been so far. Pretty hectic and crazy. I said in my last post that year 12 had hit me with a truck and little did Eloise know that it would continue to hit her with about 500 more trucks going 200km an hour. I don't even know where to start this update so I'm just going to do sub-headings and hopefully you guys can follow.

English Language
The subject I dread seeing on my timetable. This subject is arguably making year 12 even worse. While the content is slightly interesting, it is not taught well at my school. At all. We are the first cohort to do 3/4 and I am worried. There are 2 small classes with 12-14 students each. We all (especially the other class) struggle to get feedback on practice tasks and the teaching is not very direct. I feel as though we have skipped over important aspects while paying more attention to smaller aspects. Heck, I didn't even know what double-speak was until today. I feel that this is the subject that will 'ruin' my ATAR. It was a risk taking a new subject and I am lowkey regretting it. I would have hated english but maybe at least would get a better score.

For AOS1, I got 80% which i was pretty happy with considering I had a huge breakdown right before it. I know I am above average and that is all that matters. I want a 40 but anything above 35 will do.

You used to be so good to me chem what happened. My worst subject besides Englang. I didn't really enjoy the content for Unit 3 and felt a bit all over the place with the amount of self-learning we did for certain topics (i taught myself fuels, thermochem, faradays laws and equilibrium pretty much). My results haven't been awful, not incredible either. The averages have been high af this year which doesn't make me feel any better. I got 87% for AOS1 and 84% for AOS2. Definitely a bottom 2 subject and has made me question if I actually like science (more on this later).

French is french. My teacher is super organised, even if the classes are a bit boring they are structured and we can still have fun. I have done pretty well - my score for the unit is 42/50 (84%) and with sac and subject scaling I reckon french will actually reach my top 4. I wish I could have gone on exchange but #corona

My one love. This subject is interesting, is taught well by a lit teacher, has my bsf in it and is just overall great. I f'ed up the first SAC but I think my ranking is in the top 2 and I feel I could dux this subject! I am so glad I came into this class.

Look, I don't want to lie, I know my ATAR will be enough to get me into most courses. Even with 30 ss's in all my subjects along with my 3/4 scores I will get 95. I feel as though I'm gonna get in the 97s and I hope I get in the 98s. Who knows tho and the ATAR is only for uni entrance so who really cares.

Maybe the biggest change this year. I don't think I want to do science. I dont see myself doing it as a career, the passion isn't there. If I had to put in preferences right now, here is what they would probably look like.
Commerce @ Melbourne
Actuarial Studies/Commerce @ Monash
Commerce/Science @ Monash
Science/Physio @ Melbourne
Science @ Melbourne
Physio @ LaTrobe
Physio @ Monash
Science @ Monash

But I don't want any of these courses. I want to go to ANU. I had never even considered this until this year and I have fallen in love with the idea of going and studying in Canberra. Also, the flexible double degree structure is so good for me. Right now, I want to study Actuarial Studies and PPE and I applied for early entry with year 11 results and co-curricular which I will hopefully get!

Other stuff
Look, my mental health hasn't been too flash this year. Being school captain is so much work and the expectations are crazy and there are times where I feel I can't go on with it. I have had some problems with my school as well and it is not the best atm. My friendship group basically fell apart and I am stuck in the middle. Lots of shit has gone on in my personal life as well, not for this journal. I just want to basically start a new life in Canberra and be truly happy again. Not to say there isn't stuff to be grateful for, I have a couple of incredible friends and teachers and ofc my family. I could have my bday party, I get to be here in Australia and not have to face so many horrible injustices in the world.

Sorry for the long long awaited update. I thank every single one of you for your support, it doesn't go unnoticed.

I hope to update this again but no promises.

Signing out,

Getting hit by a truck is a pretty bang-on analogy for Year 12. Hope you're holding up alright and finding ways to make time for yourself even when you're really busy!

Commerce and physiotherapy seem like quite different career paths; what interests you about each? Good luck thinking more about which direction you might go. I've also had a bit of a mid-year panic about careers. I was so such I'd do an allied health course at LaTrobe (or ACU), but really enjoying lit and being desperate to move out has made me reconsider a bit. At least we've got a while to decide. When do you find out about your early offer?
