Title: ATAR Notes articles on demand: request resources here!
Post by: Joseph41 on February 19, 2017, 05:10:44 pm
See our complete database of HSC, VCE and university articles here!

2019: Now taking article requests for QCE, VCE, HSC and university.

As you may or may not be aware, ATAR Notes regularly publishes articles online - entirely free. And that will again be the case this year, for both the VCE and the HSC. ;D

Awesome, right? Absolutely! But do you know what's even better?

This year, we're taking requests.

Want an article about time management? Post here.
Want an article about exam techniques in 2U Maths or Maths Methods? Post here.
Want an article about dealing with SAC results? Post here.

Essentially, it's up to you!

All you need to do is to post in this thread with your ideas. Because at the end of the day, we want to be the greatest help to the greatest number - and what better way to do that than to take requests? :D We can't guarantee that we'll cater for every single request, but if there are consistent themes - well, that tells us pretty nicely that we should be writing an article on that subject. :) So over to you!

Hi Joseph,

I think articles on stuff like setting up a study timetable or study pattern would be useful because I have problems while studying like procrastination and articles like that may help me get into the habit of constantly studying and not procrastinating too much which bad especially if you're in yr 12

Hey em.bg,

Welcome to ATAR Notes! ;D

Honestly, I feel your frustration re: lack of resources for smaller subjects with a fiery, fiery passion haha. How big is your Ancient History cohort at school? I don't know of many schools that offer it!

Really great suggestions (both Ancient History and Bio, which would be helpful to a lot of people). Thank you so much! :D

How to get a 40+ in English
Title: Re: Class of 2017/18: ATAR Notes articles on demand!
Post by: Raihnn on February 23, 2017, 07:54:17 pm
I'm interested in how to take effective notes and advice tailored for specific subjects. E.g] I'm particularly interested in Physics, Economics and Legal regarding those matters.

Another idea is for how to manage external factors in life that can affect your VCE, such as sleeping habits, social life, setting goals, being in a personal relationship throughout the year and working jobs.

I'm really excited to see something like this come into play though!

1) How to write up an Analytical Commentary (in terms of the structure) for English Language. For instance, the basic TEEEL structure can be applied to section C; however, what structure works best for section B? If there could be like a sentence-by-sentence layout of an AC structure for both the 'metalanguage subsystem' body paragraph method and the 'themes/concepts' body paragraph method, that would be soooooooo helpful  ;D

2) Another one for English Language (which can be attached to the quotes forum): could there be a list of all the themes that fall under each Area of Study so that we can search for specific quotes - As a result, we can collate more quotes under more specific sub-branches for each AoS, because at the moment, I (and I assume others) feel that their quotes may not be entirely relevant. I guess these sub headings could be derived from the study design or commonly tested prompts...

Thanks in advance  :)

Hey, I want to become a pharmacist and to get into the course at Monash, I need an ATAR of 95 and over. I did Unit 3/4 Chemistry and Biology in Year 11 and totally blew it. I am doing English, Methods and Health and Human Development and Cert 3 In Christian Studies and I want to score over 45+ for all the subjects. May I please have some tips on how to achieve that goal? Also I want to be able to manage my class and home time better, any tips?

Something relating to study organisation will be up next week! ;D

How to get a 40+ in English

Hey Sameerafaizy,

The eternal struggle, amirite? We have some amazing English tutors and past students, so this is definitely in the pipeline! ;D Is there anything in particular that you'd like, or a general guide?

I'm interested in how to take effective notes and advice tailored for specific subjects. E.g] I'm particularly interested in Physics, Economics and Legal regarding those matters.

I'm really excited to see something like this come into play though!

Welcome aboard, Raihnn!

Great suggestions. For clarity, do you mean taking notes in class, or taking notes outside of class as revision/study? :) And yeah, those external factors are so important - and it's all about finding a sustainable balance. We'll work on this, too. :)

I'm stoked you're excited about the initiative! Please let us know if there's anything we can do to make your VCE journey a little easier. ;D (Have you checked out the forums? Heaps of resources!)

How about how to get a 99+ ATAR with the especially with the subjects of EAL, Specialist Maths, Math Methods, Chemistry and Biology . Plus how to rank no. 1 at all times :)

Would be REALLY appreciated!!


Hey, halfbloodprince (nice reference haha)! :)

We've just published an article on how to achieve a 99+ ATAR here. ;D It's not tailored to those particular subjects, but the tips will definitely apply. Until then, I absolutely recommend checking out the sub-forums for each of those subjects, which can found at the following links:

English & EAL
Specialist Maths
Math Methods
Chemistry
Biology

Stick around! ;D

1) How to write up an Analytical Commentary (in terms of the structure) for English Language. For instance, the basic TEEEL structure can be applied to section C; however, what structure works best for section B?

I guess these sub headings could be derived from the study design or commonly tested prompts...

Thanks in advance  :)



Ooh YES I love EngLang requests haha. ;D

Good call with the analytical commentary template; I think that would help a lot of people. Out of interest, have you been taught to write an introduction for analytical commentaries, mtDNA?

And yeah, I can try to put something up on the themes of each AOS in this thread:

English Language 2017+: A Collation of Quotes and Language Examples

Thanks for the post! ;D

Also for the CASIO Classpad please! It was my undoing for the Methods 1/2 exam last year and I got a horrible score because I didn't know how to work it (they don't teach us in class)
Please and thank you! :D :D

Is there like, legit rivalry between the CASIO Classpad and the Ti-nspire? Hahaha. Maybe a general calculator article would be best, which covers both? :)

That sucks about the 1/2 score, though, and I feel your pain. It's great that you're looking to improve that for 3/4. :D

Hey, Ansu! Welcome to the forums. :)

I have a pretty close friend studying a very similar course (perhaps even the same course, but I do get a trifle confused). Is that the one at the Parkville campus? If so, it sounds awesome.

From what you've posted, I actually think you might benefit from a thread like this, where past VCE students give their general tips and tricks: 'Doing VCE' - the good, the bad, and the future.

In terms of time management, there's a nice piece going up early next week about study organisation; we'll keep you posted! ;D

Hey,
Just wondering whether you guys could give us tips on how to go about answering application questions (like problem solving ones) for methods? Especially since the second exam is going to be basically all application questions?
Thank you :)

Ooh nice one - so like, the worded questions? I only did Methods 1/2, but we have a number of people who completely smashed Methods, so we'll try to get something Methodsy out there for you! ;D

Welcome to the forums. :)

Hey,
How abt topic/area of study specific common mistakes and pitfalls to keep in mind. There was a really good one on Methods. If there were some for other subjects too - that'd be awesome.
Thanks   


Hey BlinkieBill,

Firstly, your Methods post made me ridiculously happy, because it's so good! ;D Thank you so much for posting that. Actually, this might be really relevant for you, Alessia? :)

Great idea about the common mistakes! Were you looking for any subjects in particular? :)

It's great to have you on the forums! In fact, I'm going to thank you in this gratitude thread for writing that Methods post. ;D

Hey Atarnotes, love your work.
But I find most of your content is specifically targeted at either 'Year 11' or 'Year 12's' a lot and less (none that I've seen) for those accelerating into a 3/4 subject in Year 11?
I'm not sure how common this is across schools actually but at my school almost a majority do accelerate.

I'm sorta looking for tips for approaching my first ever 3/4 sacs, how much I should study for them and when to begin practice sacs for which sacs and how to begin exam study so early?
* Especially some tips to avoid common mistakes - as this will be the course I make mistakes preparing for even though it's probably the BIGGEST deal of a subject.

Thanks so much!

Hey, Zacassie! ;D Welcome to the forums. :)

I totally know what you mean. I had absolutely no clue about what to expect when I did a 3/4 in Year 11 - and really, how is anybody to know what it's going to be like?

I started a thread a while back on this precise topic, which can be found here:
Year 12 subjects in Year 11: A guide to starting VCE early

Does that help at all?

I'd love one on how to deal with apathy towards study. I don't know if this is common or if it's just me, but when I have a mountain of work in front of me to do, I just think to myself, 'stuff this, I could be watching YouTube now'. And then I go and waste my time and that doesn't help all the homework I still have to do. Most of the time my attitude towards homework is 'meh' and I wish I could treat it more seriously and give it the attention it deserves. My marks are pretty bad too and I feel like I'm stuck and can't improve them no matter how hard I try. This apathetic attitude isn't helping! :-\

How about just a breakdown of some of the newer study designs (like English, Chemistry, and if possible even methods and specialist maths)?
THanks :)
It's not a complete overview, but this post by EulerFan101 is a very detailed summary of the 'all-new' content in probability and statistics. Worth a read. :)

Hey, atar.notes.user. ;D Nice username, haha.

Good thinkin'. Those study design updates are such a pain. For clarity, do you mean something like the following thread?
Psychology: A summary of changes to the 2017+ study design

I understand that's not for one of your specified subjects, but is that the sort of thing you mean? Or do you mean more like the following one for English (which is one of your specified subjects ;D)?
English Study Design 2017-2020 Breakdown

Basically, do you want the fundamental changes from the previous study design, or more detailed commentary (as in the English example)? :)

It's not a complete overview, but this post by EulerFan101 is a very detailed summary of the 'all-new' content in probability and statistics. Worth a read. :)

So good! ;D

Hi Joseph,

I think articles on stuff like setting up a study timetable or study pattern would be useful because I have problems while studying like procrastination and articles like that may help me get into the habit of constantly studying and not procrastinating too much which bad especially if you're in yr 12

Click here for a new article on how to beat procrastination. ;D

Hey Jamon, that is such a great article!

For extension 2, articles on each assessment and how to address it would be awesome, simply because ext 2 students have never received anything like them in all of school! Especially assessments like the Viva Voce and Report. I just think that an overall article on each kind of area in extension 2 (ie. assessments, schedules for major work, goals on when to start/finish research/major work) would be brilliant.

Just things like that :)

Thanks so much,

Mary

As you may or may not be aware, ATAR Notes regularly publishes articles online - entirely free. And that will again be the case this year, for both the VCE and the HSC. ;D

Awesome, right? Absolutely! But do you know what's even better?

This year, we're taking requests.

Want an article about time management? Post here.
Want an article about exam techniques in 2U Maths or Maths Methods? Post here.
Want an article about dealing with SAC results? Post here.

Essentially, it's up to you!

All you need to do is to post in this thread with your ideas. Because at the end of the day, we want to be the greatest help to the greatest number - and what better way to do that than to take requests? :D We can't guarantee that we'll cater for every single request, but if there are consistent themes - well, that tells us pretty nicely that we should be writing an article on that subject. :) So over to you, Class of 2017/18/beyond!

IMPORTANT: In order to ask a question, you will have to click here and make an ATAR Notes account.

I believe some articles on post-school life would be very helpful.
Such as:
-How do taxes work/doing taxes
-Job seeking/resumes/interview tips
-Smart money management
-How to buy a house

School only teach you the resume part.  :P

It's a nice idea but we're an educational forum for primarily high school students. We aren't financial advisors or career counsellors.

IMO it would be better to seek professional guidance in these areas, rather than taking the word of a student.. given most of it would be opinion + outside the scope of AN's purpose :)

If it was more specific (e.g. money management as a uni student), then that could work.

How are you finding Bio? Is this your only 3/4 subject this year? :)

We published this article earlier on the year (written by Quantum44), which is on improving expression in Bio - you might find that useful? Otherwise, you can find a lot of great Bio advice from recent graduates in this thread here. Really recommend going through the links provided. :) This one in particular is most recent, and got a pretty bloody good reception!

(Could you repeat this every new year for other students? I think it would be super helpful).

Anyway, it's my last year of high school, I'm in Year 12 #2018represent!

My suggestions for an article is 'Balance: Life, work, health' or something specialised, like 'English Module A: How -to' or 'The only techniques you will ever need in math/(insert subject)'

Don't know if there is already something like this but would be cool to check.

I think balance is the biggest struggle.

can i please request an article regarding the UMAT !! and whether or not people shld do it : )) TY

Cookiedream’s Guide to the UMAT is incredibly comprehensive and should be able to give you all the information you need. The general rule for the UMAT is do it if you think there is at least a chance you might want to do ungraduate medicine at the end of year 12.

Hi!
I'd love some tips and tricks on how to use the CAS calculator and also generally how to achieve a really good score in english and chemistry.

Thanks! :)

I think there's some older articles on how to use the CAS on the VCE Methods thread - but I can definitely try and write one up

Thank you so much everybody for your suggestions! I've been taking notes. ;)

Until then, we now have a complete database of existing ATAR Notes articles, which you're more than welcome to browse through!

But keep the suggestions coming, because these are seriously great. ;D

Hello! :)

I'd love to read an article from someone who received a really good score in VCE Food Studies! (less popular subjects like this don't get much attention!!  :()

Also, an article from someone who got a 50 in VCE Legal Studies!! (This will be really really useful!!)

Thanks so much! :)
yes i know what you mean...no one seems to do financial services because there is no notes for it. The final exams are really important because no other assessment tasks and classwork contribute towards the atar!!  ??? ::) :o

Hey there. Not sure what articles there are already, but this is something probably best discussed with a school counsellor, GP or other health professional. There's a number of techniques and they can help you find stuff that's useful for you.

Yep, agree with this. :)

In saying that, we do have an article in the works at the moment where a past student gives their own perspectives in this sort of issue, so keep an eye out!

What about some time-specific articles such as 'How to make the most of the September holidays before exams' or something similar?
I'm always interested to see how other people use their time :) Or maybe something to do with keeping motivated when others around you aren't studying? I'm the last in my family to finish high school, so here I am trying to memorise quotes while they never have to think about essay writing ever again :')

Also, somewhat similar to this^ something about what to do during the day when you have a late exam (like those ones that don't start until 3pm). Not sure if this already exists, but I've noticed a few questions popping up about it on the forums

How about a guide on how to become an independent learner?  :) As in, having the prudence to know what one needs to work on when the teacher doesn't set any homework, for example.

An idea came to me mid-studying (more or less because I'm currently going through it right now). Not sure how many views such an article would get but it'd probably be a nice write if anyone wanted to.

I personally have this thing called "last exam syndrome", where it's the day before my last exam and I just don't feel like studying. An article balancing out the "no, keep studying" factor v.s. the "ok yeah relax you've probably studied enough" factor could be interesting to explore. As well as any other recommendations on how to deal with it.

With exams looming, I warmly request that an article be written regarding how to mark your own practice exams - like a real examiner would. This would ensure students are actually learning as much as possible from the process of completing practice exams as a form of revision for the real thing. Did that make sense?
