Hello! Any 2022 graduates around?

Does anyone have any recommendations or advice on what units 3/4 to do early? I might be able to do one next year but I've heard for some subjects it's really important to have done units 1/2 beforehand. I'm thinking of either health or psychology or media?

And what's the difference between the 3 English subjects? Which would be the most applicable?

Thank you!

Hey there! :)

Can't comment on Media as I didn't do it.

Health - I did 3&4 without 1&2 and was totally fine. Didn't feel at any disadvantage. The study design has since changed but I'd imagine it would be the same deal.

Psych - I did 1&2 before 3&4 but think it would probably be fine, too.

If I had to recommend any of the three based purely on what you've written, it would be HHD. Are you leaning to any in particular? :)

just adding on what Joseph said

regarding psych, I'm currently at  around the top of my class without having done 1/2 except the most important thing about psych is research methods which my  teacher has briefly gone over. If you go onto 1/2 psych, learn RESEARCH METHODS.

If you don't, your marks will substantially fall . . .

Sorry for the late reply!

@Joseph41, I think I'm leaning towards either media or HHD. Psychology sounds a bit terrifying...

@Ionic Doc, might be a dumb question but what exactly is research methods? Is it the research poster? How should I prepare for it?

Thanks!!

Research methods is heavily applicable to the poster but it's not just that.  It's your understanding of how the scientific method is applied within the scope of VCE psychology. I'd definitely recommend looking at the study design to see what the topics covered in it are and asking about anything you don't understand.  If you study other sciences this will help you but it won't cover everything.

In terms of preparing,  building your understanding, remembering the terms & applying it (eg practice questions) would prepare you well for 3&4

Hi Laura! Not bad, I went to Singapore around December but other than that, nothing else. As for preparing, we got loads of Methods HW, I completed 8 exercises (3 chapters) of the Cambridge Maths Methods textbook. What about you? :) :) :)

I'm also doing 1/2 methods this year (I'm Year 11 btw ;D) and I haven't touched the methods work yet. Other than doing chemistry and biology homework, I've been seeing lots of friends and going to a couple of AN lectures.

How was Singapore? How long were you there? ;D The furthest I went this holidays was Ocean Grove.

Hi Laura, Sorry for the late reply.
I went to Merlion( a fountain with the statue of a half fish half lion), the Singapore zoo, and the national museum. I was there for three weeks (came back to Australia on the 6th).

So who's doing a 3/4 this year? Anybody suffering with me lmaooo? ;D
I do private tuition for three unit 3/4 subjects, but I can only do two unit 1/2 subjects at school. (I actually was supposed to do four - methods, specialist, physics and lit, but I changed to a selective school and they only allow me to do methods 1/2 and physics 1/2).

But it's not like I am complaining, two unit 1/2 subjects is much much less of a workload than four. Also I feel like I can spend more time studying for those 1/2 subjects , therefore quality > quantity.

haha lol.
Well tbh, it's not exactly vce subjects I am taking, the private tuition just teaches concepts that cover units 3/4 of the subjects I mentioned. If u went to james an, you would know (srsly james an went to as far as asking questions about complex numbers, and I don't get how they expect students to achieve more than 60%).
How's your studying for ebss :)

How are you guys finding remote learning at the moment?? Are any of you doing 1/2 or 3/4 subjects?

Remote learning...ehhh... I lose concentration quite a lot and I find that my classmates are quite silly when we're in the video call breakout rooms. I find it a lot more chill though as we don't get as much work and I've barely needed to take notes lol

Does this mean that our 1/2 studies might not be as relevant to what we learn in 3/4?

pretty sure 2021 is the last year where the study designs are from 2016-2021. most 3/4 subjects in 2022 will have a different study design. still mostly relevant though, only a few things change.

Does this mean that our 1/2 studies might not be as relevant to what we learn in 3/4?
it'll still be relevant

No, unfortunately I was declined from both the Monash and the Melbourne Uni programs, despite being in the top 5% of my year level and having numerous achievements and leadership awards to my name. Again, it's most definitely not all about awards and grades, and I'm grateful I received the opportunity to apply, but I am dissapointed I was declined. May I ask, what did you write about, and what leadership/awards you have which you believe granted you a place? Simply for interest sake!  :)

Ahh that sucks man :( don't let it get you down, with each year comes more opportunities!
Only two other people at my school applied, which probably boosted my chances quite a bit. I talked about how I've been a student leader for the past few years at my school, and how that has allowed me to be involved in community events. I mentioned my other extra curriculars, which include being in my school's youth ministry program and social justice team (I go to a Catholic school), and how I was in my town's Easter fair as part of my boxing gym. For the other sections about aspirations and stuff, I talked about how I want to do medicine and work in places where healthcare is needed most (e.g. crisis areas, remote areas) :)

As the new year creeps closer and closer, the prospect of me getting into undergrad medicine seems lower and lower.

Hey,

It's definitely not an impossible goal. You still have next year and the year after, and a lot can happen in that time! If you don't get into undergrad med at Monash, it doesn't make you less of a person or less deserving of being a doctor. The med course won't be going away anytime soon - there are other ways you can get in and pursue the career you're after!

All the best! :)

While I can relate to this, if there's one piece of advice that I would've given myself at the start of Yr 11 is that you really need to believe in yourself and believe that you can achieve your goals, because only then can you have a clearer mindset and therefore think about HOW to achieve the goals themselves as opposed to IF you can achieve them. You still have plenty of time, try to stay on top of your subjects and up to date. At least from what I saw, the people who did really well in Yr 11 were the ones who seemed like they were up to date if not ahead and took their Unit 1/2 and 3/4 subjects seriously (obviously prioritise 3/4 subjects, but don't neglect 1/2 especially with subjects like Chem). I also agree with what Im21074.

Another thing, is that rather than thinking of it as getting into undergrad med, break it down into smaller goals that might help you like aiming to do well in your 3/4 subject this year and working towards that.
