Hey Everyone!

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
I'm a Class of 19' student, and will be undertaking Math Methods, English Language, Philosophy, Legal Studies and German in 2019, having done Business Management in 2018.
2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
I don't hate a particular movie, but since I think it still fits the question; I absolutely despise any house renovation TV show. I feel like thhey're self defeating, and just don't have any time for them, and hopefully I never will.
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
My trusty tennis racquet! I've seen it used before, so in a zombie apocalyse I'm sure I wouldn't feel bad trying it out.  ;D
4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I really want to do something important and contribute to society, hopefully doing something I enjoy and that I can do for a long time. What that is, I honestly have no idea yet.
5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
I'm not good at these ones! I'm your stereotypical nerd who isn't really that smart but loves playing sport and has done so since I could walk. My life has been full of unexpected surprises, mostly good but never boring. I probably make up for that excitement by being the most secluded person I know, but I can't tell if that's by choice or just because people don't like me, probably the later. :'( Not something I can really work on in Year 12 though but I'll try!   :-[

I'm hoping to stay pretty active around here, so feel free to say hi or PM me at any point!  :) Hope I can positively contribute to discussion!

Welcome, welcome!!

Tennis racquet is an intriguing choice, I like the concept.  :)

Do you have a favourite subject at school?
HSC 2017: | PDHPE | Chemistry |
HSC 2018: | English Adv | Mathematics | Biology | Food Tech |
2019: Year 13 Gap Year @ Youthworks College

Welcome, welcome!!

Do you have a favourite subject at school?
Hi! I wouldn't say I have a single favourite anymore, but more that each subject serves a purpose and I hope that carries me through Year 12  :P

Methods for its objectivity, Philosophy for its class discussion, Legal for its relevance and general interest in current affairs, German for a different perspective on life (sorta goes with Philosophy actually!) and EngLang because I feel like I "missed out" on learning how English is structured in primary school, and that until 2018 it adversely affected my performance in English. That said, there's a lot of things that I believe primary schools should teach, that they don't.  :-X

Busman was probably my all-round 'favourite', but some unfortunate circumstances this year resulted in it not being as enjoyable as I would've liked, and unsurprisingly a lower study score than I would've preferred, but that's what doing a VCE subject early is for, right?

In hindsight, I probably would've chosen Global Politics over Business, because I'm interested in both but having committed to BusMan in Yr10, I didn't realise until it was too late...but thinking back to Year 10 now I also really wish I'd pushed to do more VCE subjects early, something I don't think schools advocate enough. That's in the past now though, onwards and upwards!
2018: Business Management

2019: English Language, Maths Methods, Legal Studies, Philosophy, German

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects?

I can finally say this without making that new year's joke - I finished year 12 last year! So I guess my year level is now first year uni student if that counts? Although I'm still not sure which institution I'll be enrolling at.
As for subjects, my main ones were English, Methods, Biology and Indonesian  ;D
2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)

Iron man 3. I mean, wow, what a let down after a couple of solid marvel films. The whole time Tony stark just exuded this self-centered and arrogant persona and during the moments when his PTSD was affecting him I was just constantly thinking this is acting... This is a film. No suspension of disbelief and a somewhat pathetically and ironically excessive ending to the point that I stoped taking it seriously. (Rant over, normally calm and collected persona returns ;) )

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).

Ooh I would say something deep like ability to interact with zombiekind and reach some sort of truce but I'd be wayy too scared to do something like that. How about instead, extreme high pressure water hose?

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)

Short term goal: Get into my course at uni
Long term goals: Find happiness and security,,, eg buy a house, find a life partner, get a stable income, be content with the passage of life... Nothing too out there
Oh also to be someone that people trust and appreciate

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
So far, it's been the prologue and first introductory paragraphs of the novel. The one where you kinda skip over cause you're not entirely sure what's been happening and are keen to get into the actual storyline, only to realise later on in the book that some pretty key moments and key ideas were introduced.

Welp, hope all that formatting worked :/ thanks for reading!

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects?
I am currently in Year 12 doing the HSC (fun times if you have new syllabuses for your courses). My subjects are Standard English, Standard Mathematics 2, Modern History, Geography and Business Studies.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification.
The Neverending Story. That flipping movie was ALWAYS on repeat at home as a kid and it just scared the crap out of me. Now, I watch movies and I tend to like them but some just confuse me (like everything else which is fine by me)

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice?
Nuclear Weapons. It will definitely wipe the zombies out right? Just need to have good international relations (with the USA and Russia) so we can use them.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve?
I want to be a person with a good purpose. I want to know what I am doing is for a good purpose and not just for comfort. Also, I want to be able to stand up for what is right (that kinda relates to having a good purpose but it is different if you get what I mean).

There is things I want to achieve in the short term and the long term.
Short term achievements I want to accomplish is:
  • Getting an ATAR of 92
  • Getting a State Rank in Geography
    • Improve in my Writing Skills
    • To be Consistent in Study for the HSC

Long-term achievements I want to accomplish are:
  • Getting into a good Uni (like UTS or Macquarie - anything that has amazing business/technology facilities)
  • Landing a stable job
  • Get marry
  • Have my own family

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say?
My life actually has been eventful. I have experienced different lifestyles since I've been born (country lifestyle, semi-rural lifestyle and residential lifestyle - three really different ways of life but I did enjoy all of them). Also, it has always been chaotic with my family. I'm just ready to change up my life (which happens in like 11 months and I'm so excited about that). I love my friends and family very dearly and cannot wait til HSC finishes so I can spend time with them before uni starts.

Hi chris_tina_ !!

First of all, welcome to the forums! It's going to be great to have you on here to share your Year 12 journey with all of us :)

Nuclear weapons, a very interesting choice I must say. Let's just hope it won't fuel the current nuclear crisis in North Korea.

I love your goal setting, especially how you have broken it up into short and long term. This will give you a very clear sense of direction and purpose for the next coming 10-11 months. Just with your goal of achieving a state rank, it's amazing to set high expectations for yourself but I hope you won't be disappointed if it wasn't meant to be. Achieving a Band 6 in any subject is already an amazing achievement, so anything after that (eg. a state rank) is a bonus!

Were you interesting in getting into any specific degree at uni?

Anyways, good to have you on the forums and looking forward to your contributions ;D

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects?
I am in Year 11 this year, first year to do the ATAR system in Queensland (btw, can anyone enlighten me on any important general details with this system?). I will be doing: Chemistry, Biology, Mathematical Methods, Specialist Maths, General English and Physics.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification.
tbh, I'm not exactly a great fan of movies - documentaries interest me more. I know, I know... :o

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice?
Similarly, I;m not greatly acquainted with the concept, but, you know, maybe travel back in time to prevent whatever caused this apocalypse. I'm really not too sure.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I want to go to the University of Queensland and study undergraduate/provisional entry medicine, get an ATAR of 99.95 and 100th percentile in the UCAT. And I guess I can't really leave out getting rich...

5. If you had to summarise yourself in a word, what would you say? (Optional).
Ambitious.

Welcome to AN Twisty314!

What sort of documentaries do you watch?

The way ATARs are calculated vary a bit between states and I'm not sure how Queenslands work, but basically they add up your scores for each subject you do and then rank everyone and from that you get your ATAR - for example if you get an ATAR of 80 then you beat 80% of the state. (ATARs are used nationally but calculated separately in each state).

I really enjoy watching any Maths or Science related documentaries. I also enjoy reading a lot on the same sought of subjects too.

Thanks! A little anxious entering into the new system I admit, but this has certainly helped!  ;)
