So many new people! I would greet all of you individually but I'd be here all night! Hello and welcome to AN (that's what the cool kids call ATAR Notes) all of you, it's great to have you here.

Here's a link to the general forum rules and help if you're struggling to get around. (These are pretty important).

If you're looking to ask and answer questions about VCE, pop over here.

If you're interested in HSC, rock on over here.

If you're a Queenslander, head over here. There aren't too many resources for QCE as of yet, but you'll find some VCE resources to be very similar.

There are also threads for the younger year levels - just go to the main page and scroll down to your respective Education Discussion board and you'll find year 9 and 10 discussions. The more you navigate, the easier it gets.

Feel free to explore and get used to it all! I moderate games and creative threads, so if you would like to join in some sweet procrastination, here's a link to the games and general chats. Otherwise the Notes tab is at the top of the page.

If you have any other questions, feel free to PM me or other moderators or admins. We have green, blue or red squares on our profiles. Enjoy your stay. :))

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
I am currently in year 11, completing two year 12 subjects including legal studies and accounting. My other year 11's include business management, English and further maths.
2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification.
To be honest, I rarely tend to watch English movies as I love Bollywood too much, however, out of all the English movies I have watched, I dislike American Beauty due to the weird turn of events and the fact that it is just a 'messed up' film. Unfortunately, we had to watch it in English and therefore, analyse it. I DON'T RECOMMEND watching it.
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice?
Having watched world war z, I have realised that weapons are of no use considering zombies multiply. Instead, I would most likely just get food (brains) to distract them and run and lock myself in a place I think is safe.
5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say?
If I wrote an autobiography summing up my life, the title would definitely be 'a boring overachiever who stresses too much'.
I have spent my whole life believing that school is extremely important (each to their own I guess) so I have always invested my time and efforts (and money due to all the tutoring I get) into my studies. Thus, my social life is technically hanging by a thread. However, I have come to a realisation that whilst I live a boring life, the hard work has really paid off. I started to notice this in year 5 where I won a medal for humanities, got the Kwong Lee Dow scholarship last year (and the only one to get it) as well as being one of the four selected to speak to Parliamentarians about whether the upper house should be abolished (I disagree if anyone is wondering). Further, I tend to get the results I want, if I put in the sweat and tears (lots of them because I always have mental breakdowns) to my work. And I'm ranting about myself again, but essentially, I live a boring life which revolves around getting good grades. But I do love my life if anyone was concerned because, at the end of the day, I achieve the things I want to achieve.

I'm currently in year 10 doing two year 11 subjects, bio and methods
2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
 Probably 'War for the Planet of the Apes'. It's not that I hate it, I just went into the movies to watch it with a friend and we didn't realise it was apart of a series so we were soooooo confused ahaahahahaaha
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Ummmm a cricket bat? not too sure but seen it in the movies and I feel like an ammo based weapon wouldn't be great cause you have to carry tonnes of stuff around with you

Hey all,

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
Year 11 in 2019, I currently study Further Mathematics 3/4, Mathematical methods 1/2, Chemistry 1/2,  History 1/2,
VSL Spanish (LOTE) 1/2, English 1/2

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
1990 thriller film Arachnophobia gave me nightmares for a week after watching it with my dad when I was about 9 years old. Imaging the 1000s of tiny baby spiders and the huge mama spider terrified my 9 year old core. Still get goosebumps thinking about it lol. No wonder I hate spiders!
I find it laughable re-watching and realizing that it wasn't that bad! haha
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Pepper spray them all!! lol And perhaps a zombie bite antidote would come in handy!!

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I would love to be a chemical/environmental engineer and perhaps even a lawyer. I would love to advocate for sustainable energy and reducing our carbon footprint significantly to combat global warming and climate change. I am passionate about recycling and waste management  also educating youth and kids about advocacy for change. I also am a big supporter of being environmentally friendly and protecting our oceans and planet. In my career I would love to be a change maker and help make a greener more sustainable and accountable future. I also would like the opportunity to extensively travel and work overseas. I would see that a huge accomplishment for myself. I am  very passionate about justice and I gravitate towards law and have a global understanding/perspective. I am a rep for the Melbourne Sealife Aquarium Ocean youth program and my local council's waste management committee and was also apart of my schools STEM Academy and language immersion program,.  I cant wait for what the future brings...

5. If you had to summaries your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
Filled with lots of ups and downs with parents/family breakdowns,trauma, financial hardship and stress.
Can be hectic and challenging and times. But you must persevere no matter what you have to face and manage what you can.
Also filled with many memories and joy. Good always balances with the bad
Never take things for granted because one day you might wish you had appreciated it a bit more.
Live, love life to the fullest each day and never lose optimism for change.  ;D

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

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve?
I would like achieve a high ATAR so I can work in medicine, so I can help as many people as possible.

Hey! Welcome to AN :)

I've wanted to be a marine biologist for as long as I can remember and am also passionate about the environment :). Definitely agree that looking at conservation issues from a multi-disciplinary lens is important - and it's something I love about my course (Bachelor of Science Advanced - Global Challenges (Honours) )

As part of one of the science units (uni subjects) I'm taking atm we looked at how the biggest impacts on the environment (eg. having less children, plant based diet, flying less) are discussed far more infrequently in school textbooks than relatively low impact actions (eg. changing lightbulbs, reusable shopping bags) so it's especially great that you're able to see some outside perspectives early on.

In your post you talk about having a global understanding (something I'm definitely still working on!) - how have you developed this?

Welcome to the forums! :)

Love the subjects you've picked - if you swap out English it's identical to my subjects during VCE. What types of books do you read?

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
Hmmm, there isnt any movie I actually hate. I just watch movies and take it all in  ;D
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
A long stick, because you can use it to whack those zombies, and if one attempts to bite you, you can use it to defend your self from their bite
4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to ? (Optional)
I've been to the hospital every year, and because of that, I want to be able to help others in a medical setting. I'd would love to create the newest vaccine that will save lives!
5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
a bumpy roller coaster, cause life is everything :~}. But to those who want some advice, do extra curriculars! They really do help.

Welcome to the forums! :)

Given your interest in the medical field, did you study biology early or is this something you're planning on picking up later?

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
my school doesn't have yeah levels, fun fact, but I'm an equivalent year 10 student. I take 1/2 biology, 1/2 English language and 1/2 drama.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
GROUND HOG DAY. Probably because I was to young and was traumatised by the sad scene (no spoilers), but considering the significant character development, and creative (if not necessarily unique) story line, I have now convinced myself I should give it another try. What were we talking about again?

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Scissors. Hear me out. Unless the zombies are close enough for me to stab them with my scissors, I'm definitely running away. Plus scissors would be useful in other situations as well. And I never specified what size scissors.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I want to be someone who puts 110% of my effort in, and someone with an optimistic outlook on life. In terms of achievements, I want to study medicine and become a surgeon. (not sure what type yet)

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
Oh I've got a couple of secrets, but I'm a hard working kid, a bit of a nerd, who likes weightlifting and tennis.

That sounds really interesting! When you say 'equivalent year 10 student', do you mean that they make classes based on ability, or is there some other factor I'm completely unaware of?

Also, Welcome to the forums ;D

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects?
I am currently in year 10 and I do VCE Psychology (Units 1 & 2).
2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification.
I have never really hated a movie, but I once accidentally bought the wrong cinema tickets and ended up watching The Emoji Movie. I have no idea who wrote the script but it was TERRIBLE. I am an open-minded person but I literally cannot understand how such a boring and mindless movie could have possibly been created. The plot is all over the place and you are hoping for a climax throughout the whole movie, but you are unfortunately left questioning why you spent 90 entire minutes of your life watching pure rubbish.
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice?
I'm totally not into that brutal stuff, but if I'm being honest, decapitation would probably be my go-to (a weapon as simple as a chainsaw would do the job easily). Once the head's off, the brain will quite obviously be lying somewhere on the ground. This will attract other zombies and therefore provide a distraction for you to quickly flee the scene and find a safe hiding place.
4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve?
My dream since I've been able to talk is to become a primary school teacher. I hope to study at The University of Melbourne because they have great courses for Education. I know it's pretty difficult to get in but I'm gonna work as best I can during VCE so I can earn an ATAR that I can be proud of.

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

I'm in year 11 and I'm doing Legal Studies, Biology,  English, Chemistry, Business Management  :( and Further Math,

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)

I haven't met a movie that I passionately hate but I agree with the posts above. Twilight is overrated and the Last Airbender was a complete and utter mess.

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

Honestly, I'd probably be dead...

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

I want to be someone who helps other people. To have enough money to live and give others a hand but not so much that life becomes all about getting more of it. If I can do/create something to improve another's life, then that would be all I want to achieve.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).

Not a paragraph...more like a few sad words. Studying. Eating. Sleeping. More Studying. Typical VCE life...

11, yr 12 History revs, HHD, Bio, English, Methods, VCD
2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
ok, just noticed this said movie and not subject! whoops! Do TV shows count? I currently despise the Shadowhunters series as it hardly follows the books at all! I love those books and the TV show does it no justice whatsoever. I would 110% recommend reading the books over the TV show, or just not watching it at all! :)
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
Does Hermione's handball count? I keep all sorts thing in there!
4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
I want be happy and content with who I and what I'm doing. I really want to go into medicine, but really just somewhere where I can be happy for a long, long time.
5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects? (Mandatory)
I'm in Year 11 and undertaking Literature, 20th Century History, 3/4 Psychology, General Maths and Indonesian
2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification. (Mandatory)
The Minion Movie because those annoying yellow things were only acceptable in the first Despicable Me, and an entire 90 minutes (maybe more) devoted to them was UNBEARABLE
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice? (Mandatory).
I don't think I'd have time to pick a weapon because I'd be one of the first to die
4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve? (Optional)
This sounds really cliched, but I want to look back on my life with satisfactions and honestly say that I lived it to its full potential
5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say? (Optional).
It's been fairly exciting, enjoyable, educational and worthwhile
