1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects?
I am in Year 10, and I study English, Maths Methods, Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Psychology (soon to be Maths Specialist)
2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification.
I don't passionately hate any movie that I can think of right now ahah
3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice?
I don't know? A gun I guess, because if I had a knife or something I would have to be close to them.
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.
5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say?
I would say that I have been through many problems, but have come through with a positive attitude. I am currently employed as a casual-time worker, I play the violin and have a love for books.

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?

Hmmm, there isnt any movie I actually hate. I just watch movies and take it all in  ;D

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!

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

Hi han0002! :D

Welcome to the ATAR Notes forums! ;D

  • For this essay question, you may want to firstly compare their differences in both protagonists experiences, and figure out what it is that they have learnt. For Example, Is it hidden symbolism? Or is it very simple and laid out chronologically?

    Also, you could compare the language used; is it complex? Or tone, do they speak in a quiet tone? etc.

    Furthermore, acknowledge and state the time period in which both texts are set in and how this could affect their experiences and what they have learnt from them. :)

I have come across some links that I think may be useful for your comparative essay:

This YouTube Video on "Tracks", will be able to give you context to incorporate into your comparative essay:
https://youtu.be/kPOEzzDWfo4

This website has some quotes from "Tracks":
https://www.goodreads.com/work/quotes/76177-tracks

Charlies Country Quotes:
https://quizlet.com/341613028/charlies-country-quotes-flash-cards/

Also, if you post your original question in the HSC or VCE English thread (Depends if you are HSC or VCE), then you may be able to get some more advice or tips from others! ;D

I hope this is helpful,

1. What year level are you in right now, and what are your subjects?
In currently in Yr 11 at Loreto Normanhurst and I am studying Chemistry, English Standard, SOR 1, Extension 1 Maths, Modern History and Biology.

2. What movie do you most passionately hate? Provide justification.
The Princess Switch. Talk about cringe! x 1000.

3. In the event of a zombie apocalypse, what would be your weapon of choice?
In the middle of exams right now so at this point would probably just give myself up to the zombies.

4. Who do you want to be as a person, what do you want to achieve?
I want to be a doctor because I love to help people and love that I would be constantly learning on the job and making people feel better. Ultimately I just want to be happy and healthy.

5. If you had to summarise your life in a paragraph, what would you say?
Its pretty chill right now (apart from exams) and although school and friends and drama can be a bit trying, life is getting there and we're moving on pretty well. We're survivin.
