Hi all,
Sorry if i'm not meant to bump this thread since it's been 4 ish months since the last post, but oh well :|. I guess I'll start of 2018's journal at the end of term 1.

This term was pretty quiet with just two 'proper' full length sacs and then some small chem AOS3 tasks, so term one has been pretty slow and similar to last year. It's been good so far, but I realised that it just makes term 2 and 3 even busier. I just got my englang sac back today and was honestly disappointed in the result and was expecting and wanting a bit higher. I got 83% which luckily turns out to be 17/20 vcaa marks. I was expecting a 90% or around there coming out of the sac and felt pretty confident about my answers (short answer questions), but then the results got released today and didn't go how i expected.

Honestly have mixed feelings about the result since it was only 20% of my unit 3 mark (which only counts 25% for SS), and because I know that one sac won't ruin your study score (same thing happened with psych and look what happened). I think it's just not the start to the year that i wanted. Hopefully the next sac i get back (bio) is better, fingers crossed.

I'll probably try out doing a journal here and then deciding whether or not to start my own thread, we'll see!

Nah, all good! I think people just started making their own threads, but this thread is always open to anybody who's looking to contribute but doesn't fancy their own thread. :)

On the EngLang SAC mark, sorry to hear you were disappointed. You might know already, but raw scores aren't that meaningful - so like, the ultimate difference between getting 83% and 90% is probably very slim if impactful at all.

OK so I have never posted on here before but I read the forums like ALL the time. Iím in year 12 at the moment and am LOVING it. The work load (yes this is weird 😑) and the social.

But Iím worried about after year 12... Iím kind of not looking forward to university and am feeling like I wonít know what to do with myself after all this is over. Maybe itís just a bit of phase and Iíll get my self out of it soon. I donít know 😬


Great first post - glad to have you here. :) I remember my first post after a while of lurking haha. Look forward to seeing you around!

I think it's pretty natural to feel how you are re: uni and the like. I certainly was feeling similarly at about the same time. What sort of courses are you interested in? :)

This is kind of how I felt. It took me a while to know where I was headed (and now I'm in Honours, so... that went well.), but you'll get there. :) Have a look at yourself and what you enjoy most. Talk to friends who have known you for years, your parents, sibling(s) if you have any or other people close to you. They'll probably have good recommendations for you (besides a few biases). If not, you have the AN community and we're here to help!
