I go to a catholic school and it's quite annoying how one kid in one of my classes started saying that everything that I believe in is wrong just cause they're an atheist. Like, I respect you for having a different religion, but that doesn't mean that you have the right to say the most derogatory things about Christianity.

When your teacher tries to use scaling as incentive to make you pick Spanish as an elective for Year 9. She said that "languages get 'extra points' because they're harder" ::)

I should note that LOTEs do get extra points. They get 5 bonus points after the actual scaling happens as an incentive for more students to take up and learn a second language.

Obviously, doing subjects for scaling etc is not the wisest thing but she isn't wrong that they get extra points. I wouldn't agree that it is because they are "harder" though.

VCAA has said the following:
Quote
As a result of government policy to encourage the study of languages, a further adjustment is made during the scaling process. Each Language is adjusted up by adding five to the initial VTAC scaled study score average. All students of a Language receive an adjustment, but it is not a uniform adjustment. For study scores at or close to 30, the adjustment is 5, but the adjustment decreases as the study score moves away from 30.

Yep. I told her exactly that; they get scaled up because they're LOTEs, hence the obligatory rolled eyes emoji after my quote. She was looking at the VCE scaling report, but we're in the QCE system. I would still imagine (?) that something similar would happen, though. I don't have any plans of pursuing a LOTE, so her persuasion is a lost cause :P

Guys completely irrelevant to studying but I think that thereís a hidden camera in my alarm system. Iíve told my parents about this but no one really believes me. The reason I can tell itís a camera is that it doesnít particularly focus on the range of the room. Should I be worried guys?

Your parents would probably know about any form of surveillance they installed in their own household..

You seem to have posted in the wrong area. This is not in line with forum etiquette of keeping threads on topic. You can bring this up in its own thread in general discussion if you would like further discussion, please. This is not an advice thread.

Something that shits me is when your camera doesn't focus on what you want it to, no matter how hard you try to adjust the angle, zoom or, well, focus. WhAt DoN't YoU wAnT mE tO sEe

When your little brother so kindly illustrates a picturesque rendition of a male reproductive organ on the shitty drawing of a praying mantis that you worked on for an hour.

You really know you've fr*cked up when it's 2AM and you still need to finish a good third of your English before it's due. I barely have the strength to lift my mug of coffee to my lips aaahAAaAhHG.

We've all been there. I pulled an all nighter once for IPT, I actually didn't sleep at all because I had to get ready to go to school as soon as I was done. Which leads me to that the only reason I had to do this was because one of my teammates said he 'lost' his part the night before the assignment was due.

I've stayed up the whole night one time because my english teacher told the whole class what to actually do the friday before the weekend, and we still had no idea on what to do.
