***This is really just another way for me to procrastinate... enjoy


I'm only in year 11 but I thought it'd be great to finish year twelve and look back on all of the tiny things that meant absolutely nothing in the big picture.
I'm currently taking Biology as a 3/4, and Eng Lang, General, Econ, HHD and chem as 1/2s.

29/8/17
-bio is just a pain rn, although I just got a semi decent score on a sac I didn't study for so i'm not *too* stressed (yet)
-eng lang is one of my favourite subjects but it's quite self explanatory so it feels like a bit of a bludge
-general is so easy we're legit calculating perimeter... I'm tutoring an 11yr old on the same content
-econ is the best subject choice I've ever made
-hhd is the worst (I dropped methods, bc it was so goddamn boring, and this was my only other option ~ swapping to pe for the 3/4 next year)
-chem is beautiful but challenging... should probably be doing something about that pronto

I'd be happy with an ATAR of 98.30+, content with 96.5-98.25, less content with 95-96.5, unhappy with 90-95, and I would dig my grave with anything below 90.
Not sure what else to say? As I said, I'm only yr11 so I don't have a whole lot to say but we're only a couple of months away from 2018 and I know I'll be interested to see this after grad.

Anyone else doing similar subjects?

Welcome to AN! ;D
Congrats on the bio score! Chemistry is indeed challenging but beautiful (I'm slightly biased though aha! :) )

I'm definitely looking forward to seeing more updates in the future! ;D

Welcome to ATAR Notes, Bianca; great to have you here! :))

Ya, 100%! Nice subjects, too - any ideas for post-Year 12 at the moment?
One wug.

Thank you :D What's chemistry like in 3/4? I've heard that there is a huge organic component which I'm pumped for?!?

haha No worries!
I'd like to go into surgery, maybe specialise in cardiothoracic or paediatrics? Maybe both? Who knows...

-I reviewed my bio SAC yesterday and was disappointed to find out that I lost a few marks to silly errors >.<
-Submitted an EngLang essay that I'd be more confident with if my teacher let people ask her for help/opinions on their drafts? Apparently she didn't have time for this????  :-\
-Assessed prac. in chem tomorrow which I'd be looking forward to, but I'm going to be absent :(

Non-academia; the parents want me to quit volleyball because I "might break a finger and ruin my chances of becoming a good surgeon" ughh *does something to take my mind off of school for 2 secs and parents bring me right back yay* *writing this bc I wonder if yr12 me will read it with a broken finger and shattered dreams*

Ooh, nice! I miss English Language hahaha. Did you enjoy writing it?

P.S. Check out the English Language board! There's a section there for marking, if you're interested. :)

3/4 chem for me was really quite enjoyable, but there was a lot of hard work involved! There was a heap of organic chem in it, and I believe there still is haha! ;D (That being said, organic chemistry to me now is just a whole heap of naming compounds and making stuff haha :) )

EDIT: Typo :)

Oh, thank goodness I'm finishing one 3/4 this year!! And haha I can't wait for the organic chemistry component. In all honesty, I only enjoy it more than the other topics because it's so structured ((and I love colour coding the compounds hahahha))

So, I graduated in 2012. But I enjoyed English Language so much that I ended up studying Linguistics at uni for four years. ;)

10/10 would recommend. #nobias #somebias
