Nice!

Yes, very aware of the double degree option and some are quite high on my preferences, particularly the generalist ones :)

Those are some good questions. Do you mean study goals as in the long term? I don't really have an ATAR goal because I feel as though I would get too caught up in the numbers game. I have an aim that I keep in the back of my mind but will have to refine my study habits a bit to reach that goal haha. When I was in the younger years of high school, I had a goal of getting a 98+ ATAR and 40+ study scores in each subject (my main motivation was to use it to get into a couple of courses I was interested in and tutoring opportunities), but I don't know how realistic that goal is nowmethods hahahahaha.

Study methods for me are mainly just revising consistently (something I have not done much this year) and keeping track of it on a spreadsheet for exams and using to-do lists to help stay organized. In an ideal world, before a SAC, I'd make a checklist with each area to revise and work away at it (either by teaching the wall or other active recall methods (I've tried recording myself speaking the content and making a podcast style clip, flashcards, teaching others, and posters and summary sheets from memory). Then spam practice questions and past SACs. Nothing really revolutionary.
tl;dr
The process is: understanding the content (making sense of it and asking questions to my teacher) --> learning the content (through the methods described above)  --> applying the content to practice questions.



What about you? :)

Very nice. It seems like your problem is the same as mine, keeping free from distraction and on track to study as much as we would like.
Of course your goals are achievable :)

What's a big change you would like to make? One that's realistic and very specific. I can help keep you accountable to it if you check in :)

Hi Victorians,

How are you all doing?

Good luck with year 12 everyone,

Doing great thanks! (: Long time since this thread has been active haha! And yeah, time flies by...
Have a 3/4 exam literally in a few days and it's my first one so I'm hoping I don't do too bad!! I hoped the exams would be easier this year since of COVID, but judging on responses from the math methods exams, I dunno what to expect ;[

I wish the Queensland Class of 2021 thread was more active :)

I also have my first year 12 exams coming up.

Also, good luck for your year 12 exams (: hope you do well and pray it doesn't turn out to be hard!!  ;D

Hey everyone,

How long did your school's headstart/orientation last? How are you all preparing for next year?

Hey Snow Leopard! Our transition lasts 2 weeks (ending this week and then summer hols!!!) where we jumped into work! I'm planning to just focus on English and Methods until the end of December and then grind the rest of my subjects in January just because those are my tricky subjects and arguably my most important ones. Also doing the other ones make me panic about Dec 30th so I'm sticking to what doesn't make my heart race lol. Honestly, I'm just excited for school to finish so I can celebrate!
What about you? :D

Hey everyone,

I finally stumbled upon the VCE journey journal area of the forum - obviously I wasn’t looking very hard. Good to read through and hear some fellow class of 2021 stories and goals.

To answer your question Snow Leopard we had one week of orientation, each class for next year we had x2, 2 1/2 hour sessions. Most teachers seem okay, ranging from good to great however it’s too early to really judge. I’m planning to hopefully finish all assigned homework by Christmas, then perhaps go through and pre-note most of the year after Christmas Day.

Look forward to contributing more here in the future.

It’s going along okay for me, I think. I initially had very grand plans of going super ahead, doing many practice exams, spending much time each day doing work. In the end, I’m just doing what needs to be done before the year starts, and if time allows, complete a bit extra. How about you ‘dedformed’?

thanks for asking bean, I'm doing okay:) I do have a VCE journal if you're into reading long winded rants but tl;dr: same.

All my high school years I ditched holiday productivity, "leaving it for y12 cuz that's what's important" but I didn't get anything more than my holiday homework done. This is partly because I couldn't be bothered and partly because I didn't see a point in going ahead anymore. I did some getting ahead for Term 3 in Year 11, but reflecting on it, class just got super boring after that and my grades were still consistent with the rest of the year. At this point I'm chilling so I can get a fresh start for Term 1.

I'm super excited to get things rolling and finally finish (read: escape) school.


random but because you mentioned my username I realised it can be read as "ded formed" instead of "ded-for-med" lol. A Anyway, people call me Penelope on here because of my journal:) Good luck with term 1
