Kris' wild (and incredibly scary) ride towards the HSC!

Hey all!
I'm just a dude named Kris (yes, with a k, because I'm weird like that), and I decided what better way to procrastinate than reveal my long and stressful journey of HSC  ;D.
So basically from K-10 I never really did any work. I was oblivious to school and didn't understand anything. It wasn't until the end of year 10 until I decided I might have to sort my life out.
Going into year 11 was real struggle for me, failing to have the fundamental knowledge everyone around me had. Though, I began to push and improve.

I go to a 250ish ranked public high school (not the greatest I know), and the subjects I am currently undertaking (and my ranks up to date) are:
- Advanced English (11/89)
- 2u Maths (14/84)
- Physics (3/48)
- Economics (2/16)
- Business Studies (1/67)
A bit about me: I procrastinate probably a little too much.
I don't do much study (plan to change this, you'll see with my updates) mostly homework and assignments .
I have a passion for finance and business, hoping to get into UNSW Commerce, which needs minimum 93 Atar assuming I get a band 5 in english and maths.
I plan to update hopefully weekly, maybe even more often than that.
Just wanted to reveal the life of a more average student, in the hopes that anyone can benefit!

Feel free to ask any questions about me or anything,
Stay Tuned!

Hey!!! So glad you started this journal.

Yeah, we are a bit similar in that I too did not do much study until Yr11. The start was a bit tough on me as well. I remember spending 1-2 hours on a physics question that required just simple trig :'(

Anyways hopefully you have gotten 'climatised' to year 12 by now! What do you like do other than studying?

Hey!
Yea I'm quite the inefficient year 12 student :'(
In my spare time I play guitar (electric/acoustic and ukulele) and I sometimes try sing (its pretty horrid tho).
Also love watching movies and improving my financial knowledge.

Hey Kris!

Amazing to see you starting a journal now, I've seen you a bit on the forums before. You're current rankings are amazing so hopefully you can keep all that momentum going into the back end of Year 12 and into the HSC!

I seem to have done 3/5 of your subjects so if you have any questions, feel free to ask me! I also study Commerce as one of my degrees at UNSW right now so if you do have any questions about it, I'd be more than happy to answer.

Hope Year 12 is going great and keen to see more of your posts :)

UPDATE:
So I just realised we are in week 6 of term 3 year 12.
There's only 10 weeks until trials starts, oh god. The principle also gave out notes and prices for formal and graduation, it's insane how fast everything is going. Like what!?
So uh, I haven't started notes for physics, and I am quite behind in economics and business notes.
Meaning, on top of assignments to do this term, I'm going to try get some actual study in (revision, notes etc)   :P
I've deleted pretty much all social media, so that's a start I guess.
I'm starting to get back in the grind of year 12, since I've been quite burnt out from the start of the term. Physics and English are becoming less enjoyable, the nature of light and a module-A comparative study is a dangerous combination I wish no student had to endure.
I get results for a physics task due earlier this term tomorrow, so fingers crossed for that!

But yea, need a bit of motivation to keep going but I think I can do it  ;D.
I don't know how often I'll update the journey, so I guess I'll do it when there's something eventful going on (even tho its year 12 and I don't do much besides eat, sleep and study lol).
Stay Tuned!!!

Skrrrttt,
UPDATE:
Been procrastinating a bit too much lol, watching too many movies and found myself playing tetris 'till 2 in the morning (don't ask).
Buttttt, only two more assignments to go (math Wednesday week 7 and english Friday week 8), than no more assignments for high school! Just trials and hsc, so weird. Thank god I never have to touch a depth study for physics ever again.
I got physics back, 67/80, ranked 3/48. I probs could have done better, I should not have left it till those last couple days.
I'm fairly happy with the result, despite the mark difference between 1st and 3rd being hella big. I'm pretty sure my rank has boosted up to around 2/48 overall!
I just need to smash trials to maintain it  8) 8)
Term 3 has been pretty hectic. Content for physics has been getting pretty hard, and I still haven't got on top of notes and practicing for most subjects when it comes to trials. I should probs be neck deep in studying after english is finished  :P
I've been grinding past papers for math. Really hoping to push into that b6/top 10 range in my school, fingers crossed .
I'm actually kind of enjoying year 12, its weird. I'm not pushing myself excessively hard as most people have told me to enjoy my last year of schooling, since university will be a lot difference. I'm definitely going to miss school as strange as that sounds  ;D

Hope everyone is having a smooth ride so far! I think it's gonna get a bit more bumpy lmao.

Amazing result!! Good work - 3rd is a great spot to be in, no matter the mark differences involved. Good work pushing yourself into that Top 3, best of luck holding on to it ;D
