As a Kwonger Class of 2014 myself (who ironically later studied at Monash), congrats and welcome to the fold. :)

Re: Piano Exam
What grade are you going for, if you donít mind me asking? Good luck for it!

Thanks! I'm doing a Grade 6 piano exam. I'm aiming for an A.

How'd the rest of the Yr 10 exams go, Tigermum?

Do you currently have headstart/early commencement/orientation for Yr 11?

UPDATE: 6/12/2019

Helloooooo, it's been a while, and a lot of awesome things have happened since I finished school this year, so here is the rundown of my latest antics.

I found out a few days ago that I have been selected by the school to go on an Exchange to Italy in December next year! I'm so excited and thrilled, I have been thinking about doing it since year 7, so to now know that I will be going is just amazing. There will also be an Italian student staying with me here in August, which is very exciting.
I also got all my results back for my Year 10 exams, and they actually went great; better than I expected! I don't get too fussed over exact marks at this stage because the marking is done quite differently to how it well be done in year 12 and the tests are at a lower standard. Besides, I only really cared about English, Methods and Italian, (since I wasn't go to continue with the others,) and they were my three highest scoring subjects, so I'm quite satisfied.
I then received another result in the mail yesterday and it was feedback for my piano exam. (I did an AMEB Grade 6.) Well, it turns out I went OK and got an A+ lol.  8) I was kicking myself after I came out because I somehow screwed up one little bit on the aural section that I normally find easy, and I kept thinking about it even when I got home. If I look back on it properly, I actually played my pieces pretty well and I'm really happy that the piano wasn't ridiculously loud and echo-y like last time haha. The feedback on the marking sheet was almost illegible at times, so I spent a while pondering over whether my sight reading was sound or if it sucked.

After Year 10 was all finished, we had quite a short headstart for Year 11. It's great to finally be doing lots of subjects that I am truly passionate about (apart from compulsory RE but whatever) and my teachers are all fantastic! I hope to enjoy and savour these summer holidays but I also want to get a bit done for Methods 3/4 next year, so I've started on the textbook and actually been quite productive; I have almost finished the first chapter lol

I hope you all have a great Christmas and a relaxing break and I guess we'll go at it again next year!  :)

Grazie per quest'anno e vi auguro buon Natale.

Congrats on the exam marks and getting into the Italian Exchange! Will an Italia student be hosting you at their home?

How far do you plan to get ahead?
Also, what do you reckon is the best way to study for Methods Tests and Application Tasks?

Thanks! We are staying in Calabria. I think we will also get to do a bit of sightseeing and go to Sicily and a few other places in the South, which is pretty awesome!

Thank you so much! Yes, I will be staying in the home of an Italian student who I will have hosted here in August.
As for Methods, I don't have a specific plan as to how much I want to do over the holidays, hopefully as much as I can. I already "know" most of the content, but I haven't done much in practice. In regards to studying for Methods tests and tasks, as cliche as this sounds, I try not to focus too much on studying for the test itself, the marks will come through practice and gaining a deep understanding of the content. Once you have a strong understanding of the content, then you can do exam-style questions to test how well you can apply this knowledge but the understanding is the most important part. Best of luck for Methods next year!

That Italian Exchange sounds very exciting! I hope you enjoy it :)

Thanks a million for all the advice! I think we're gonna have our first Test and Application Task on Quadratics in the 3 week back (if you count the Friday that we're back as week 1). The terrifying thing is that I swear I have like Sacs for all of my subjects in week 3...so I better be prepared!

If you ever need any advice or help with Italian, I'd be happy to help ;)

Thank you! I'm doing 1/2 Spesh next year and my teacher was away for almost all of the (short) headstart period, so I haven't done much yet. I'm pretty excited though as maths is my favourite subject. Good luck for your VCE as well, great to see another Class of 2021er on here!
