A massive congrats Arty!  ;D

That's great that you feel that way about English!
I feel the same way as you with Spesh! For exam 1, one of the questions required so much working out/so many steps and the others were just weird for me. I think I made a lot of silly mistakes too.

I'm sorry you were sick before your chem exam but as people have said above, you've done so much hard work for it and you should definitely be proud of that!

I know right! I keep thinking that I have an exam tomorrow or something lol. It hasn't sunk in yet that we're officially finished!! With everything!

Have a good break!

congrats on your results!

Seems like you got super unlucky with your study scores but great to see that you are happy with your ATAR. Getting 4 scores in the top 10% for four very different subjects is also a massive achievement in itself!

As for tutoring, I don't think it is a complete barrier. Some companies have certain study score thresholds for who they hire but it is still very possible tutor.

Hey Arty!
First congratulations on your results and your course offer. To be so close to 40 in so many subjects is disappointing but still a great achievement and your ATAR itself is amazing (thank goodness for specialist scaling). Also, I can't believe that you only lost six marks on the art exam yet only got a 39 - that does seem unfair to me (but also proves how incredible you are at art despite not hitting the 40 - I've loved following all your artworks by the way, you are so talented!). 

All the best for your course at Unimelb and thank you for an awesome VCE journal this year  8)

Hey Arty,

Firstly, I'm so proud of you. I understand your disappointment, and I know it hurts, but know what you achieved wasn't a small feat. It's not easy to score so consistently well in all subjects, yet you did! I know you're down about art - but I've said this before and will say it again. A study score doesn't define your knowledge or passion for a subject. Losing only 6 marks on the exam is incredible, and although you wanted a higher study score, I also want you to know that you are such an amazing artist and so many people love seeing your artwork. A study score can never change that. I know it's hard to come out of, but know that we are all so proud and happy for you and what you've achieved last year. You were so hardworking and persistent, and nothing can take that away from you. Secondly, congrats on your ATAR! Amazing work.

All the best for uni and beyond! May 2021 be your year.

Thanks so much Sine - it means a lot! Thanks so much for your help and assistance throughout the year :)

I'm a bit late to the party but.....

Congratulations Arty!!!!!

I can understand how that can be so frustrating and disappointing with being so close to the 40's, however, that amazing atar can hopefully make up for it a bit to show the amazing work and dedication you put in all throughout the year. That really sucks with Art, but as others have said, it should never define your love for the subject, and the amazing art you've done throughout the year and that you'll hopefully continue to do. I'm so happy and proud for all the you have achieved, and i've absolutely loved reading your journal throughout the year.

Best of luck with 2021 and uni!
