I feel that too, it's the strangest thing (isn't year 12 already stressful enough?) Good job on your psych and chemistry SACs (it sucks that you didn't get to do your bio though!)

I think that you should set yourself some goals (as checklist if that works for you?) of what you want to achieve. Maybe spend the first week doing some revision and then start to do holiday homework and move ahead with some of the content in the other weeks. Fit some UCAT prep in there when you can. Obviously just do what works for you and make sure you leave some time to relax too  :D


Of course we care! There are tonnes of people in this community that will always be happy to read your problems/successes and everything in between. Always feel free to message me or post on your journal when you need support  ;D ;D (atarnotes people are cool people, what can we say?)

All the best  8) -CM-

Thanks for all the kind words :)
I forgot to mention my school does 2 SACs per AOS so Iíve done

2x Chem
1x bio (cause the second one got cancelled)
And 1.5x psych (the first sac was all of AOS1 for some reason and the sac yesterday was a quarter of AOS2 I guess??)

So Iím not missing out to much on bio, thankfully. About UCAT Iím struggling where to start. I canít seem to access all the recommended modules (if you have medentry of course if you donít sorry for assuming!)
Congratulations on completing your Psychology and Chemistry SACs! Yeah, revising over content is good especially so that you can target the areas where you have gaps in your knowledge. That way, you'll have a good grasp of everything. I think you should do both like CM suggested. That way, you'll have the benefits of learning new content and also the benefits of clarifying any misconceptions.
Thanks! My school splits AOS into 2 SACs so those were my second SACs for those subjects :) and thanks for all the kind words Evolio.

Hey,
I was going to post this last night, and i know its easier said then done, but feel free to reach out whenever you need, year 12 is stressful and we all need somebody to lean on sometimes :)
I honestly feel your pain I was supposed to sit two SACs today (Bio and Legal) as well and its a pin cause you'll have to revise again for them whenever school chooses to sit them yay  ::)
Do you have any goals/tasks for this school holidays, to help you achieve your ultimate goals??

To be honest no. But maybe just focusing on really consolidating the first AOS for all my subjects we have already learned and making notes which I didnít have time to (especially for psych). And just really grinding methods and doing UCAT. Then I guess Iíll start on the next AOS if I have time? (sounds crazy to think Iíll run out of time being house bound for three weeks).
What about you? Maybe I could steal some of your ideas ;)

I'm finding it hard to find the motivation to complete any form of study with the idea of remote learning (exciting but tbh I love going to school like Year 12 is hard but so fun) but I am planning on making sure I am up to date with Edrolo, textbook questions, and write some practice essays and if after that I'm feeling motivated I'll probably re-read my english texts and start making notes for the next area of study for my subjects :)

My motivation is also waning Iím planning to start doing work tommrow hopefully....

I just got my English creative sac back and only got 83%. I feel so worthless maybe I should give up getting an atar that high. I canít rven begin to imagine how many people are ranked above me. I wish I could just die. I tried so hard but I still couldnít do it. I think I give up. Thereís no way I could even maybe get a 35. I donít know why I ever though I was good enough because Iím not. Oh well thereís three weeks till school I guess

It sucks you didn't achieve the mark you wanted, I honestly understand how you feel. If its any consolation there was a girl that went to my school once and she did alright on all of her sacs and the exam but here's the twist she went on a holiday during one of the sacs and got a 0 for it yet she still managed to pull a 33. I think you should be proud for your 83% as that has the potential to get you a 40 provided you do just as, if not better on your other sac's and the exam. Try not to focus on the uncertain for all you know you could, admittedly be ranked poorly but you dont know that for certain. You could be ranked like 3rd or hell even 2nd point is you never know and pondering it won't help you. Easier said than done but maybe you can try and use it as a source of motivation to do better? you have 3 weeks to use to your advantage :)

And I guess the creative isnít on the exam right? And it did seem to be lowest score/weakest area last year ( I think I got maybe 78 or something?)so maybe the same will be true for this year? Thanks for the good advice

Just got my psych sac results back! Although it was only half a sac (so worth a quarter of aos 2) Iím really happy with my score. I got 24/25. I was not feeling confident at all especially with all the anxiety about it (suddenly?) being the last day of schools. It kind of offsets how bad I did in English yesterday. And although itís only worth 2% of my study score Iíve decided I should be proud.


Anyway in regard to my super long break today I did some electrolysis faradays law stuff (they expect us to self teach all of chapter 9!!!!). And a bit of UCAT and Iím slowly improving in verbal reasoning! I canít see myself ever being in the 80th or 90th percentile but only time will tell. Iím about to do a bit of Methods before I call it an early night (Iíve been sleeping after midnight lately!). Hopefully tommorow I can run 5km and do some more school stuff. I also watched 2 bad movies today

I got my chemistry sac back and it was B A D. 72% I was aiming for an 80% and just fell short. I know itís better to see whether you can improve instead of dwelling on your mark. But we received our results over email :( so I may have had a little cry about it but it made me feel a little better about English which I thought was low but this is a new level.

On the bright side the average was low so Iím not the only one who struggled. Iím really worried about my ranking though. Iíve been above average in both SACs and since my school splits up SACs this is equivalent to 1 AOS1 sac so 8% of my study score. I canít help stressing. My rank is probably like 90/180 😫 Iím gonna kiss that 40 in chem goodbye.
