Hey Elle!  ;D

A MASSIVE CONGRATULATIONS ON THE UCAT!!🤩🥳 I'm so happy for you! You've been working so hard and it's finally over! Time to celebrate!! 🎉Also, what dedication! You even went to school after finishing the UCAT! Hats off to you. Also, you are NOT dumb and you've definitely proven that! You should definitely be proud of yourself.

Quote
Gotta admit it feels good to no longer have to balance VCE and UCAT.
I know right! Now you can just focus on VCE, rather than two things which should make things less stressful! I'm enjoying how I don't need to focus on two totally different things anymore!

Quote
I got my experimental design sac back and you guys know Iím terrible at this but the average was 71% but I got........89%!!!!!!!! I was really praying for 80%!!!
Great job on that amazing mark!!

Quote
I predict my ss to be 25-30 but my teacher said Id have to work *really* hard to get a 30. He means really hard as in itís impossible. Like I know I need to work my butt off but no need to be a pessimist
Hey, I believe in you. You can definitely get that 30 study score if you remain persistent and keep working hard. Don't focus too much on what can't happen, focus on what can happen. It's definitely possible to get a 30 study score. Don't hold back, you're nearly there.

Go and celebrate! You totally deserve it after those achievements and go smash the rest of this year!  8)

Hey Hey! Congratulations on finishing the UCAT, it's out of the way now and you can toss it in the ocean!
Don't ever think yourself as dumb. Ever. Be super proud of yourself for getting through the UCAT in itself, and all the work you put into it shows you have the amazing dedication and self discipline that will get you so far in whatever you want to do. I'm super proud of you in getting through it all, now it's time get revenge on methods and chem and smash those SACs out of the park.
Congratulations on a great bio score 89% is fantastic! I hope you have great weekend and take some time relax a little!

Hey Elle

Congrats on your UCAT score! It honestly is actually really decent. We got very similar results haha. You definitely got above 80th Percentile and if you're going for Med or Dentistry, you can still definitely get an interview. Chill tonight and then forget about UCAT and ace that ATAR.

Arty, Whyís, Evolio, Geo, Thunderdragon
Hey guys I just wanted to say thank you for your kind words about my UCAT score it really means a lot 😊😊

100 days [and 12 hours] till the Chem exam! A monumous occasion! What better day to post!! 💫💫💫

I said to myself Iíll update once a month but thereís only 3 more months of year 12 and Iím gonna miss this so much so why not enjoy it! Also idk what i want to do and course selections are closing so so soon.

Biology
Our GTAC excursion was cancelled because of lockdown :( (Iím not trying to seem spoilt or anything I know the lockdown was necessary and am not against it). Only 2 SACs left which could make or break my ss. I know I say this every update but itís the only subject I have a chance of doing really well. SAC for AOS2 is on Monday and hopefully I can do as well as Iíve been doing in practise SACs. This AOS is weird......I feel like Iím writing down ďfakeĒ answers which Iím not sure of and then get them correct....major imposter syndrome. Apparently the AOS1 sac is in 2 weeks but we havenít even started that content?!?!!

Chemistry
Analysis of organic compound sac on Monday...done! I low key panicked though it was serious this has only happened once before. Only out of 22 marks so weíll see how that goes possibly another 70%. Ive come to terms with the fact I wonít get a 40 but Iím still gonna try to do my best- whatever that may be because I love Chem so so much! I know everyone says organic Chem is rote learning and memorisation but I donít really understand that? Maybe that explains my grades hehe. Anyway food Chem is great I just sit back and chill because itís Biology AOS1 revision woooop. Also I finally learned why altering primary structure changes function......I was never bothered to answer that question in bio. Did a practise Chem exam yesterday......Im getting so pumped for the exam! Iím grateful I took the time in term 2 holidays to revise U3. But I found the 2010 exam was irrelevant(ish) I know itís because itís a different SD but I donít wanna touch combined unit 3 and 4 exams till closer to the date- after all the Chem exam is the furthest away.

Chem SAC panic attack
There was this high res HNMR I couldnít draw and Iíd done every vcaa question on this and there were some that just never clicked. I panicked moved on and did volumetric analysis and other questions. I went back spending 15 minutes on that question trying to calm myself down to get it saying itís only one mark itís okay you can do it. I finally got it in the last minute. Then started checking through my work and I just couldnít- I couldnít read anymore I couldnít understand the words I was so scared I donít even know why, Iíd done the sac checked over and I canít even describe this. I have certain coping techniques to use but when I thought about it afterwards I wouldnít have been able to use them as I wasnít even aware of what anything really was or that I was uneasy. Usually I can positive self talk or whatever but this was way different. I was shaking afterwards and my chest felt so- however it feels when your literally in danger. I felt horrible for 2 hours even after I went for a short run. I hated that. I hope this doesnít happen in my Bio sac on Monday. I donít wanna be dramatic and say this was a panic attack but Iím really not sure what it was. It wasnít like a mind blank because I was completely gone; it was unpleasant.

English
Haha Iím going to fail this exam. Why can I not write a text response. Anyway my teacher returned my paragraph and Iíve FINALLY GOT AUTHORIAL INTENT 🥳. I just need to make my topic sentence relevant to contention and do the justification at the end of the paragraph. Thanks to everyone who painstakingly drilled that into this thick skull of mine :))) Comparitive SAC pushed back to week 10 and I know I canít stop people cheating but I can just try my very best and hope thatís enough. Thatís all I can ask of myself (I may or may not have stole this from an Instagram post or another AN journal I canít remember but whoever it was- thank you I am now healthier for that😊). My The Longest Memory (TLM) summary is going along nicely although I have no themes........Iím not sure how Iíll compare it to 7 stages of grieving but one day at a time shall we? Itís been hard balancing doing well at upcoming comparative sac and fixing up my text response- kudos to my beautiful teacher for helping (yeah I know our relationship has changed from previous entries..........) apparently Iím the only one who goes to her for help?? Thatís strange my school is full of people willing to do anything to succeed. Also asked my teacher about Lang Analysis. Itís difficult for them to moderate it from home (thereís like 200 and idk how moderation works but different teachers mark different stuff like twice!) imagine doing that over zoom. Anyway almost every (incl. me) got that target audience wrong but she said if you got the target audience right for the second article youíd get partial marks- which I did! Hopefully I do decently 🤞

Methods
BAHAHAHAHAHA. Sorry Iíll be serious now. The SAC is two weeks from today and I will at least get 50% or die trying. Iíll settle for a pass though (40%). You guys have probably never seen numbers that low but.....it is what it is. The SAC is a google form yay me [not]. BUT THERES NO PROBABILLITY!!!!!! I should not fail. I will not fail!!

This is pretty random but typing that reminded me of a quote from TLM ďFather, I am running. I feel joy; not fear.Ē

Psychology
Our research methods sac was cancelled. Everythingís chill atm. U4 AOS 2 SAC in week 9. I have been avoiding exam revision. I know psychology is ďeasyĒ but itís really not research methods will be the death of me. Anyway we have 10 pages VCAA research Methods questions. Maybe thatíll absolve me. Also I just talked the WHOLE of unit 3 to my mum bless her! Turns out I know way more than I thought. Iím feeling really good about that as Iíve done no other homework tonight. I also realised that Iím not too fussed about psych exams because throughout the year they forced us to do vcaa exam questions so Iíve done ALL of them. Iíll obviously do prac exams later on but right now I feel okay as I know how to answer them what they look for etc. I wish they did that in bio as the exam answering technique is WAY different to SACs.

⭐️ Hypothetical Term 3 Exam Revsion⭐️
I wanna do maybe one Chem exam a week but itíll depend. I want to work on whatever I did wrong in the exam through the week but if I donít have time I obviously wonít do another one because there no point in doing another exam. Here are my goals by end of term
- 1 unit 3 psych exam (maybe neap?)
- 4 U3 Chem exams (Iíve already done 2 haha)
- 1-2 Chem U4 exams
- Lots and lots of English practise 😁 by hand!
- 2 U3 bio exams (done one) maybe 1 unit 4?
- For methods I already do checkpoints regularly and Iím so poor at it I SHOULD NOT be diving in before getting my basics together like I do for every other subject.

A muddle of courses imma chuck on VTAC
- Medicine at Monash (??)
- Dentistry at Latrobe
- Medical Imaging at Monash
- Science at Monash
- Science at Melbourne
- Iíd love to do science before committing to a specific health field but my parents hate that idea :(( Medicine has ?? As idk if I have the mental strength for that I mean I can barely get myself together can I really help others?

Hi Elle!

I have been following your journal for a little while and I really don't know why I haven't made a post on it :)

I wanted to congratulate you on your amazing UCAT score (so late I know). I also admire your positivity during this very hard time and I am sure that with your hard work you will be able to achieve anything  ;D

Methods
BAHAHAHAHAHA. Sorry Iíll be serious now. The SAC is two weeks from today and I will at least get 50% or die trying. Iíll settle for a pass though (40%). You guys have probably never seen numbers that low but.....it is what it is. The SAC is a google form yay me [not]. BUT THERES NO PROBABILLITY!!!!!! I should not fail. I will not fail!!
Can complete relate with this hahaha. Even though methods is one of my better subjects I can agree that the SACs are awful to put it nicely (I am so glad that mine was in school). How are they putting it in a google form with all the symbols and stuff required especially for calculus.
You won't fail! I am sure you will exceed your expectations (especially because there is no probability because probability comes from the devil and no one can tell me otherwise)

I hope you have an amazing week Elle!

I feel so mad and demotivated. How come I study but people who donít study and ~BRAG~ also get the same marks as me. They didnít do a single practise either. Iím actually stupid. I got 80% and I wish I could actually die. Ughhh. I try so hard and it doesnít work. The thing is I lost the STUPIDEST marks. My actual analysis was fine. But I lost marks for
- text type
-target audience
-making sure paragraphs flow off one another (Iím gonna contend those one btw)
- Comparison between authorial intention.
- Conclusion which links authorial intent and purpose.
- a filter for consistency of analysis

After getting my work back I started to write another language analysis off the feedback. Iím so annoyed the comparitive is in 3 weeks and I might as well kiss a 40 in English goodbye and quit going to class and sleep all day like I really want to.

Continuation of the above moping, warning:sad 
i feel very empty right now. I wish it didnít affect me but honestly I have nothing else going for me in my life. People say VCE should be about the memoryís you make with friends or the good times you had at school....what friends? Which good times? All I remember was trying to make it through every class without crying. I think I could deal with having no friends if I wasnít rubbish at school.  Iíve been in a very bad place for a long time but Iíve been hiding from it by throwing myself into school, convincing myself Iím not utter trash. But thereís no point if I canít even be good at that. I frequently wish I could take my own life but I wonít simply because Iím too scared. But Iím not really worth anything, Iím very useless. Iím not quite sure what to do now- what reason do I really have to still be here, itís all too much.

Hey there, I'm sorry to hear that you're struggling right now. VCE is hard enough as it is without all the crap 2020 has thrown at everyone. I just wanted to let you know that you're not alone, and we're here to support you.

I'd really recommend reaching out to your GP (you don't even have to go in for an appointment atm, most places are offering telehealth!) and having a chat to them about what's going on atm. You don't have to struggle through this by yourself. Having a bad run with mental health is really isolating and your brain makes you feel like you're a failure and like you're completely alone, but I can assure you that you're not. Your GP can help link you in with professionals like psychologists who are great.

If you need to talk to someone right now, I recommend getting in touch with Lifeline (13 11 14, or they also offer a text service after 6pm if you don't feel you can talk on the phone), Headspace (they're a specific service for young people, 1800 650 890) or Kids Helpline (also specifically for young people, 1800 55 1800).

Don't hesitate to send me a PM if you need someone to chat to - always happy to be a shoulder to lean on. Take care of yourself x

P.S. re: people talking about VCE being the good times and all that - I think it's very easy for us to look back on the past and romanticise it (plus anything on social media is only ever the filtered version). Everyone goes through both good and bad times - life isn't just this one upward trajectory, it's a mess that dips up and down and that's completely normal.

Hey Elle, I hope this finds you well. I understand that it's really frustrating to hear people like that who don't seem (this is the word, seem) to put in anything and take everything. And it really sucks that people are even bragging like that. This might be difficult advice, but try to socially distance (no pun intended) yourself from people who say those things, especially if they drag you down like that. And do remember that what people say may not be what they're doing -- anyone can say "I did 0 practice papers and got an 80%" without proof. What matters really is the work someone puts in, not the marks. If someone really did nothing to prep for a SAC they're only screwing themselves over for exam prep season. If you're trying to do prep for SACs it's easier to build on top of those good habits for your exam revision.

At the end of the day, comparison is the thief of joy. VCE is (imo) nasty in that it pits students against each other with study scores and percentiles and everything. There are other people who've felt and feel like the way you do. The struggle is universal.

If you ever need help or someone to talk to, never hesitate to DM me. And like K888 said, try and contact your GP, they'll be understanding and will be able to refer you to someone who can get help.

I decided to update because Iím so happy Rn! I know I shouldnít base my happiness on my grades but- it is what it is. After feeling really down in the dumps something good happened:

Chemistry:
The sac I panicked in......I got 96%!!! I was ecstatic! Still am! Although annoyed because the one mark I lost was in MC picking an incorrect indicator......maybe this SAC was a fluke 😅

Biology
Messed up that sac bad. Got a whopping 77%. Not getting a 45 in bio. Will barely get a 40. Have done one U3 prac exam and surprisingly got 80% Iím gonna hold off on doing more till I do some more photosynthesis and apoptosis/cellular signalling revision as we did those topics mostly online, the first time. Moved onto evolution + mutations SAC in week 9. I actually like this topic so far.

English
As you guys know I only got 80% on my language analysis sac and I would like to poke my self in the eyes. 🤬 anyway Iím going to re-list my mistakes so I can feel even more ]stupid:


 
Mistakes
- text type
-target audience
-making sure paragraphs flow off one another (Iím gonna contend those one btw)
- Comparison between authorial intention.
- Conclusion which links authorial intent and purpose.
- a filter for consistency of analysis

Isnít that beautiful? Anyway the comparitive sac is coming up (3 weeks wooh) and itís online so Iíve got to do REALLY well to account for the fact that 80% of people openly cheat because they give us FOUR, hours, UNSUPERVISED. At least 85% pls 😩

Methods
SAC on Friday and I want bang on 40% PLS👏👏👏

Psychology:
Guys Iím getting behind because I ran out of flashcards I know itís dumb but itís my main study methods while ďlearningĒ before diving into other methods like practise questions. So Psych and bio have been on hold for two weeks......I quite like mental health. Although itís evident Iím not resilient (as a mentally healthy person should be!) as not having flashcards results in me not studying.........

Thatís it short and sweet! ☺️

Things I have found on various VCE forums (not just AN)
Sometimes I feel like even people on the internet donít like me because Iím annoying. People are always telling me to not worry about study scores and actually  study but sometimes it comes off as REALLY rude and hurts my feelings. I literally just asked a hypothetical question. Iím not saying I wonít study please stop saying that. Other people do it and they donít get bashed :í( But whatever. Iím too sensitive for the world.

Confessions of an *extreme* introvert )
  Iím sad quarantine is ending soon. I liked being in hiding. Although it sucks that is SERIOUSLY tearing some people apart. Iíve never been this productive I love it. And not seeing people has my energy levels up. No one can reject me or be offensive 🙂. Except maybe on group chats but I can mute those! When we go back to school I wonít be able to study for exams as much or you know be ďhappyĒ. I say ďhappyĒ as Iím not truly happy but Iím also not on the verge of crying every two seconds. Iíll cherish these few months for the rest of my life I think. Utter. Complete. ďblissĒ.

Worry not... you're not alone. Altho' I procrastinate. But still. The life of an introvert. Even though I'd like to see my family. Sorry, school friends, not keen to go back to school even for you. :P

As you guys know I only got 80% on my language analysis sac and I would like to poke my self in the eyes. 🤬 anyway Iím going to re-list my mistakes so I can feel even more ]stupid:


 
Mistakes
- text type
-target audience
-making sure paragraphs flow off one another (Iím gonna contend those one btw)
- Comparison between authorial intention.
- Conclusion which links authorial intent and purpose.
- a filter for consistency of analysis

Isnít that beautiful? Anyway the comparitive sac is coming up (3 weeks wooh) and itís online so Iíve got to do REALLY well to account for the fact that 80% of people openly cheat because they give us FOUR, hours, UNSUPERVISED. At least 85% pls 😩

Methods
SAC on Friday and I want bang on 40% PLS👏👏👏

Psychology:
Guys Iím getting behind because I ran out of flashcards I know itís dumb but itís my main study methods while ďlearningĒ before diving into other methods like practise questions. So Psych and bio have been on hold for two weeks......I quite like mental health. Although itís evident Iím not resilient (as a mentally healthy person should be!) as not having flashcards results in me not studying.........

Thatís it short and sweet! ☺️

Things I have found on various VCE forums (not just AN)
Sometimes I feel like even people on the internet donít like me because Iím annoying. People are always telling me to not worry about study scores and actually  study but sometimes it comes off as REALLY rude and hurts my feelings. I literally just asked a hypothetical question. Iím not saying I wonít study please stop saying that. Other people do it and they donít get bashed :í( But whatever. Iím too sensitive for the world.

Confessions of an *extreme* introvert )
  Iím sad quarantine is ending soon. I liked being in hiding. Although it sucks that is SERIOUSLY tearing some people apart. Iíve never been this productive I love it. And not seeing people has my energy levels up. No one can reject me or be offensive 🙂. Except maybe on group chats but I can mute those! When we go back to school I wonít be able to study for exams as much or you know be ďhappyĒ. I say ďhappyĒ as Iím not truly happy but Iím also not on the verge of crying every two seconds. Iíll cherish these few months for the rest of my life I think. Utter. Complete. ďblissĒ.

Hey, massive congrats for the Chem SAC! And don't worry about the little mistakes, literally everyone makes them so you're not alone. It's not a fluke.

As for the flashcards running out, you might want to try Anki. It's like an app for flashcards but digital so there's no limit on paper, and you can throw in images, fancy text etc. etc. it's great. Unless you're already using digital flashcards of some sort.
