rip internal marks
« on: December 20, 2019, 01:56:32 am »
Iíve just gotten my Ancient History exam back and I found that I came last out of 35 people. I knew I would get a bad result because I completely blanked out during the exam. Everyone tried to tell me that I would do well and that I was overthinking it purely because I came first in Ancient History in yr11 lmfao. Iím so disappointed in myself and I know the teachers are too. Iím also worried that my atar will be dragged down because of this. So iím asking if it possible to get in the top 10 if i do well on the other internal tasks ???? and for tips to improve in exams especially with time management and not blanking out. 😭

thank you

Hey there, friend. There is no need to worry or fret, I promise you that. Itís just one exam and I assume, probably your first internal assessment for year 12. I didnít do so well on my first internals either; overwhelmed by the weight of year 12 it was hard to focus and juggle it all. For advanced English my first internal was an 85, I graduated first in all 4units of English with my final advanced assessment getting a mark of 97. I promise there is still time to improve and that one not-so-incredible assessment is not going to ruin that for you. Also, your teachers are in no way shape or form disappointed in you. They see this every year and the detriment year 12 stress can have. Take a break over the New Years to recuperate and relax and then come back to Ancient, like all your studies, with a fresh set of eyes and a new mindset. I promise itíll all be okay and you will get where you want to be in the end, even with these hiccups along the way. <3
