Stormbreaker's VCE journal

HELLO ATAR NOTES!!!
Yup it is me Stormbreaker, so today it 10 days until my first ever unit 3/4 exam (I am currently in year 11 doing a year 12 subject). So I plan to do crazy amounts of practice exams leading to the real exam and hope I get a study score of around 30 for this subject. So far this year I screwed up this subject because of online learning and everything. Anyway next year and the duration of this year I plan to keep posting here and give you all updates about my life. I find this a good way to keep motivated. Remember to tune in on my life during the holidays.

My goals and subjects:
ATAR aim: 86 minimum
Subjects: Ancient history unit 3/4, I want around 30 (this subject scales down too).
Math methods 1/2 (dropping it for further unit 3/4 at the end of this year). My goal for further is around 40-45+
Chemistry, I plan to get a tutor for this subject during the holidays as this subject was disastrous. I want a study score around low 30's RAW for this subject.
English aim (plan to get a tutor this holiday too for a head-start next year) around low to mid 30's.
Biology is going all right so far my aim is around 35+
Economics is probably gonna be my ace card, my aim is 45-49 (Averaging A-B's in this subject and won a class award).

Remember all you readers to post here as well so we all can keep each other updated and thank you for reading :)

Hi Stormbreaker! It's great to see another future Year 12 Journal here :D
I hope your exam went well! Do you have any passions/hobbies outside of academics?

Hey there, I do have a lot of interest in sports especially swimming. But because of that things that happened this year I can't do any of that, but I know I will get a chance to do those next year. What about you?

My unit 3/4 exam update: So I had my exam last week and it went decently well. If there is one thing I am glad it is that fact that I finished it as history was quite a long and time-tight exam. I will keep you all updated once my study score comes out. Now moving on to my school holiday homework, for English my school is doing Station Eleven, I am Malala and Price as well as the play known as Extinction. Currently I have almost finished Station Eleven (I really want a good score for English next year) and I have already read I am Malala before so I know the book well. My holiday homework plans are:
-Finish all unit 3/4 content for economics
-Finish a lot of content for further math (I did not do unit 1/2 of that subject so I know I am disadvantaged), coming from a former methods student I can clearly say that further math and methods don't have any overlap.
-Finish biology homework and go ahead if I can
-Chemistry is so far probably one of my worst subjects, I am barely passing this year so I really need a tutor in this subject and to start working my ass off over the holidays.
Exam update for my unit 1/2 subject:
English went well, chemistry was a disaster (scored pretty shit), methods (dropping it and failed the exam), economics I am so disappointed as I scored in the 70's which is pretty low compared to my previous scores I aim for a 90 or above and biology is not out yet. Well, thanks for reading and I will see you guys again soon.

Alright quick update:
I am procrastinating so hard and I am currently reading my year 12 text. I know for certain that I am improving in terms of my study habits, I know that I am going to get through year 12. Also some people in my class scored 100% of their test so that means it might be difficult for me to be ranked 1 next year (crossing my fingers that I can beat them).

Well the holidays started, now I am about to finish off my English text station eleven. My plan today is also to begin doing work for my other subjects (I got a lot of holiday homework).
Chemistry-A booklet to do and gotta catch up on content I did not learn properly in year 11.
Economics-Chapter 7 in the CPAP book and because I am motivated I plan to finish off the whole content this holiday and go through practice exams.
English-Finish all my text and watch the film in order to prepare for year 12.
Biology-Gotta watch 2 chapters worth of content on edrolo over the holidays.
Further math-Well the work for this subject is huge, I gotta do 3 chapters over the holidays plus watch edrolo videos. Since I did not do unit 1/2 it might be harder to understand the content.

Great to see you are using holidays wisely - please do remember to take some time out for yourself as well during the period. Really important. It's probably the last time you'll get a chance to relax properly, Year 12 is a long year.
