if ur not src, can u lie for scholarship application or do they want evidence, lol
coz no one has answered my question yet!
This thread is 120% amazeballs.
I often mention that yr 11 was my worst year academically, and yr 12 my best which is true. See part of was that I freaked a little about the rise in competition once people started working. There were also other new factors cropping up (RE: a very toxic friendship and a very sick relative) but I had to deal with these same factors to a point in yr 12 as well, but I'd developed a better outlook for it from the yr 11 experience.
So honestly, be constructive not critical to yourself. Focus on yourself rather than on others. Kindest thing you can do to yourself going into snr schooling imho. And stick to your gut on subjects. Basically everything RR has put so lovely and eloquently.

*Sports coaching at a disabilities school
*14 hrs of dance, did my RAD Adv 1
*Eisteddfods/other dance comps
*Volunteering with younger students at dancing
*Went to Vietnam/Cambodia with school
*Simpson Essay contest (though that was tech at end of yr 10, but awards were in yr 11)
*Prefect from Tm4
Tbh, someone in my year at school lied about something for something once (not a schol but something else important) so then it would have looked awks as hell when I inadvertently killed their lying game :P

- Stay organised
- prioritize your work
- keep a diary with your HW, assessments, exams etc.
- start your assignments as soon as you get them
- don't leave things to the last minute or put them off
- set aside time to make study notes
- ask for help from peers, teachers
- don't work too many hours (+8 hrs)
- talk to someone if you're becoming overwhelmed
- keep a level head
Remember year 11 isn't 'is all, end all'... Work yourselves up for year 12

lol I doubt my school has a event planning committee xD Last time for the src round, we didn't even need to have speeches at the year meeting, because there were so few people trying out for src a.k.a no one except the current src tried out
Were the graphic design and web manager roles for your friend's public speaking competition just something you volunteered or was it more a paid job? Come to think of it, does EC include jobs? as in paid jobs?
Touch footie and badminton wise - out of school or in school? Thanks<3
- SMH young writers?
nah, we didn't have speeches for src either. It's all self-nominated and I guess to a particular extent, its a popularity vote, but in past years, a majority of people who got SRC were fit for the position, so it's a conscious vote too :P (not just a popularity one!)
nah, all the leadership stuff and group projects are all volunteered roles haha :P and I don't think paid jobs are categorised the same as EC's, just list them separately, in conjunction with the activities you already participate in.
touch footy - in school
badminton - outside of school

Thanks so much for this - I've just started yr 11 and it's taking a while to realise the difference between yr 10 and yr 11.
going in to year 11? Start making notes for year 12.
Bump! Great advice!
I'm going into year 11 this year as well....Should I start making notes for year 12 sciences as well? My tutor says its not really necessary for physics but for chemistry it might be a good idea.
