    Re: 2019ers Chit-Chat Thread

    How was everyone's first day back into year 12?

    We just went through preliminary exams and an outline of what we're doing in term 4. Haven't got my marks for English and math though ;w; Will most likely start the HSC content tomorrow.

    We start HSC content on Thursday, as the next three days consist of transitioning to year 12 and how to study etc etc.

    I don't think I have ever found the "how to study" sessions helpful.

    Yea, I think it's to motivate students whom don't currently take the HSC seriously // scare them a bit.

    Re: 2019ers Chit-Chat Thread

    Just going to requote my post from the preliminary thread. I feel this is very important to remember especially considering there will be times where we feel down or demoralised during year 12!

    Guys, if you ever feel hopeless or disheartened from your marks/ranks, don't give up!

    My physics rank in semester 1: Bottom 10
    Final ranking: Top 10 (rank #9)

    I originally felt so discouraged after seeing my semester one ranking and felt tempted to drop. But after staying and putting extra effort, I climbed the rankings of my cohort~
    It's definitely possible to improve as long as you work harder (you obviously have to put in the effort). But just know that there is hope to turn the tables around.

    So never give up!!! We all got this !

    Balancing chemical equations
    Understanding and applyingEnthalpy, entropy, gibbs energy formulas
    Understanding and applying Formulas involving number of moles (n) and concentration (e.g. dilution - c1v1 = c2v2), limiting reagent
    Oxidation and reduction, constructing half equations
    General chemistry formulae - e.g. synthesis, decomposition, combustion, precipitation, acid with base rxn, acid with carbonate (e.g. A + B will give you what)
    General periodic table trends and why (this will help you with your foundation, esp with module 7)
    Models of the structure of different metals and compounds --> e.g. ionic compound, covalent molecular, covalent network, metallic structure
    collision theory and rate of reaction and their relationship
    exothermic and endothermic reactions
    IUPAC naming


    I'm sure i missed some. However, those listed above you should know moving into Year 12. I will make an official list soon.

    Feel free to DM me if you have any questions <3
