    Wink HSC Progress Log 2017

    Thought the user 'Rathin' had a good idea with this! Making this to track my progress for fun!
    Didnt check my rank for most of assessment 1 (last year term 4)
    Update: only have my marks back not ranks yet but i will edit in overall ranks when i get my half yearly report
    Update 2: I got my ranks and a few things have changed regarding my goal courses

    Advanced English
    HSC Aim: 85

    Assessment 1 [Module C] (20% Weighting): 80%
    Comment on Progress: a big step up from year 11 that's for sure! (was at the bottom 20 ranks out of 150 people cohort)

    Assessment 2 [Paper 1] (25% Weighting): 82%
    Comment on Progress: i am satisfied with this as i am definitely on track for my goal!

    Overall Rank: 61/160
    HSC MARK ACHIEVED:

    Legal Studies
    HSC Aim: 85

    Assessment 1 (20% Weighting): 80%
    Comment on Progress: somehow managed to cram this last minute... so i ended up losing most of my marks on the multiple choice....

    Half Yearlies (20% Weighting): 92%
    Comment on Progress: Absolutely smashed this! With this i am on track to get a band 6 and surpass my goals!

    Overall Rank: 10/40
    HSC MARK ACHIEVED:

    Modern History
    HSC Aim: 85

    Assessment 1 (20% Weighting): 76%
    Comment on Progress: This actually was really disappointing.. i knew all the content and got 100% in multiple choice but my writing style failed me.

    Half Yearlies (20%? Weighting): 82%
    Comment on Progress: alright so this is probably my worst subject (possibly neglect it quite a bit) but at least it's better than last term..always improving! And i am fairly sure this is still in the mid band 5 range for my school so i'm on track

    Overall Rank: 22/38
    HSC MARK ACHIEVED:

    Advanced Mathematics
    HSC Aim: 95

    Assessment 1 (20% Weighting): 99% Rank 2/150
    Comment on Progress: Super happy with this considering i only got high 80s in year 11

    Half Yearlies (20%? Weighting): 86%
    Comment on Progress: alright so i kind of stuffed this up compared to last test.. BUT i have improved quite a lot in my other subjects! i cannot be not too annoyed.. i will have to pick up my game to get that 95 final subject mark!

    Overall Rank: 14/127
    HSC MARK ACHIEVED:

    Mathematics Extension 1
    HSC Aim: 90

    Assessment 1 (20% Weighting): 83% Rank 38/90
    Comment on Progress: made some really silly mistakes in this test... but im fairly satisfied as i am maintaining around the same rank as year 11. Hoping to push into top 30s

    Half Yearlies (20%? Weighting): 88%
    Comment on Progress: funny how i got more in extension than advanced.. anyways i am very happy with this i am well within the E4 range in my school with this mark!

    Overall Rank: 22/87
    HSC MARK ACHIEVED:

    Society and Culture
    HSC Aim: 93

    Assessment 1 (20% Weighting): 95%
    Comment on Progress: This subject along with maths is kind of a relief to do. Glad i chose it!

    Half Yearlies (20%? Weighting): 88%
    Comment on Progress: It's a step down from my assessment 1 but i am still fairly satisfied. i am effectively around the same rank still and i am on track to get at least a band 6!

    Overall Rank: 6/22
    HSC MARK ACHIEVED:

    School Ranking: Rank 32 (2016)

    ATAR AIM/Top 5 Preferences in order:
    95 (USyd Commerce)
    80 (USyd B.Science/B. Advanced Studies)
    ------------------ i will likely only choose one of the two above but i have some other stuff i may think of doing below
    90 (USyd Economics)
    91.5 (UNSW Commerce counting 5 bonus points)
    90 (Usyd Engineering)

    Note: i am VERY set on USYD! i have a lot of friends and support over there!

    Its interesting how you are kinda happy with your marks or atleast a little bit satisfied. For me even if I do good I am never satisfied. Dunno if this is a bad thing or a good thing.

    I 100% think that's a good thing to never be satisfied if it means more motivation and 'hunger' to do even better

    The reason i'm kinda happy is mostly to do with how my marks project into the Atar i want! Whilst i aim for 95 atar (for B Commerce), i am very confident in myself in at least getting 90 atar (for B Economics). And this is without factoring in EAS! If my aim was to do law or actuary or something id be definitely less satisfied.

    Good luck! Looks like you're reaching your goal step by step!

    You just want to do a straight Commerce? No double degrees?

    Not related to the OP post but do you guys feel that economics requires a lot of memorising but not rote learning as per say. I'm honestly very unsure about economics because I expect it to all link up quite easily and for the content to be easy for me to memorise but is it like chemistry or business where memorisation is vital for some parts i.e. roles of chemists, fermentation, influences...

    Thanks man Sorry for intruding progress log but yeh I just had a thought.

    Good luck btw You look like you're very much on track :0 WAYYY better than me ^^)
