These are also many of the reasons a lot of people (and maybe even our finest teachers) left the school beforehand, not just to higher selective schools, but also to lower ranked public non-selective schools. Also, most of my peers do share a level of hatred of the school, so I'm not the only one.

    Actually I kinda opted for a course with a cut-off of 98.8 and before the results were released I thought this would be easily accessible since I got an estimate of 99. So basically I aimed quite high and worked pretty damn hard for it. As soon as the results were released I was disappointed as I fell short of my minimum expectations by a small margin and this pissed me off a lot....In fact most people I asked were disappointed with their results and quite a number have to rely on EAS to get into the course of their choice.

    Re: Teachers and their reactioons to HSC/UAI

    Well, we have one coming up in February... teachers thought it'd be amusing to find out about our uni offers along the way, too. Though I have a feeling that there'll be a few absentees... I know quite a few people who are disappointed and probably can't get into uni with their UAIs.
    As for me, all good, all good!

    I will be oversea when our school holds its "Afternoon Tea". I might just write a thank you letter to my teachers. Don't know what their reactions would be because I don't know what they were expecting from me LOL.

    omg, i got a letter yesterday from the "relieving principal" (our real one is away for some reason) congratulating me on the band sixes i got. i didnt know our school did that for us lol. it's such a nice letter too.
    Ten thousand dollars at the drop of a hat, I'd give it all gladly, if our lives could be like that.

    Re: Teachers and their reactioons to HSC/UAI

    Yea all our teachers were so proud of our cohort, we're like the best group that has gone through in recent yrs, esp with our school ranking too!!

    We got a morning tea held for us on the day the UAI's were released and i think theyll call a few of us to come in next yr to talk to the upcoming yr 12's...

    Re: Teachers and their reactioons to HSC/UAI

    Our teachers haven't contacted us post HSC at all.

    They were probably really disappointed and calling us the underacheiving grade (like they have all 2006 and 2005) though.

    My Japanese teacher was very happy I hit a band 4, after struggling with 50s and 60s all year.

    Didn't speak to my other teachers.

    Re: Teachers and their reactioons to HSC/UAI

    i have a question which might be real dumb but is there any way that the school can find out what uai someone got even if they didn't ask the person? like do they receive a list of who got over 90 or something like that? or is the only way the school ever finds out is if the person tells them?

    The school never receives a list - the student tells them.
