    Teachers and their reactioons to HSC/UAI

    Hi all.
    I'm just wondering if any of you had BBQs or Morning Teas to go to on Wednesday, like we did so that teachers can find out our UAIs.

    By the way, if there was, how did your teachers react to your results?

    Re: Teachers and their reactioons to HSC/UAI

    We didn't have a morning tea, but phones were ringing around. All the teachers I spoke to were absolutely stoked - our little rural independent school had its best year ever, with at least 7 guys out of 23 getting UAI 90+, and nearly 20% band 6's. It's been a very happy few days.

    We didn't have BBQ's or anything, but I went into school the day UAI's came out. My teachers were going on about how proud they were of me for finishing and how great I went.... when I actually didn't do well at all haha

    Nope no BBQs or any other UAI gauging exercises from my school to my knowledge.

    However I can assume like me my teachers would be quite pleased.

    Re: Teachers and their reactioons to HSC/UAI

    We didnt have anything like that, but i'm guessing the teachers at my school will be very pleased and proud.
    It's rare that our school gets a band 6 in english (our teacher has only seen two at our school) we got another.
    Our chem teacher said that when we get a band 6, its like we wont the lotto. We got two of them, so i guess we won the lotto twice =P
    And also, my friend got a 99 UAI, which i doubt has every happened at our school xD

    Unfortunately, the english and chem teachers (coorinators too) retired, so i wont get the opportunity to talk to them =(.

    Re: Teachers and their reactioons to HSC/UAI

    We had a BBQ on Wednesday yeah....

    All the teachers/principal came out and asked us how we went.

    My IPT/SDD teacher was absolutely ecstatic because he got 1st and 3rd in NSW for IPT!!

    And yeah, the principal wrote down all of the UAIs for boasting etc...

    We had a morning tea on the day the UAI's came out. I didn't go but my Year Co-ordiantor found out about my results and called me at home to ask what UAI have obtained. But apparently not that many people attended our UAI morning tea.

    Re: Teachers and their reactioons to HSC/UAI

    our teachers were stoked, 2006 has been the best year our school has seen in a while, i think. they were writing down our results and hugging us and being all excited and happy it was great.
    Ten thousand dollars at the drop of a hat, I'd give it all gladly, if our lives could be like that.

    Everyone in general at the high UAIs achieved by lots of people, and two state rankings and one all rounder.

    Re: Teachers and their reactioons to HSC/UAI

    I'm glad we never had a BBQ or anything like that because most of us are quite unhappy with our results. I was also glad that presentation day was not on the same day the HSC results were released because they were shocking, especially for chemistry (1 x band 6 this year compared to 17 last year WTF!!!!!!!!). Last year's Year 12s beat us in virtually every subject in the number of band 6s/E4s except for English and English Extension 2 where they were up a bit this year. The only state ranking we have was a girl who got 19th in Business Studies compared to last year where there were about 5 people hogging the state top 20 in Mathematics, one person got 2nd in the state for History Extension and 6th for Mathematics Extension 2, one person got 10th in Biology as well as other people topping the state in Mathematics 2 unit, (and externally through Khmer Continuers and Accounting)....
    Sure, the principal and teachers will try to make a positive out of our shocking results but deep inside I know they're probably a bit disappointed.

    Re: Teachers and their reactioons to HSC/UAI

    I didn't go to the uai morning but from what i heard they were pretty shocked at our results(in a bad way), although we got 3 state rankings just for extension 1 maths(inc urs truly) our performances other than maths ext2 were worse than last year-especially english, absolutely hopeless, like 9 band sixes? I know how trebla feels, sefton was a really good school when it came to maths and a few of the sciences-i guess our principals need a rethink or a reshuffle

    Same although we had more band 6s than last year (rise from 81 to 94) our highest UAI is 99.3 as opposed to 99.5 last year (but this may change awaiting on the second dux to inform us of her UAI ) And also only one all rounder as opposed to two last year and so far only 1 99.xx as we got 3 last year

    And also our rank dropped dramatically 13 places and will continue dropping (no hope for the current year 12s at our school )

    that's still quite good though, well done to whatever school you go to

    our school did heaps better in comparison to last year...last year's top uai was 94.55 (my uai! lol) - this year it was 99.6... and we got 3 all rounders (we usually dont get any, or just one) and our ranking went up by more than 150. next year's hsc class have pretty big shoes to fill, at least by my school's standards.

    Re: Teachers and their reactioons to HSC/UAI

    We had a morning tea, and someone came up with the fantastic idea of writing our UAI's on a label and sticking them to our shirts. It completely avoided any uncessary and akward conversations with teachers who were simply trying to find out and record your UAI.

    I believe the purpose for gathering this information is to see how many new desks they can get from the government next year.

    Yeh, I'm from Sefton....unfortunately. I think Bianca and Serena got 99s seeing how they're all rounders. I'm pissed off knowing that I could have been an all rounder and could have got 99 with a little bit extra seeing as I got 88s and 89s grrrrr....

    we had a uai bbq/brunch. teachers and principals were stoked with sydney boys' results - not only did we come 3rd by SMH, which is the highest we've been for like 6 years, we also got a 100 and 4 ppl with 99.95.

    You are much too competitive. If i remember from elsewhere you scored around a 98-99 uai which is quite tops i think It doesn't really matter if the school is disappointed, if you scored well enough to do your uni course (because that's what the uai is for, not too brag on the intranetz) then you should be happy to say the least.

    You're also very disparaging towards your own grade even if that was not your original intention. You're analysing your school's results across different years too deeply that i'd be worried frankly if i were you. Statistics don't mean crap, sure it's good to have school pride so you can say so-and-so school beat out joe blow high but when you get that cut over it, you should try to appreciate how you've done all you could (hopefully) to help promote your school's success.

    Oh and how did your school fare in history extension this year then? Even though my one canes the rest of the state in basically everything i look at my own results and see how i fared in terms of what i've put in, rather than shove the grade's awesome statistics which others have contributed to in the face of others. And i definitely wouldn't say "oh yeah sefton is pretty sh*t at life compared to its leetness at sucking cock".

    p.s. to sammy, kim, crazy russian girl and other coolcats from sefton you guys rock :wave:

    Re: Teachers and their reactioons to HSC/UAI

    we handed in a slip to our school (if we wanted to, but the school excepted us to really), with our student number and pin on it so they could get our UAI and use it for statistical purposes. to be honest i haven't been back to school since the 25th of november - the day i officially signed out. so i have no idea what my teachers thought. pretty good i spose.
