    The Journal of a HSC student: BOSuser1

    I'm doing it.

    All my frustration, stress, lack of motivation and sleep deprivation will be condensed into the odd journal entry.

    I'm going into the 2017 Prelim year with:

    - 3U English
    - 3U Maths
    - Music 2
    - Physics
    - Legal Studies
    - Financial Services - Accounts Administration III (It counts)

    and am expecting to drop: Physics

    and pick up: MX2, EX2 & Music Extension (Maybe?)

    Who knows though.

    I have an ATAR goal of: 97+

    And I'm really pushing it by wishing for an all-rounder.

    If this does not work out, I'll become a NEET hobo.

    So for society's sake, please pray it turns out.

    Goal University Degree: Combined Bachelor of Law/Science (major in Mathematics) (Macquarie Uni)

    I'll try include study tips, what motivated me and how I kept sane (hopefully) - through the sleepless nights and disappointment.

    So yeah, enjoy.





    Oh, and one other thing...





    Fight me Kolmias.

    Re: The Journal of a HSC student: BOSuser1

    Update: As an orientation to year 11 progress report:

    I have a 2U maths accelerated exam on all topics covered (inc. Exponentials and Trig Functions) next Friday. I get the next 3 days off (Year 11 camp) to study.

    So far I've received assessment notifications for:

    EE1 - 1200 word creative writing task on post colonialism and a 2 minute reflection speech
    Physics - Data Analysis Exam - analysing graphs and problems on motion
    Music - Performance Term 2 (No task term 1!!!!) - Hopefully Bach's Prelude & Fugue in C Minor
    MX1 - Algebra, Further Inequalities & Permutations and Combinations exam
    Legal Studies - Short answer questions + extended response (exam) on Introduction to the Legal System
    English Advanced - Short Answer analysis questions (HSC style) + AOS Challenge Essay on 'As You Like It' exam
    Financial Services (Online) - Assessment tasks for units as I go through

    I also started PHL 137 with Macquarie Uni (GAT program) and working at my own pace online is so much better than at school imo.

    Overall, my organisation ways and skills have a long way to go and my note-taking method is still being decided on, although in HSC year I will definitely resort to taking notes that are well formatted in digital form - SHOUTOUT to dan for his note templates.

    Getting ahead of everything and not leaving to the last minute will definitely be one of my priorities to work on.

    Hopefully, as I find the optimal way to study and techniques for me, I'll be able to share them

    Just try and think about doing both EE2 and MX2. Personally MX2 takes up like 30-40% of my time because it's very hard compared to other subjects but then EE2 you have to do heaps of research, journalling, as well as write your whole major work and edit it.

    Then you've got your other subjects which are also heavy in workload.

    Wow I just got so much out of 2 standard sized posts. Thanks guys! Yeah, my EE2 and MX2 will be my priorities and it's good to know in advanced that they will probably be my heaviest. I'm definitely dropping Physics with that in mind...

    I'm not sure what you mean but if you're saying 4u shouldn't be that hard - the 4U content is much different to 2U and the questions involve a lot more thinking.

    Or maybe it's because we only have like 1 hour 40 worth of lessons a week which isn't even enough to learn one of (arguably the most) the hardest subjects of the HSC so we basically self learn half of it at home from videos

    For the Macq Uni Advanced Science, you can major in mathematics, which I'm hoping to do. With the GAT program I'm doing, if I get a HD in the critical thinking unit, I have the chance of getting early entry into Advanced Science at Macq Uni and starting a unit next year. Can't confirm I'm gonna get the HD though
