    Not feeling stressed?

    Ok so I've finished pretty much all my exams for this term and my marks are actually average which isn't too good. I go to a low 30 ranked school.

    But one of the things I've noticed is that everyone in my school, especially the smarter guys complain about stress while I don't feel stressed at all.

    Is this something to be worried about? Because I feel like stress propels other people into studying harder.

    It really depends on what your long term goals are. Why are you getting an ATAR? What degree do you want to get into? What university do you want to get into? Are you worried about people/family looking down on you?

    Competitiveness is a significant factor in stress. Some people feel the need to be the best they can be, and lower marks indicate a failure of that.

    Re: Not feeling stressed?

    Smarter people tend to stress more than others because they put too much pressure on themselves which in the long run, benefits them. You'll come across people that overdo their expression of stress just to put others off.

    I also didn't feel stressed throughout the HSC year, even though I didn't ace it, I just wasn't stressed. Because I had already planned everything out and I knew if I followed it I couldn't go wrong. It's good that you're not stressing but don't let it reach the point where you're overconfident with yourself.

    You don't have to be stressing to do good. Everyone just one up each other's stress to self pity.

    So will you achieve that with your average marks? How average are they?

    It's a good sign to see that you don't feel like stressed out for studies. That means whatever you study or learn you like it and love to learn in that way. but if you wish to score higher I would like to suggest go for planned studies and prepare a timetable for yourself.

    Ok so my School rank is around the Mid 30s.

    Advanced English: 45/169
    2U Maths: 24/110
    3U Maths: 39/79
    Economics: 14/40
    Physics: 40/77
    Business Studies 4/80

    I don't think my ranks so far would get me a 97+? What atar do you think I'll get if I continue to get these kind of ranks?

    With your ranks, probably a 93-94. But if you improve on physics (which I'm sure you already know you do), then you'll achieve your goal.

    thanks for the advice. our school has 2 pracs for our first 2 assessments for physics and i'm pretty bad at pracs. the next assessment is the half-yearlies and i think i'm a lot better at theory
