Ahhh everyone keeps counting down days til graduation, hsc, formal and saying final (blank) ever. As much as I want high school to be over, I'm also not prepared for all of this :c
I want High School to end and not end at the same time, after High School ends you will never get the feeling of community anymore, you can't come and goof around with your friends everyday, however on the plus side you won't have to see the jerks ever again. Oh well, time must do its thing :(

It's gonna be a grind, I (and a lot of other ppl prob) have trials weeks 5-7. I think that you're not supposed to be prepared for trials, it should give you an idea of how much work you need to do to do well or better than you did in trials, trials are basically the HSC just with less time to prep.

Legit same, English especially, how is one suppose to do a decent essay in 40 minutes??? Only way I can think of is just to have everything prememorized

Legit same, not sure how it is for you guys we have 50% weighting trials since our term 2 assessments got interrupted by covid. English especially, how is one suppose to do a decent essay in 40 minutes??? I'd feel so much better if it were weighted less or not at all.
Um 50%. Is it actually. I was never told this ffs. :confused: :rolleyes:

Really? I feel totally opposite, I love my friends and most of my classes, but I can't wait to just get out of here and into uni or whatever. I just feel like I've been here so long there isn't much left for me.

Probably not for you guys but online learning hit us right as we were doing half yearlies and everyone complained about cheating in online tests so they made them unweighted and moved the weighting to trials

You had online tests. Wth
Yeah because for subjects like maths it wasn't practical to set another investigation task so we did a timed google classroom task (Test posted at 9:00, submission time at 10:10, 1 hour exam with 10 minutes for printing and reading). Everyone obviously hated that though so we all emailed the school and they decided to make it unweighted and redistributed weighting to other tasks. We were all operating under the assumption that all of T2 would be online, since this was pretty early on.

EDIT: I rechecked the weightings, we had an investigation in T1 for 20%, half yearly and our T2 task got combined into a 35% task, and trials was reweighted to 45% so not 50% like I thought

The people in my year who were doing Maths actually had to go to school and sit there exam ahah.
That is a massive rip, my school district was pretty much a covid hotspot at the time so not really an option haha. Although I think our school actually concidered "socially distanced testing" but it didn't work out since there weren't enough teachers willing to come in and supervise

How would that even work though lol ah because you have to use medical equipment.
I think the idea was that you'd have 10-15 people per classroom and a teacher in each to supervise with all the usual procedures (hand sanitizing, wiping down desks, etc) but obviously that was way too bothersome and you'd need two weeks notice since it's an HSC task so it ultimately all fell apart

EDIT: For reference we have about 80 ppl doing adv maths so you'd need 8 classrooms and teachers for one test
