Don't sweat those kinds of things, it's a piece of paper & ink. I have learnt there will always be another opportunity in life to do the course of your dreams. There's always a back door. You just need to find that back door.

Also, Jeff looks old...

This pretty much. Did you get into your desired course?

Yeeeh USYD Bachelor of Edu / Bachelor of Science which only required 82, so im good :)
Thanks guyss :)
Then I wouldnt worry about it too much - an ATAR is only useful to get you into your desired degree. Beyond that, it is fairly useless. That being said, if you have put in some work throughout the year and missed your goal then it can be very disappointing. Similarly, if you missed your goal because you didnt put in the work then that can also be disappointing. So, it's normal to be upset when goals arent achieved, but in the long term, the ATAR doesnt really amount to much, especially if you have made your desired course.

atar is useful for degree AND tutoring opportunities if you want that*

Hehe...my goal was also 90 and I got 88.75. Don't worry about it. As long as you get into your course that's all that matters. 88 is still an amazing achievement....youre in the top 12% of NSW!
