^ yeah can't get over how perceptive that is.If you noticed at school and with your friends, those who were humble, achieved the highest results and those who expected state ranks before they even sat the exam, performed at a far lower level. Have foresight but don't try to predict the unpredictable.
God, I can't even comprehend the thought of being disappointed with a 94.55 atar...Final atar was 94.55, everyone in my family, friends and all is like YEAAA YOU DID SO GOOD !!! DD
In my mind im like YEAAA NO FUCK YOU, I DONT WANT TO TALK.
I'm confused cause UMELB doesn't give early offers at this time of the year and they don't have adv sci, only science.nah FUCK IT I got into adv sci melbourne which was my 2nd course preference. All fucking good, screw the board of studies im done with them.
I wasn't being snarky, I just know what courses/diplomas are offered and called at UMELB. The course is just called Bachelor of Science there, Monash is the Vic Uni uses the course name he mentioned. If he said med sci, I would have been like it's called biomed at UMELB etc. Also I brought up the offer time because I wanted to make sure he had applied to the ACCESS he is likely entitled to, though he is above the typical clearly in, just for extra security, why not.Just because UMelb does not offer "Advanced Science" does not mean their Science is not as advanced as so-called Advanced Science at Sydney U. Ages ago there was no such thing as Advanced Science. Does not mean Adv Sc is advanced. Advanced in relation to Non-advanced as you would compare 3U maths vs 2U maths.
The point is that the name ADV isn't trying to imply 'the others are dumb' but that this one has advanced courses as an essential part of the degree...I was not picking on your post at all. I just wanted to point out that "Advanced Science" is a misnomer. That a "Bachelor of Science" from MelbU is just as good, if not better than a "Bachelor of Advanced Science" from SydU. I think this designation (Adv Sc) came about because, now there is now a need to distinguish it from a dumbed down version of the course.
You were clearly never taught how to write Science responses before. :/Chemistry: 18/20 MCQ, in long response wrote very detailed and structured stuff for everything, checked all calculations and messed up a bit in TWO calcs, like 4 or 5 marks at most. I could not fathom getting anything less than 90, would expect at the very least 93 or 94. I got 86, exam and assessment. HOW?????????????? Checked ALL CALCS with BoS, EVERYTHING was right except for those two questions were couple of numbers messed up.
I mean I cant have seriously been THAT fucking off the mark in long response, jesus christ...
Physics: Had no issues whatsoever in long response, I knew everything there was to know and wrote concise, to the point and used all appropriate terminology. Calculations I messed up numbers (Halved 550 for 225 lol) in THREE Q's, not more than 6 marks or something. And I get a FUCKING 83 exam and assessment.
Well I thought I knew everything few weeks before, so I played skyrim and jrpg's most of time but yea I still think I knew things thoroughly. Anyway no I had no tutor for anything, I felt I was capable enough on my own.Holy fuck you did worse than me!
I literally just watched TV between exams
I literally watched the first two seasons of 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom before Maths and Bio and SOR exams
I literally spent an hour of the MX2 exam having a legit anxiety attack and didn't fill in half the paper and got the same mark as you
Wot wrong you?
And why would you draw more attention to yourself by making a thread?? ~~~
You were clearly never taught how to write Science responses before. :/
Did you have a tutor?
Btw, did you go to Reddam?
So you don't live in GWS?
So you can't get into UWS Med?
What are you gonna do?
Okay.But like, with the x amount of effort I put in, I could have sworn it was good enough for 98 ATAR.
In school I was never surprised like this, with such ridiculously harsh marking.
MX2 is not even the marking, just, dont know what....
How can I get 79 if I got the solutions for 66 marks 100% according to carrot?!?!?!?
My maths teacher said throughout yr 12 if I dont make my work neater the markers will take off marks cos they hate messy work. Fuck them! If I get the answer I get the mark!!!
Is that true?? Do they remove marks for messiness?
Yeah, I saw this coming too because the same thing happened to me back in the day.I could see this coming from a long time ago - you allowed all this IQ crap to go to your head and ultimately, you greatly overestimated your ability.
Probs ~44/100 tbhBtw, your 70/100 in MX2. that got you a 79.
I got a 79 after probably getting 50/100.
As I said before the same thing happened to me.Just wanted 97-98 from that moment tbh. I worked appropriately.
staying on topic, from my half yearlies and trials all my teachers expected low B6 for everything bar english. Today at school chem and phys teachers were like "m8 wtf happened..."
~95 these days actually.PS. Haya. MX2 shouldn't be used as excuse. A 79 scales to a 98 or something similar.
This is very good advice.My advice:
*To help put it to bed, get the marks recheck for your peace of mind. Don't obsess on it, change is extremely unlikely.
*Secondly, your ATAR gives you a lot of options with uni. From this disappointment, if you look back constructively it could be a big turning point and approach things better in the future. I'd say a lot of the regret is tied to hyping yourself up-which can place undue pressure on yourself and make a fall more painful.
*Thirdly, HS performance is in no way indicative of the future or life or success or money or whatevs. So don't beat yourself up heavily over some numbers and a decimal point.
Don’t patronise him, mang.94.55 is still a very good ATAR, what course do you want to do in uni?
Wait, I didn’t know you couldn’t get in as a school leaver ~~~Wanted acting at NIDA, tho cant get in as school leaver so will audition next year for it.
Till then, will either have gap year to take care of dad (severe cancer) or go to melbourne uni for biomedicine or advanced science.
^in all seriousness
why would you go to melbs for a degree you could get in sydney where you could be closer/better able to visit your severely sick father
This never happens.That is ridiculous! what if there was intelligent kid who knew everything but had fine motor development impaired (I had this as young kid actually, but got thru it via lots of training) and was very messy? What if he deserved to be no 1 in state but got 70 cos markers didnt read his solutions>?
Melbourne isn’t much better.Because sydney is smelly, dirty, polluted and just gross. Cant stand it. And Idk how to respond about dad.
It’s pretty hard… been working on it for 4ish years and my writing is still barely legibleHow is it unfair? Youve been told from the very start that markers dont like messy handwriting.. its really not that hard to improve your handwriting
you probs should’ve improved regardless :/Well asianese my writing is pretty damn messy, hsc marker teacher warned me I'd lose marks if I don't get neater, but didn't believe a marker would do that
Honey… No… :/Well the biology criteria analed me, coz I thought I could near SR.
*note, hoping to get my mark revised to a 92, there appears to be an error, getting it rechecked.
You really should’ve done past papers betterI felt working through paper was waste of time, so I went thru chem and phys papers just visualising what I would do in each question step by step, and when I was done I'd check whether what I had in my mind matched somewhat with the sample answers. Maths papers I just did Q4-7 MX1 and for MX2 I did 2006-2012 whole thing.
I felt I understood marking criteria, although I never went through examiner notes and marking criteria for each exam on BoS site, as teacher told me to, I thuoght the past paper booklets would suffice in their sample answers.
Maybe I did misunderstand most of the long response questions, and gave completely the wrong stuff. Hm.
I find difficult to understand how one can misinterpret maths marking criteria, yet perhaps somehow I managed to do so. I would say more likely than that though is my crazy scribbling all over the place.
Reading Realise's post on off estimates I am just so aggravated and pissed off they disregarded my answers for some maths Q's, because I know more certainly than my own name I didn't get as low as I did.
If you have money then get your own debit cardafaik only payment option is credit card (Which I dont have) and mum is super pissed off at me for getting the marks I did
(Well she said "Still a good atar but if u didnt fuck around on video games you would have gotten much higher" lol)
and Im scared I'll get a barrage of criticism and shouting if I mention the tiniest thing related to rechecking marks or anything, she is on reaaally tight fuse.
So at this stage idk what im gonna do, cant approach mum about getting credit card details....
defernah FUCK IT I got into adv sci melbourne which was my 2nd course preference. All fucking good, screw the board of studies im done with them.
It’s a very real thing to happen.God, I can't even comprehend the thought of being disappointed with a 94.55 atar...
hahahahahah fucking hell i've never felt so gratified than right now, reading this thread
thank you bos
WHAT WOULD MENSA THINK caps
was haya the one who had the daily journal logging his journey to 99.95 or was that another autist
Awfulyou shouldn't have spent so much time focussing on the voice acting
I don't think you can really blame your school thoughWell I thought I knew everything few weeks before, so I played skyrim and jrpg's most of time but yea I still think I knew things thoroughly. Anyway no I had no tutor for anything, I felt I was capable enough on my own.
You say wot wrong me... Idk tbh. Maybe my school science teachers were all the while teaching me completely wrong long response techniques haha. Idc. Maths m8 I've emphasized many times throughout the thread, I calculated with friend our marks according to carroysticks, he got 13 more marks when I very clearly had more of the paper covered than him, my maths teacher told me I have horrific scribble for working, so only logical conclusion for the missing marks is my writing quality. Blah.
And I hate med ffs, I pray to god I get into acting school next year during science course at melb, so i don't have to Fuck around in a career I despise
not trueLol you two guys thinking your high IQ will get your anywhere in the HSC. Newsflash the HSC is like 90% work/effort and 10% intelligence.
That's true but I still stand by saying that it's mostly effort that will get you the atar you are aiming for. The point I am making is quite evident in the failure of both the OP and riproot to achieve their desired atarnot true
higher intelligence > absorb content quicker and have a complete understanding > study less
everyone has seen those kids no offence who study 6 hours a day but still end up getting 70s
