The biggest thing I hear constantly about advice for yr12 students is not to worry or let your end of year 12 marks define you. And if you don't get the mark you want, remember that there are ALWAYS other options! You don't have to go straight to uni straight after high school. TAFE exists and gives you an education as well, and in some fields can prepare you very well for your chosen career, by giving you lots of practical and hands on experience. 

 

We also have lots of resources over here at exam stress

 

We know this time can be super stressful, which is why we're going to have a chat about it next Monday October 22 at 7:30 pm AEDT 

(A friendly reminder that is is now Daylight Savings so those in WA, NT, SA, QLD please check out this link to check when GR starts if you are unsure Smiley Happy)

@Bee This GR is so important! 

With the HSC looming, it's a good time to get some perspective. 

I love the #thereislifeafter year 12 exams videos ... Malcolm Turnbull came up next in the playlist, great to see him involved. His use of the word chill was my fav Cat Very Happy

So, so important!

 

I remember it being impossible to truly imagine a life without school, and then one day I woke up and it just... happened.

 

Now I find myself sitting here like:

Time for the first question! (also hello @Jess1-RO!)

 

1. When you were in high school what did you want to do? Or if you still are in high school, what do you want to do?

I am not in high school anymore but when I was in Year 12 at High School I wanted to be an admin worker/receptionist or very specifically work in local government as a customer service officer (I did work experience in that area while I was in Year 12). But spoiler alert while I did work as a customer service officer in local government a few years after high school, I couldn't handle it at all (my anxiety wasn't coping at all), so I left after 6 months. 2 years of unemployment followed and I am currently studying Community Services at TAFE and I am LOVING it! So many people have told me it's perfect for me and they never could see me being a receptionist so it all worked out in the end Smiley Happy

When I was in high school, I wanted to study medicine and become a pediatrician. I always knew I wanted to help people and I thought that being a doctor was the way to achieve that. I now know there are so many different ways to achieve my goal of helping people. I never would have anticipated 5 years down the track that I would be working in mental health. Now I couldn't imagine working in any other field!
