Re: Getting Real: C-E-L-E-B-R-A-T-E good times come on!!

During the HSC period, all of my friends and I spent most of our time in the library. It was funny, because there was a lot of socialising and I'd met a lot of new people as well. So I guess the HSC wasn't that bad.

Re: Getting Real: C-E-L-E-B-R-A-T-E good times come on!!

Hmmm, well HSC (VCE for me) was actually quite a hard time for me, year 12 in particular. I was always a good student, and got good grades, but things all started happing at once, and my boyfriend got pretty sick, and I lost it Smiley Sad
I eventually got into the uni course I wanted though, so alls well Smiley Happy
Also congratulations Bee!!

haha nathan I can totally relate. Too often my grade were in trouble for being 'too social' in our free periods spent at the library!

 

I think the best thing about the HSC for me though was the day I got my grades I was stoked. It is such a good feeling when the grades compensate hard work.

Thanks LeaLea and Sophie, it has been a big rollercoast the last 2 years Smiley Happy I'm glad it's over though


2. If you did it this year or years ago, what did you most enjoy about the HSC?
I have just finished mine, and I think the most enjoyable were the pracs in Drama and the laughs that came of it, and the Science lessons with my teacher, we had the best times, including trying to hide from him one lesson Smiley Tongue

Re: Getting Real: C-E-L-E-B-R-A-T-E good times come on!!

Rhelna I think you highlighted an important point - that although uni is stressful there are ways to get to the place we aim to be. Sometimes we have to try a different approach or take the road less travelled (so to speak).

Hey guys.

1. What was the best thing about your schooling years?
I really loved my high school. It had really lovely values - I did a fair bit of volunteer work and we were always having special events on to raise money for different charities. So it really sparked my passion for giving back to the community.
I also adored the teachers at my high school - they were such genuine people who REALLY cared for you.
I didn't like my grade very much though. I went to an all-girls school. Girls can be very bitchy!!! I wouldn't have chosen to go anywhere else though as I think it did teach me some valuable lessons about how to get along with other people.

2. If you did it this year or years ago, what did you most enjoy about the HSC?
QLD doesn't have the HSC as such... It's quite different. I struggled a lot with my subjects in year 11 and 12. When I chose my subjects I instantly went for the "hardest" subjects because I kind of wanted to prove to everyone that I could do them. But that backfired massively. I did straight maths and science in year 11 and 12 (2 lots of maths, biology, chemistry, physics) + religion & english (which were compulsory). Funnily enough the subjects I chose were nicknamed the "suicidal 5" and I became suicidal during year 11 and 12! I guess I should have paid more attention to the rumours. Smiley Tongue
I didn't really know what I wanted to do though for subjects in year 11 and 12 and everyone was telling me how fantastic I was at maths and science (which I was and still am) but I kind of didn't realize there were other options available. So my grades weren't as great as I would have liked as I was too overwhelmed by the workload and dealing with severe depression and my parents breaking up (messy, messy, messy break up!) halfway through year 12 impacted on me a lot!

So I guess I didn't really answer your question - but honestly, think about your subject choices more in depthly than I did! Don't listen to what others tell you to do... Try something different!!

@Bee WOO!! CONGRATS DUDE!!! Smiley Very Happy

 

If you did it this year or years ago, what did you most enjoy about the HSC?

I want to say my art major work, but at the time it was probably the most stressful and rage inducing thing I have ever encountered. So I'm gonna stick with music performance exam (+ everything working up to that) annnnnnnnnnd the kinda unrelated pracs in biology Smiley Tongue

Re: Getting Real: C-E-L-E-B-R-A-T-E good times come on!!

Yes, if there's a will, there's a way, and there are plenty of ways Smiley Happy

I didn't do the HSC, we have the OP here in QLD. I honestly can't really think of anything I enjoyed about it, it stressed me out a lot. Although we don't have to do a heap of final exams for the OP like the HSC, only two days of QCS, which is a positive.
