Around 46,000 students did their English exam today, me being one of them. The English exam sucks; I'm so bad at writing essays :( . It was alright, but I screwed up a bit of it. Basically, we have to write four essays — Two text response essays (essays based on texts we read in class), a language analysis piece (analyse the ways language is used in some articles), and a persuasive/opinionative piece. I spent too long on the analysis and persuasive pieces (as these are what I'm good at). I completed one of the text response essays and then noticed I only had like 25 minutes or so to do the last one. So it was horribly rushed and probably quite incoherent :P
So yeah, I'm soooo glad that exam is now over; it was the one exam I was really dreading. The exams I have left are:
So yeah, after that, No more school! On to University next year. I'm hoping that I get an ENTER score above 87, that way I'll get into Computer Science at Melbourne University :)
Edit: Some people were asking about the title of this post. It was referring to my MSN Messenger display name, which I had set to "It's Survivor: English Exam Edition. 46000 students, 4 hours, 3 essays. Who will survive?" for a while :D
Well, my mid-year exams are now all done. I think that exams are the stupidest thing ever... Whoever invented them should be shot... in the foot :P
...erm... Yeah, anyway..... For our maths exams (Specialist Maths, and Maths Methods), we have a 2-hour exam where we can use a calculator, and a 1-hour calculator-free exam.
These are the exams I did:
English - Bah, the English exam was stupid. We needed to write three essays in two hours! Having said that, I got a B on that exam (and I thought I was going to fail it :P)
Physics - Physics was alright (I quite like Physics). The exam was actually just questions that were cut and pasted from various revision books! I got an A+ on this exam.
Specialist Maths - This was hard, it involved maths stuff such as partial fractions, Circle theorems, and other stuff. If there's one maths area I hate, it's circle theorems! Having said that, I got an A+ on this exam
Maths Methods - This was easy! Maths Methods is incredibly easy compared to Specialist Maths. I got 97% in the calculator-active test (the highest in the class). This involved stuff like quadratics, cubics, quartics, solving equasions, etc, etc. The overall mark was an A+
Chemistry - This was the one exam I was dreading (I'm not really that good at chemistry). Nevertheless, I got a B on this exam (which I'm quite happy with)
Yeah... That's all my exams...
In other news, someone recently spammed the CWH Networks forum:
It took me the whole of 2 minutes to clean all that up. Seriously, when will these spammers learn? Geez! :D
