On Monday, I had my English Unit 1 exam. It went pretty well, I think, 6 pages of Language Analysis. It was a pretty interesting issue, actually, and the author of the article was impeccably sarcastic and cynical. Today, I had a Chemistry exam, which was pretty easy, actually… And it’s out of a possible 84 marks, which means you can lose up to 7 marks and still receive and ‘Outstanding’ grade.
Also today was part two of the Mathematical Methods Unit 3&4 application task. It was probably the easiest application task I’ve ever done, and as far as I could tell, there were no mistakes in it at all. I thought it was a very well written task, so I thank the teacher(s) who created it.
Hopefully I’ll have my marks for all of the SACs and exams that I’ve done some time soon. Onwards to GMA tomorrow.
That’s all for now. More blogging to come.Comments: none yet | Filed under: school | Tagged: chemistry, english, exams, maths methods

So tomorrow will mark the start of my Unit 1 exams…
The first one is English, and luckily the only exam I have on Monday. Hopefully I’ll be able to think of things to write for it. My second exam takes place on Wednesday, and is Chemistry, and I think I’m reasonably prepared for that. Also on Wednesday is Application Task Part 2 for Mathematical Methods 3&4. That, I’m a little more worried about, since last year’s one was so easy, they’ll probably make it really hard (or write it really badly, there’s hardly any difference to me).
On Thursday I have both exams for General Maths Advanced; three hours of examination… That should go okay I guess, I didn’t have a problem with the past two years’ exams. Also on Thursday is the Victorian School Music Festival, which means I’ll be out at Federation Square from 6:30pm and won’t be back until around 11:15pm. That doesn’t leave much time to sleep before my Physics exam 8:30am on Friday… Oh well, Physics is easy anyway.
The following Monday, I have an IT exam… I assume that I know everything that I need to for that exam, but I’ll have to brush up on my excel formula syntax.
That sums up the week and a bit ahead that makes up my exams. More blogging to come during the week.Comments: none yet | Filed under: school | Tagged: application tasks, chemistry, english, exams, general maths advanced, IT, maths methods, physics

Now, all of my exams have been marked. I always manage to mess something up in year 10 maths; 54/55 for tech-free, 60/60 for tech-access. Oh well.
To recap, my exam results for this semester were:
English: 8/10, 9/10 = EX
History: 10/10, 10/10, OS = OS
Mathematics (Year 10): 54/55 (OS), 60/60 (OS)
Science: 100%, 100%, 80% = 100/103 (OS)
Mathematical Methods: 79/80 (OS), 64/70 (OS)
Not too bad. Could’ve been better though. My grade summary says I have an EX average for both semesters. I see that my grades in PE let me down both times. Whatever… I can live with that.Comments: none yet | Filed under: school | Tagged: english, exams, history, maths, maths methods, school, science

So today, two hours of maths exams, comes the conclusion of semester two exams. Pretty good run, I’m satisfied with my marks so far. Science was marked quickly, 100% for chemistry, 100% for electricity/magnetism and 80% for microbes. Luckily microbes is only worth 15% of the exam mark. 100/103 isn’t bad. It just reinforces the fact that I like physics and chemistry, but not biology.
History was good too, 10/10 for section A, 10/10 for section B and OS for section C. Funny how my best mark for history class coincides with the time my writing to me, seems lowest quality.
English wasn’t bad (just not as good as usual); it wasn’t OS… Damn. Oh well, that wasn’t exactly my best writing, and it’s difficult to get OS since 9/10 already moves you down to EX. I dislike marks out of 10. Too hard to get a good worded (ordinal? not quite…) grade.Comments: none yet | Filed under: school | Tagged: english, exams, history, maths, school, science

Another day of examinations took place today, with a two hour English exam and a ninety minute history exam. They weren’t especially hard, so I should be okay with those. Remarkably, the first section (of three) has already been marked. Mr Imam really marks things quickly. 10/10… Hopefully the other sections will be the same.
Tomorrow is my final day of exams… Year 10 Maths. Should be pretty simple; I’ll just have to remember the different triangle centres and stuff about statistics.
- Incentre – the intersection of the angle bisectors; the centre of the inscribed circle
- Circumcentre – the intersection of the perpendicular bisectors; the centre of the circumscribed circle
- Median – line joining a vertex to the midpoint of the opposite side
- Centroid – intersection of the medians
- Altitude – line through a vertex, perpendicular to the opposite side
- Orthocentre – intersection of the altitudes
How am I supposed to remember this?Comments: none yet | Filed under: school | Tagged: english, exams, history, maths, school
