So I haven’t really updated this website in a while, mostly because school takes too much time… On Thursday, I have one test and two SACs: a Chemistry test, a General Maths Advanced SAC on matrices and a Physics SAC on forces. Since it’s term 3, it’s probably going to get even more busy since this is when all the stuff is supposed to get done. Luckily, Friday is a curriculum day, so I can spend the eighth day of the eight month at home.
I’ve been doing a bit more computer and electronics -related stuff, but nothing to write about really; I’ll have to think of something more interesting to do. I’m still without music content, I know, but I’ll get on to that soon, or perhaps ‘eventually’ would be a more accurate word.
That’s all for now, more blogging to come at a later date.Comments: none yet | Filed under: blog, school | Tagged: chemistry, general maths advanced, physics, school

It’s been a month since my last post, and in that time, I’ve had a GMA test, a (nuclear) physics test, a (periodic table and atomic theory) chemistry test, a maths methods quiz, and an English essay written. All went reasonably well, so I’m pleased with that.
The English essay was about On the Waterfront, one of the texts my sister studied in year 12. Being able to read her essays was a neat advantage. My English teacher this year doesn’t seem to go into the texts with as much detail as I’d like… Luckily my previous teacher has a nice Wikispace with some pretty useful stuff.
I’ve been doing a bit more driving lately, having logged over eight hours in the six weeks after obtaining my permit. Hopefully this means I’ll be able to get my Ps by the time I turn eighteen.

So it’s been a couple of days since school started… After the formalities of the assembly at the start of the first day, we promptly sat a chemistry test (or at least the chemistry students did). I got the paper back and it said 49/63… A little disappointing, but reasonable since I hadn’t prepared for it. Thankfully, it turns out that I actually got 59/63; the teacher inadvertently dropped ten marks from my test. That makes me much more relaxed, although I get the feeling this is going to start happening more often now.
Tomorrow, my 3&4 maths methods teacher will be away at the year 7 & 8 swimming carnival. Happily, this means that my double period of maths has been cancelled. Huzzah. Except that that happens period 2 & 3, and I still have physics period 1. Oh well. Still good.

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
