Marks back for ITVET Trial

  • ITVET - 71/80 (89%) Task Rank 1/14, Course Rank 1/14 - apparently this was the highest ITVET trial mark in my schools history, so while i wanted to break the 90% i'm not too disappointed

  • Completed Exersize 10-02 General Math
  • Completed Part 1/2 of my IPT assignment due next tuesday - took up my entire afternoon.

I was a lot more productive today when compared to yesterday, hopefully i can keep this trend going

Apart from the typical school work routine most of my day has been spent looking into, and stressing about university courses. Thinking of applying for BIT co-op scholarship at UTS just to give it a shot and all. Apart from that, looking closely at Bachelor of Information Systems and Bachelor of Commerce/Major in Business Information Systems at various universities. My ideal degree would be Bachelor of Commerce / Bachelor of Information Systems at UNSW but the cutoff is quite high

  • Completed Exersize 10-02 General Math
  • Notes for Stakeholders in HR for Business
  • Touched up on part 1/2 of my IPT assignment
  • Spent 5 hours looking into uni courses

If anyone has some advice on ideal degrees/universities to attend for becoming a Systems Analyst i would much like to hear it

I have got a mediocre amount of work done over the past 2 days. Friday was productive but i spent the early half of this day procrastinating and had a party tonight so i'll have to make up for that.

  • IPT Assignment Part 1 Touch up
  • IPT Assignment Part 2 1/4 complete
  • Completed Exersize 10-03 General Math
  • 2 IPT HSC Short Answer Questions
  • ITVET Revision

Planning to complete my IPT assignment tomorrow and do at least 3 dot-points of Business notes. From there i need to start preparing for my final Standard English task on the 26th, really have to start regular past papers as well

I'm still doing textbook stuff with my class for math unfortunately, should finish up with it by the end of this week though, Exersize 10 plays on all my weaknesses in math so i don't really want to go ahead

Marks back for General Math trial

  • General Math - 67/100 (67%) Task Rank 6/40, Course Rank ?/40

Really disappointed with this result, i can hopefully dispute my way to at least a 70, which will move me into the top 5 but i really have to step my game up regardless. Haven't been told anything about my total rank since half yearlies, but hoping that it is in the top 10

Lack of updates due to me taking a break over the past few days and studying for my final english task which i sat today. Marks for IPT Assignment 2 and Standard English Trial back

  • IPT - 99/100 (99%) Task Rank 2/22, Course Rank 3/22
  • Standard English - 86/105 (82%) Task Rank ?/59, Course Rank 1/59

Second in IPT behind my brother who got 100, apparently i lost a mark because of word limit. As for Standard English i bombed out on that pretty hard, planning to pick my game up for externals though

Will update with progress tonight

Katsumi what drives you ? #Motivation
It's more or less a mix between genuinely wanting to do well in my studies because i want to get into university whilst not regretting my final high school year and the fact that i believe that anyone can sit there and think about the HSC whilst stressing and being anxious, but the thing that differentiates the top band students from everyone below them is the willingness to get up and put everything they have into their studies. I constantly think that i should just give up and stop working until a few weeks before the HSC, yet if i am half the man i say i am, i'm going to have to hammer down and finish strong (to the point of reaching my high school academic peak come externals). Only i can help myself and i have the power to change the rest of my life now, that's what drives me more or less

Lack of updates due to a bunch of things that have been going on lately. I have gotten a bit of study in here and there and have completed around 5 papers since i have last posted, in addition to a bit of note revision. I have nothing but free time from tomorrow to the HSC so guess i'll start cramming

If you can ''rote-learn'' the Business Studies syllabus well and have good exam technique, you'll do fantastic :)
