Lol, sadly so true for me =[Anus McLovin said:My bad. I meant people can't go to those schools on natural talent alone. You gotta study a little..even the slightest goes a long way in year 6.
And as for the social awkward thing, i intentionally left the word "most" in there because at these schools the "normal" ones actually happen to be a minority, at the most 50-50. It's only around year 11 and 12 about 1/2 of those 50% open up, and so really, for 4 years of school, it's only 1/4 of the school prepared for the outside world.
ok you were all smooth until that partjaychouf4n said:Lol, sadly so true for me =[
Except i opened up in y9 XD
I guess im not exactly the smooth talking guy, but i can strike up conversation with girls.
And, anyways I like going to a top 10 school, it makes me realise how unspecial I am and that I have to work hard to get to where i want to go. I understand that I'm not god in intelligence, and that my natural ability won't get me anywhere.
And for absolutely no reason, here is a Ninja
if he was crazy about football and talked all day long about it would still feel the same way?ASNSWR127 said:Well I got into a selective high school but turned it down (Penrith)
I think it would be much better to have all options open to a student rather than uni, career etc etc
I mean what is wrong with a trade? or a more vocational job? However they are certainly better than private schools
But the other day I wasa talking to some guy about something and he was obsessed with physics.
So obsessed he talked too much abut it and I don't have an outstanding knowledge or pasion for it and his arrogance for his "nuclear physicist career" or some BS was outstanding.... I could have knocked him flat but showed much restraint lol.
I don't think it is good in any circumstance to show or encourage elitism.
Because of Asian Parents. Most of them don't know that it's a skills test and they expect their kids to memorise everything in past papers. LOL, we didnt even know how to study back thenmoll. said:Bahahaha.
People do practice exams for the selective test?
What a waste.
That's like studying for the School Certificate.
Yeah, my sister decided to study for the SC and ended up with 3 Band 5's and 2 Band 6's.studentcheese said:Because of Asian Parents. Most of them don't know that it's a skills test and they expect their kids to memorise everything in past papers. LOL, we didnt even know how to study back then
LOL, however it's usually the kids who decide to study for the SC. Most parents don't even know what it is!
No, the school certificate used to be a set of exams that were typically taken in year 10.This thread is from 2008. I think the hsc used to be simply named school certificate.
