Woot!

I've finally broken through the magic 90% barrier on a Chemistry practice exam! Physics still has a way to go though... and the exams are on Wednesday and Thursday ;_;
These are the final exams for my secondary education.

Wish me luck.

I've just finished year 12 now, VCE (Victorian equivalent of HSC) is complete, and now I must wait a month until the results are released. I can't say I'm terribly optimistic, but I hope my scores will be good enough to leave at least a few available options.

Ah one year ahead of me.

I'm only beginning my HSC and assessment tasks are already rolling in... guess it's now or never.

Good luck with that Junpei, hopefully you won't make the same mistakes I did. I think I could have been crowned procrastination king of the universe at times, it seems that the most difficult aspect of getting work done is monumental psychological effort needed just to start, after that it becomes much easier.
Also, here is a handy hint. If you are doing a mathematics subject, chances are your teacher will set select questions from the textbook during class and as homework (ie. do the Right hand column, every second questions etc.). AVOID THIS AT ALL COST. I've found that by completing every problem in the chapter which I was studying (instead of the minimum requirement), I was able to improve my average mark by as more that 10%, bringing it up from about 82% to over 95%.
It's too bad I ended up neglecting this principle half the time myself, though in preparation for the physics exam, I managed to complete 621 problems over 5 days, which just may have been able to salvage me an A+

I couldn't think of any other thread to post this in. Maybe some of you folks can understand this, but sorry, I cannot for the life of me see why these people are doing this, unless they've just flat out lost their minds. I must be a really old geezer for sure. Confused

Wow... Big fans waiting overnight I can understand, but 3-4 weeks out in the cold? They're either like what Gleo said and lost their minds or they're just very serious with their hobbies.

Some people are extreme fans.  Heck, I spent 48 hours in line for Phantom Menace*...


* The movie wasn't really worth it, really, but it was more about he social experience spending it with 100 other Star Wars fans.  That, and we actually cheated and stayed in the line in shifts.  And it never got cold (though it did rain...)
