5. General English
English doesn't even deserve to be on the list... I have always hated this subject. 1. it's boring, 2. it's repetitive, 3. it's pointless... I don't understand why they can't just give us an English grade based off of the assignments we do for other subjects... why do we need a whole subject? I know this is gonna sound controversial but here I go... SHAKESPEARE WILL NEVER HELP ME IN LIFE...

I must say though, shout out to literally lauren for making English seem so so interesting and actually enjoyable! I left the QUT English lecture in September wishing Lauren was my English teacher - if she was I wouldn't have a single complaint about English... (Lauren if you see this, please be my English teacher. Thank you 😉 )
100% respect English being at the bottom of the list, that's where it belongs lol

Can't fly up to Queensland to teach just yet (plus the weather there is really hot and I am a wimp), but I can be your honourary distance ed teacher anytime!


Pro-tip for everyone who hates English: ~embrace the frustration~ and see it as a chance to beat the system by learning how to write what your teachers want to see! You don't need to enjoy the subject to do well!  ;D

It's hard to embrace the frustration when it must count towards your atar no matter what. As a STEM student my atar could've been much higher than what is was. Even though I don't care about my atar or about the matter anymore when I was in high school it was hard to just embrace it.

In terms of learning the subjects all of them, but examining them... they are all a pain in the afterlife.

Favourite subjects 1-6:

1. Chemistry
2. Global Politics
3. Biology
4. English
5. Methods
6. French

Did bio as a 3/4 and thought that no subject could be better but I actually really liked my year 12 subjects in general. Never really been too fond of LOTE classes though, every lesson just gives you a clearer idea of the extent of your ignorance.

Edit; also did 1/2 geo and this was the WORST (probs bc of my teacher tbh). Can conclusively say that the whole class learnt nothing at all. In the end winged the exam got a 95% and even then, this mark was not enough to convince me to keep it in yr12. Frustration was at an all time high, I always did bio in geo and considered it as my spare which contributed to the teacher absolutely hating me. I loved all my yr 12 teachers, super knowledgeable and hardworking but this particular teacher wasn’t very confident at all, let students trample her and it felt like her knowledge was limited (struggled to interpret graphs in the textbooks etc)

Class of 2018 but will share my opinions anyways.

The holy trinity:

1. Further (easy, cool teacher, class full of chill kids)
2. Chem (good subject which was the only subject that made sense to me apart from further but with a boring teacher who was also my bio teacher, luckily VCAA went easy on us for the exam)
3. Methods (good subject, great teacher but horrible exams from VCAA)

Wall of shame:

4. Bio (boring teacher, extremely pedantic and unfair marking from VCAA)
5. English (had a great teacher but the subject itself is terrible. I'm certain if it were not compulsory no one would do it)
6. French (had an extremely abusive teacher, the details of what happened aren't appropriate for the forum)

I'm in grade 10. Going to 11 next year. Here are my subject rankings:

1. Methods 1&2 (Always interesting, never boring  8) 8) ;D)
2. Science (Interesting subject and I had a amazing teacher  :D)
3. Digital Tech (really fun. ;D.. but time consuming  :o)
4. Design Tech (really fun as well... but writing up assignments takes really long, espcially drawring.
5. Geo (Winged the exam, don't like it much, back in grade 8 and 9 it was fun and really enjoyable, but grade 10 geo took all the fun away. no learning of geological landscaps or amazing natural systems, but instead all we learn is coastal erosion:))
....
....
....
1000000000. English (Hard, Don't Enjoy, Boring, DIFFICULT, EXTREMELY DIFFICULT, NOT FUN,  >:( >:( >:(  :'()

(HSC)
1. Physics
2. Maths Extension 2
3. Maths Extension 1
4. Chemistry
5. Music
6. English
I think that'd be it. Dropped music due to 'workload' despite loving it; physics is on top because the concepts were the most interesting to me, as Maths X2 was a bit eAsY and vapid for me until it got around to past exams before the HSC.
