1. Psychology 3&4 - did this last year and will probably be my highest study score at this point haha
2. Psych 1&2
3. HHD 3&4
4. EngLang 3&4
5. HHD 1&2
6. EngLang 1&2
7. Bio 3&4
8. Chem 3&4 - loved Unit 4 and the non-mathsy parts of Unit 3.
9. Further 3&4 - thinking of putting this higher because I did enjoy it for the most part
10. Bio 1&2
11. Chem 1&2

Considerable gap

12. Methods 1&2 - loved my class and my teacher but by the end of it, I was cooked because I was going through some stuff in Year 11 and didn't really want to add the intricacies of methods to my plate. Though I'd be happy to give maths more of a go at uni.


I feel like this will be the order of my study scores from highest to lowest for the 3&4 subjects, actually swap chem with further, and then further with bio. We will see. I guess that goes to show that enjoyment usually correlates with doing well in a subject (forgive the very small sample size).

2021: VCE
2022: Science / Arts @ Monash

My subject rankings:

1. Lit 3/4
2. Lit 1/2
3. Chem 3/4
4. Food Tech 1/2
5. Chem 1/2

---- little gap ----

6. Bio 3/4
7. Bio 1/2

------- big gap -------

6. Spec 1/2
7. Methods 1/2
8. Methods 3/4

------- even bigger gap -------

9. Spec 3/4

I also think my ranking will reflect my study scores. I definitely think that chem and lit (hopefully) will be better than my maths scores. My bio score last year was fine but I really hope methods is a little bit higher.

My subjects in Year 11 (how much it will change?...that I'm curious about)
1. Biology 1/2 (I absolutely loved bio!)
2. Visual Communication and Design 3/4 (except the exam :( )
3. Chemistry 1/2 (loved it and also hated it at points - chemistry switches around a lot for me)
4. Further Maths 1/2
5. Studio Arts 1/2
6. English 1/2

Note: I honestly love all my subjects so far so it's kinda hard to distinctly order them haha (except English, which is definitely my least favourite out of the six)
༚✧VCE 2020 - 2022✧༚

2021 - Visual Communication and Design [43]

2022 - English | Further Maths | Chemistry | Biology

2023 - Science!!! Interested in pharmacology and immunology (basically, I love all things human biology) ☁️

I'm including both my Year 11 and 12 subjects, I completed VCE for reference  8)
1. Psychology (interesting content, had the same amazing teacher for two years, my SACs were always switched up and varied and required me to learn content in different ways, overall great subject)
2. Legal Studies (really interesting and somewhat useful content, definitely more difficult and had draining bits but overall was a rewarding subject area to learn about)
3. English (I'm a total English > Math kid– specifically loved finding different themes in texts and relating them to my world, but the pressure of essay writing brings it down a few spots)
4. Further Mathematics/General Mathematics (took me a lot of effort to get my head around certain concepts but the feeling of successfully completing maths problems is so rewarding, also applicable to daily life despite popular opinion)
5. Biology (loved the idea of Bio, love learning and reading about scientific concepts in books and podcasts, but didn't enjoy the assessments– scored pretty average and didn't need it so I dropped it, but I think if I had put in a bit more effort it would have been better)
6. Visual Communication and Design (its last because I picked it up in Year 12 and struggled a LOT with catching up lol but studying VCD made me realise how much I didn't like studying the fine arts and am much more of a theory/reading/essay person. Was still overall a great experience that taught me to think outside the box and problem solve)

I just finished year 11, idk how much different year 12 will be hmm. I decided to rate them too because why not.

1. methods    ( Half the questions are easy and I am lazy so that's great, the other half are kind of challenging and pretty fun to work out. I give it a 10/10 )
2. spesh    ( It's just spicy methods. I just started 3/4 and the working in some questions is so disgusting omg wtf. This subject is a 9/10 )
3. physics    ( The content is very interesting and I like it a lot. I hate pracs though so it's a 9/10 )
4. further    ( I haven't done this subject yet, but orientation was very fun revisiting stuff we learnt in primary school. 8/10 because most of the 'useful relevant to real life math' is just common sense or cas stuff. )
5. theatre studies    ( I only did this subject because I had a spare subject and my friend was in the class. It isn't really my type of subject, I'm dropping it for further. 5/10 )
5 Chinese    ( It's a bit hard and not that fun. Rating it a solid -8/10 )
6 English    ( This subject is even worse than Chinese and doesn't even make up for it in scaling. Sounds like a massive scam and it gets forced into your top four. -∞/10 )
21: meth [48] ~ chinese [37]
22: english ~ spesh ~ physics ~ further

Hi guys, this is my first non-subject specific post on atarnotes. Here are my rankings!
1. Englang: My favourite and most hated subject at the same time. I loved discussing different essay plans and different ways to explain language features with my friends on a daily basis but I also hated the amount of work involved as well as the amount of stress I had when I got bad feedback. The amount of dedication and investment I had for this subject along with how much i bonded with friends over this subject would have made it impossible for this not to be no.1
2. Spesh: Introduced me to a so many new concepts in maths that I really loved and was super engaged by. Highly recommend as this subject imo involves the 'fun and interesting' parts of maths.
3. Biology: Did this subject in year 11 and loved it. Was always fascinated with biology from year 8 all the way to year 11 and doing it in vce really engaged me throughout all of year 11. Never felt like i was really 'studying' when i worked on biology because it was so interesting and engaging.
4. Methods: Though this subject involved less abstract and conceptually interesting ideas than spesh i enjoyed this subject because the really hard questions at the end of exams (like the inverse function ones etc.) were kind of like puzzles and forced me to think really thoroughly and deeply. Really intellectually stimulating subject and also the easy parts were lowkey satisfying to cruise through.
5. Psychology: Loved learning this subject and had a really great teacher. Doing this subject in year 12 was great because studying it and doing practice questions always reminded me of doing biology. Did not enjoy how vague and ridiculous some questions in the exams were though.
6. Chemistry: I kind of neglected chemistry throughout the year and while I was really interested by concepts like redox and equilibria, I never got invested enough to the point where I could really have a passion for this subject. (Maybe that will happen in uni)
VCE 2020: Biology [50]
VCE 2021: Mathematical Methods [44], Specialist Mathematics [43], Psychology [45], Chemistry [45], English Language [49]
ATAR: 99.90
UCAT: 3240 (99th)
2022-2024: UoM Bachelor of Science Majoring in Data Science (Planning on going into DDS)
