Brentwood Secondary College in Glen Waverley. Tonnes of asians and I know over 50 people from our cohort doing JMSS. More probably did MHS last year  ???

Ah yes, hey, keep it in perspective! Don't get too upset if you don't make it into MHS or whatever selective school you want to get in.

My cousin went to Brentwood, graduated last year, ended up with a 47 raw in English and basically all her subjects over 40 (god I would kill to get that :P). In the end, this process is more about developing good study habits, you can definitely succeed wherever you are :)

In addition, JAC isn't the 'best' indicator of where you'll end up in. For sure the top students there will get good scores, but I've seen consistently worse people than me at JAC end up with better scholarships :3

In the end, while it is basically down to one test, it by no means ruins/sets you up for life. It's what you do after that counts :)
45+ raw score guaranteed (or 100% refund) for 2022 Methods & Specialist (other subjects also available - classes for all) register now!

Also hiring excellent Methods, Chemistry, Physics, Biology + Specialist tutors with a passion for excellence - PM me!

I'm both happy and sad for her.

The pressure on me is mounting hahahaha :)

But yeah, just take it as experience, you'll start feeling this kind of pressure again in two years :P
