Will a bad Year 12 first semester sabotage my process?

Hi guys

I have just finished my semester 1 exams and needless to say, it's not looking very good. I have mostly 60s and high 50s and most of my averages are clustered around 50s to 60s.

I had a predicted 97 end of last year and was hoping to get it up to at least a 98 this year but due to covid and personal stuff I lost grip on school and my grades reflect that. Recently, I went to my counselor and she said the highest I could get this year is a 85 and that genuinely destroyed me.

I'm willing to put in twice the effort to get my marks back up so would a bad Semester 1 ruin my entire predicted?

I wouldn't be able to place a hard cap on your ATAR based on sem 1 results as the exam has a huge impact on results, including SAC scaling. Nothing is 100% locked-in terms of what grade will show up on your statement of results yet, all you can do is your best from here and lean on that the exam is worth a lot + cohort performance on the exam will affect your SAC marks.

Best of luck!
