So yesterday was Monday and therefore results day, on Sunday night I didn't sleep hardly at all - and I kept having weird half awake dream/nightmares, like I thought there was a huge spider on the roof over my head - my roof is all angular so it seemed pretty close to my face and I screamed and jumped out of bed and turned on the light, and there was no spider. Freaked me majorly out - Lillie had to come up and check my bed covers before I could get back in.
Okay so my results, I did okay - more then okay I went well. I got an 81.95!
Which is an awesome score - especially because its a score that is partly done by ranking, in my subjects I went pretty well, by the way for anyone who doesn't live in Victoria subjects each get a score out of 50 - the average mean is in the high 30's I think (ETA: xanya just imformed me that the average score is in the early 30s. go me!), for most subjects, 50 is almost impossible to get and to get anything in the 40s in very hard. Then an overall mark, a score out of 99.95 (100 is impossible to get, 99.95 is the prefect score) is calculated by some complicated method but simplified basically the four highest subject marks get added together somehow and 10% of the lowest subject mark to make a score out of 99.95. Confused? To add more confusion they have a scaling system - in which the raw scores out of 50 are changed by either marks added or take away to even out the playing field supposedly. Hard subjects like languages, sciences and histories get marked up while subjects such as Art, get marked down because they're considered easy (which by the way is total bullshit, my arts subjecst were some of my hardest - they required the most work) Most of my subjects got marked down which is a pain - Politics and Classics were the only ones that got marked up.
English: 36.02 (my raw score was 37, stupid scaling!)
Classics: 38.49 (I am so proud of this mark, not only was it the best out of my subjects after scaling but I got higher then my sister did when she did Classics - which sounds horrible but I don't care!)
Studio Arts: 35.22 (I got a raw score of 39! Which is one of the reason I'm annoyed at the scaling system though I'm so excited with this because on all formal assesments I got A+'s!
Political Studies: 35.21 (this was such a hard exam so this is an awesome score!)
Arts: 33.54 (Stupid scaling brought this one down too, I orginally got a 36)
I got my letter marks too, which is awesome, and I got four A+'s, nine A's and two B+'s, I'm so very excited about those! Anyhow so thats my results. Highschool is now offically and emotionaly over! Now I just have to wait for Uni selection which happens in Janurary. But thats agggges away so I'm living stress free!
Now I have to go face my doom with a driving lesson.
