Woke up to check my ENTER score. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Victorian_Cer...te_of_Education Being often surrounded by high achievers, and holding reasonably high expectations of myself, My ENTER score was a shock to the system. (nb: i passed, but it really isn't a matter of just passing) Although i know I did not overall work as hard as some, for my best subject i worked my guts out so hard but did not get marked to my expectations. I've calmed myself down, but i worry about the future. Although I have no specific long term goal (ie. specific employment) I feel inclined to continue my academic career into university. In a way i feel it is less crushing because i am not entirely sure which path i wish to take, yet my score now severely limits my pathways into courses, and the universities that will offer them to me. Was pretty upset, so i cried. I appreciated my parents consolation, but it will take a bit longer to calm my emotions. I believe my dislike for the system of transition in Australian education is sentiment shared by many. Indeed, my cousin in new Zealand need only pass to have a range of reasonable pathways for academic pursuit. I know there will be others will be satisfied with their result, i congratulate you. I've said what i felt i needed to, so I don't really feel like discussing the result or the system in itself anymore. I hope your advice and wisdom GBAtemp, may continue to support me.
