I'm such a snob. >_> Arts at Melbourne Uni has now been moved up to second place, with first place still occupied Media and Communications at Melbourne, which I won't get into, but maybe the fringe will be lowered from 94.35 or something. We'll see. I've heard that it's difficult to get a job with a degree in Journalism from Caulfield, and RMIT seems so...hardcore and rigid, and I don't really like that. :-\ I really like the Political Science course at Melb and according to their website "Graduates of the Bachelor of Arts who have majored in political science are highly sought after by employers and find that they are on the threshold of many interesting career paths." Sounds good. But of course, it's their course, so there might be an element of bias in that statement. Either way, I'm going to Change of Preference Information Day tomorrow, and I'll see how it goes.
I don't feel too special about my ENTER anymore now that I know about 60 people in my year got above 90. Ah well. Good for them. High achievers is going to take so long though. >_> Oh, and Aruna and Ee-Wei both got dux with 99.35. Not surprising, but in regards to Aruna, slightly annoying. She missed so many days of school just to study. Hm. Sacred Heart also completely OWNED Australian History. 18 of us got above 40 including two 50s. That's 18 out of about 36, by the way. How awesome!
In regards to my own scores, Politics was slighlty disappointing, Revs was expected considering my terrible performance on the exam, English was pretty good considering that I only completed about half the exam well, Australian History was good, and Methods! SO HAPPY. 33! I was aiming for 30 and yay. I love that it gets scaled up by 6-7 points. All that coupled with Religion and Society from last year = not such a bad score. I do feel silly for stressing, but maybe this will teach me not to overreact so much. :D
As a reward, Mum bought me a silver necklace that I had my eye on (it's a snake chain with a floating star, like those floating heart ones, but 1000x cooler) and a white chocolate mud cake AAAANNNNND made me sushi and bought wine. :D So exciting.
So yes, congratulations everyone. Everyone's done so well! I love it. Good luck for uni preferences and all that.
