If you've ever been a student, then you know how hard it is to achieve a balance between school and your personal life, especially as you get older. It's something that all students struggle with some time during their education, and it's something that we all had to figure out. Some students really enjoy learning and going to school, but for many of us, it's a chore to do homework and complete the necessary study every week. There are . . .
The transition from high school to university is hard enough on its own, let alone not knowing what university is really all about. So what is the truth about university life? When I was in high school, I would hear stories from older students and graduates, depicting the gloriousness that is university. How it's an incredible experience that's to be savoured and treasured, and looked forward to by the younger students. These stories made . . .
This post follows on from the previous post Things You Should Get Done Before Your University’s Orientation Week. After doing all the preparations for Orientation week, it’s time to actually go onto campus and discover what university is all about. But university is usually so much bigger than high school, so where should you be going to get the most out of the experience? Get your student id card. If you haven’t already . . .
It's hard not to get overwhelmed the first time you step onto campus. Luckily, you can reduce the stress you feel by doing a little bit of preparation beforehand. These are some things you should do before Orientation comes along: Do your research beforehand. Your first time on campus as an official student can be quite overwhelming if you don’t have a general idea of where you want to go. This is especially true during orientation . . .
It's officially the school season again! Young hopefuls all over the world pack their bags and head off to school to gain knowledge that will (hopefully) allow them to pay off the debt that they slowly accumulate every day... (but that's a post for another day) This post is all about school organisation, specifically how to get organised for school with diaries and planners. Most students look for three things in . . .
Today, offers were sent out from Australian universities to prospective students and I have to say that university is a lot more confusing than high school. I can say with absolute certainty that the transition from primary school to high school was not as drastic as the transition from high school to university will be. Simply deciding on a degree to pursue was difficult enough, let alone deciding majors and courses with that specific . . .
Is it weird that I feel a bit lost now that final results are out and I have achieved my goal? I live in a constant state of needing to have something to do. I've never been content to just have nothing to do. When that happens, I find myself making and writing down lists just to have something to go on when I find myself sitting around doing nothing. It's a little bit ridiculous when I feel the need to write down the leisure activities I . . .
In celebration of the ATARS that were released today for HSC students, I'll be discussing how to deal with disappointing exam results. It is inevitable that you will receive a disappointing result at least once in your lifetime. This can be for a job interview, a scholarship interview or just for plain school exams. As a student, the disappointing results that you will most likely face are those exam results. It is rare for students . . .
Most of us out there don’t enjoy getting exam results back, but unfortunately, this is what being a student means. I personally hate getting results back, even if I feel like I performed okay. I think for a lot of us, it’s the what if’s that scare us. What if I didn’t do as well as I expected? What if I really did fail? What if I didn’t do enough? These are questions that plague my mind after each exam and right before results come out, which . . .
When I first started Year 12 last year, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. I saw how stressed the seniors were in the year before me and I had also heard stories about students having panic attacks during exams. Having gone through the whole process now, I have to say that it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be despite all the negativity and stress surrounding the whole topic, but I couldn’t have made it through without learning a few things . . .
