You’ve probably been told that year 12 will be the best year of your life. Which, I don’t agree with. There will be so many more opportunities throughout your life to do amazing things and live life to the fullest. But in my opinion, year 12 is better than the other years of school. And that might sound weird, but here are my reasons:
1. You’re most likely doing subjects you actually chose, enjoy and want to do. I know I really liked not having to stress about all the subjects I was forced to do in other years, and being able to just do what I liked and was good at.
2. In years 7-10 a lot of assessments include take home projects and research assignments, and for most VCE subjects you won’t have any of that (it may depend on your teachers, but most teachers will probably just make your SACs mimic the exam conditions). Some people might not prefer doing tests, but personally I enjoyed it that way more. It meant I just needed to study for a SAC, and then just try my best when it came to doing it, instead of doing tedious research and writing and editing and stressing about getting project after project turned in on time. So if that’s what you’re like then you’ll likely find that the work you have to do in year 12 will be more bearable.
3. Teachers tend to treat you more like adults than in previous years, and won’t tell you off so harshly or as often for being late, or wearing the wrong uniform, and things like that, and you can just be a bit more easygoing around them.
4. If you surround yourself with good friends (GOOD friends) then you can truly make the most of year 12 events like formal, athletics and swimming carnivals, celebration week/muck up week or whatever your school calls it, 18ths and graduation. And you can end up making some really good memories throughout the year. You just need to find ways to have fun! .
