I somehow clutched up and my grades for Term 2 aren't as bad as I thought they would be. Here's my termly reflection for all 6 of my subjects. Note that the percentages listed are for the whole semester and not just for this term.
Engineering (92%): I have mixed feelings about Engineering. Although I knew I did well considering that I had just switched from Digital Solutions, I feel that I could have done better. I did not put enough effort into my drafts and checkpoints and hence I did not receive the feedback necessary to get a better grade.
Physics (90%): I'll admit that I completely threw this term. We only had an assignment this term and since its weighting was relatively high, it dragged down my semester grade by an entire 10%. Once again, I was lazy with the draft and only submitted a half-complete draft. Unsurprisingly, most of the marks that I lost were in the sections that I didn't complete in my draft.
Chemistry (87%): Chemistry is that one subject that is basically unpredictable. For my assignment this term, I also submitted a half-complete draft (I know that I'm being repetitive here, but this has been a recurring problem for me this term). I ended up getting full marks for the first section, but dropped marks on the last two sections because of my careless evaluation and identification of limitations and uncertainty. After receiving that mark, I furiously studied for the upcoming data test and smashed that with a 10/10. I'll really need something special next term to save my chem grade.
Math Methods (82%): I really don't want to go into too much detail because I've already commented about my methods situation in another post. I ran out of time on the exam making silly errors and then crossing them out again. I even had to redo entire questions because I was being clumsy with either the math or the interpretation of the question. My goal next term is to SPEED UP my working out and also to not make careless errors.
English (82%): This one really surprised me because I was fully expecting to fail this term. However, I ended up getting 92% this term and combined with the 72% last term, it puts me at what I got for the semester. I wrote my speech in a way that was accessible to the audience instead of being formal like I usually do in essays. As for the speaking itself, I did my best to include pauses, hand gestures, and other features that are present in good speeches. Hopefully I can keep up the good grade next term.
Specialist Maths (71%): I don't want to think too hard about this because I absolutely FLUNKED this term's exam. I had the same problem with specialist as methods, but I made more mistakes this time and attempted even less questions.
