Whatever you call it (ATAR, ENTER, TER etc), anyone who has been through Year 12 can remember the reaction they had when they received their results.
Take it from someone who got an average score, there are so many opportunities if you don’t get what you were hoping for.
If you’re graduating Year 12 this year, you might have one of these reactions.
“Yeah I’m good!”
You worked your butt off all year and get what you expected, or better, but don’t want to show off.
“I need to tell everyone!
You start bragging about your score as soon as you get it. The gif explains it all.
“I got in!”
Maybe you needed to get a certain score to get into your course and you got it!
“I totally fluked that”
When you spent all year not trying and somehow got an awesome ATAR.
“That seems right”
You might have done your best without going to too much effort throughout the year and are ok with your result.
“I need a moment”
When your score is less than you hoped, then after you’ve had time to process it you think ‘maybe that’s accurate’.
“It’s the end of the world! FML”
Your ATAR is waaaayyy lower than you were hoping for.
“I’m asking for a friend”
When you start asking around to see what everyone got without revealing your ATAR just yet.
“Good one, smart friend”
When your smart BFF nailed their ATAR and you’re all “you’d better become successful and pay for the rest of my life”
