When I was in Year 12 five years ago we didn’t have to do anything special. Do your homework and get high-ish marks on your exams and you were ready for university. My younger sister is now in Year 12. I’ve seen the amount of holiday homework she’s been doing in preparation for the upcoming year and it’s ridiculous. She was also telling me about the half-an-hour long oral presentation they have to do – during which they are not allowed to refer to their powerpoint and get marks deducted if they look at their cue cards. What. That is terrifying.
