My eldest daughter is currently undertaking her VCE. She is working really hard and we are all so proud of her. Her teachers are very pleased wit her efforts and hopefully she will attain the score she needs to be accepted into the uni course she has her eye on.

The only problem seems to be stress. She can go days at a time as the happy, fun girl she is and then, bang, out of the blue she becomes this super-stressed girl who is upset, tearful and anxious. My friends warned me that this would happen and that it is normal. But it proves to be a difficult year for all the family. Thank goodness we are nearing the end and I hope for the bst for her. My worry next is if she doesn’t get the score she needs.

So much is put on this one crucial year, we can only support her with as much love as we can while she gets through it.

Any tips for the next few months from othr parents who have been through it would be great.

  • don’t BE TOO STRESSED ABOUT SCORES. My youngest son was a late bloomer and went to uni in later years and sailed thru brilliantly.


  • Pleased to say she did really well and is now in her preferred course at Uni. Wish me luck again….my second daughter is doing her VCE this year!


  • Sorry, haven’t hit that bump in the road yet.


  • PLEASE explain to her that although vce is important there are hundreds of other ways to get into uni than a vce score. School is NOT the be all end all. Google how many success stories never even completed high school!
