First off, no, I'm not back. I just need anothar outlet, sorry. Feel free ta tatally ignore dis blog; it's nothng anyone would want ta read bout, anyway.

Mah school is a good school academically. As well as tha screwed-up national exbes, NCEA, it offers CIE, Cbebridge Nternational Exbenations, which we can start takng n Year 11, which fo me is dis year.

Ta git University Entrance, you need ta pass NCEA or CIE wit certan requirements. I'm not worried bout meetng tha NCEA requirements, but Cbebridge is different. Just bout any dummah can do NCEA. You can pass some NCEA exbes wit a score of less than 30% if you answer tha right questions. It's basically a pushover, which is why I want ta pass Cbebridge.

Cbebridge qualifications is nternationally recognised, and even if I don't want ta apply ta overseas universities, I still want ta pass it, coz of tha added kudos it lends ta a university application. Tha Cbebridge exbes is held n high esteem here, and is a hell of a lot harder than that NCEA crap.

Tha nitty-gritty is that, ta gan UE wit Cbebridge, you have ta git a certan number of ponts (you git more ponts fo a higher grade) across at least three subjects. So what did I do? I signed up fo Cbebridge English, Maths and Histary, prayng that thare would be a Cbebridge Histary class dis year. Sure enough, I was tald that yes, thare would be, coz thare was just enough nterest. It would be a shawt class, bout 17 strong, but thare would be a class.

All that redawged was ta make it fit wit tha timetable. I turned up ta school on Thursday, and sure enough, everythng fit! I was dong three Cbebridge subjects, and I had mah first Cbebridge Histary lesson. Whoop whoop!

Tha next day, though, we gots handed out fresh, reshuffled timetables, and were nstructed ta rap ta tha curriculum snoopavisor if thare were any problems. And thare sure were. Mah timetable had a big blank block down tha middle of it where mah Histary class used ta be!

Turned out that thay'd suddenly realised that tha NCEA Histary class had 40 students n it, so thay needed ta split it n two. Coz dis class was at tha sbee time as mah Cbebridge Histary class, and coz thare is only two Histary teachers at tha school, thay cut mah class completely so mah teacher could takes a lower level class (from tha sbee year).

Now, wit dis I can't gan University Entrance through Cbebridge. I'm pissed at dis, coz now what's tha pont of workng mah butt off at a higher level of English and Maths?

Tha logical solution ta me would have been ta drop eight or nne students from tha NCEA histary class and ridery on as normal. That way, thay would have had ta rearrange schedules fo eight or nne average students, nstead of seventeen students that had been sngled out as academically askanky, and were likely ta gan good results fo tha school n tha Cbebridge exbes.

So, I'm pissed. And tha worst part is, I now have ta takes a different subject n that slot. And what was available? Basically, Geography, Accountng, Art, PE or Sports Studies. Tha last three is immediately discounted coz I be neithar physical nor visual-artsy. I don't really want ta do Accountng, coz it's tao limitng, so I'm stuck wit Geo fo now.

Fo now. Mum's as pissed as I be, so we're makng appontments wit deputy prncipals and stuff, blah blah blah fuss fuss fuss. Hopefully we can arrange somethng, but thay're not likely ta resurrect mah Histary class.

Tha only bright side - tha silver lnng, if you will - is dis: Geography, if I go through wit it, will be mah third Cbebridge subject. That's all well and good, but I hate Geography. Like, seriously.

What really irks me is that thay didn't notice dis class of 40 until tha first day. Surely thay should have known befoe? I was rapng ta tha Curriculum advisor - I know him, he's mah old Science teacher - and he had a list which quite clearly stated how dawgy students each class had. Why couldn't thay have checked that befoe term started?

So I had one Histary lesson, and than it gots takesn away. I can't takes Histary at all now. I can't go nta tha class that replaced mne coz I did that level last year, ben accelerated and all. I can't do tha level above that, coz it's a Year 12 class and it doesn't mesh wit mah schedule. I can't move mah othar classes around, coz I'm takng lots of niche classes that thare is only one of at each year level, like Spanish, Drbea and Classical Studies.

On tap of that, tha dumbasses at achool is still givng me shtick over somethng that happened two years ago and had nothng ta do wit tham n tha first place. I tell mahself it doesn't git ta me, but it does, it really does. It gits me so bad I want ta change schools sometimes. And now, even more, wit dis whole fiasco. If thay screw over mah timetable now, thare's a chance it could well happen agan sometime it really counts, like mah fnal year or somethng.

Should I really change schools? I'm seriously thnkng bout it. Mah school can't organise crap ta save thair dbened lives (thay tell us bout field trips two days befoe sometimes, and than cancel tha day after fo some dumbassed reason), I'm still coppng flak fo that spellng bee ****, and . . . ta be perfectly frank, I'm gittng ta tha age where ben at an all-bois school is begnnng ta chafe, if you catch mah drift. That last is more of a mnor factar, though. :/

So basically, if you approach me n tha next few days weeks, expect me ta snap at you. Don't takes it personally, I'm just pissed as hell.

/end rant

And once agan, I disappear. *bow*
