VCE Results 2010

VCE Results 2010 - More than 50,000 high school graduates have spent Monday morning nervously waiting to access their Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) exam results.

The state has registered a high school completion rate of 97.01 per cent.

Students began accessing their results from 7am on the internet and on their mobile phones.

The results will also begin arriving by mail from Tuesday.

This year marks the first time students will receive an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR), formerly known as the Equivalent National Tertiary Entrance Rank (ENTER).

In bayside Melbourne, McKinnon Secondary College student Rachel Cole was ecstatic to receive a score of 99.90 sent to her mobile phone.

'I didn't really sleep last night, I was a little bit nervous,' she told AAP.

Rachel, who studied Chemistry, Psychology, Further Mathematics, Biology, Physical Education and English said the score came as a 'massive shock'.

'To get over 90 was like a dream but I would never have expected this,' she told AAP.

The avid singer and hockey player says she hopes to get a place in a physiotherapy course at Monash University and study medicine as a postgraduate after narrowly missing out on an interview for a medical place.

Rochester Secondary College principal Bernie Altmann said the 54 Year 12 students who completed their VCE in the college had generally performed as expected.

'It's been a strong year, most kids are happy with how they've gone, there's a few who didn't do quite as well,' he told AAP.

'There's still a lot of avenues open to them.'

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.

100-calorie Packs Diet

100-calorie Packs Diet - Did you know recent studies show chronic dieters tend to consume more calories when foods and packages are smaller? Consumer behavior was observed in the study regarding "mini-packs," 100-calorie food packages that are marketed to help people control calorie intake.

The study revealed that one group that over-consumes the mini-packs is chronic dieters - individuals making a conscious effort in trying to manage their weight and food intake.

This shows that the distorted perception of small packages may actually undermine dieters' attempts to limit calories.

Consider this: Consumers perceive the mini-packs to be a generous portion of food - numerous small food morsels in each pack and multiple mini-packs in each box - while on the other hand, consumers perceive the mini-packs to be diet food. For chronic dieters, this perceptual dilemma causes a tendency to overeat, due to their emotion-laden relationship with food.

In a series of focus group studi…
