Also when is half yearlies, is it near the end of term 1 or when specifically, I can't remember from the top of my head

Also half yearlies are usually first 2 core modules (for the sciences) and first half of the maths topics right? What is usually assessed in half yearlies for English?

2. ## Re: 2017ers Chit-Chat Thread

For half yearlies for sciences we have prac tasks 25% weighting

Why do you have three trials T_T

lol it's pretty good it worked out this year because I moved up a few ranks each trial for maths. I think it's good for more practice but also bad because you'll be tired by the end of it. We finish all our content term 2 week 7 of next year and have the first trial at the end of that term, then in term 3 we have the CSSA around week 3-4 and last trial week 7-8 I think.

Coz you get a lot of time to work on it, and all you need to do is be clear and consise (as well as indepth) and relate back to the marking criteria and then ta-da you get free marks in an assignment lol

But seriously, all you need to do well in an assignment is research, write things clearly and concisely and get feedback on it (from past students, HSC markers, school teachers, etc) then you're all g

bruh my school required us to do a ~3 minute skit for prelim chem and now we have to make a brochure (A3 laminated). Can't be bothered spending my time on that, would much prefer theories and pracs all year.

And also the ranks in a subject pretty much don't even change with a research task since like everyone does good so it's useless

What school does a skit and a brochure as an assessment for chem? I've never heard of that

Nah I hate pracs

Damm, literally everyone does industrial and you're the only one doing forensic

Nah they're just silly mistakes tbh, nothing wrong with it but yeah as long as you took note of your mistakes, then you're going to be fine
