    So I've created a HSC Question Search. This should allow students to search for desired questions within a particular course. Say for example you're studying a topic such as probability. All you would have to do is type 'probability' and select the course as maths. It would allow you to find ANY and ALL probability questions from the inception of the course's HSC papers to now.

    Search for any HSC question, such as:

    Update: Each question will have its marking criteria/sample answers/solution files attached at the end of it so that students can quickly check if their answers are correct.

    The way the search works is that it takes screenshots starting at the line that contains the phrase word.

    But science courses are different because they could potentially have a statement followed by a graph and then the question that has the search words. I need to think of a way to fix this

    maybe use the fact that headings are all in bold.

    That works really well in the multiple choice, but some in short answer it doesn't work because graphs and some strange characters mess up my searching logic.

    I have an idea to get around this. I'll add a little button down below saying 'View full page' or 'Click here if the question is cut', with a popup that opens the entire page or something like that as a temporary get around until I figure out how to use the bolded headings in the short answer

    Hey this is Great,

    But be careful of copyright issues as you do need to pay to use Bostes's questions if it is not off their link directly.

    Haha, true true. I'm still a minor so I doubt they're gonna sue me nor do I have intentions of profiting from ads so this should be fine (hopefully... i'm very optimistic ).
