    Re: Exam Thoughts

    Pompeii very difficult multiple choice had to make a lost of educated guesses.
    Minoan and Hatshepsut section was really good and straight forward. Anyone do New Kingdom Egypt? Very difficult questions basically from the same dot point but different versions.

    Hope you guys did well and were happy with your results, best of luck for the rest of the exams. Hope to hear your thoughts about this exam.
    For Pompeii multiple choice I put
    1) religion
    2)statement 1 is true statement 2 is false
    3) fuller
    4) outside Pompeii Nucerian gate
    5) quinquennial Duumviri

    Re: Exam Thoughts

    i did sparta, nke and hatshepsut. nke was actually crazy difficult i wasn't really expecting them to narrow down that much on the relations dot point. like...mitanni of all places? lol. particularly in comparison with last year's hsc, nke's essay questions were a lot more challenging.

    Generally, for me, a really hard hard exam. Both greek world 500-440 questions were awful, P&H was also really hard.

    Re: Exam Thoughts

    You have the exact same multiple choice as me except for 5 i put the concept of honour
    Generally, for me it was the only 'hard' section in the paper
    Good luck to you to

    Re: Exam Thoughts

    I thought the MC for Pompeii were pretty hard - after looking at HSC discussion group I know that I already got some wrong. That said, the written answer questions for Pompeii were great - especially the tourism one! My school did Sparta to the battle of Leuctra for the society. Everyone was complaining that those questions were really bad but I thought they were pretty good! Especially the last one about 'culture' I mean you can literally talk about anything. We did Alexander the Great for the personality, and I found the questions much easier than trials. The 25 marker we did the Greek World and Persian Wars, and I found both questions pretty hard to answer, but I did my best Speaking to a teacher (who is also a marker) beforehand, he said that the markers WANT to give you marks. He said that it's really not difficult to get a 15/25 for the essay if the markers can simply see that you've had a go, which is super reassuring

    Re: Exam Thoughts

    Everything was pretty ok for me EXCEPT for EGYPT to the death of THUTMOSE IV which was terrible, i probs got like 10 out of 25 for that. It was honestly just so terrible, as i did not study for either of the questions. Easiest was Minoans which I reckon I aced.
