    Predictions

    So it seems this year NESA is testing waters with the new syllabus for various subjects in these years exam (eg english advanced modules and biology). Do you think this years physics paper could follow this trend? Maybe more projectile motion?

    Re: Predictions

    Yeah I thought about that earlier today as well ~ I reckon except more Q's like the JWST period q from like ~2010 or something. I'm like not expecting some westinghouse or space scientist question to spit out ~ Application questions sound like NESA's goal

    Re: Predictions

    Yes especially in physics NESA will probably focus more on the critical thinking aspects of Physics like interpreting data, equating formulas and deriving equations for random situations.
    Which is GREAT news because I love these kinds of questions as opposed to writing essays on Physics

    Yeah those are my favourite too. I'm just hoping theres not too many complex motors and generators questions in multiple choice, I always lose marks on those

    Fair enough. The way I do those questions is, for example if it is a graph including flux, I just imagine how the flux would change in my head to get it.

    Re: Predictions

    I don't know... Examining how HSC exams are going this year, I would say brace for a pretty tough exam to be honest.

    Re: Predictions

    haha I'd recommend you to try the new Physics sample material here: http://educationstandards.nsw.edu.au...=AJPERES&CVID=

    Because in the biology exam, question 3 in the 2019 syllabus practice paper for the new syllabus (here: http://educationstandards.nsw.edu.au...=AJPERES&CVID= ) was literally in the 2018 HSC paper.

    That'd be crazy if q from the 2019 sample paper was in the 2018 phys exam

    Re: Predictions

    That would be kinda sad, all the questions in the sample one are easy, except for stuff we don't learn
