    Impact on Society Questions

    For these types of questions, do you have to list both positive and negative impacts? Looking at past HSC papers the answers rarely give negatives and only focus on positive impacts, would it be safer to do both positives or negatives or can we choose to only focus on one aspect?

    Do both the answers they give in those suggested solutions are like band 4-5 answers.

    Re: Impact on Society Questions

    Don't depend entirely on the sample HSC answers; they're not always that great or complete.

    You need to give both advantages AND disadvantages. This is especially so for assess/evaluate questions, but also for discuss questions.
    The disadvantages are often really poorly done, so ensure you're able to come up with good ones when asked. Let me know if there are any particular ones you're struggling to come up with.

    Always remember to link the advantage/disadvantage back to society.
    People always just throw down the advantage, but fail to link it back to the question.
    For example, AC can be transformed, meaning we can increase accessibility to electricity, especially in rural areas. So what? It means we can improve their quality of life with technologies such as refrigeration, computers, AC, etc.
    AC has led to increased automation of industry. So what? It means that it's led to a loss in jobs requiring unskilled labour.

    Also remember to give a judgement/overall evaluation.

    For Discuss / Assess / Evaluate etc.. You DO NOT need to do BOTH sides — You can focus on one or the other or both. Some students try and address both for everything and with this runs the risk of saying something superficial just for the sakes of addressing both.

    For example, Discuss the contribution of Tasmanians to a functioning Australian society, defs only one side for that.
