    Students taught wrong course

    At Coonamble High School some students who were enrolled in General 2 have been doing General 1 instead by mistake:

    That's a pretty big stuff-up by the school!

    Here is another article on it: http://www.smh.com.au/national/educa...23-gy26r9.html

    I wasn't even aware that there were two general maths courses, what are the differences?

    Pretty sure General 1 is non-ATAR.

    Not sure why the students are complaining when they obviously haven't done a single past paper to notice their course was wrong NOR looked at the syllabus one time in the entire year...

    Actually it was a year 11 student who discovered the problem.

    Not sure why it took so long though.

    I can now feel for students in those country schools. They are very disadvantaged compared to those in Sydney metropolitan schools.
