    There might be some mx2 stuff in there with mechanics, conics etc, all the ez stuff. Don't forget chem as well they might mix in chem with food and reactions in the hospitality environment!

    essay question is always about legislations... learn your legislations and acts.
    or they could be annoying and do a fifteen marker about inter-relation in sectors

    Re: Thoughts: Hospitality 2014 Discussion

    but if you look at the past exams, every 2nd year they do a legislation extended response and every other year they do a broad question (e.g. cultural diversity or environmental sustainability etc etc ). Last year it was legislation so i think we will get a broad one but im not sure!

    omg i could not answer a question about the inter-relationships in sectors!! thats like impossible shit!
    how would you even answer that?

    what does your teacher thing it will be?

    Re: Thoughts: Hospitality 2014 Discussion

    I have a strong feeling the 15 marker will be about cultural diversity OR environmental sustainability. HAACP won't be a 15 marker, its too vague, it may be used for commercial cookery (10 marker), though I highly doubt it. Looking at past papers, I think it was only asked once or twice. In terms of studying, I've looked at past papers, and learned the content (just skimmed though it) because seeing past papers I can only find 1 or 2 that are hard...thats about it. What do you think?

    Re: Thoughts: Hospitality 2014 Discussion

    2012 was cultural diversity so i dont think it will be that. i also think it will be about environment sustainability.
    okay thanks sounds good!
    i think haccp will be commercial cookery - how should we prepare for this.. i wouldnt know how to apply haccp to particular foods - it is not in the textbook!

    nourah how did your go in your trials? cssa or independent?

    I received 87%, however only lost marks because I missed an 5 marker (I was going to shoot myself!). I think it was CSSA, but my teacher changed a many of the questions. I am not quite sure.

    What textbook are using? I can send you a PDF version of mine, its very helpful!

    Basically, HAACP is all about identifying and eradicating contamination during critical part of food production. They would ask something along the lines of "Outline HAACP, and its relevance to the HOSPO industry" or something. So you would define HAACP, introduce the 7 steps, and underlying prinicples. Then you would say how this relates to hospo industry, and its importance. Something such as making sure chef locates critical control points, and ensure that they manage it properly by undertaking appropiate measures. For example, when a person is receiving fresh meat stock it should be at 5 degrees. You should note its not all about the cooking process. You can talk about recieving stock, how long food should be held for, critical foods such as meats etc. Hope that helps. Message me if you need more help!

    Re: Thoughts: Hospitality 2014 Discussion

    Hi trungduong12,

    Yes, I did. I summarised the Cambridge textbook. And you're right, the syllabus is very extensive, and heavy. For acts and legalisation, many of them are self-explanatory. In saying that, most people can look at a law and know what it is. For hospo, you don't need to know laws/regs in depth. Its a matter of being able to define it, and relate to the hospo industry. For example, Racial Dis. The name says it all. Its a law that stipulates that discrimination based on race is illegal etc. There are really only 20 laws or so you need to remember, and when you recieve a question in hospo that relate to the concepts below it is important to use laws.

    Hygiene
    - Food Act 2003 (NSW) (as amended) - offense to sell contaminated food, must conform to food standards, EHO has rights to enter etc

    Liquor licensing legislation - location of alchohol, time to sell alchol, drinking age, employee qualifications
    - Liquor Act 1982 (NSW)
    - Liquid Amendment Act 2000

    Environment - no smoking in public areas to protect customers/workers
    - Smoke-free Environment Act 2000 (NSW)
    - Smoke-free Environment Regulation 2001

    Gaming - who plays games, where games are located, number/type of games allowed, fair price for prizes etc
    - Gaming Machines Act 2001 (NSW) (as amended)
    - Gaming Machines Regulations 2002 (NSW)

    Health and safety - everyone has duty of care, theyre goals to improve health/safety of all people
    - WHS Act
    - WHS Regulations

    Workers compensation - relating to compensation given when an employee is injuried from work, protects them, stipulates all establishments must have a form of insurance to protect, help in medical, social cost
    - Workers Compensation Act 1987 NSW (as amended)
    - Workplace Injury Management and Workers Compensation Act 1998 NSW

    Consumer protection and trade practices - protect consumers, governing product safety, product info guidlines - no misleading info
    - Fair Trading Act 1987 (NSW) (as amended)
    - Trade Practices Act 1974 (Cth) (as amended)

    Workplace relations - employment contracts etc min pay, hours, leaves
    - Workplace Relations Act 1996 (Cth) (as amended)

    EEO - elimination of discrimination that cause inequality, establishments over 100 must submit plan over how they can do that
    - EEO (Cth Authorities) Act 1987 (Cth)
    - Equal Opportunity for Women in the Workplace Act 1999 (Cth)

    Anti-discrimination - promoting equality, eridicating discrimination
    - Anti-Discrimination Act 1977 (NSW)
    - Sex Discrimination Act 1984 (Cth)
    - Racial Discrimination Act 1975 (Cth)
    - Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (Cth)

    Privacy - privacy standards when dealing with personal info, covers collection, use etc,
    - Privacy Act 1988 (Cth)
    - Privacy Amendment (Private Sector) Act 2000 (NSW)

    Use these as these are the main ones, and apply them to the hospo industry. There are a few more. Usually when you know what aspect it is from, you an address the question. For eg. if you know its a law regarding environment - it generally involves protecting environment, waste etc. A chef could minimise harm by not pouring oil down sink, etc!

    Message me if you need any further help!
