    Was that the timeline question? and the impace on society?

    ok i did those questions COMPLETELY different.

    for the colloid one i said to actually complete the experiment - when it turns from a smooth consistency to one of oil on the top (from colloid to suspension) you have gone too far.. basically i said it was a guess and check thing... i felt so smart when i did the test now i feel like an idiot.

    for the timeline one i did RADIO and INTERNET
    radio impacted society because it was a new form of communication
    two way radio led to the discovery of the telephone
    used in wars etc

    internet is an impact
    ppl can work from home
    form of communication
    site of information
    also problems with hacking and exercise levels dropping

    the colloid prac HAPPENINGCHICK described sounded ok but it would be hard to shine light through a colloid of mayonnaise because it is so thick. i doubt the light would penetrate muchat all.. wen we did the experiment we did a colloid of chemicals - not food products.. dont know whats goin on really lol

    i totally forgot wat was the coloid question :S argh dont tell me i missed something.
    for the impact on society one
    i did internet
    - great source of information
    - communication device
    - but loss of social skills
    - hacking

    mobile phones
    - form of wireless communication
    - can be cont3cted in most places
    - but studies have shown possiblities of cancer growths etc

    i thought the blood multiple choice was and it was extrememly wordy i hated that elctromagntetic energy chanceging to eleectrical energy. could of they worded it any harder. and the bloody medication one. wat the hell was 14. argh i lost so many silly marks. i usually do reall well in science but i stuffed up when it counted

    dont worry same here... i wasnt worrying 2 much in this exam.. my raw trial mark was mid 90's (#1 yeah!)and the next one under me was in the 70's. i also did really well in the other assessments and half yearlies.. i thort that i was goin great so i didnt really have anything that i needed to knuckle down and study for...

    i got in there and when WOOOOOT???

    i think i did OK now that i think about it

    BTW i assumed that if you got over 90 it was a band 6? apparently this is just heresay??
    anyone know??

    yeah just remember that if the exam was hard they mark easier ... if that makes sense

    the scaling and stuff is generally better in that case too..

    my mum works at a selective school and she spoke to some of the kids after the exam and they said it was really hard - EVEN the smart kids thought it was hard so that was a big relief!!
    she rang me like 2 minutes after lol

    Red face

    I was the same! most of the stuff i had studied wasn't in there, but i b/s'ed my way through it. Did anyone else do Disasters? i thought that was so hard! much harder than pervious tests i have looked at!
    And of course i hadn't done the experiment, so had to make that one up.. uh oh!

    we did disasters and we did this totally kick ass experiment with air pressure and we got to explode this glass flask cause of the build up in air pressure, glass went everywhere and it was heaps sharp, it rocked so much.

    The crappy thing about that exam was the fact that they were nitpicking on the little insignificant points in the course...the multiple choice...like what the hell was that...much harder than previous years...but the good thing was the fact that we covered everything...luckily...

    i thought the exam was alot trickier than any of the previous tests in the last 3 years. Havn't seen the rest. Usually questions in this subject are alot broader and simpler but this time they were alot more complicated. Hopefully who ever scales subjects up or down can see it was harder and wont scale as harshly. Like most i don't remember doing the experiments except the disasters one, my whole class said the same.
    Does anyone know if this site has that thing like for maths where it tells u how in previous years a mark of say 69 ended up being 79 or band 5?????

    lmao for the disasters option question was the experiment we did when i chucked a hissy fit at my teacher (she called my work 'dodgy') and i swore big time and called her a few not-so-nice things and walked out (well really kicked my way out) and she called after me that that experiment would come up in the hsc...fate sucks!
    i just wrote about playing with a barometer cos we did that once
