    Unusally Hard?

    Did no-one else think that was a pretty hard exam? compared to the past years?
    I know almost everyone at my school did. The multiple choice was fine and the essay was fine, for women anyway. But the short answers, i mean...whoa...seriously. they were very left field. what did they mean by elements of dreaming? and changes to Aust religion due to social factors? and ecumencial development? what did everyone do?

    Yeah short answer questions were bloody, hard and really badly worded I thought, I had to reread the one on how has Aboriginal Spirituality contributed to the nature of the relgious expereince two or three times.

    i think i will pass. i thought the short answer questions were very ambiguous and i had no idea what to write, but hopefully, some of the stuff i mentioned gets me somewhere. i need religion to count so im praying for a good mark. i thought the essay question was pretty easy and the multiple choice were fair, but i didnt like any of the questions in the middle, except the ecumenism one and the dreaming elements one.

    mmm well i'm glad to have it over - the multiple choice and essays questions were okay

    aaarrrhhh - the short answers - i didn't like them at all - except for land rights that was okay

    religion and the media section - 1st question was okay - second one kinda came out of no where

    regardless i am sure i passed but deffiently wasn't my best exam

    i agree.. at my school everyone hated the short answer and our teacher (who sets the performance bands for the hsc marking) agreed that they were hard and said that the marking critea would have to be really broad to be able to incorperate everyones answers. the essays were a bit wierd.. not hard but differnt to how i imagined. did anyone else do ethics? that essay was harsh.. i didnt even get to talk about my second religion!!!

    the short answer was definitly harder tahn previous years, and i think the part a.b.c final question in 2001-2003 is much easier than a straight out essay (esp when it only asks for 2/3 rites, that screwd heaps of ppl up, not me luckily)...meh overall a pretty hard test i was a bit shocked in reading time

AND the last question for 1 unit.. about the rites of personal devotion or rites of public worship?? WAT R THE ODDS OF ME ONLY MEMORISING RITES OF PASSAGE!

    i hated the short answer questions. they were worded funny, very difficult to understand what they meant. and i only really remember the rites of passage, i thought they wouldn't specify

    what the?

    that religion exam was nasty.
    was happy about the extended responce 4 teachers and interpreters, cause i knew one better than the other and it did give us a choice. the multiple choise was similar to my trials, same difficulty anyways.
    short answers was evil. in my opinion i neeeded them to be a little more specific, to gaina better understanding if what they were asking. a few questions could have been interpreted differently.

It does not comfort those who have lost their loved ones in floods caused by senseless deforestation in a neighboring country. Peace can only last where human rights are respected, where the people are fed, and where individuals and nations are free." - Dalai Lama

    I thought that people are not allowed to leave within the first hour and also within the last half hour. Because it is 1.5 hour exam that would mean no one can leave...they didnt let anyone in my school leave until whole time was up, but that may have been an attempt to make everyone take it seriously

    like heaps of others i remembered an answer 4 the rite of passage. so i was stuffed in that Q
    also i think the last media Q 4 2 unit was a bit ambiguos and stupid

    i passed .
    this probably sounds like im whingeing but our teacher didnt teach us anything about models and guides 4 ways of holiness, i did some of my own notes from the few sheets we were given, but that still wasnt very much. its a bit unfair that we arent able to do the best of our ability because our teacher was unorganized.

    apart from that little problem, it was ok
