    How was the exam this year? There was so much reading to do and it took up so much time, and I wasn't ever going to do good anyway. I dropped it after my trials, go 52%!!! Haha, I didn't really take it very seriously, I enjoyed the content, but memorisation was a pain.

    lol so true - at the end i had used 4 extra booklets - a little bit for each q - and for some reason nobody gave us string so i asked the exam supervisor man for 4 pieces of string and he said "no u cant have 4 pieces there are only 3 questions!" - i then proceeded to explain to him that i used it for the q with an answer booklet and he said "no u didnt" lol. it took a while, but i got my 4 pieces of string

    lol, thats just funny dude! exam supervisors are complete morons. ours yelled at us coz we had like 4 post-its each so we could stick em on the pages to mark the questions so we didnt keep wasting time re-looking em up. i mean, come on, they're post-its. and they said they were cool when they checked our stuff at the door...but not 2minutes later at our desks.
    the power goes to their heads methinks.

    well. Ancient's my fav subject.
    I suppose it depends on the teacher you get I guess..
    I have (had?) a great teacher and these two years had been a load of fun ^^

    i used to hate ancient, but my teacher told us that once we got into it and read a bit more it would become more interesting, and sure enough he was right. by the time my study was done i was full into it and found it mad!! our supervisers dont go through all the pages with us.. we just get "girls, look through your papers and check them out" so everyone flips slowly so we can read our questions while we're doing it. i guess thats common practice though ay?

    I thought ancient was really hard (esp. some of the Society questions and one of the Pericles ones) but i liked it like that....before you say anything, im not a masacist, but if it was easy and something i could have done without the lots of study i had to do i would have been really frustrated. Thats the thing about ancient, you learn (supposedly) so much content, and then they ask you one question, and you forget everything else you have been taught. At least in modern you learn stuff for more of a reason than "...it might be in your exam..."
    I think any subject depends on a teacher - contrary to what youre told at the beginning of high school *HIgh pitched monty python voice* "Dont choose a subject coz of a teacher..."
    There are good teachers and bad teachers - maybe some parrallel between that and good subjects and bad subjects?

    Ancient is the best subject of mine but i had the worst bad luck and stress over it.
    Case 1- My assessment speech was due the next day and some fool decided to take my bag home so no speech. No hours sleep to get it done.
    Case 2- Big assessment I had planned to go home and really study for but my sister had a car accident. No study!

    Plus theres the whole always being majorly sick around ancient exams. I'm glad its over!!!!

    yeah ancient was a bugger of an exam. Hatshepsut's rise to prominance: ARGHHH stuffed that one up. i made it harder for myself and started talking about her legitmisation processes. And the three questions i prepared for the bloody historical periods were all in the same section!! worst luck effer!
    Ne ways, it was so hard chucking all my notes for the exam, i was like "omg i still need those shit!" and my hand was trying to resist the movement to the bin.
    Felt so liberated tho afterwords. After the exam i hugged everything in my line of sight. (bad look in front of ur friends).
