    there was no human rights short answers which kinda sucked coz i studied for that..
    crime was dodgy at times.. but overall it was ok

    I was definitely expecting to give an example of a contemporary human rights issue, I was positive I would get full marks for that question, for those who read my blog, you would certainly know this, lol

    My teacher reckoned maybe 80% of the state would fail/do badly in the short answer section...

    ... Which makes me glad I'm sitting NEXT year's paper. ^^

    i did:
    6 pages for crime
    8 pages for consumer
    8 pages for family

    only reason i was pissed off wit the exam was because there wasn't a human rights question.....and i spent ages preparing for it.......but i used it in my family essay so i'll get over it

    are you kidding? the whole multiple choice was basically on human rights... i found them so tough but i thought the crime was easy... rest was hard... my legal teacher apparently wasnt impressed

    That's because it was a SHIT exam in general. the only questions I was fully and completely prepared for were the 2 focus studies, because they are usually simple and very easy to predict.

    it was a damn tough test whatever anybody says - and the focus questions were very different from previous years so i woudn't say they were predictable.

    My teacher's comment "Hardest legal studies test i've ever seen"
    Other teacher from school "Hardest test of the HSC this year"

    Heres what i think

    Section1:

    That was the hardest MCQ ever, comparing it to the 3 previous tests, this was the hardest, some answers were strongly linked and hard choices, from the looks of the MC answers thread, lots of people got different answers

    Institutionalised inequality? done that before, but didnt expect 5 marks,

    Inquisitorial and adversarial system was a bit of a shock

    first time in 3 yrs they didnt include HR

    Section 3

    First time they had a an article, first three questions was alright but the 4 th 12 marker was absolute shit, reminds u could write countelss stuff but no time

    Section 4

    Ok, both were pretty good questions for once straight out of the syllabus

    A of consumers and B of family were pretty good


    Overall:
    That was the hardest legal test, nothing like the trials 94% internal assessment just got dragged down.... shit test

    they definitely tried to throw us off this year.. for many the exam structure was quite unexpected.

    but like i said b4, i kinda half expected it with my premonitions and all... hehehe but still- i had the feeling it wud change...

    i've actually been really sick for 2 weeks and was stressed about the test.
    then i saw the questions in reading time and was relieved.
    i thought the short answer questions were really good.
    we had learnt those areas pretty well
    i thought the essays were pretty good too..
    only think i didn't like was the last 2 parts of the crime essay.
    :uhhuh:

    my teacher predicted that section 2 wouldnt be on human rights, so we basically learned most of that topic for nothing.

    Cool

    do some of you people write 3 words per page "20 pages" for the essays wtf?
    my hand would literally go purple and fall off and i can write reasonably fast!!
    i agree with quality over quantity!! ur all robots!! lol
    ps. screwed up the ususally human rights section that they felt needed a change of frame to f**k us up lol
