    Legal Studies: Wtf?

    Wat the hell was with the legal test, they completley CHANGED Section 1 and what questions were asked. Section 2 used a NEWSPAPER article, which it has never done and had a TWELVE mark question.

    did anybody else find this absolutley shocking?

    Change is good but in this case not so good. That 12 mark crime question screwed me up a bit. I left it to last and dribbled on about stuff most probably irrelevant to the question. Oh well. Section III was pretty good though.

    No too hard. M/c was fucked as usual. Short answes I was expecting Human Rights but handled them well. I had prepared essay plans for both Family and Workplace - exactly the same quesions (conflict/cooperation). So not too bad, but I think heaps of people would have struggled but I'm expecting 90+.

    multiple choice was a total bitch.
    the section one thing was probably quite likely, theyd asked all the law in society multiple choice stuff and all the short answer human rights stuff so i guess it was time to swap it around.
    lucky for nsg, the twelve mark crime question was in our trials.
    and when are they going to stop asking effectiveness?!! i was so hoping for law reform.
    plus i thought the newspaper format was fine.. different, but no problem.
    but multiple choice took it up the ass.

    ....They werent pre planned essays, they were just plans and to the exact same questions. They won't own me......And how the fuck would they know. I didn't write "These are pre-planned essays. You own me."

    Crime: 12
    Family: 13
    Workplace: 13

    ...10-11 words per line.

    I found the paper quite unexpected, but I'd been scared that they'd decide to change it all for us so not completely horrifying. I guess I braced myself for it. I hated the multiple choice though. Randomest questions ever!

    My teacher was not very happy. It was a strange examination but I don't think it was that bad.

    The 2x5 mark questions was a good idea. Mostly because I knew the answers to those :P

    exactly ^^

    i believe quality over quantity. this boy in my class who is coming first had 6 booklets, so i can imagine how much he wrote...

    i write enough as i need & i'm happy with how i approached the exam, considering i'm not a "studier".

    My theory is: the standards packages say the exemplars and B6s are into 2nd booklets, so do that :P

    yeh, the exam was weird in that regard...

    but what was funny was- i told my friend just before the exam.. i bet that there isnt gonna be a section on human rights where we have to do short answers on it this time..
    and not only that, i went further to say that i bet it will be on the whole law and justice thing focussing on the notions of justice!!!

    shes like nah! they cant do that!! and i was right!!!

    ooooo i have the gift of foresight!!!

    but twas very strange.. i must admit

    Yeah I was thinking about looking into the differences of common and civil law systems (luckily my friend asked me ages ago about it and I remembered most what I'd told him), but I so didn't think it would come up because I don't give a shit about civil systems, being an Aussie and all. I'll probably only get 3.5/4 marks for it though.
