    To those who are considering to do this subject

    I already completed the HSC for this subject so I can tell you my opinion about it.

    It's boring like seriously. Even if you're interested in computers, you still have to learn the boring bits to it such as communication, OHS, policies and procedures etc.

    It is one of the lowest scaling subjects. Out of 50, I think it's a mere 25? Doing this is the same as not doing it if you're doing 12 units in Year 12.

    My computing teacher left out a large portion of details when he was introducing IT as an accelerated HSC course to us. He didn't tell us that it's not counted towards the 12 preliminary units, making most of us have only 11 units thus ineligible for a preliminary certificate.

    Re: To those who are considering to do this subject

    Personally I think it's a pretty good subject, in my case anyway...it's so fuckking easy?

    I got 89% for the preliminary exam and I don't have a book for the subject, it's common sense which is what IT is.

    Work experience was at a net cafe on george st where i played games, and we play dota every lesson..it even says in the syllabus outcomes that BOS takes it as pressumed knowledge and what they do test you on is cake.

    It also gives you a certificate that is recognised at tafes for so many months into IT courses if you're thinking of going into IT.

    same!

    we have no theory lessons which makes it so hard to study

    and plus i am sick of hearing 'if you do everything in the modules and i read it you will be fine for the HSC' from my teacher.

    I WANT THEORY LESSONS!

    i want to be able to look back and be like yep thats easy yep. Because i can't 'wing' the HSC.

    We don't have theories. Although apparently we just need to know the information on the modules. Which we can get to on our Intranet.

    Most the stuff in the exams we've had for it I know anyway, so I'm set mostly. But yeah. Stupid legislation things and that I'm like wha??

    Can't you just refer to the modules on the intranet? Use the information on them.

    Haha yeah same! My teacher is also boring, she has this dull tone and sounds like someone sucked the life out of her.

    Which is why i swapped it for maths, thank gosh. I heard around 10 people dropped it after i did, so baha. Sucked in for the people who are still doing it.

    Re: To those who are considering to do this subject

    IT was one of the best subjects I did. A complete bluge, play a lot of games, never get any homework, still get taught heaps of new great stuff, and best of all, go walking around the school fixing everything like you're important

    And you get an IT Cert level 2 at the end! As well as awesome work experience.

    And of course, I did 12 units, so IT didn't count towards HSC.

    Yeah It's an easy course. I don't think it will count towards my UAI or anything coz I'm doing multimedia which will count....

    At least you get a certificate out of it.

    Re: To those who are considering to do this subject

    i dont think its that bad, its just the damn OHS that makes me angry, its great if you want a subject that does not require to much studying unlike maths or economics.

    Economics not requiring much study?

    I think you're mistaken.

    Economics requires a lot of studying, although the prelim course doesn't.

    Don't forget you need to know current statistics, sources and such for Economics.

    As for Mathematics, it needs to have study also. You need to repeat doing questions so that you can be able to do it. Practice makes perfect.

    OHS is common sense, not really hard or takes a lot of study.

    It's not an arts class, as long as another person can understand what it is - that's fine.

    Re: To those who are considering to do this subject

    I dunno what u guys r all worried about with the UAI, IT is a great subject, and yes quite easy, doing well in the subject will get u a good UAI.

    My brother got a UAI of 96.05 with IT included because he sucked at business studies.
