After BOSTES gets the previous years exams uploaded, I usually like to take a look at the "Exam Thoughts" forums to get a feeling for how the students found the exams.
For some reason the participation in the 2016 exam thoughts forums seems to be drastically reduced compared with previous years. Well at least for the subjects in which I'm interested, Maths, Physics and Chemistry.
I'm just wondering if anyone knows the reason for this downturn. Is it a simple lack of interest in post examination discussions this year, or is it due to the rise of alternate mediums for discussion that has caused this?
Thanks Queenroot. I thought that might have been the case.
(Of course, there are seasonal spikes corresponding to more activity around HSC Exam time each year I think, but the overall trend is negative.)
I dont want to sound like a bummer, but i feel like the students who care about education in each year 2015, 2016...etc is gradually decreasing and the general consensus about exams and exam thoughts depreciates alongside with it..

As ive sat my HSC this year i will have to agree with the sentiment that education is not as highly valued as it was before and i would also have to agree with the notion that people prefer posting about their thoughts of tests on facebook and social media opposed to websites such as this
