    omg... what are you talking about?

    It's starting in about 17 hours... then we will be in the exam hall doing the Society & Culture exam! We havent done it yet, or has it finished?

    Sparcod, don't freak me out!! I'm still studying for it!

    Why are you asking such a question!?

    I'm asking in advance. This thread will be flooded with replies in around 14 or so hours.

    Good luck Shimmy&shine. You are one of the last to finish.

    I'm wondering why you're freaking yourself out here this early on exam "thoughts".

    wow exactly my thoughts! i don't know about the exam, i normally do really well in society but im never very confident. though it should be fine i thought i would be absolutely ecstatic after this last exam cause its been so long, but now i'm actually sad because i too will miss school. what am i thinking?!
    oh well, a few nasty surprises in the exam but overall...i guess it was ok...

    Re: Society and Culture:General Exam Thoughts

    It was okay. Not too hard, but had some tricky bits, like that "nature of traditional society and culture" = huh?

    BUT it's all over and I couldn't give a rats arse.

    WOOOOOOoooooooooooooooo

    I have nothing to do now

    Re: Society and Culture:General Exam Thoughts

    I have no idea what to think.

    Now that i think about it again, i don't think i did that well... although the ONLY thing that is reassuing me is that the lowest S&C HSC mark last year was 88, only two under band six overall. But i still feel like I've failed.

    Section One: Part 1: Pretty alright, it was clear, and i think i answered it alright. I especially liked the Industrialisation question. All in all, good.

    Section One: Part 2: I thought i could have been more explicit and clearer with the traditiona nature & society of my country, but now that i think back, i think i over generalised and wasn't careful with a few details. I feel like i have just yabbled on and that I haven't answered the question properly. I guess i studied around the social change theories too much. Also though that the second questio was ok, and I had all these things i wanted and needed to say, but when i was writing in the exam, did i write these things?... NO!!! :angry:

    Section two: Both questions: just plain shitty.

    finito... but i don't feel like celebrating. But I'm a over it now, especially reflecting like that.

    "...although the ONLY thing that is reassuing me is that the lowest S&C HSC mark last year was 88, only two under band six overall. But i still feel like I've failed."???

    Yeah theres no way that every student last year got 88 or above. Thats absurd. Especially considering the median mark was like 72.

    Re: Society and Culture:General Exam Thoughts

    ooohhh.. sorry guys!

    I meant all the girls at my school who sat for the S&C exam got over 88. i didn't mean the state. If that was the case, i'm sure everyone would be doing the course!!!

    There are over 30 of us girls (I got to a girl school) who do it, and every year we have at least two in the top ten. Comparatively, quite a large numBer of the grade do this suBject.
