    Re: Exam Thoughts

    i hated pop culture one and the question "is westernisation inevitable".

    I thought the paper was alright, I didn't really like the work and leisure question but it wasn't too bad.

    yeh apparently ours came back to school a few weeks ago and our teacher told us just the other day

    how many pages did everyone write?

    i wrote 5 for popular culture and 6 for belief systems. I did rock and roll and buddhism.
    i think i should've wrote more for the 8 marker. for the 4 marker i did nearly a page and then for the 8 marker i did a page and a half LOL

    Re: Exam Thoughts

    What options did everyone do?
    I chose Belief Systems (a) about the impact of a belief system over time
    and Equality & Difference (a) reducing inequality
    I found it tricky to decide if I should talk about just my focus study or if I should have talked about many belief systems and many disdavantaged groups but I thought they were great questions, hated the (b) options though!

    Did you all have four paged booklets too! I though our school was the only one haha

    i did b) in popular culture and b) in belief systems.

    that institutional power question for popular culture was the best. in class we did a generic essay on it already so it was very lucky it was in there,

    belief systems the cultural heritage on gender roles question got me a bit, but i think i answered it ok

    Re: Exam Thoughts

    the whole paper was great! the westernisation question was the only one that had me just blabbering on about nothing.

    Popular culture q. a) was so good! Allowed you to talk about everything really. And Equal. and Difference q. a) was also great! Very general.

    It's over!! WOO! Burn tonight =D

    Re: Exam Thoughts

    I diiiiiiiiiiiiiiiid:

    - pop culture: rock 'n roll
    - equality and difference: I focused on abodiginals (zoolander, people!)

    I only noticed the "westernisation is inevitable" question in the last half hour ahaha.

    what social theory did you do? I did Karl Marx: conflict theory.

    Re: Exam Thoughts

    I thought the test was fairly good. Before the test my friend said jokingly "They're going to ask about environment and time. Most important concepts ever." I laughed when I opened the paper.

    I did Popular Culture a), uaing examples from surfing and Pokémon because it was a general question, writing a bit over 5 pages, and Equality and Difference b), talking about the aged in Australia, and wrote a bit over 6 pages. I don't know why they didn't give us 8 page booklets for the essays, pretty much everypne at my school asked for extra booklets.

    Smile Re: Exam Thoughts

    it was great! i guessed that they were going to ask about westernisation because i looked at all the past papers from 2001 and they'd asked about EVERY process and EVERY theory of social change except westernisation =]

    so i was betting that was going to be in there!

    overall it was a good exam-thank you bos!

    Re: Exam Thoughts

    I thought it was generally a great exam. I didn't study the concepts or methodologies at all. But I still think I did ok.

    That said, I had to revert to dot points in my two essays (work and leisure and equality and difference). There was just so much I wanted to say, but so little time >.<

    The "is westernisation inevitable" question = great.

    The continuity and change question concerning the theory = fantastic.

    I was expecting a much harder exam with really left of field questions like the trials (and my experience of SAC exams throught years 11 and 12) but every question in the exam was inextricably linked with the syllabus dot points.

    A thoroughly good paper. I rate it 4.5 out of 5 stars.

    minus 0.5 because of the pain in the nuts signing out was. It took me half an hour to get out of the place because of the whole tying all the booklets together with string, but also tying questions where you used more than one booklet together, tying the short answer response and me not being able to comprehend or listen to instructions....

    oh the perils of the HSC.
    If I showed you my signature would you use it against me?
