Wow, was it really that generic? I wonder why I struggled with it then haha. I did talk about identity but I'm just not happy with how I went today. Well, life goes on and on a positive note, there's 60% left so I should probably stop thinking about it! :)
I don't think so. Our school does that as well and from memory, all schools have to do it to show the standards of their students' work. So if the BOS wants to see what a 20/20 response would look like at a certain school, they can do that. Sorry if this wasn't very helpful! :)
I'm going to disagree and say that you shouldn't do the UK for your case study. It's better to choose a developing economy because from what I've heard, sometimes there is a question in the HSC about growth and development. It's much more obvious with developing economies.
