    Exam Injuries

    I was very pleased with how spread out all my exams were, was great. I experienced very minor dents into my fingers on exam days, which only lasted for a few hours afterwards... only real injury I had was falling down the stairs on the English Paper 2 day. The massive bruise on my ankle remained...

    General Thoughts On The Exam

    Hyper happy with this exam. Was my last one too, as for many, was an awesome way to finish my HSC off. Extremely confident with my answers, all well structured and answered the questions I think (plus their open endedness allowed for deviation somewhat to demonstrate knowledge to our maximum :D...

    German Beginners

    If only Rammstein's new album came out about a week earlier to listen to in lead up to exams. I got it the other day.. pretty good, to me they are losing the charm I used to feel from them. I don't know what's going to happen to Megaherz now either, seeing their lead singer has recently left...

    what irritates you in the HSC exams?!?!

    well if they do your screwed basically. I always write my numbers on each page at the very end, after the guy says 'pens down'. Such a waste of time and distraction from my train of thought to write it in the middle of a question. So yeah.. I'll be sitting there scribbling it on each page...

    Exam regrets (only human)

In Transformations Module for English Paper 2, I was giving textual evidence by quoting the line "A comic pornographer and a rabble of prostitutes." .. although I incorrectly quoted...

    Hows your room?

    hows this, the parents of a friend of my brother paid for her to stay in a 5 star resort for the entire HSC (inc. stuvac). She did pretty well in the HSC I think. I dont think I could take the HSC that seriously.

    The official.."i am so over it"..thread!

    I took two weeks off work before the HSC began (last week of holidays + stuvac) to study. Then 4 days before English Paper 1 I began practising my regurgitatable knowledge (essays) after freaking out heaps and realising I sucked heaps and just farted around in my 2 weeks off. Then the first...

    What are you going to do if your UAI = crap?

    As trillions of people have already said, backdoors to uni are super plentiful. I'm planning to goto Brisbane, and believe QLD's unis are much easier to get into. In NSW, if you goto uni for one year and then decide to transfer to something different, they still take your UAI into consideration...
