    Secret to achieving 95+ in pdh???

    Hey, I just achieved an external mark of 99 in PDHPE, and my assessment mark was 94 ... Which made for a HSC mark of 97, which I was stoked with! The exam itself wasn't particularly difficult. The main thing with PE is just KNOWING YOUR SYLLABUS. Know the dot points backwards. There are...

    Section III - Personality

    I thought (a) wasnt too bad, nor was it long for a 10 mark Q. My opinion though!

    Estimated Marks

    I'm guessing ... 23/25 for Pompeii and Herculaneum - Not bad questions, the last bit on Excavations might be where I lose some marks 20/25 for Sparta - I could NOT for the life of me remember what a syssitia was!! 24/25 for Hatshepsut - I felt these were the easiest questions. 22/25...

    Can I be the first to say...

    Thanks for coming. Nah well thats overconfidence. The Q on the Building Healthy Public Policy had me stumped for a while!! It didnt actually say that it had to be in effect did it? Like, could you have said for Cancer that banning smoking would be an example? I said for Injury some...

    definitions of conditioning and tapering???

    Tapering is basically where the athlete 'eases off' the training in the days leading up to an event, so as to be in peak physical fitness for the event. Kind of what I am doing regarding studying right now... Conditioning, as in in a training session, refers to 'conditioning' the body; that...

    The great rhetra..what exactly is it?

    Yeah if not too late just to add to this, the Great Rhetra was the system of Government, created by Lycurgus. Its primary purpose was a militaristic Spartan society, highly geared to war. However, keep in mind that it was a gradual process, and that Sparta didn't become a militaristic state...

    Hatshepsut discussion

    Re: hatchepsut - 'evil stepmother' Pwar, read Chapter 11 of the book by Jennifer Lawless (Sorry, forgotten the name). It is the chapter on Akenhaten, and it makes mention of the possibility of his defacing the monuments and inscriptions in order to promote his new god, the Aten. There is...

    anyone else SCREWEDDD for HSC EXAM ancient history?

    Agreed, Ancient is sooo hard to cram. Its one of not many subjects in which I've actually paid alot of attention in class, so that makes it slightly easier. In no way do I wish it were like maths though!! Lets just hope they ask an essay question on the Hyksos, Hatshepsut question on...

    any hints/clues for potential questions in HSC - there must be someone!!!

    I dont think Jakarta Declaration will be a major topic in the exam. Maybe a MC or something, but not an essay. I agree, I think the Ottawa Charters could well be in it - easy marks - as it is a fairly broad topic. I think maybe a question on the Learning Environment for the larger...

    Finding Pd Hard

    Haha don't worry, if I could feel nervous over exams, I would be starting to stress out a bit over PE soon too. Have you got the Excel text book? If so, periodically work through that, remembering the topics, and some basic info on each dot point. You are right, it is a very content...

    Finding Pd Hard

    I'd just like to reinforce the importance of learning the dot points from the syllabus. I don't think its all that hard to expand on them, its just the learning them that takes a while. Once you commit them to memory, learn what they mean, and try and get specific examples (death rates, etc)...

    Vesuvius eruption?

    Just to add a different point of view to this fact, remember that Herculaneum was buried under 18m, compared to Pompeii's 3-4m. A pyroclastic flow doesn't consist of lava. Hence it literally "burnt the flesh off the bone," and as Cem said, skeletons were still found. There was no fire to burn...

    Trial Marks for Ancient

    Cohen mate, you should get mid 80s. I recon you'll beat me haha. I'm aiming at high 80s. Pompeii and Sparta should be sweet ... Hatshepsut might be a little iffy, and NKE is probs my worst part.
