    Doing EE2 is a marathon effort! No matter what your medium, it is a long crunch of writing, editing and copious amounts of Tea and Coffee. The EE2 forums are a little quiet, so I want to help bolster activity and keep us in communication as you work on your little babies (or in my case, what...

    Did the first exam feel a little surreal to anyone?

    Like all the hype of 13 years, just for another paper. I didn't even feel conscious of the fact it was the HSC, just another examination paper in a long string of papers. Did anyone feel this kind of detached way during it? It was quite bizarre.
