    individual and society

    Yeah, I pretty much agree. It wasn't too easy, but it wasn't overly hard either. I thought the "intimidation" bit of the question was really odd, but I think i managed to work it in by kinda linking intimidation to oppression, and saying how intimidation of society's values and stuff kinda...

    Module C - Powerplay

    OMG. You do like all the same modules as me?? haha how funny. I do Antony and Cleopatra as well.

    Anyone Else Abhore Personality Question?

    I didn't think it was too bad. I did Yasser Arafat, and I pretty much argued for and against the question, providing examples of how certain events shaped him, but also mentioning how, in certain circumstancs, he shaped the events he was involved with. So yeah, got about 6 pages down. I gotta...

    Arab-Israeli Conflict. Worst. Topic. Ever.

    Anyone do this topic for Peace/Conflict section? I'm under the understanding that apparently like hardly anyone in the state does it.. cause it's so damn hard and so damn confusing! Trust our school to choose it. But if there are any fellow A-I Conflict sufferers here... how did you find the...

    Usa 1919-1941

    Yeah I did the government intervention question. I was so happy it was there cause it meant I could pretty much repeat my essay on Hoover/FDR/New Deal which I got full marks for for trials. I basically talked about a contrast between Hoover and FDR's policies, the New Deal social implications...

    So using the materials here, how did you do.

    SO BAD. I swear that was like the hardest general paper like since the course started. Out of all the prac papers... argh that was just so bad. I think i prolly got somewhere in mid 80s. It was hard to mark cause i forgot what i did for some questions n some stuff i got the answer wrong but i...

    General Thoughts - General Mathematics

    OMFG it was terrible. I was so suprised at how hard it was. And I'm coming first in my year (at a pretty good north shore private school as well) = now I'm freaking out. Cause if I did badly, I've screwed up the marks for everyone else. Argh. I'm gonna redo the exam and check my answers from...

    Emma/Clueless, W.B Yeats or Antony and Cleopatra... Thoughts??

    Yeah, I think the broadness of A+C Q kinda freaked me out, and at first I was like, challenged?? how?? omg! but then I managed to pull something outta my ass! haha but yeah i think i waffled a bit as well. I though E/C was my best section. I think cuase the question was a bit more specific I...

    just a question for you english buffs

    Ok. So here's how it works. The top mark that the person in your year who is ranked first gets is the top mark any of you can get as your school assessment mark. = the person who gets the 8th highest mark in the exam is what your assessment mark will likely be. you keep your straight exam mark...

    Section 2 - Who used quote as central idea, who just slotted the quote in somewhere?

    Re: Section 2 - Who used quote as central idea, who just slotted the quote in somewhe First of all, I'd like to say I thought it was heaps dodge that the BOS couldn't even be bothered to think of their own quotes for stimulus, they had to steal them from the texts we had already analysed in...

    Imaginative Journey: Unexpected Destinations

    Yes!! I did On Giants' Shoulders!! Haha I thought our school was like the only one in the state which did it! It's so crap. What did u write for unexpected destinations? I kinda blabbed on about how they didn't expect to reach these great achivements and they were just normal ppl etc etc.. and...

    Anyone thinks they have killed the test

    I thought it was heaps good! Smashed it! haha. Section 1 = 9.5 pages (hardest by far) Section 2 = 12.5 pages (hard to adjust story to stimulus, but think i managed ok) Section 3 = 11.5 pages (random q, but turned out ok) Much better than I expected, so I'm happy! :)

    General Thoughts - English Paper 1 2007

    Overall, I was actually quite pleased, and surprised as well. I was expecting it to be SO much worse! Section 1 - 9.5 pages I thought this was def the hardest section! Text 3 was whacked, and took way too much brain power for my liking to properly understand. I thought the big 5-mark question...
