i thought this test was hard actually to be honest, the MC was alright...pretty sure i got 17...but went a bit downhill for me after haha

it was a lot of general knowledge, like that epidemiology question: you wouldnt have to do bio and you could answer that, or the technology X and Y question

yea there were little tricks, and CSSA paper was easy this year, just i didnt read questions properly haha

I think 2010 was a LOT harder, especially the 7 marker. The 7 marker was extremely difficult last year - when you're under pressure. Communication last year was also harder. This year it was quite broad (although causes me difficulties for being concise!)
Yeah, the epidemiology very bias for the PE students. Although, we were expected to know it, so it isn't like it came out of nowhere.

worst feeling after exam when you walk out and i'm like "yea i spoke about this, this n that", and like 3 other people spoke about something different...shattered

yea 2010 was hard, under pressure especially...i thought communication this year was alright but (u do communication?)

i just hope 75 does align to 88-89, id be so cheerin'

same here. haha. I did communication but made mistakes here and there. I was tossing up between what was B - I though it was a dendrite and KNEW it wasn't a nerve. I wrote dendrite but the next question was 'what was the role of B' and I was like. the syllabus asks us to know the role of a nerve...so maybe its a nerve...even though i KNEW it wasn't a nerve. argh.

ahaha, yea it was dendrite! you know for the X and Y technology i put X a thermometer...apparently it wasn't -_-

communication is hectic but, i look at all the other options and they look so tedious and boring

december 14 but, moment of truth hahaha

that's right!!
dam too bad there isnt half marks. I crossed out dendrite with like just one line :p and i was brainstorming possible labels coz i literally just blanked!! also I thought dendrites were only on the bottom. Whoops. haha.

Yeah, I only knew what X and Y was because we used them in Year 11 for a study on the environment (A local ecosystem) so i think it was a thermometer probe and a data logger. maybe they will accept thermometer though I don't know...

wow, you reckon this test was harder than 2010 paper? i found 2010 challenging, but 2009 was easy
I based my prediction off 2009 results. This paper IMHO was significantly harder than 2010 paper. I did the 2010 paper and got ~91/100 raw with an hour to spare.

IMO, this paper was much harder than any other paper I've done (including trials from different schools, etc). I was hoping for a band 6, now it's impossible. Time to cry in my little corner now....

Quite possibly mate - because it was a difficult test hopefully they drop the band levels - i can honestly see 72 being 5 five - ban6 79-80
