and how did you have the time?

i think they only look at the first 2 options done and throw out the other two without looking at it =/

Dude, how?

My memory is saying that they will take the first 2 questions you answered. I don' think they will pick you two best, remember they are the BoS and care very little about individuals.

Did you do the sections you were taught at sckool properly.
You can try writing a letter to the BOS and let then know what topics are the correct ones..Dono if it will work....

long story... i kinda didnt read the front of the quesiton booklet... was wondering why i had 6 writing booklets for 8 questions....

i did the topics i had studied well :) but one of those was multimedia which was the 4th question....

it would be fucking shithouse if they used my answer for Automated Manufacturing Systems because that is the only one of the 4 questions i did shit on :'( argh

i dont think writing to them will do anytihng... i mean what is the chance they will actually see it

How the HELL is that even possible, you are given SIX booklets - surely this is a sign that you have to answer SIX questions?

When the 2007 Marking Notes come out, we'll know who they mean when they say 'A small number of candidates completed all questions...' - seriously, you should know this stuff! Option topics are so common in the HSC I don't think there's anyone in the state who wouldn't have to do one. Combined with the six booklets for eight questions thing...

The moral of the story is don't just read the questions, read the directions on how to complete them first ;)

The thing I don't understand is the trials.

There were, to my surprise a few people in our IPT class whom did all questions in the trials. They promptly had the fact that you only do TWO option topics drilled into their heads, and I should hope nobody did all questions on the HSC.

Did this not happen in your trial?

Yeh same here (except section 3), but my point was, that you are always given the minimum required booklets for the paper, so that should be a sign that you only needed to do 6 questions lol.

Each option topics is marked seperately ..
they will calculate your total mark to include the BEST 2 marks from the option topics
