After all that, 2 years, then to get two of the easiest tests for physics and chem (ok I lost a few marks on chem since I forgot the alkane reaction equation & my final option answer may have missed a little - despite being 3 pages).

It really sucks IMO. It kinda makes you feel it all wasn't worth it...

i half agree with you...
yeah it does make it feel like a whole lot of work came to be worth nothing. But they're never going to examine everything in the course in 3hrs so thats always going to be the case.. and yes its bad because you start getting into the realm of differentiation between cadidates not based on how good they are at chem but on how many little mistakes they made or minor inaccuracies in their expression. so yea i feel a bit cheated
but on the other hand i'm glad i did well and i'm glad its over and i don't really care about it anymore!!

It feels like it was such a waste of time studying for some of my exams like bio being so broad, but at least these questions were more specific. and hooray for no fertiliser questions!:D

i feel cheated becoz out of all the stuff i studied...virtually none of it was there! I know i never pass exams but i mean this was hopeless, the test may have been easy for those ppl who know their stuff but i thought it was stupid...there was one 6mark question that i knew nothing about... everything i wrote in that exam was a load of bs...i walked out with just under 2hrs left it was that bad

everything's relative. As it is, everyone found it easy, so they're going to mark it very hard. Maybe some of you should stop counting your chickens before they hatch and bragging about how great you're going to do.

I don't see why you'd feel cheated, as far as I can see the exam was completely in the spirit of the course and was similar to last year's in format. The questions weren't technically very difficult, but that simply means that they'll use a ridiculous metric to discriminate between candidates. I thought I answered well, and most people seem to think so too, but the markers will certainly find something you could have done better.

come on peoples

ok, so the questions weren't killer hard, but i've studied pretty hard and thought many were challenging, i mean maybe the broad answer was basic but remembering all the detailed equations etc isn't a walk in the park.
are we complaining about how easy a test is, its fairly simple guys, if you do a test well, thats a good thing.
celebrate, don't complain. ;)

i actually didn't KNOW KNOW all the stuff all that well, and i thought it was relatively easy, well most definately compared to our trials.....or maybe that was cause i didnt' study for them.....either way, it could have been just a little bit harder.

the scaling for chem is supposed to be relatively high....but if we all go great, then well, there goes scaling....


actually i was really worried for phys and chem, and to find they were as easy as that!?!?! what was i worried for.....
