no one at my school left the exam early.
we all frantically wrote until 4pm.
i brushed up the multiple choice and the short answer in about half an hour, so i had an hour and a half to do the extended responses, and i used every minute of it. and they will still be my downfall, i hate reports. grrrrr

I thought it was an easy exam aswell - I'm predicting over 90% hopefully.

For that question I put that it was set as a background image, I didn't even think of the term watermark.. That's what you get for being a web designer.

For the solvent question I put that solvents hsould be kept in proper storage, because they were told to keep them in their desk drawers.. Which sounded more ludicrous than the actual act of cleaning things with solvent.

I've always had soooo much time left over in IT exams, so this time I went all out with the extended responses.. I wrote a booklet and 1 page for Q22, and a booklet for Q23. I tried to include every possible thing they may have been looking for.

I'm glad this exam was so easy, as it's the only one I really care about - I'm not going to uni.

lol I feel like an absolute idiot for saying this, but I actually found the whole paper to be a bit more challenging than normal EXCEPT for the extended responses... I did an extra two booklets for both the questions and still had 30 minutes left. There's something wrong with me lol.

Eh, I aced it. Ended up writing about 20 pages for section three, but I was writing 'til the bell. I took a bit of a break after section two though - I was tired - then spent about 5 minutes planning my section 3 responses.

Hey yeah i agree wih the majority here, the test was piss easy. Multiple choice was easy, usually the multiple choice questions we get are fucked up ones where theres like 3 answers that could easily be right but you have to pick the "best answer" but none of that shit in here, it was all pretty much straight forward. Extended response was pretty easy to, did the first two options and did a full booklet for each. Short answer ones were mostly pretty good except for one or two which were a bit difficult but i think i got it mostly. Hey what fdid u guys all put for the 3 formatting changes (orientation, graphics, and text) and the three text changes? I used orientation changed from portrait to landscape, image set as background watermark, text one smaller font size (dunno if that goes here or text changes)

For text changes first i put order of the dot points was changed, there was a spelling mistake corrected (Ccourses to Courses) and the third i put font size again coz i couldnt think of any more

was I the only one that couldnt see all 3 text changes?
i spotted 2,
- IT was changed to information technology in dot points
- just before dot points in first one was "they are are:"
and my third one which i dont know if its right was
-the dot points are changed into alphabetical order


as i said before i think ALOT of people would have missed the "they are are:"
as i read somewhere, people read words as shapes and thats why alot of us don't pick up spelling mistakes etc because we already expect what it says.
i only picked that up because i went through it sentence for sentence and when i saw it i was like ha!

For the text differnce i put the font face was different, image i put it had been put as a watermark behind the text and layout it had changed from portrait to landscape.
Three text changes i did was "Ccourse" to "Course", Ascending order for Bullet points, and an abreviation of IT was changed to Information technology.
Short answer questions were piss easy, multiple choices were also easy and for long answer i did question 21 which was ok and i also dif question 23 which i prolly stuffed up!
English paper Two to look foward to now!! :rolleyes:

i do maths, and if you have something that = 100% divided up you pie graph it. bar graph doesnt show results as clearly that way.

i knew carpal = wrist injury :| what were q 14&15?

I'm seeing these posts saying "OH NO! I f'd up this question! I said (something) and the answer was (something else)", and I'm thinking how I BARELY got it right just by noticing/remembering minor details. It makes you think how the exam wasn't really a good indicator as to performance in the subject.

The extended reponse was a real bitch of a thing. I chose the last two ones, and I figure that I screwed them up big time. Somebody in this topic said that they wrote 2 booklets for one question, and I'm trying to figure out where you can get that much material :S.

With the ease of the multiple choice and short answer questions, I imagine that the extended response will be the real descriminator of the exam
