we had a bad teacher and didnt learn much of the stuff that was asked. Our whole class found the last and first essay question hard. I didnt like the short answers to much. The M/C was ok and the ecosystem essay was great...the one thing we were taught properly so it went good.

I'd say that was probably my hardest test out of all the exams i did.

For the urban dynamics one, i read that it asked for at LEAST 2 dynamics, so i wrote about 5 of em as i read it as lots??

And what exactly is the nature of an ecosystem? lol
i thought it was just like where they are located and the animals and stuff living there lol? is that wrong?

And the economic question sucked!!!!!
Same I done urban decay, urban renewal/gentrification, suburbanization, and urban consolidation.

Well is anyone else like me and annoyed. The test for the essays were the same as the 2001 HSC...damn...why didnt i go over 2001 hsc.

2001 HSC questions were:
analyse the human impacts affecting the nature and rate of change of TWO ecosystems at risk.

compare the results of the urban dynamics in a large city from developed world

explain how global changes in an economic activity have affected an enterprise you have studied at a local scale.

what were the other two questions? ecosystems and economic enterprise? ta
ecosystems...'compare the nature and rate of change that affect the functioning of TWO different ecosystems at risk'

eco enterprise..'explain how global challenges in an economic activity affect the linkages and flows of people, goods, services and ideas associated with a local economic enterprise'

hmmmm..the essay questions took me a while to figure out..but in the end was ok..:rolleyes: mc was great and short answer wasn't bad..was it shorter that usual or did i just think so because its my last exam?? lol

I'm good at Geography, although I thought the essay questiosn were both harder than in recent years whiel also bucking the BOS's trends. That being said, I've done good, just not sure how good.

if you wrote about 4 pages for one of the essay, is it bad?
I wrote 21 pages in all,
8 - first
7 - second
and 6 - third

But, I think as long as you answer the question accurately enough, and provide much detail, you should go ok.

For the essays I wrote 22 pages.
Essay 1: 8 pages
Essay 2: 7 pages
Essay 3: 7 pages

I think I'll get around the mid 80s in the exam. I know I got 14/15 on the Multiple Choice.

8. C
9. A
10. D

12. C - This is the question I got wrong. I put B as I was rushing to the short answer and essay sections. And afterwards when looking through the paper I realised my simple mistake. But it can't be helped.
13. B
14. C
15. A

Just noticed that Q4 to 7 spell out ABBA. BOS must have had the movie Mamma Mia on their minds, just jk. :p
