I thought it was alright, the extended responses weren't too bad, pretty pleased with the exam.

They were ok. I have doubts about the essays but overall, it was a straight forward exam.

definetly harder than last years but wasnt too bad
didn't finish the essays and was a little thrown by that current and capital/fiancial accounts question. but was ok. mc was good, didn't like the excess of ir questions and stuff. hoping for a low band 6 minimum

Essays were a bit unpredictable (exachange and ESD) but overall pretty easy exam I thought, short answers and multiple choice were a breeze

definately my best exam,
The essay were very predictable (macro,micro these are always in long response)
the balance of payment stuff was pretty hard though
all in all pretty good exam............THANX GOD, NO AWA's........and even better >>NO GLOBAL<<!!!! THANX GOD FOR THAT!!!

>>HSC OVER <<!!!!

Now time to burn all my notes

it was ok i thought, some questions seemed a bit left filedd like the one where u had to 'quote' the table not make assumptions based on, and i think the one about unemployment was a bit odd. kinda guessd the factor market and product market cos actually havnt come across that inthe syllabus for year twelve. essays were beautfiul i wrote 22 pages fr the first and 12.5 pages of exchange rates......

Fair exam i guess......Haven't even looked at other years so really can't compare it but.

But yeah.....essays where dodgily written by me along with dodgy short answers.

micro and/or micro is always bound to be in it. they pick one extended response from each topic.. so in the last topic they can really only ask micro or macro.
