Very good! Finished like with half an hour left! Extended response questions were a breeze :)

There was this question where you had to conclude from the Source. I narrowed down to:

b) Most White Australians didnt think Aboriginal Australians should have rights or something
c) There was no government policy change through this period.

I answered the "Most white people didn't think aboriginals should have rights" or something, I think.

very predictable test, very easy and very fair - nothing was really left out, like in my trial sc there was no mention of prime ministers so yeh.. im so relieved that the ext response was on vietnam.. weve been doin that 100 times..

Same. None of the answers seemed to quite 'fit'. I was after a "whites didn't think aboriginal people could take care of themselves" or something.

I got that the policies hadn't changed for that question.....
I thought the test was very fair and not too hard.....hopefully what I wrote was band 6 material :)

Hm...

They were both alright. Unexpected questions because I was sort of expecting a list of topics we could write about. Needed more paper but just squeezed every thing in...

As for that question,

b) Most White Australians didnt think Aboriginal Australians should have rights or something
c) There was no government policy change through this period."

I got C... simply because the assimilation period was from 1950s to 1965, LOL.

I do not like modern (especially Australia) History. Even my teacher thought it was a bit hum-ho. Time to burn my history books and notes. YAY!

Ohhmmyy76&*&&(*&)_.

Can anyone tell me if Menzies and the Communist Party Dissolution Bill would have been valid for the Prime Minister bit?
