Can anyone tell me if Menzies and the Communist Party Dissolution Bill would have been valid for the Prime Minister bit?
Well it did get reviewed and rejected in the end. I don't really know, it could have had an impact.

history was plain hectic, mc was really easy and the last section's questions were very predictable. I hope those markers mark me well.
Band 6 material (hopefully)

it might be correct though, im not sure. even if it's not correct, they'll probably give you some marks for having some info? haha i dunno...

For policy, I wrote Whitlam and the abolition of conscription.

As for the Communist Party Dissolution Bill... I dunno... it's a bit iffy... They might accept it, they mightn't. I hope they do, for your sake :)

Yeah, I don't think we were meant to go over, because when ym friend asked for more paper the supervisors said that they weren't allowed.

I learnt long ago that teachers are looking for you to express yourself clearly and concisely (English teacher told me) But then... that might only be for English =P

I think you can, if you link it into a policy like communism.

We had to do an assignment on a politician and one of their policies. Our teacher said that communism is the main policy for Menzies and that the dissolution Bill could be used. I think if you mentioned other things as well, you should be fine. If you're not I'll go bash my history teacher because I did it too.
I.. didn't mention other things or link it, but only mentioned the steps involved with the Dissolution of the Bill and its effects on communists.

Goodbye 6 marks, wish I knew you better.

The extended responses were much easier than expected, but I couldn't fill up all the lines for the 15 mark response. Some multiple choice question were abit challenging.... but I suppose I went pretty well overall.

serious? the supervisers at our school told us not to hesitate if we needed an extra writing booklet and our teachers encouraged it before the exam (when they were giving us tips in class)

Yeh! Compared to the other tests I've seen, this year seemed much easier! I think its because of the new syllabus and it was only the yr 10 stuff this year! THANK GOODNESS! good 4 us =D

Definitely! I was soo relieved that the extended responses weren't bout Aboriginals... a topic I was least confident about.

Hmmm... or supervisor kept telling us we shouldn't really be writing more than the lines we've been given to answer the question.

You'll prob just end up losing marks if you blab on and on bout irrelevant stuff.
