I thought it was a really decent paper, nothing too out of the box. There were a few challenging questions, but once I got my head around them I found them to be ok!

In other news, I'm finished HSC forevs!

real poor choice of questions this year, but overall good exam.

EASIEST EXAM SO FAR! I freaked out for nothing ... Though, that last graph in the multiple choice stole 5 extra minutes from me -___-"

I thought it was really hard. But then again I only studied this morning..
Haha
How much did you guys write?
For the Breast and Lung Cancer question i filled the lines and wrote and extra page in a booklet ;l
And also for the Ottawa Charter and Social Justice Principles I filled the lines and wrote another 3 pages (So 4 pages)
Everything else i filled out all the lines
But for my options I struggled with the 12 markers and could only just manage 3 pages of babble... Ahh
I'd be happy with 65/100 in that... Genuinely ;/
Haha. Oh well.

How did you answer the subject and objective one?!
I did like, in order too fully assess and athletes performance both are needed; e.g AFL player; Objective: Amount of goals kicked, Subjective: Technique in kicking of the goal, Objective; Disposals, Subjective: Efficiency of disposals.
I really had no idea;l Haha.

That is way too extreme a 12 marker you're only expected to write 3.5 pages and for a what 8 marker or something you wrote 4 pages? time wasted.

If you knew your syllabus it was quite easy the only question i hated was the one on objective and subjective to improve performance i knew what they were just hard to write on paper. Oh and and on the option (sports med) i forgot what the 'APS' was in TOTAPS so i just made it up, meh i should still get marks. Did anyone else write DRABCD BEFORE TOTAPS? Cause my textbook said you should do DRABCD before TOTAPS so i wrote that.

soooo agree, the 12 markers were just too specific and a minimal part of the options

I just did totaps because it was a 5 marker so they would just expect that :)

DR ABCD - used when injured athlete is unconscious
TOTAPS - used when athlete is conscious

I had it in my notes as well but I only mentioned totaps cause we never went through it in class, my teacher always talked about totaps not drabcd cause that was part of the preliminary syllabus... but I guess yours could be right too :)

My year is sooo competitve and most people wrote a minimum of 6 pages for the 12 markers.. I came out and was like woahh.
Haha, i didn't run out of time, so i didn't waste any time.. I just applied everything i knew, where I could because I knew I wasn't going to go that well in the options.. Haha.
But then again we got given sample responses for band 6 ranges, and for the 8 markers they were all around 3 pages;/?

I had sports medicine also, and sport and physical activity in australia, that option was soo specific, whereas sports med 12 marker was merely based on climate, thought it would cover a larger extent of the option.

I found this exam to be pretty hard =/

Are you guys expecting any state ranks considering how easy you guys all seemed to have found it?
