so basically, it's pity points.

if the markers like "awww.... i pity your stupidity" , very good. a mark or two maybe.
if the markers like "haha loserrrrrr" . 0. someone's screweeed.

and to get back on topic.
i called the conical flask a "cyclic beaker".
0. im screwwwwed.

somehow i get the feeling we should get back to the Science exam...

Da answer can't be accerleration because accerleration is always measured in straight lines nd thereefore it can't be a change in direction.

Well h0lms, da anza is acceleration, by definition.

In physics or physical science, acceleration and is defined as the rate of change of velocity. Man, the question read CHANGE of speed and direction...

well, now that that point is established, what diagrams did you say we should use when explaining the dna thingy?

i said a picture of the watson and crick model of dna

To declare an end to the acceleration vs velocity deba cle/te, acceleration-backers will be pleased to know that my science teacher, when "velocity" was suggested, answered with a defiant "no". If I remember correctly, the answers to the questions 51-60 were (probably in no particular order)

CONICAL FLASK (Teacher said that they probably wouldn't accept "flask" - the instructions didn't note anything about answers needing to be only one word. I read the instructions again and it didn't say anything about writing one word in the boxes provided.)
CONVECTION
ENERGY
OVARY/OVARIES
ACCELERATION
TEMPERATURE
ELECTRON
HYPOTHESIS
NEWTONS
3.5MM

As for those who are worried about spelling? Relax! They'll accept anything that is even remotely phonetically correct e.g. hypothesis can have various spellings that will be accepted - e.g. hipothesis, hipothisis. As someone else mentioned, it isn't a spelliing test.

Now let us restore peace.

was that. "ENERGY" waves? or something?

i'd get pissed.i think i put earthquake.

and thats BULL. i ll just say i couldnt spell energy properly.

i could have written penis for everything and tell them im illiterate.

hmm but i remember quite clearly my science teacher told us that spelling DOES count in that section...

My teacher used to mark SC and said that if an incorrect spelling variation of a word indicates that the pupil knew what he/she was talking about... then they'd accept it. ^^

yea but then this is the computer marking bit. I understand that throughout the test, spelling does not count but in this bit, it does count. Cuz if you think about it, they cant accept any form of the correct spelling. Just say "Energy", they can accept:

Eneigy
Nergy
Enregy
Energi
Energry

but the list cannot go on forever, because there are just too many wrong spelling variations. Thus... Spelling does count in this section (just as my teacher said), and this is the only section that spelling counts.

spelling...the bane of modern society.

spelling has to be the worst thing you can be teste on, including when they're words such as licentious, which youa re probably never goin to use.

#### timlay

##### is gonna lawyer you
think you mean tested? ..or maybe testes?

haha.....

yeah. spelling sucks in a way.

PENIS. yes. i mean PENIS GIVE OFF ENERGY. I KNOW IT WAS ENERGY!!!!!. *shrugS* i doubt it'd work .

#### sikhman

##### altitude rush
some of those questiosn were abnormally weird, and as for the energy thing, it probably doesn't matter...i mean, it was only like 1 mark...

#### fallenstar

##### liberate, educate.
For the 10 questions, I can remember i put the following (not in order):

Convection
Temperature
Hypothesis
Newtons
Ovaries
Electrons
Velocity {i checked that after the exam, YES IT IS WRONG, answer is definitely acceleration}

& i don't remember the other one..

I thought Science was..okay. I'm expecting a band 4/5. {PLEASE, band 5!} But definitely not a Band 6. Because i found some MC hard...& i also think I failed to stretch my written answers to the full 3 marks - like I probably got 2/3 for some, I just couldn't stretch it out in the given space..

But yeah. I think I did well. Plus...I'M NOT DOING ANY SCIENCE NEXT YEAR!! So that was my last Sci exam ever. Thank god.

#### sikhman

##### altitude rush
lol

I guess sc is kind of pointless if you aren't continuing in the subject...

I did so bad in the Science SC that I'm just happy if I get a band 2! It had everything I didn't know in it! ARGHH
