Similar to me. I am hoping for 18 at least in SIII depth study, but tbh RE is such a subjective subject you can never really predict. Easy, but seriously retarded subject.

Still fuming about that Humanism q. I hope my answers to the Statement qs were correct.

I think you are right.

I focused more on the 10 point plan as a response to the wik decision and how it made native title harder to prove, hence the room for improvement.
Due to the various answers by the looks of it, I think the markers will let it slide considering it was open up to interpretation.

then did christianity in 50ish minutes :)

9 pages for peace
8 for christianity

I was doing 50 gazillion things at one time, but yeah I'd say each essay was 1 hour, I did Islam really quick too, maybe less than 1 hour. Did 3 pages though, but they're the same essays from the trials really so they're still 800ish words each

I spent ~45-50 on R/Peace and did my 20 mark on Islam with ~1 hr 10 left. I was very detailed in each 15 markers, because that's the discriminator.

I hate that SOR is shitty scaling, because it's not going to save my ATAR even if I get a band 6 :(

Wish I tried harder in internals and externals, and sucks going to a low ranked school too! At the end I have good ranks, but we'll see what happens from here on in.

I'd be happy with a high B5, low B6 to be honest. I'm tied first with someone else, so my internal mark is also dependent on their performance, and vice versa

I did science

I was talking about how certain scientific findings like evolution discredit religious beliefs, which influences new religious expressions to arise/grow (whatever the question was, can't remember) and then went into how they can't trust religion if it's discredited by science, for how can religion validly answer the enduring questions of life (purpose, origin, destiny), talked more etc
I did similar and I also wrote that many scientific processes have proven things that the religious traditions say cannot happen and thus leading to the believer losing faith in their tradition and looking upon new age expressions .. does that make sense to get a mark lol ?

CSSA Trial and this were very, very, very similar.
Yes! Christianity short answer was exactly the same! A few differences in mark value, but that's it.

I figure I did fairly well. Could have done more with Religion and Peace but eh. I'm just happy it's over.

I did either better or just as good as trials, I think.
Trials-
MC: 17/20
Short Answers: 9/10
Depth Studies: 25/30 (ugh)
Essay: 17/20
Peace: 18/20
