Seriously, a five year old could have done that exam..
Was a joke I'm sure everyone would have scored in the 80-90s unless you were unconscious during the exam..

Ahaha yeah I aced it :D So happy right now :D :D I wrote 6 pages for each extended. How many did you write? I was so happy when I saw all those software and hardware questions in section II instead of OHS :D made my day so much better.

lol at multiple choice. There wasn't any trick questions :)

easiest exam every :D

So I wonder what the aligning will be like for this exam?

Last year only 1.46% got band 6

But I still think there would be people out there who stuffed up on certain questions. Some people probably didn't even study for OHS at the end or knew about open-source stuff. I reckon my paper is band 6 worthy, unless it gets marked extremely hard and pulled down by my school's average to be like a 89 or something :S

btw that was the 2008 exams descriptors.

Yep, all done in report format and you should be fine. Loved the shake the computer bit; think some teachers at my school WOULD do that.

I'm also thinking the majority of people who are doing the course are drop kicks who are just doing it because its easy(however know shit all). For someone into computers like myself and I'm assuming a lot of people on this forum its all common sense.

The only question i wasnt sure about was Q10

A client has requested a list of users who have accessed a file
which of the following would contain the correct info;

a) Audit trail
b) hacking log
c) version control
d) file permissions

I choose A since I thought it was most correct however its still a bit vague.

true but would just using common knowledge answers be marked as high as if you would have wrote it as it says on the syllabus?
