Re: It

anyone answer section 3 as a report style??

are we supposed to? because I didn't! :confused:
I didn't write in report format but I doubt they'd crucify you over it, we may lose a few marks but I don't think it'd be a horrendous amount.

Re: It

It's going to be interesting to see the number of band 6's this year...hoping I got in there, and that I don't get crippled by the downies that decided they would sit the exam.

Re: It

Also historically Band 6s are very low

2001 0.07%
2002 0.05%
2003 0.65%
2004 1.01%
2005 1.34%
2006 1.15%
2007 1.81%
2008 1.46%
2009 1.02%
2010 1.74%

Percentage is gradually increasing however It's interesting that its so varied. The percentage for standard English band 6s is always around .02%.

So maybe the exam paper has been made easier to try and increase this percentage? Even so it doesn't make sense though since I thought the aligning process is meant to make these figures more consistent?
possibly because the student candidature for I.T is increasing per year now. It was like 1700 something last year this year it was 2044.

Its a percentage though, not the totally amount.

My theory is that the internet has gotten more people interested in computers, the internet has further allowed those people to develop there skills potentially resulting in the higher marks. Most of the skills which are tested in the exam can be learnt easily if someone has a nature interest and talent.

Since the internet was not as prominent or accessible back in the 1990s and early 2000s this has resulted in less people gaining a personal interest in IT.

No. Your mark would be scaled or aligned based on the year you sat it.

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..
What were some of the questions?

Re: It

You wern't meant to write section 3 in report style. The question didn't specify it.

It didn't specify any format. It was an open ended choice for the format.

Re: It

I too wrote in report format after seeing it was pretty open. Wasn't sure if it was correct to do so but whatever. IT probably won't go towards my ATAR anyway since I do 13 units.
Wrote 6 pages for section 3. Can't remember about the other one though.

Lol it was sweet as man, so much better then getting shitty spread sheet questions or those discrimination ones or free mouse pad ones. Every question in this I.T exam was logical and straight forward if you knew your stuff.
