What's the point in having 400 pages?? I had 80 pages and that was more then enough. How can the markers mark something that is 400 pages long? They only have like 15/20 mins to mark each work. It's a waste of your time doing anything more the 100 pages....

well here's a pic for ya hope ya like it im makin a love seat it's made out of pacific maple and it quite nice isn't quite finished yet but will be o the day it has to be handed in just a couple more coats of lacquer. How much does it suck about the scale system i thinkit got scaled down abot 8 last year
Last year I rang the UAC people, they said that my mark of 90 was scaled down to around 60/65 when it went towards my UAI.... Scaling is all in relation to how well every one else in your year does, how well every one in the state does etc... My brothers mark wasn't scaled down as badly as mine when he did his HSC in 2002. Yeah hrmm, I'm lol still annoyed about the scaling lol.

I don't think my actualy HSC mark was actualy that badly effected, I think 90 is what I deserved

lol, i don't care if ur teachers are HSC markers. You don't need 400 pages to get a mark above 90 or a place in the top 10 in the state. And I really honestly believe anything more then 100 pages is a waste of ur time, just think of all the time u could of put into your other subjects which don't get scaled as badly...
An 80 in Maths is better then a 100 in indust tech.

Thats right a person at our school had a folio of around 60 pages and he got a band 6 so doing over 100 pages is just a waste of time and if you have that much it must of been information of no use.

He wouldn't know, they may of given a good impression to his teachers or what ever.
The teachers prety much know who's gonna do well and who's not.
When I did my hsc in a round about way I was told if i did ok in the exam I'd deff get a band 6.

Don't forget the exam guys, cause you can pic up a few marks in that, if your work isn't what you where hoping it to be

i got my folio and project marked by the 4 teachers at the school today they marked all the classes for 50% of the internal assesment....I got 51/60

highest in my class was 60/60

another kid got 53/60 and and another got 51/60

the teachers marks will be pretty close to the hsc mark because it was marked exactly on the hsc mark sheet and the teachers are markers any ways.....

ours are being marked next thursday....they're all sitting in the room waiting...they've blocked out all the windows as well which i thought was odd....

mine slightly wobbles (its an office chair...see earlier for pic)...but hopefully it'll be ok...i put it in a spot in the room where it wobbles the least....

my folio ended up being about 190 pages.....

it was by far the largest in the class....we have 7 ppl...the only other size i knew was 63 pages....and the rest looked alot smaller than that...just in a display folder

will post up more pics later
That looks great. Find someone with a better quality digital camera and post some pictures up. I'd love one of those.

I friend of mine has done an acoustic bass. Looks freaking fantastic. Better than anything I've seen in a music shop. Cost him a pretty penny though. Mind you, it sounds amazing.

Ah, didn't realise. They look pretty good considering they're from a phone. Which model/make have you got?
