I just found out at about 11pm tonight .... wow so it wasn't just me who found that crime section so hard oh shite....! I just fricken hope that my uai will scale up wise... if not ... what should i do??? Seriously the BOS ...what are you guys thinkin??? Firstly the English Paper, then maths then what LEGAL STUDIES...ur bull crappin me!!!!...and now just checked the syllabus... any f***in thing to do with juvenial crime .... what kind of crime paper was that...!!!Smartie87 said:any one else find this to be bullshit? i applied as much of the syllabus content as i could but not enuf for 19 marks. its not fair either way to ask a question so pathetic as that when clearly, there could be advantages held by ppl who actually studied this for their special study
Firstly, do you really expect the Board to answer personally every single e-mail that they receive? Secondly, if your complaint was very similar to others, it makes sense for the Board to issue the same response.goan_crazy said:Where I emailed
I got a reply with an attachment which is exactly what someone else
the board has obviously prepared a response to send everyone.
The document was called legal studies update
well they can go and F*ck themselves. I am ranked first in legal and I walked out at the end of the exam nearly crying coz of such gay questions. Can you imagine how the rest of the class must have felt?Smartie87 said:I Just Spoke To A Lady From The Marking Centre At The Board Of Studies And She Said That Only A Small Amount Of People Have Complained, And That The Question Was Included To Distiguish Between The Better Students, And Those That Are Only Average!!!!
Get Signing That Petition People, So We Can Turn This 'small' Group Of Complaints Into Full Scale!!!!
yeh i kno how u feel... im ranked first too and was like wat the.... but i burnt out after the trials and havent really done much since then, so i wasnt upset... however if that ques was in my trials i would have had a breakdown lolredbloodedwoman said:well they can go and F*ck themselves.

well actually i do expect them to get rid of part c & d. Its their responsibility to provide a sensible question/s for us to answer, having failed to do that, they have no choice but to rectify the shit they have stirred up. Seriously, one year to come up with a question and that was IT? Lol,rnitya_25 said:ok, it was a really unfair question, alot of people agree with that. but realistcially guys, what do you expect the board to do? take out that question entirely? give everyone full 19/19 for it? serously, be practical.
I'd be really carefull with such generalisation about studying just one night before the exam. Alot of peple like my self DID study and could not apply the knowledge they gained by studying crime. Yes I do have common sense and yes I had to use it during the exam, while answering crime. But if that was the point of the exam, to test logic rather than knowledge, wtf was the point of wasting one term on crime? I think you're missing a point here, alot of people aren't pissed off here because they had to "think", its because they couldn't apply anything other than "crimes act" to the question. That is why BOS should rectify the problem.scrump88@hotmai said:The Board of Studies isnt covering their asses, and I'm sure and they are not incompetent, im sure if the question couldnt be asked it wouldn't be, unlike some peoples study it isnt done the night before, jsut becasue you did legal studies in your HSC doesnt mean you know the law.
