one of the guidelines and notes they drafted for 2008 and released to HSC teachers and students did they?emo-kid-91 said:every time the markers have asked about spartan women, in the notes for the exam they've specifically said you couldn't get full marks unless you talked about women from all the classes. my teacher does hsc marking for sparta and that's one of the guidelines they always get.
exams aren't absolute, if you have made a reasonable discussion on a few key points about Spartan women's roles and status... guidelines for short response don't say "explores roles of periokic women" "makes mention of helot women" "makes mention of Spartan women" etc...
It's more like "discusses three roles of women and describes two aspects of their status in Spartan society"
general stuff like that
emokid, please don't make up stuff like you can't get full marks for not mentioning a specific point... we can quote vague and anonymous amazing HSC marker teachers that agree with our points on this forum endlessly but if you look at the criteria for the 2006 question on women which was VERY similar... I think you'll find the answer.
