omg... what are you talking about?

It's starting in about 17 hours... then we will be in the exam hall doing the Society & Culture exam! We havent done it yet, or has it finished?

Sparcod, don't freak me out!! I'm still studying for it! :)

Why are you asking such a question!?

I'm asking in advance. This thread will be flooded with replies in around 14 or so hours.

Good luck Shimmy&shine. You are one of the last to finish.

I'm wondering why you're freaking yourself out here this early on exam "thoughts".

wow exactly my thoughts! i don't know about the exam, i normally do really well in society but im never very confident. though it should be fine :confused: i thought i would be absolutely ecstatic after this last exam cause its been so long, but now i'm actually sad because i too will miss school. :eek: what am i thinking?!
oh well, a few nasty surprises in the exam but overall...i guess it was ok...

It was okay. Not too hard, but had some tricky bits, like that "nature of traditional society and culture" = huh?

BUT it's all over and I couldn't give a rats arse.

WOOOOOOoooooooooooooooo

I have nothing to do now :D :D :D

I have no idea what to think.

Now that i think about it again, i don't think i did that well... although the ONLY thing that is reassuing me is that the lowest S&C HSC mark last year was 88, only two under band six overall. But i still feel like I've failed.

Section One: Part 1: Pretty alright, it was clear, and i think i answered it alright. I especially liked the Industrialisation question. All in all, good.

Section One: Part 2: I thought i could have been more explicit and clearer with the traditiona nature & society of my country, but now that i think back, i think i over generalised and wasn't careful with a few details. I feel like i have just yabbled on and that I haven't answered the question properly. I guess i studied around the social change theories too much. Also though that the second questio was ok, and I had all these things i wanted and needed to say, but when i was writing in the exam, did i write these things?... NO!!! :angry:

Section two: Both questions: just plain shitty.

finito... but i don't feel like celebrating. But I'm a over it now, especially reflecting like that.

Yeah theres no way that every student last year got 88 or above. Thats absurd. Especially considering the median mark was like 72.

ooohhh.. sorry guys!

I meant all the girls at my school who sat for the S&C exam got over 88. i didn't mean the state. If that was the case, i'm sure everyone would be doing the course!!!
