WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT?!
FAR OUT. At our school the students were refusing to do it and it dragged on to like 3 until we get to do our exams and got out at 6.30 pm
The most ridiculous thing ever. EVER.
They filled out a misadventure form for us as a group and we are going to appeal.
Now, I cbf to read every page of the thread, but I think this is absolutely hilarious
From what I know the question as... this is a preliminary dot point (and may well have been word for word). Now BOS has the right and written in the guidelines and rules to test Preliminary work and syllabus knowledge - they just tested the preliminary dot point and expect you to combine basic Year 11 knowledge with some HSC in depth study of it as well (but not a great deal will relate ).
It's just bad that 2009 HSC I have seen as the guinea pig year for all new tests... really, you guys have copped a lot of changes all throughout + the exams are quite different.
Bad luck on the question, but this teaches you to revise over your preliminary notes to some extent.
Look, all year 11 preliminary work and knowledge - I know this stuff off the top of my head since it's pretty easy to memorise and is kinda fresh from end week before the holidays...well i did judaism and this is how i did it:
1st body: discussed God's love (talked about his benevolence in the old testament, giving rebecca+abraham a child, saving the israelities)
2nd body: talked about rules and laws of judiasm --> torah, talked in depth about the miztvot (613 laws of purity, sexual conduct etc)
3rd body: talked about the covanent with God as a symbol of his undieing love for humanity
4th body: talked about significant practices that are associated with Gods law --> marriage (didnt go in depth) and how its not only professes love between a husband and wife, but with God aswell and i discussed circumcision and how it is a fulfillment of the covanent
5th body: connected the rules and the love discussing how it guides the life of an adherent
i think alrigth considering i started studying for it (from scratch) at 10am this morning; essay was abit convoluted and repetitive though
