Yeah, I do this, it is the most easiest, boring topic eva, I got 95% in my exit exams, but everyone else in the class is so dumb they get like 80% and lower so I am first in the class and have been since the start!!!
Have to agree with politik,
There is alot of uses for this course. Having worked in the industry and had my own business it help to realise what the expectation are and the relevance of the course.
Don't dimiss something worth while, your even getting a cert II out of this. VET is a privelage.
I have to agree with what everyones saying about this subject.
Its not boring.
It actually gets you somewhere in life.
Its a pretty easy and down to earth subject where most of it is basic knowledge.
Yet, if you find it so boring, why bother signing up for it.
Maybe you should have went around asking whats involved before choosing it.
My teacher hand feeds my class all the information and if you were even half bothered you would go and actually try searching for yourself some resources to actually pass this subject!
You need to consistently like anyother subject apply yourself to this course otherwise say goodbye to the 1st in state that you want!
BTW my trial mark was 94% and i studied the notes on the hsconline website 3 hours before the exam, i never wrote notes on this subject i read and then do practice extended response questions, email them to my teacher and have her provide feedback.
the truth is if you don't do well of course it will scale you down
if you get band 3/4 for most subject it will automatically scale you down
of course this subject won't scale high like maths
this subject is very helpful and it will overlap if you doing any other subject such as design or business studies
one of the reason students are doing badly in this subject because they don't have enough resources such as additional materials and most importantly computers.
You need to practice a lot in certain areas such as petty cash, invoice etc.
if your teacher can't teach, go to http://www.hsc.csu.edu.au/ , the site follows the syllables extremely well and basically you can self-taught using that website.
but i'm not sure the site will change in future due to the syllables is changing next year.
anyway i heard this year exam is gonna be hard, my teacher said the exam pattern goes one year is easy, one year is hard and this we getting the hard one
you can tell by looking at the past papers
i would not recommend staying away from the subject, unless you truly did not enjoy it.
half the skills you learn aren't just useful in business admin environments but a range of working environments.
i read someone saying that people do poorly because of a lack of resources that's why there is mandatory work placement and students should take full advantage of the practical application of what your learning.
plus anyone taking the subject (i think either) next and onwards or after next year will only get tested on 8 units of work in the exam in comparison to the 14 unit we have to learn which im not to happy about lol.
My biggest problem with this subject is that I do it at TAFE- basically all of the modules are pass/fail which means i have never been given a standard test in which to gauge my abilities on. We did the trial, but apparently its TAFE policy now to not give us our marks, so I never found out if I did well or not.
For our 'assessments' we used to do them, give them to the teacher and she would show us what we did wrong, we would change it and then get a 'pass'
