Lmao. Well, in terms of time, both went well. I think that both left me around 15 minutes to check every thing...

You slept? Couldn't you just have walked out? I walked out of both exams half an hour before the end and went to Westfield :D

Huh? I thought you could only EVER walk out of a HSC exam after the first half hour but before the last. I had about 25mins left after each test. We certainly couldn't leave :(

We were allowed to leave after the first half hour and before the last 15 minutes. About half of my grade walked out...

I was left with about half an hour for English and fifty minutes for science. It was so boring to sit there doing nothing!

I finished English with 40 mins to spare, and science with 50 minutes

after the exam, the BOS supervisor asks "who finished the paper with more than half an hour to go?" The entire year put their hands up lol. Then he said "I don't think it's really designed for bright young people"

At least tomorrow they said theyll let us leave after were done... though I think civics will take a bit more time than the other subjects

For English, I had about, say, 15 minutes to check? It's because I'm hell slow (but am I good?) at Reading Comprehension and it took me a while to figure out what to write for the silly Hope and Daring essay.

In the Science SCT, I finished it with enough time to double check my answers; all of them and picked up about 5 in the multiple choice.

Oh well, it's just the School-certs. Would be hilarious if someone received a fullhouse of band one in the SC and 100 UAI.
