Same here, ours are in week 3, and I think you meant "re-cramming", since we would have crammed for trials too.bobness said:term 3 week 4 doesn't seem that early?
our ones start week 3 term 3
and even then when its all over (week 4-5) that'll only leave about 9 weeks or so to cram in everything i've learnt for the past year
The CSSA does say what you have posted but it says more than that:Actually, whilst some schools do use the CSSA trial papers at a later date then specified by the CSSA timetable, it is against the terms and conditions set out by CSSA.

YEAR 12 TRIAL HSC EXAMINATIONS
Please note the conditions of supply of CSSA Trial HSC Examination papers for 2006:
• Papers scheduled for BOTH WEEKS must be taken at time/date specified. Rescheduling of papers prior to the nominated times is not permitted.
The CSSA trial exams do not have as much security as the HSC exams. It is usually up to schools to take care of those issues.biggie walls said:Just a question about Trials:
I asked my Business Studies teacher if we were doing the CSSA Trial and he said no we are doing one written by the school... reason being that last year there was a dilemma with the CSSA papers - apparantly the questions got out before the exam dates? Is this the 'Cheltenham Girls High' issue or something else that happened?? He said he could not rely on the 'security' of the CSSA paper??
Im kind of annoyed that we arn't doing the CSSA paper - the test questions seem to be of a good 'standard' - most similar to the HSC.. also - there is past papers we can do as preparation.. My school generally sets wonky tests with highly ambigious questions.. anyway all I can do is study and try my hardest!!
I haven't seen it occur with the CSSA paper but have come across this occuring with the Independent paper.A l said:The CSSA trial exams do not have as much security as the HSC exams. It is usually up to schools to take care of those issues.
One issue that was rumoured about the CSSA trial exam is that many tutors also purchase the paper and hence some may resort to indirect cheating when they receive it. This is just a rumour and I have no idea if it is true or not.
WOW that is rather early to have trials, you must of had your half yearlies early also....good luck!bottle01 said:OMG...our school's trial is in 2 weeks...starts on the day after Queen's birthday...everyone is feeling the intense and stress :burn: ...
