It was fine except the stupid 6 markers, shouldn't be penalised for not knowing how to answer the same poo multiple times.

I'm fairly pleased with my responses. Although, i'm always self-confident in my academic escapades.

The main things that stumped me more than anything were the 1 mark definitions. I had everything done and dusted except them. :L

My thoughts exactly. I've probably done 7 past papers and this is drastically worse than any of them.

I wasn't fond of those 6 mark questions, the collecting, displaying, etc.
Every question 23,24,25, etc.

I couldn't stretch bullshit anymore, on multimedia. There was no time left, so I ended up putting dot points.

Multimedia seemed fine, just one or two that stumped me, the music store question seemed easy. Did anyone else do the schema with 3 tables.

Also it asked us in a question to draw a labelled diagram, was that the diagram with environment, pupose, hardware/soft...etc??? Because I did that.

TPS was easier than Multimedia....I know what a pixel is, but it couldn't come out...I was so pissed at I couldnt explain it in technical terms....half of my answer were jibberish in Multimedia.....I rushed....There was me and another student left at the end of the exam...

that exam was extremely annoying. 90% of the content i studied and knew wasn't even in the test! all that communications work was for nothing! my book didnt have any of the role descriptions in it either!
overall, way harder than the previous tests.

Haha yeah i was like " Pixel... hmmm......." The screwed the last 10 marks of multimedia ;( My other option was Automated Manufacturing Sysyems, it wasnt too bad. IPT is seriously such a bullshit exam. So much specific shit to remember. The answers are really easy to get wrong. Oh well, its over now.

Do you think they dumbed the test down to compensate for such a big syllabus change? No gantt charts at all they are like the basic.

yer that exam was pritty crap, alot harder than older hsc exams. Most of the long answer questions asked about processing and its like the suckiest of them all, and who can draw a schema or whatever it was, i know i can't!

I thought the exam suxed and I am a teacher .. GPS was easy part .. and I think the only way you might get 20/20 is because they will realise a couple of questions are SO badly worded or ambiguous the markers will give every one a mark. :mad1:

The exam was based on assumed knowledge and not something that you can study for, the good thing is that the whole state will do bad so we don't have to worry that much. I'll probably get ~75
