dw i didnt even do the cold war question in my trial exam
like i didnt touch it
this time i finished but i did the cold war last and my ending was shockin like i did 20 years in 5mins plus a dodgy conclusion of 2 lines
i just wrote basic stuff in the end
a lot of ppl didnt finish so dont worry
they shouldnt put so many essays
esp within 3 hrs

Cold War was hell :(

Managed to finish, but was sitting around with tonnes of time left :S so writing a whole load of absolute rubbish... not a good move. Feel like I did badly.

I felt like I failed my trial though as well and topped it... so hoping for another weird moment for the HSC :)

And then because I didnt do it as I went, spent 10 minutes writing my student and center number

its good but
our examiners let us fill out our pages with our numbers before we start so we dont forget/run out of time after

I finished it with about 4 minutes to spare. I wrote 24 pages altogether (29 if you include Section I). I went through Section I pretty quickly (about 25 minutes) so I had more time to concentrate on my other essays.
The supervisors strongly encourage us to write our student number and centre number at the end of the exam after the time has ended (if we're still there) so we don't waste time during the exam.

I finished with lots of time to spare but I don't know if it was quality. Modern is my worst subject EVER so i'm just glad it's over (Y)

I guess I wrote 8 pages for each question and like 15 pages for personality part a and b... so thats like 30 pages plus ww1 stuff lol. -shrugs- I will still do badly.

me too. like five/ten minutes.
altho my nazism in power as totalitarianism was most likely a poor 12/25 response if im lucky and the Leni Riefenstahl "history is about winners" totally confused me. :uhoh:

the cold war question was pretty broad and you had to cover alot from 1945-91 so not sure if my answer lacked depth

i finished with 5 minutes to go
wrote like 45 pages
