Which is why I never said it always works that way. Although I was referring to what the majoritys opinion would be, VA is one subject that has extremely split ideas on it. However, even then I believe the majority opinion would be that Extension 2 maths is far more difficult.I dunno I'd find VA a LOT harder than MX2, and VA scales much much worse. I can name 100 people who would concur.
Then say you are talking about "in general", don't just say it as though it is a fact.I know you love to say this, and you even corrected me before. However I already knew this, I just think it is a far simpler explanation to say that the harder a subject, in general the better it scales.
I know technically it has NOTHING to do with a subjects difficulty, but across the board a subjects difficulty and it's canditatures relative strength are almost ALWAYS exactly correlated. You might think it is a bad thing to give slightly misleading information, but when you are trying to explain it to people who have absolutely no idea what you are talking about (and who often struggle with the concept), I think it is just easier to say "Basically, the harder a subject the better it will scale".
Stupid. People who like Economics but don't like Aboriginal Studies would obviously find Aboriginal Studies harder. It comes down to doing what you love, that's what will be easy.
Not "anyone" or everyone would agree that Economics is harder than Aboriginal Studies. They are completely different fields. One subject, ECON, looks at money, of which the nomadic Aborigines have and had none. Aboriginal Studies is a great subject that I would have done had it been offered - you get to learn about your heritage (white people who massacred the natives, yay for capitalism! ) and the tragic story of 1788.
We European-descended Australians destroyed this country, we didn't make it. Australia and its Aborigines were better off without our nasty dangerous money and guns. To suggest that Economics (money) is progress is ridiculous. Money practically killed a beautiful ancient society of wonderfully resourceful people
I challenge an economist to survive without money in a forest or the outback - I really do believe the Aborigines achievements of sustainability and emotional wealth are far more wonderful and beautifully touching than some bridge over water with moving things on it and some expensive house
I'm so angry and sad. I wish I was born a nomad Aborigine. It would have been bliss (fuck the shorter life expectancy, at least the years I would have had would have been more happy than this terrible white "civilised" life where Australians and Americans consent to blasting fellow homo sapiens/people to pieces in Iraq
*tries to rep*Then say you are talking about "in general", don't just say it as though it is a fact.
And no, i don't love saying it. I just feel that i should correct those that are spreading myths.
I wouldn't agree with your latter generalisation anyway. I'd do textiles (which has low scaling) and i'd most likely struggle. As duckcowhydrbid said, the difficulty of a subject is different for each person
well if thats all u got out of 13 years good luck with life... apart from the fact u can read write and are able to contruct ur own opinion, colaborate it and back it up with eveidence...wonder where u gained those skillsi think it's unfair. Seriously 13 years of schooling and all we get is a number.
