  1. Mistakes with trivial arithmetic

    Let's say in a 3 mark question I have a single line at the end in which I (incorrectly) write something like: k/2 = 1/3 k = 1/6 I know that mental arithmetic is critical to mathematics, but is this something that should cause me to lose a whole mark, in an exam that was done under considerable...

    A friend of mine did very poorly in his first and second assessments for engineering (bottom third of cohort). He ended up getting a state rank
  3. Difficulty of the new syllabus

    I've heard from teachers at my school that the new syllabus is easier than the old syllabus. How will this affect alignment and scaling?

    MrSir, do you have notes on 1984?
  11. Questions on alcohols (organic chem)

    3 is ethene because it undergoes addition polymerisation to form polyethylene, hence process 2 must be dehydration (alcohol + strong acid --> alkene). 4 is halogenation (Br2 is reacted) and 5 is ethane as it is a hydrogenation reaction. 2-chloro-2-methylpentane should form 2-methylpentan-2-ol...
  12. George Orwell

    I am writing some contextual preamble for an assignment on texts and human experiences and I was wondering, how would you describe Orwell's zeitgeist. Of course, there are things like the soviet union and such, but what else was going on in the late 1940s that is pertinent to a discussion about...
