    Wow. Calm down there buddy. No need to have a stroke over it. If you'd read back through the thread, you'd see that I've offered advice on roughly how many pages of written notes I believed would be effective for study of this Core topic. (20 pages was my advice - from personal experience)...

    Topics for '09

    Whilst the History Extension MP does have syllabus specified requirements, it's best to follow what your teacher says on this; after all, it is marked internally, not externally. If your teacher has given you the okay to proceed on a group of questions, as opposed to a focus question, then...

    attention survivors of history extension major works!!!

    Don't fret over the marks themselves! :) Even if you were to achieve only 10/40 for your Major Project, as long as you were to be ranked first at the end of all internal assessments, you'd be in the same position as a student who achieves 40/40 for their Major Project at their school. If...

    How much does the major work contribute to the final HSC mark?

    Exactly what I would have said. Remember, when completing internal assessments, rank is the key focus. Every mark you lose in the major project counts towards a greater loss in rank than marks lost in the internal exams that your teacher will issue. So the major project is ideally the best...

    3rd in the state, because my raw exam mark was probably 99/100. I can't know for sure - they don't release raw HSC marks. If you don't believe me though.. you can always google my name and Board of Studies. It was alot of hard work and effort that got me those marks.

    Spartan society

    Reading excerpts of those sources isn't a bad idea. But not the whole thing - I agree, that's too much time wasting.

    Text books?

    History and the historians is a VERY comprehensive book. Perhaps a little overly comprehensive - one of the problems I had with that particular book, later on, was condensing what I thought was important - particularly because there was so much that the book emphasizes as important...

    how many people are doing history extension in your school?

    Just as a word of advice: the fewer in your class, the better it tends to be. (Think about ranking, moderation, alignment). As long as you're a strong history extension student, you won't be constricted by less able students who just happen to be ranked above you. (It happens lol) :)

    Historical Schools of Thought

    Both Kujah and Rjat are correct. You need to have some variation within these 'schools of thought'. At the same time, you're a tad off (maybe more than a tad) with a few of them - do you use any particular textbook for history extension?

    EXT HIST scaling.. and how to do well?

    It's an extension subject, so I think the scaling will be favourable lol. And you're right, without guidance, it IS a hard subject to advance through. The content can be understood, but you should also have a look at some of the resources here perhaps, to see what you should be advancing...
