    Harder test this year?

    I was so confused when I did the multiple choice, I was going "C, C, C, C, B, C... THIS CAN'T BE RIGHT!!!" still, from what i heard a lot of ppl had the same answers, so maybe it was! One girl in my year ran out of time and guessed the entire multiple choice, nice one

    The Board Of Studies Is A Joke

    I don't think the exam system is accurate, serioulsy, think of how many hours studying you do, then add it with the hours of school (1000 a year, including study periods) and you have to express all the effort and knowledge in a 2-3 hour exam. It's absurd.

    The Board Of Studies Is A Joke

(genuine question, not taking the piss) All I've heard was that it didn't follow the syllabus, were the questions 'answerable'? or just unexpected? For example, in Ad.

    "Why did Greece go to war with Persia during this time period"

    There are various reasons: - Defence. - Free states under Persian control. etc. But there is also the fact that they had no choice in the matter. Remember the Persians invaded, it was either fight or lie down and let them burn the country to cinders and kill them all. Personally, I think I'd fight
