    I agree, if the uni had to choose between a student with 96 ATAR plus 5 and one with 98 ATAR plus 5, the 98 ATAR student would get in - simply because their raw atar is higher (even though both students ATAR's amount to 99.95 with bonus points).

    Questions for Romanticism were just perfect! Although I hate it when you see a question that you know so much about and it's like "where the fuck do i begin".

    Section II - Ancient Societies

    While it was annoying for everyone to talk about their society in the 15 marker, the markers will only probs look for things that you wrote for which there is evidence for. If you mentioned archaeological evidence then you're fine, even if you didnt write that much.

For A: - Role of of Themistocles in diverting funds from Laurion to the construction of...

    Greek World 500-440 BC

    For those who did part (a), how did you approach this question? Did you state that the Athenian navy was the only reason for victory, or did you say that it was tempered by other factors such as Themistocles strategies?

    Section I - Core (Pompeii and Herculaneum)

    Yep, I also said that they were present during important rites of passage such as marriage, births and funerals and were offered fruits and pine cones - symbols of fertility. I was also at a lecture and they actually talked about the house of the vetti Lararium - which was actually found in the...
