    Law students and their unwarranted ego.

    "You are nothing but arts student, and everyone knows it, except you" I take real offence to that statement - not because you are equating a Law degree to an Arts degree, but to the fact you’ve decided that while Law students are snobs for thinking their degree is better/harder than anyone...

    Germany Questions? Will they plit them weimar/nazi

    No! Don't assume they will split them lol. i did my HSC last year, my whole year was hoping for a question on the collapse on weimar and it was both on nazism. well one was on foreign policy, the other on culture in both weimar and nazi times. You can definitely favour one of your topics, but...

    How to answer "effectiveness of the legal system"

    Make sure to look in your syllabus! Depending what area you are doing, it always sets out the effectiveness criteria you need to analyse the legal system from. took me ages to realise that lol my teacher failed to mention it.

    Langton's Pride + Prejudice

    Hey yeah i agree that you shouldn't really be referring to anything 20th century....at least not in the real exam but i remember my teacher saying that langton's version was much more sexualised - like with mr collins walking up and seeing lydia in her nightgown, it just wouldn;t have...

    Scientific/Economic Paradigms in Browning?

    Hey! Its a long while back for me lol but the laboratory definitely has some scientific paradigms in it - the protagonist is breaking the norm and entering the male dominated realm of science, ironically in order to try and maintain the norm of keeping a husband. Badly worded but hopefully you...

    Thoughts on the exam

    live.fast, i wouldn;t stress, i didn;t make a judgement about the source - i think it is up to you whether you want to analyse it, or simply use the issues it brings up to evaluate other historians. yeah, i think the source was slightly post modernist, but i don't think that just becuase he...

    Elizabethan's galore.

    yeah i only did 2 areas of debate, Identity/Gender and Religion with three historians: Neale, Camden and Haigh - and just that took me a bit over an hour to write! i thought the question was fine once you thought about it, i kind of argued that historians attempt to understand the past...

    Thoughts on the exam
