    I got 81.80 after getting high band 5 results for every subject. Which is pretty good considering my subjects were all arts and humanities with no maths or science, not to mention that my father died this year and I had a major hospital operation. So with bonus points I will get into a course at...

    General Thoughts: Visual Arts

    I did a series of oil paintings using the palette knife technique on the concept of the asylum seekers journey to Australia leaving behind hardship in search of freedom and mercy. It consisted of portraits of the refugees and waterscapes with boats being swallowed by the waves. I wanted to do...

    General Thoughts: Visual Arts

    Did you use quotes? I had 2 per artist so 6 all up...I don't think it will matter much if you forgot to leave that sort of stuff out but I guess it depends on what question you chose, I did question 6 so I believe they will be more lenient with that question in regards to the artworks format...

    General Thoughts: Visual Arts

    I chose Q6 as well and wrote 3 booklets on Marcel Duchamp, Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein. Section one was great but I spent too much time writing for Q1 and Q2 so I only got to write a page and a quarter for question 3 which sucks because it was worth 12 marks. Serves me right for poor time...

    General Thoughts: Society and Culture

    I just broke it down into paragraphs so one for marketers, one for the government and one for family in regards to teen film as a popular culture...it wasn't the best question but I knew alot about control and censorship so I think that was my best section of the entire exam

    General Thoughts: Society and Culture

    I don't think the band 6 cutoff will be higher than 86 considering how most people I've talked to sturggled with the 9 marker and MC

    General Thoughts: Society and Culture

    Theres nine marks gone for me...I wrote about feasibility studies and India I was completely thrown off by that question. I feel pretty confident with the rest of the paper except for a few multiple choice questions.

    General Thoughts: Community & Family Studies

    Re: Thoughts on CAFS HSC Exam 2014 It wasn't a difficult exam it was just the stupid wording that was either to trick students or terribly written by BOTSE. I believe the responses to certain questions will indicate to them the confusion about the wording. I look forward to reading the notes...

    General Thoughts: Community & Family Studies

    Re: Thoughts on CAFS HSC Exam 2014 Oh no that report question confused me I wrote something completely random because I did't really understand the wording of the question. Poor wording seemed to be an issue throughout this exam. For that MC question I chose negligent because although the...

    General Thoughts: English Paper 1 (AOS)

    I thought it was pretty easy...I predicted that the essay would be about identity because they usually rotate the questions every 5 years or so.
