    Are textbooks a necessity?

    Past papers are your best friends, they provide you with the best exposure + preparation for the HSC. Notes and textbooks to me were a source of clarification on anything I was not understanding clearly or getting wrong when doing the past papers.

    HSC Biology exam paper

    They had 2 complete questions last year, One asking about the size estimation of RBC and a question on enzyme activity influenced by temp, ph and substrate conc. everything else was around search for better health haha. I think the stuff testing on skills and whatnot only get heavier each year

    HSC Biology exam paper

    I think this year's paper might be based on skills and pracs because chemistry barely had any of it and they normally test them in either chem or bio. So learn your validity and reliability factors people!!! Those things always steals me of my marks haha. I do hope it's on maintaining a balance...

    General Thoughts: SOR I

    I thought the exam was great! :) I was in fear of section III to be some really annoying quote. But I liked how it was opened to discussion as if it was giving you the chance to not screw up lmfao. I spoke about the Hasidims and related their ideas and revitalization of the basics of Judaism...

    Well after going through that paper with my teacher, she said that this is where you have to focus on the interplay of specifically the personal and political paradigms, but also reference the others i.e. scientific and religious to elaborate your answer. But I guess everyone has different...

    Essay structure

    I hate how ext questions can be tackled in 2 ways... i.e. either by themes or text -_- I sometimes feel like it is forcing you to come in and write an essay on the spot and not vomit something haha. But if i do it by themes, am I doing it by themes in accordance to paradigms or just themes in...

    Essay structure

    I've had so much mixed feedback on this question :/ From teachers, from past extension students, everyone.
