    use of '&' in the hsc..

    technically they don't like it and you're not supposed to, but theyre not about to take off 5 marks because you occaisoionly use & or +. They say that it distrupts the reading process or something in english... but i don't think they'll hang you've for it if your content's solid.

    Deutsch extension?

    although theajane is actually a born language freak, she is right - the actual level of german you need for extension isn't that much higher than for 2U. The written exam isn't too difficult if you have a good grounding in the language (and the first section is in English anyway) but you really...

    Can I use pencil?

    Although the exam does say write using only a blue or black pen, you can actually write in pencil - it's not like the maker is going to be like OMFG he/she used pencil. WRONG. a right answer in pencil is still right. it's obviously not advised, but if you draw a graph in pencil and use it for...

    Essay length...

    Is anyone else finding it excessively difficult to condense everything into an essay that vaguely resembles something that can be written in an hour? I just can't seem to fit all 4 texts into an essay that's shorter than about 2400 words - and I can't write that in an hour. Any tips for cutting...

    General thoughts on the 2008 CSSA Trial Extension 1 Mathematics Paper

    shit, you guys did well! (well done!). the median at my school was about 41/84 (ie a fail)... was everyone getting 78/84, or is that just excessvely good? I got 61% (51/84) and was pretty happy with that but I'm thinking that I should maybe drop it / give up on it if everyone else was getting...
