i hope the big question is on the kidney, protein synthesis or the immune response. Hope sutton and boveri dont turn up. Dont want donated blood or silly things like that. Can do without genetic technologies. Everything else is ok. Hope communication turns out pretty stock standard - and they dont go asking for silly animal questions or crap like that.

lols sutton and boveri i don't do comm but my teacher reckons that something to do with the EM spectrum and animals is going to be asked cause it always catches students and acts like a band discriminator

ADH and aldosterone is easy. Yeah ur right (kid 2 above), the animal questions in communication will catch pple off guard cos pple just study the eye, ear and the brain.

Argh, can't wait to get this exam over and done with, so much content that you need to remember for it. The Independent trial was nothing like the past hsc papers. The trial was easier to study for because it followed the syllabus so religiously. The hsc doesn't make it so black and white for us. GL everyone.

I can't remember them exactly but they basically took a dot point from the syllabus and made it into a question. Hence making it so obvious to students what they were looking for in your answer. Damn 97 aih, what paper did you do?

thats what i mean - im not sure what it was! Some questions had been replaced by past hsc questions (e.g. the 2008 question on experimental design for pathogens in drinking water was in there). There were quetions like:1. label three parts of the eye on this diagram 2. Explain with diagrams the differences between myopia and hyperopia3. A comparison of ecto and endotherms4. The adaptive advantgae of haemaglobin5. DNa replication
