So... how did we all go!?

How did we all find it?!

I was stumped by question 1 (a), and couldnt get my head straight from then on... :(

I would have gone well, but id be suprised if i get in the 90's, which i am devo about cos i got 49.4/50 for my end of year mark!

But its over now... that was the only exam i cared about cos i want a scholarship at Tocal (anyone goin to Tocal ag collage btw? :D)

Hope you all went better than i did

Re: Done and dusted.

haha i reckon! our teacher was sooo useless we didnt even know what we studied for the paper two modules!!
totally confused with the very first question and the rest! haha i memorized a scientific plant name and it wasnt even able to be related! haha through it in at the end of an essay on GM! ;)

how'd everyone feel!!!!!! im not too confident our teacher always marked high i reckon so not sure how these guys'l mark! think i passed though! :)

6 to go...didnt even feel like that one counted!

Re: Done and dusted.

it definately wasnt as difficult as i imagined it was going to be.
especially after all the horror stories from the business studies exam beforehand

i went to a video conference from the ag hsc markers and they mark pretty leniently- they look to award marks.. they dont take any off

so i think everyone is alright there :)

Standard english
Agriculture (finished!)

Re: So... how did we all go!?

Hey I think i went pretty good actually haha I am currently first in course at school so hopefully i got in the 90's. I was actually planning to go to tocal next year, not sure yet though!

I studied alot and actually was happy with all questions except question 1. YUK! it was hard and pointless, the diagram was different to what we learnt and it was poorly designed! god what happens at x hey, well.....

It was different to past papers, loved the question on pastures - only required intorduced species! and the hormone one was good to.
Overall i believe i aced it, dunno. I just love ag so much! its th one i study for all the time hahaha. I can't beleive high school ag is over for ever!

Re: Done and dusted.

Indeed it is done and dusted.
Too bad our school will once again take the majority of state rankings.

I wish there was more competition against our school; create a more level playing field.

Re: So... how did we all go!?

I had too high esxpectations (my lowest mark all yaer was 97%) so i was disapointed... i was actuarlly aiming for 99/100% in this one, so i guess thats y i was so dissapointed when i coulnt answer the first question... :(

I do agriculture by correspondance, so im pretty porud of getting 99% as a yearly mark :D (btw, never do correspondance courses unless youre 100% dedicated! THEY SUCK!)

Hey Meg, if you do decide you wanna go to tocal, give me a buzz! Would be good to chat to you over MSN... :p

Re: Done and dusted.

I was aiming to beat a few of the Ruse guys, but the first question threw me, and i had trouble getting my head back together...

I got 99% for my yearly mark, so was hopin to go well but... *sigh* we'll just have to see

Correspondance Agriculture FTW!

Where to now?

Where are you all headed now?

Any of you persuing a career in agriculture? Going to an Ag collage? Tocal or Armidale maybe?

I'm heading to Tocal next year... Cert III in agriculture, but if its too easy i'll skip up to cert IV... I got 99% as a yearly mark and hope to get a nice scholarship...

Or are you all after compleatly different careers?

Im curious how many people who took agriculture are actuarly interested in it as a career, was it just a fun subject, or easy marks???

Re: Done and dusted.

i think that maybe our class spent a littttttle too much time on animal production and practicals.
but we hardly did anything on our electives in class, i was using the stuff id learnt from earth. :S
ahh well. hakuna matata.
