LOL the extended responses were a joke. Triple barrelled give me a break. The state average is not gonna be good for them to say the least.

multiple choice WAS surprisingly easy!
short answers werent so great
i think i did okay in the business report, hopefully
completely bombed out in the essay though, even though the parts of the question werent too bad.

multiple choice was done in 10 minutes with 90% right methinks

short answers were not very easy, i didn't study for the right things in order to answer them

extended responses were fucking ridiculous, i'd be lucky for a 10/20 for them

Overall I thought it was a fair exam.

Multiple Choice, I think 2 questions got me thinking quite a bit (I probably got them wrong), short answers was fair (although they did ask some things which were I wouldn't say hard, but not expected - well not by me anyway), report was fairly easy and the extended response was fairly straight forward although I would've liked to have seen a return to the double verb format.

Edit: Ayyahh, just realised I didn't emphasise enough on the Marketing Plan.

That's such a bad idea. You gave away an easy 10 marks. Always tackle the easiest marks first.

I guessed a few short answers. Went horribly on last question.

Multiple choice was easy. Hopefully 19/20
Short answers were alright, except the first one... Hopefully 35/40
Report wasn't too bad, didn't really like the differentiated part though... Mine was alil short (7 pages in small writing)... Hopefully 16/20 (unless I screwed up the differentiated part)
Extended Response question Q27 was terrible for a case study, and Q28 wasn't THAT bad... Wrote the finance bit first (I have no idea why), with some links, but not too many... Forgot one of the things (growth), and forgot names of most things in the research process (remembered what they were though). Hoping for 14/20, but idk...

Imo was a badly set out test. Q27 made no sense whatsoever. How the heck do you link financial planning cycle with customer types? Sigh fail.

i actually found the short answers really difficult (not a good sign :()

the first one, two aspects of an employment contract or whatever

i just wrote "sets out minimum wages/working conditions and working hours (ie. casual/permanent/part-time"

is that right?
i think i did about the same in short answers as i did in the CSSA trials..... 32/40

extended responses i probably got like 14/20 at the very MOST :(

mult choice, hopefully 18 or 19


does anybody know if they mark extended responses really easy, because everyone did shit?
