Not hard?

I didn't find it challenging at all.

Was this just me? or everyone else as well?

How did everyone go?

I did well. My predictions are:

Short answers was tricky for me, didn't study the syllabus part for some.

Multiple probably 19/20

Extended responses 18/20 and probs 19/20~

Re: Not hard?

I agree!
I thought it was quite easy. I mean, a few things stumped me to begin with, but reading over them again made it all come flooding back.
fingers crossed!

Re: Not hard?

multiple choice was very easy, short answers alright, report was easy - had trouble remembering syllabus points, extended was easy if you could remember syllabus.

So how'd everyone go?

I found multiple choice and short answers piss easy. And then, as usual, I forgot dot points for the extended responses. I forget what communication systems were for 26(I can't even be bothered looking it up now lol). For 27, I forgot some of the dot points for reasons for expansion.

Re: Not hard?

Multi-choice was incredibly easy. Short answers I thought were pretty good too. Extended is where I probably lost a few marks.

Re: Not hard?

I never know what my reports are like haha.
I have never compared them to other peoples so not sure if mine where trash or not.
Did everyone else do headings for last section or go for an essay type?
