Re: Not hard?

Question 26
One ethical - Sugging, Legal - Misleading advertising
One Financial issue(high amount of accounts receivable/low account receivable turnover ratio)--> two strategies were Discount and factoring
Communication system to improve E.R -Grievance procedures (neg, med, conc, arb), team briefings, worker participation.

BOOM, hoping 15+/20.
Yes!!! I did the same thing, but i called team briefings, team structures (epic fail!!) I realised like 5 minutes after pens down. LOL

Re: Not hard?

Not particularly hard overall. One or two short answers were abit tricky but the business report and extended response questions were not bad.

Re: Not hard?

It is actually pretty accurate, however you have to put in your HSC mark not the raw mark you think you got. If you think you got 75% raw, then that would align to somewhere in mid 80s (going off last year's data that said 82% raw went up to band 6) put that into the calculator and see what you get for your ATAR mark equivalent :)
thats crazy, where did raw mark of 80 align to last year?

where did u get that info as well? private message me the link or whatever ?? :)

Re: Not hard?

Which question did you guys do for the extended response? 27 or 28?
I did question 28, i found only I and another person attempted this question in my business studies class. Everyone else did question 27

I got totally owned

I got smashed by this exam, especially the extended responses. My study did not focus on the correct areas of the syllabus. Anyone who did the exam feel the same?

Re: I got totally owned

I got abosulety smashed in the extended response but the first two section of the paper I did really well, about 17/20 for m/c and about 34/40 for short answers.

And then I came across the extended responses :S

Managed to write about all the necessary points, but it was just crap!!!

Probably get 13/20 for Q.26 and like 10/20 for question 27!!!
Yuck!

Re: I got totally owned

I was absolutely relieved with the test, I thought I lost a few marks in question 27 though as I forgot all my case studies and had to make them up, I also thought I lost abit in the last question of section 2, but overall i was happy with it :)
