Relatively easy MC.
Iffy-Wtf SA.
Iffy-Wtf BR (the business should just go through cessation to be honest).
Good old easy essay questions.

Also wrote 19 pages of bullshit.


I also forgot to use the spare writing space for SA, will they rip me for not writing on the lines provided?

yeah but theres the logic that "WHEAT" could be sold within industrial markets to make final goods e.g. bread.
I think flour would be in the industrial market to make bread tbh because wheat is a really really raw, basic material. Thats how I justified picking D) Resources tbh. You can't shove wheat into the batter and expect a bread to come out, as its basically a plant like thing until its been milled into fine flour.

And I was also thinking of the example I had where Toyota uses "intermediate" components to make its vehicles such as steel plates etc and you can't just mine that without the original being like lumps of rocks and metal before its forged into a half-finished product which is then used in an industrial market.

What the fuck is with this guy's trials:



How could a teacher predict the exact wording (apart from the verb) of the HSC examination? Is it possible? Or is something sus going on here. So unfair lol.

Well, I don't know about 0-17, but 17-20 requires case studies
It's literally like 5 marks or something. Check the marking criteria, and you'll see case studies are required right up until like the last band.

Yeah I think SA was tricking. Wtf was with the process layout Q?? Literally could not think of anything (well I made up something, not sure if correct).
What'd you do for it?? I was a bit confused for that hahah

Well Operations question is always that general "competitive advantage" stuff. I didn't even bother reading the Finance question once I saw Operations.

It was a tricky question that I couldn't really think of at all since my notes didn't have anything that would be relevant for the q, so made up on the spot.

Think for the first one I said something about considering the function of each piece of equipment and grouping them in order to get max efficiency because he customises furniture (I know that's the definition of process layout lol). Then for the second one I said something about making sure the layout is correct and he doesn't decide to change to a non-customisable approach since the financial costs of rearranging plant layout are high.

Don't think that answered the question though

Hmmmmm, yeah true, the case study point in the syllabus is the competitive advantage part. Still jealous my teacher didn't predict the questions at all.

Haha that's my picture! My school bought the paper from WeSSSTA (Western Sydney Social Sciences Teachers Association, see http://www.wesssta.net/). My teachers insist it's a complete coincidence, but it seems too far fetched if you ask me!

Also, anyone by chance have a PDF copy of the paper. As far as I'm able to search the Facebook/here/elsewhere, one hasn't been uploaded yet.

Ah well, it wasn't really a problem for me because I practised that essay question so many times
