How did everyone go?
Post you comments/complaints/thoughts?

I know I did terrible. I thought that I would run out of time, but it turns out that I had time left over at the end. Probably because I couldn't write much for the 7 markers. I thought that this exam was much harder than previous years! Its hard to know what to study for, because the syllabus is not very specific, and the marking guidelines are no help (e.g. full marks=correct answer) they don't tell you what the correct answers may be! Also the marker's comments are all that detailed either. Also I was very nervous and couldn't concentrate for the exam.

My comments for the Graphics Industries section:
  • There were more drawings than previous years. Its hard to know how accurate they must be. esp. when they are not worth many marks
  • It is hard to do isometric when we are not aloud a set square!
  • I don't know if the markers will understand my mathematical comparison of the different projection methods. but i didn't resort to the projection matrices.

Just some general notes about the exam,
you must sign a paper saying that the BOS may or may not keep your answers. and that they may publish them. You must agree if you want your HSC.

Graphics

I was running out of time, which made me panic because i usually have plenty of time left...
so i was doing some drawings with shakey hands.

i got my 3rd pt projection symbol wrong, i didnt draw a nut correctly... otherwise i felt fine with the written parts. except 'workplace culture'... that threw me off

Re: 2007 Industrial Technology HSC Exam

Hahaha, that 'workplace culture' one was funny, it's like wtf. I just put it had to do with the behaviours and attitudes of the workers and better work environment would improve it; dunno if it's good enough for the 2 marks but... And that nut bolt one and symbol I totally left out as well, those 2 were definitely band 6 questions. Hey Rishi!, the yellow paper did look funny lol!


Anyway, this year's 7 markers were a lot better than previous years' 8 markers, plus they had one on computers which made it a whole lot easier...

And I'm suprised the people here are talkin' bout graphics, I would've expected all those timber bastards to fill this thread, lol.


Anyway, Good luck to everyone for English!

Re: 2007 Industrial Technology HSC Exam

Yeah, i'm surprised. Timber has way more people than graphics, yet all these people do graphics.
I was surprised to see a question mention oblique, as the syllabus makes no reference to it.
I hope my major project will help my bad exam mark.

Re: 2007 Industrial Technology HSC Exam

i did this multimedia exam. it wasnt too bad, but there were certainly, as mentioned above, a few questions which were not very clear and through me off a little bit. I finished with just enough time to check over my answers and i think i will get a reasonably high mark. But then again it all depends on my hsc mark doesn't it.

Re: 2007 Industrial Technology HSC Exam

http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2007/10/19/2063706.htm
The Federal Government and the New South Wales Opposition have accused Labor and the unions of using yesterday's Higher School Certificate (HSC) exam to indoctrinate students with left-wing ideologies.

...

The question [in the industrial technology exam] asked students to discuss the impact of Government legislation on employees.

Federal Education Minister Julie Bishop says it was clearly about WorkChoices and was another example of how political views are being pushed in the classroom.

"You'd have to be naive in the extreme not to see this as a loaded question," she said.

"It has been backed up by months and months of union campaigning in schools in NSW, pushing their political agenda.

"We've got teachers handing out anti-Government propaganda to school children and parents are complaining that their children are being used as political pawns."

But state Education Minister John Della Bosca has described the reaction to the question as hysterical.

Re: 2007 Industrial Technology HSC Exam

ooohh here it is. my bad :burn:

^ LOL @ the accusation, i really do hate those type of questions though, maybe because i'm not strong in the industry section as much as i am in the other section. i did multimedia and i found it quite relaxing for a first exam - well, to start off the hsc but i hope it doesn't get included in my uai :burn: and GRR i ran out of time! T__T and ever sooo STUPIDLY thought the finishing time for the other subject was for my exam *siiigggh* overall i'd say i just did ok =/

LankanG: yes! it was VERY off putting - -''

haha true. i knew my teacher was shit but when i saw that it just reinforced just how shit he is, never heard about this shit before ever. but having said that my fuknut teacher didnt give us any theory or inclass lessons till 2 weeks after the trials, before then it was just a struggle to get the major works done.

so yes, im pretty confident my hsc is ruined :)

Re: 2007 Industrial Technology HSC Exam

5 minutes left to go, I was quite happy with myself that I finished all the questions when I decided to double check. I accidentally left out a 7 mark questions. Lets just say I have never written faster in my life.

Re: 2007 Industrial Technology HSC Exam

multimedia = zero study

i was late to this exam and i rkn it was pretty easy overall lol.. all the questions were similar to previous assessment tasks given since year 11. i didnt really do the 'major project' so overall my mark for this subject is so low (even though i improved 20 positions) from 44/60 to 24/60.

despite this improvement i hope it doesnt get counted in my uai - my focus is on my other subjects :)
