Yeah not too bad! I was pretty stressed bout it last night but it all ended up ok..

Hey did anyone actually do Q28 as opposed to Q29?? That was the dumbest question!!! and i agree, they o.d'd on the ER waaaaay too much... and there weren't any ratios!!! But the multiple choice q's were all good too...

overall... thumbs up :D

it was ok

hey,
i didn't mind the exam at all!! i did question 29 ( easier to spit crap on), and the business report was classic!! i thought the short answer questions were pretty dodge though, i think my answers were too

multiple choice?? i'm not exactly the king of multiple choice, but i thought they were ok

the best part for me though were the extended response sections, 2 books on each, let's just hope it was worth it!!

i'm just glad it's all over, i was stressing right up to the time we walked into the exam, but once i got relaxed, it was all good

hehe it felt pretty good.. i think it was excellent that in section 1v they had two completely different focuses as opposed to two employment relations --- in which case i would hav been in trouble.. and q 27 was ok but i did it last and wasnt in the best shape of mind.. overall pretty good... i was wondering if any1 knew how to do quest. 18 and 19 in m.c. ( i guessed 2 c's :) )

i wrote one full booklet for q29 -- and thats with bout 7-8 words a line but in the form of a business report which helped space it out more... i guessed that case study would be in it so i knew it really well - just had to vomit it out... but i think my 5 pages on 27 werent as good

did anyone else find that that Q29, was deceptive in the requirement to use a case study to answer the question

i only realsised when i got out, cause i read the question and not the criteria for assessing the question, did anyone else fuck that up or was i the onlyone...!:chainsa w:

u wont be only one.. at lea st 2 of my mates did the same thing. when i 1st read it i thought it was bit strange that they didnt mention "with reference to" in the question.. i guess the natural thing to do then was read the rubrik ::eek:

I thought the exam was really good; and so did 5 or so of the guys who do business from my school.

The rest of the grade thought it was shit - even the teacher!

yea, they like to penalise u heavily for no case studies.

apparently they love it when students use more than one and use statistics and hypotheticals..

i hope they do - for my sake!!
