I remember one year we had torrential rain and the roof leaked on the front row of one of the HSC trials for mathematics absolutely drenching students and the exam papers so they had to give people unlimited time, and replacement exam papers because they fell apart. Pop-up outdoor tents may be an option though?Inb4 it rains on the paper.
LMAOOOOOOONeither wind nor rain will be a problem as the exams will be on stone tablets and you'll have a hammer and chisel to fill in answers.
Since essay writing will be slower, the English exams will now be 48 hours in length. Electrodes will be attached to each student to give electric shocks to prevent sleeping, so no one will be disadvantaged.
Also, to avoid the potential unfairness caused by some being less familiar with ancient technologies, the appropriate mindset will be fostered by presenting all exams in Latin.
If the proposal to hold the HSC exams outside ends up not happening I'd imagine a shit ton of COVID precautions, like a beefed up version of how NESA handled it in 2020. Masks, sanitiser, social distanced desks, rapid antigen testing, temperature checks before a student is permitted to enter the examination room, etc.. (You get the point)what next
no really, what will they do?
