Half marks come about because there are two markers - say one gives 23 and the other gives 22 the final mark will be 22.5/25

Mate those marks are incredible (partcularly english in my opinion). Out of curiosity, roughly how many pages did you write for each eco essay and how did you feel about your essays when you finished?

I believe I wrote about 9 pages for my fiscal essay which I thought I would do better in and 7 for my second essay. In all honesty, without trying to make excuses, that exam was at the end of a week with 3 other exams and I was exhausted and only started studying for it at 7 pm the day before and then I very stupidly I forgot to drink anything on the day so I had a killer headache in the exam and almost threw up when I got home. It was the first exam I have ever walked out of and not been able to remember the questions; I thought I had done awfully. I know my essay marks for it arent great in comparison but they're better than I expected! Good luck in your HSC! Drink water!

I've applied to US colleges so I'll find out about those in April, but if I don't get in/go, I'll do a B Arts (Media/Communications) at Sydney. :)

Wow, you did so well! Did you study consistently throughout the year?
Haha not at all - I'm a crammer, and the only study I did was making notes. Aside from that, I did my assessments and listened in class and chose subjects that I loved so I retained a lot of the info really easily. :) Good luck in your HSC.
