Check out the SMH article toady if you haven't... Everyone is very upset about this paper. I mean, not only did it test yr. 11 stuff, not on the HSC syllabus, but it was all Employment relations... and employment relations [with a little global thrown in].

Basically, Q29 was about EXACTLY the same stuff that some of the short response questions were about!!?? What were they thinking?

"WOW! Hey! Lets test em on the EXACT same thing TWICE.... in the ONE exam!!!"

Very poor guys. very poor indeed

The paper did test a lot of employment relations and probably should have spread the content a little more but just as a lot of people found the exam hard, a lot found it faily easy. So obviously it wasnt that bad if a rather large proportion of people could do the paper... and anyway, the HSC is a course designed to go over 2yrs with yr 12 an extension of yr 11 so if anything, the exam was easier because it tested basic skills of business studies.

agreed..

Yes, very true. I do agree, and I can't complain because I think I did okay, but it certainly could have been fairer. Yr.11 content may certainly be simpler too, but it doesn't help when you decide to follow guidelines and not study it :p

But anyway, I just hope everyone gets the marks they deserve and are not left feeling cheated because of the paper.

I am most overjoyed that you liked the paper. But who said the paper being simple had anything to do with it? If you must know, I am a top level student that certainly knew what to do... and was just surpirsed at the repetitive nature of the exam.

Try and have a bit of compassion also for those others out there who didn't find the paper quite as 'simple' as you and don't just look for an opportunity to boast. May I suggest that if you found the questions so 'simple' you may indeed have missed the true complexity of the issues they encapsulated? Also... understand that everyone has their own opinion.

Poor form my friend. Poor form. Stop wasting your time and go study Maths or something. I am :D

Good luck everyone!! [You too Sourie!]

Well i dont think it was soo bad. Sure they tested a lot of employment relations, but it would make it easier if u knew about employment relations cause u would have already done it and be repeating ur self. Its understnadable this reliance on employment relations, after all any business bomb would know that employees are a business most valuable asset not to mention the single largest expense.

It wasnt that bad, i gave it my best shot and got on with the job. i liked the exam actually, made me feel good after struggling a bit in Advanced english.

Business studies is about text book regurgitation and syllabus point dropped... and i dont think that i did either of those very well at all!
