+1I think there should be a time limit because its not only testing knowledge, but being able to think quickly and perform under ressure. Its basically an aptitude test for uni.
take a penalty, then tell me that.and my apologies annabackwards and shortseptember but outside of a crazy gameshow setting, I dont think you will ever have to perform under pressure as you would in the hsc. pressure just comes from lack of preparation, and in life you are always given time to prepare
pffff, exactly my pointjoin the army, then tell me that.
haha, you know Ive never actually taken one in a competitive match, despite being in a few shootouts. but I've practiced, I know the ball belongs in the net, I'm sure I can send him home.take a penalty, then tell me that.
No... shut up you're a fucking moron.pffff, exactly my point
if you had prepared enough in your life, you could make something of yourself and do something you enjoy, rather than join the army and live a life of violence
will I ever work in advertising, government, legal, etc? no. I am choosing to study something I enjoy. if you enjoy advertising and all that comes with it, then all the power to you, go and have fun.No... shut up you're a fucking moron.
There are many situations where you are under time pressure.
"Jim, we just got this high level request, can you write a report on this for tomorrow"...
"Ah no, because I need at least 4 hours to prepare solid points then 3 for each point..."
Try working in any sort of advertising, Government, legal etc framework where you don't have the time to sit down and prepare answers. You have to do your job very quickly and make super efficient use of your time.
cmon, be serious. they dont occur if you prepare.I love how you claim as a 1 year out of school student that these situations do not occur in real life, when some of us have already experiend real situations like this.
again, if you want to fight in the army then go ahead. I know a few friends that went down that route, it was their choice. but if they chose to fight in the army, then they choose to be involved in those high pressure situationsAnd your point about the army is ridiculous. What if you get joy out of knowing that doing your job means that the men, women and children of your country can rest comfortably in their beds without having to worry... same as if you joined the police force. My cousin joined the army and did computer science. He now works for the government with Top Secret clearance doing defense and treasury network security... and he loves it.
There are actually probably just as many people with highly skilled, not combatant roles in the army as there are footsoldiers...
Im not talking about people that want to join the army more than anything else, and Im not comparing joining a uni and joining ADFAget fucked - it's harder to become an officer than it is to get into uni and get a job - because they only take people who have certain qualities/personality/skills.
EDIT: it actually requires a lot more preparation to join the adf than to go straight to uni
why, no one agrees with you.Im not talking about people that want to join the army more than anything else, and Im not comparing joining a uni and joining ADFA
(lol, this has gotten out of hand. open up a thread somewhere else and send me the link if you would like to debate the topic further.)
Are you serious man, what pressure? Any kind of pressure i felt during the HSC has been dwarfed by the pressure i feel at uni, after having moved out etc. I just don't think the HSC exams are that stressful.and my apologies annabackwards and shortseptember but outside of a crazy gameshow setting, I dont think you will ever have to perform under pressure as you would in the hsc. pressure just comes from lack of preparation, and in life you are always given time to prepare
This.but i think the use of time limit is to distinguish the people who know their information right off to those who have to think harder to try search for the info
Kind of my point...'hey boss can i have an unlimited time to do the design you sent me? i mean i can show you everything i know and hopefully a part of the knowledge is right and score brownie points, OR i can just stfu and do it to the best of my ability in which you can judge me on my performance under pressure within a time constraint'
which fuckin idiot actually thought this was a good idea?
