Hey everyone, are the suggested answers on the HSC economics marking guidelines band 6 level? (Or for the short answers, for example, are they worthy of full marks?)
Thanksss

no not at all, if you were to put that in a top 10 selective exam, you'd probably get a band 4 or maybe a band 5 (they have 0 stats and just skim through the info, the answers aren't proper)

if you look at exemplar answers in the hsc in those exam workbooks nesa publishes they do the same things as the marking guidelines and they explain theory in depthish but concise as possible with no stats which isn't necessary for full marks on MOST questions based mainly on theory eg how does exchange rate affect NPY? or something (however stats should be used on a case study short answer or policy short answers) but include stats if you have time

yep, the exemplar responses are pretty decent but the marking guidelines are horrible

Most of the suggested answers are what you would call a fingertip band 6, so just reaching what is required to reach the top band of marks. They are generally short but concise so unless you are able to completely understand the nuances of the question, it would be better to write more in-depth than the suggested answers.

stats in short answer from what I have heard aren't nessecary for full marks but it can impress markers (you have to balance time tho u want time for ur essays). Essays the more stats and facts the merrier (as with any essay in any subject obviously).
