I kind of surprised at PE having long response questions, I would have thought it would be lots of recall questions. Thanks for giving me a heads up about that, and good luck. I don't study that much really. I'm only doing a hour a night, as they are my only HSC exams because I'm doing the rest next year. The school says two hours a night is what is required, but people only do that right before the exams normally. Although our school does well in the HSC, so thats probably why.

Nah mate, there's a few questions that start with things like justify, analyse, explain etc which are higher order verbs. No worries, you'll see what I mean when you do your year 11 half yearlies. An hour a night is quite a lot, I think our school has given up on trying to make us study. People generally only study the night before or less than a week before.

If there's anything else you need to know, just ask.

Chem has the same verbs, but I didn't think PE would have the same verbs. Cheers mate, I won't hesitate to ask if anything pops up.

Well I only have 1 exam left which is Maths now and that should be too hard. smile

So, Physics was a killer, I'm not expecting that good a mark in it.

Geography, I'm confident that I went pretty good

Graphics I winged and I think I went alright

PDHPE, it actually wasn't heaps hard but it was so much writing. We got two 8 mark questions and three 6 markers.

Thanks Rainiac, I reckon maths went pretty good. Only the multiple choice has been marked so far and 17/20 for that which is a good start I guess. The ones that have been marked:

Physics: 45% --> not really surprised
PDHPE: 71% --> fairly happy
Graphics: 53% --> difficult to study for, top mark was only 71%

Graphics sounds like a hard subject, if only 71% was the top mark, you did well just to pass on that. I'll be doing my Half year chem and Maths before the end of term. It funny how you've done them nearly a month before me.

It's not really that hard tbh, although the exams are fairly hard because it's a prac subject and therefore it's difficult for the teacher to prepare us for it. Yeah I'm not why yours are later than mine. At least you have more time to study. wink

Yep, its great that I have had this long to study, although theres only so much you can prepare yourself for tests. Fingers crossed I go decent in them. I will post how I went after I've done them.

And I have got another Chem test tomorrow too, although it won't be as long as the H/Yearly.

Yeah, keen to hear how you go. Good luck with your exams and don't get too stressed, although a bit of stress is probably good to motivate us.

Btw, Chem half yearly was 2.5 hours for us, so I'd assume it'll be the same for you.

Hope that those final subjects went well for you two!

Rainiac, I'm currently studying at UQ in Brisbane - great campus and it's close enough to so many good pubs wink

Cheers Xavo, sounds sounds like a nice Uni.

I did my test yesterday, and I feel like I didn't do too bad. I think I got above 70% anyway. My big two tests are still to come though.

And I think My chem paper does last 2.5hrs. My maths one only lasts 2 hrs though.

Good to hear the confidence mate, hopefully it's as you think it is!

And all the best for your next two, I'm sure you'll do well smile

Thanks mate, I ended up getting 73% for that task, only just over what I predicted. Not so confident about the Chem half yearly on Friday. The good thing is that it won't be too hard to study because of the lack of interesting weather here atm.

Great stuff rainiac, glad you went good in it.
And yeah, I can relate with the weather troubles lol. I always worry that there's going to be interesting weather during my exams to distract me.

My other two subjects were:

Maths-----> 75%
Geography-> 76%

So I'm fairly happy with these final subjects Xavo. There's move to improve of course, but I can't really complain with those marks.

Nice marks. Did you find geograhy to be the same difficulty as maths then? The good thing about the HSC is that is is in September/October so we study for it when it is reasonably dry and boring.

Thanks. Yeah I suppose so; they both weren't particularly challenging, although I thought I would do a bit better in Geography than I did. Short response let me down a fair bit. Maths I went better than I thought.

Yeah that's a good point. There's always the chance of some interesting weather though. 2012 and 2014 both had ECL's and snow to low levels in mid-Oct so I hope that isn't the case this year. Knowing our luck (or mine at least), there probs will be interesting weather!! poke

It sounds like you must have done well with all the other sections if you didn't do that well in your short response. Although it can be quite annoying when one section lets down what otherwise is a really good test.

Well its a win, win situation thinking about it. If the weather is mundane we can study easily, and if the weather is interesting then it'll still be a nice surprise, and we can claim responsibility for it. grin

I have had Trial HSC exams all week and overall they haven't been too bad. I haven't really stressed too much which has really surprised me, but physics is still to come..
It has been good that I haven't had any interesting weather to distract me. It's actually been perfect exam weather with low-mid 20s and sunny days all week.

Have you done your trials yet rainy?

Yea, I did them two weeks ago now. It's good that you didn't stress too much. I didn't either until I got in the exam room, then it was a little nerve racking. did your school do the exams early, because our school finished exams end of last week.
Have even got the results back already. 77% for Chem and 87% for maths. Probably a bit of a fluke, especially for Chem, because Ionly made one silly mistake in it. I normally drop at least 5% for silly mistakes per exam so I was pleased with that.
Good luck with physics. Seeing you only did them this week, you wouldn't have gotten any results back yet I suppose?
Oh yes, and we had the August average of 55 mm the night before my maths exam poke
