3. Explanation of HSC Marks (Moderating)

When moderating assessment marks do the board of studies take into account the gap between internal assessment marks? For example, if at one school the top student (Bob) was assessed at 98 and the 2nd student (Harry) at 89 and they both got an exam mark of 90; Bob: Assessed at 98, exam...
4. Official Assessment Ranks

My ranks are all good Biology: 1st Chemistry: 1st Physics: 1st PDHPE: 1st Mathematics: 1st Mathematics Ext 1: 2nd English (Advanced): 3rd

1. C 2. A 3. B 4. C 5. B 6. D (however, it is B) 7. A 8. B 9. C 10. C 11. D 12. A 13. D 14. D 15. A I got 14/15. Yeah woo!!
6. Raw Marks

What do you think you got? Does anyone know what raw mark you would need for a Band 6 in PE? Im hoping for 95 raw
7. scaling

Damn that paper was too easy! I got 97 raw in my trial and i thought it was a harder exam than this. Im worried that the state average will be too high and there wont be much separation between the good biology students and the outstanding ones. Hence, if u made a few silly mistakes it could...
8. 4 (c) Probability

She chooses 3 "DIFFERENT" squares meaning P(white) = 32/64 x 31/63 x 30/62. It would only be 1/2 x 1/2 x 1/2 if she was able to choose the same square. However, i can see what the other people are saying and either method should obtain full marks if done correctly due to a fucked up worded...
9. Maths Ext 1 - General thoughts on the exam

One word: FUCKED!! Im looking at a raw mark of 55-65, shit!
10. Mathematics - General thoughts on the exam

Oh FUCK! I just realised that in question 1, I sketched y = [x] + 4 and not y = [x + 4]. Oh well im confident thats the only marks i'll lose besides 5-6 in 10(b) so i'm still looking at 110+

My teacher confirmed my answers and concluded that i will get 18 to 20 out of 20 1. D 2. B 3. A 4. A 5. C 6. B (possibly C) 7. B 8. A 9. C 10. A 11. B 12. B 13. C 14. D 15. B 16. D 17. D 18. D 19. D 20. D
12. Mathematics - General thoughts on the exam

I smashed everything up till 10 (b) which then fucked me in the arse. Overall though, i probably should get somewhere between 108 and 115 so im pretty happy with that
13. Length contraction???

The answer is 0.3m, trust me. Whoever says it is 0.19 is suggesting that the whole cathode ray tube is moving at 0.6c. The length of the electron will contract relative to the scientists but it is the only thing moving inside the tube. No matter what speed the electron moves at relative to the...
14. What raw mark u aiming for and band

Hoping for a 87-90 raw mark and hopefully a band 6 scaled mark
15. General thoughts on the exam

I thought it was overall a pretty good paper. I had some trouble with a couple of multiple choices and the gravitational potential energy and distance between the rods question but i think im looking at 85-90 as a raw mark
16. Length contraction???

Hey yeah i got 0.3m too. Because the length contraction occurs in the electron's frame of reference so relative to the electron the distance will be shorter (0.24m). However, in the laboratory the actual distance will be 0.3m. I was stressing over this question cos i didnt know in which frame...
17. Want to compare multiple-choice answers?

1. C - g varies according to Gm/r2 and G is the universal gravitation constant 2. B - when the centripetal force of the string is removed, the mass will move horizontally perpendicular to its centre of motion. 3. D - M-M experiment shows the constancy of speed of light which provides...
18. General Thoughts: English Adv. Paper 2 (Modules)

Module A: moral order? wtf? I wrote some good stuff for this though once i got my head around the question. Module B: Yeats fitted perfectly for age and youth. In 'Sailing to Byzantium' yeats advancing age impels his journey and in 'The Wild Swans at Coole' the beautiful, affectionate young...
19. one gene - one protein?

The one gene - one protein hypothesis simply means that each gene on our chromosomes is controlled by a specific protein. Without this protein (or enzyme) the gene would not function properly. This was demonstrated by Beadle and Tatum when they showed that bread mould after being exposed to...
20. Titration problem

Question 17 (b) in the 2005 STANSW Trial Paper: A student used the titration process to determine the concentration of a potassium hydroxide solution. She found that 25.00 mL of a 0.1 mol/L sulfuric acid solution reacted with exactly 10.00 mL of the potassium hydroxide solution. Calculate the...
