Yeah, I agree with you aswell, but I've also heard otherwise- that cortisol is also released in small amounts in countershock, but mainly adrenaline (and sympathetic NS- FFF), as it is a short-term response to stress. After, when the body reaches resistance stage, a more long-term way to deal with the stress is achieved through the release of cortisol alone, without adrenaline.

This might contradict other answers, but according to the Oxford textbook (pg90), cortisol, adrenaline and noradrenaline are released in countershock phase, and cortisol continues to be released and circulated around the body in the resistance phase. I'm not sure if you trust wikipedia, but it also says the same thing as this textbook. I've checked a few other sites and they say more or less the same thing too. However, there are also some resources saying cortisol is released in resistance only... soooo idk. I guess just know it is definitely released in resistance phase - that's all you need to know for the most likely questions on cortisol anyways (about how it increases susceptibility to illness)

Yeah exactly! See now I'm just worried that I will say the wrong thing.. I don't know what to do. My textbook (jacaranda) doesn't mention cortisol being released in countershock, but yours does, and I've heard it from others. I'm assuming (hoping) they will give us the mark for saying either opinion, because different resources are saying conflicting things!

Okay, so I do agree with cortisol being released in the in the aftershock stage, but it my only be released in SMALL AMOUNTS. The resistance stage is Predominately CORTISOL and the counter shock stage is PREDOMINANTLY ADRENALINE. There may be other hormones released during the stages, but adrenaline and cortisol are the MAIN hormones released in the counter shock and resistance stage respectively.

this explanation sounds reasonable to me

VCAA will always mark it as correct if it's in a textbook - words from my teacher who is an examiner.

Is that from the ACED exam or Access? I think I remember doing it- I crossed it out, it made no sense!

Guys, just wondering, what order do you complete the sections of the exam?

I tend to do it from start to end: MC, short answer then the 10-marker.

What about you guys? and how do you find timing when doing it in your particular order?

I also completed the exam in the way you and finished all the questions with 10 minutes to spare for checking and improving answers.
There is no real cut and dry way of doing it.
Some do the 10-mark question first and for others the short-answer. It is mainly a personal choice, it wouldn't worry too much about what you do.

If you find that you are going overtime, identify the reason for it.
Is it because your don't know the content well?
Are you putting too much information in your answer?
It may not have to do with the order you do it in, but feel free to experiement in your practice exams.
Jack of all trades, master of none.
Hence why i'm in all these different threads and boards.

Hi guys when i have been doing practice exams, especially the sample exam for this year, I keep losing marks for not defining something.
Im not sure when I should or shouldn't include a definition when a question doesn't even ask for one?
A lot of questions allocate one mark just for defining a concept but other times they don't
Any advice for knowing when to include a definition???

thank you

Hi guys, i just need some clarification. Depressants clearly put you into ASC but apparently stimulants do put you into ASC as well, so does that mean a stimulant like caffeine would put you into ASC? Thanks
