What is everyone’s thoughts? I think a pretty decent paper overall! Both business report and essays seemed a bit too easy in my opinion, compared to last year, so there is a possibility that they’ll amp up the marking criteria.

How did everyone go?

I thought the test was great! the essays were good and so was the business report. i choose the question about performance objectives and operations strategy and basically choose three objectives and matching strategies integrating examples. I also though the short answer questions were nice as well :) and someone put up their teachers answers on facebook and i got 18-19 since i can't remember which one I choose for the downturn in economic question. but overall good test.

what do you think the cut-off will be? 90?
what do you think question 19 is. i basically just wrote selected the ones that were only on the critical path although the question didn't ask I kinda was just hoping it implied it. the girl online teachers selected the answer with all of the activities- d i think?

The exam wasn't too bad itself but I just cracked under pressure a little bit.
The essay and short answers were fine. Multiple choice was a little tricky, think I lost 1 mark.
I messed up the first half of the report pretty badly, since I didn't know the specific content under HR processes, so I sort of incorporated some HR strategy knowledge in there. I'm just worried I'll get kicked out of an A-range because of a lack of key words there. The rest of the report wasn't too bad.
Overall, definitely could've gone a lot better, but I can't do anything now.
Would be thrilled with anything above 92 to be honest  ;D
Hope everyone's HSC experience is going/went well!

A little bit hard to tell what the cut off will be at this stage. Still waiting to hear more feedback about the exam from teachers and students :)
