it was a good paper, but what was with all the extended responses?
was that the normal amount of extended response questions? i've never seen so many on an exam paper.

argh i didn't get time to read over my answers either, it usually makes me more confident after an exam when i read over my answers, now ill be left wondering :(

They were the exact same mark allocations as they were last year... two eight marks , one ten etc... dont know why it was so much harder to finish. PRobably cause the mark allocations themselves were wrong

The 2 civil pre-trial procedure problems I did financial barriers, that ADR and VCAT help overcome this obstacle, and Soical and cultural difference, and that CALD mediators overcome this.

The exam was so long, half way through I thought I mya be running tight for time so I did the last quesiton mid way through incase I did.

was a good exam and i finished with time to spare... i had the same queries firstly with the "advice" quesiton i agreed on both parts as the case cvould have been heard i nthe county court and also appeals could have gone 2 both the county and supreme court based on purpose of appeal

also the civil pre-trial question was really my only other query, i used time and costs(low socio economic standing) and related it 2 problems.. lol

im happy overall

What pissed me off was 'Explain TWO High Court cases' 2?? WTF I purposely learn one case for each thing, so I did Brislan and Tas Dams case, but bullshitted it a bit

i could have explained 5 or 6 cases, what was annoying was that they only allocated what 4 marks for it? should have been more

i did tasmanian dams and brislan as well, but i had the biggest mental blank when it came to brislan.

i couldn't think of the impact of that decision, then i calmed myself down and it came back to me!

Yeah 4 marks was stupid for such a question, and could have provided more lines to give you 6 marks easily.

I knew two in detail. Any more would be stretching it. Pissed me off that was only worth 4 marks. Lol. I dont think I will get 8/8 for the extended questions.. Imagine how much you would have to write!

The only other thing which I think I messed up on was going a bit overboard on the "two cases that have changed the division of powers" question... I wrote an entire extra page, which meant I lost about 5-10 minutes of time.


oooh wasn't that what i wrote my paper on ^^

What did you actually have to say when talking about the impact?
I said for eg. for franklin dam the effect on law making powers was that the commonwealths law making powers increased because they can now legislate using their 'external affairs' power to legislate in areas that were previously state powers....
something like that
I knew detail for them too.
Eg.
R. Brislan (1935)
S51 (v) "postal, telegraphic and other like services"
The Wireless Telegraphy Act ( 1905)

Franklim Dam Case (1983)
S51 (xxix) "external affairs"
