The trials are over. You have just completed a task of epic proportions - don't underestimate it! Was it hard? Did you expect anything else? Well done on your efforts - though I can't honestly say I am enjoying the marking. =P

I promised that in the time between now and the actual HSC exam, we would be spending time looking at some of the nooks and crannies of the course material that we weren't able to dwell on before, so that I could make sure we got all the way to the end of all the main topics before the trial. I will make good on that promise in the weeks to come. However, to give you a bit of a 'break' from actually learning new content, I want us to spend today's double on something a little different - you get to be me for a little while!

I'll explain more in the lesson itself, but here are the essential details you'll want to keep in your head as you go about this activity.

What should be included in each question?
  • Links to base article / webpage
  • Related questions (see HSC keywords and past papers) - aim to have 3-5 questions of varying difficulty per article (remember that they do not have to be directly related to the article itself, but may include questions related to content that is associated with the article's subject)
  • Marks assigned to each question
  • Categorise by topic (i.e. PM, DB, CS, MM, DSS, several)

What should be included in each answer?
