Sounds like you lot are all playing in the Space Invader Parlours. Credits were your 20 cent pieces you loaded into the game ... back in the day ;)

What happened to learning all year and then sitting a 3 hour exam that proved whether you knew it or not? (no, don't tell me, it's called NCEA and Cambridge High). Those who passed the exam succeded, and those who didn't ... FAILED. Yep, we had losers back then, and we have them now too, they just don't know it.

Anyway, young-uns, good luck for your exams. Hope your future employers understand whatever it is you passed :D

My first exam is on thursday. Actually my first two exams are on Thursday.

Dammit.

I'm alot more stressed than I'd liked ot have been, probably because I've only studied for three days as opposed to a few weeks.

Oh dear.

The most nerve-wracking part of it is that if I misread a question I can fail and my hopes tarnished. The only thing I can blame is NCEA for although these don't promise to be particularly hard, they are tricky in that so many different factors can stop one from getting excellence, merit, or even achieved - ones beyond the control of study. Take drinking water for example, and having a good night sleep.

</rant because I'm insecure>

I'm sure they can identify with my 2 credits in 'polishing a floor using a high speed polisher" :)

I do plenty of 15 minutes blocks with 3 hour blocks of random computer usage/gameplay.

I couldn't study properly if someone was paying me

Prescott

Well, I'm not up to NCEA yet *groan*. I just finished my Yr 10 exams which are basically just class placements. I arsed up my English one (part of it anyway) by not reading a question properly (probably cuz I was so tired from playing Halo II ^_^)

All done! I don't mean to be racist in saying this, but, as I have no more social studies next year (nor History) so we won't have to learn and write about the Treaty (it's been compulsory the past 4 years...)

Anyway, back to trying to get my videos working again, good luck to all you seniors!

That's funny, we worked out last year that our year ten exams meant absolutley nothing as everyone was split up because of all the different options everyone does in senior years :D

But meh, maths and french are over now...i just hope that not filling in the word count box doesn't lose me 3 credits B-)

well that was good!!
I haven't been very worried about it, and not much study (was only 2 papers, and its not like i'm gonna be a journalist or anything in future)
I'm sure the questions were exactly the same as last year's ones!!

Media Studies - more internals (3 or 4) than ex, but do stuff like film reviews, make a short film, write a movie script, study audiences, genre etc etc

Bring on Accounting!

are you not doing level 2 english fergie?

fergie
11-11-2004, 06:04 PM
na, absolutely HATED english, not just in yr 11, but since primary school (nouns, verbs etc lol not fun!) and when they said the media studies course had the Uni requirements for literacy, i was first in!
but was pretty good, and the schools' even decided to run MS at level 3 next year, so if all went well today, i should be doing it next year!
