HSC Watch

JESSICA DOUGHERTY has finished her HSC and she couldn't be happier.

Her biology exam on Friday was her last and she breezed through it.

"It was a lot shorter than some of the other ones and if I had to choose a favourite exam that would be the one," she said.

On Thursday she had two exams in physical education theory and three unit mathematics.

"There were a few tricky questions in the phys-ed one but it was okay, I enjoyed the sports medicine unit the most," she said.

Other topics included health and sports improvement.

As for maths, she felt she had performed confidently and is hoping her name will be in the paper for scoring 19 or over in a subject.

JARED CALLAGHAN is on the home run, he only has one more exam this Friday. Last Thursday he had his three unit mathematics exam and compared with his two unit, one was pleasantly surprised.

Unlike the two unit exam, where all of the questions were difficult, the three unit ranged in difficulty.

"I feel sorry for the people who only did two unit," he said.

Yesterday Jared also had his last English exam, which was based on the genre of crime fiction.

It included looking at a picture of a burning car and a lady in a white wedding dress.

"We had to creative writing and make up a story about what had happened I wrote that she murdered her husband and was burning the evi- dence," Jared said.

JOSH O'Brien was surprised by his English exam yesterday, and not pleasantly.

"I didn't do as well as I hoped I would have ? the questions shocked me a little bit and I didn't like it," he said.

"It was a creative writing task and it was a bit left field, I didn't see the relevance of it because it wasn't similar to a lot of stuff we've been studying."

Josh said while he won't be losing any sleep on the results, he would have preferred to have done a bit better.

His next exam is physics on Friday.

"I'm really not looking forward to it at all," he said.
