    Hi guys, Tomorrow I sit for my exit score tests... QCS... anyway. Im not particularly worried becuase well, you cant study for them. What I am worried about though is getting in there and having a mild freak out.

    I know you guys went through this not long ago, any tips for keeping calm incase the **** hits the fan?

    oooh good luck!!! erm keep yourself as busy as possible! go out, go shopping/window shopping, cinema, pub, day trip, anywhere. just get out the house and prevent yourself from sitting on UKL getting nervous!! (like i did) and have an early night

    Queensland Core Skills by order of the Queensland Studies Authority.
    ok we have 2 days of exams...

    1st Paper is a writing piece with an unseen stimulus... eg, one year it was faces, time, space etc... pretty easy, the only problem is thinking of an interesting story becuase you cant write any old piece of crap. We have 2 hours for that.

    2nd Paper is multiple chioce and that has questions from EVERY subject on it (supposedly!) we get 2 hours for that...

    The next day
    1st Paper, short response 2 hours, same deal
    2nd paper, the 2nd multi chioce. 2 hrs...

    Everything is unseen so you dont know whats on there. Thats why its gay, I mean there is a lot more maths **** on it than my other literary subjects that are worth more than maths.

    I think im just going to do 2 and a half hours at the gym..

    OK GOT THROUGH DAY 1!!!!

    Did fantastic on the first paper the writing piece, totally fu**ed up the unseen multi coice, many maths questions im like "f*&K! I dont do maths!" so it turned into a multiple guess form me.

    I suppose thats ok as well becuase it bassed on how well the school does as a whole not the individual (thank god) and we have pretty smart people here. Ill still get a great O.P though, fingers crossed.

    Hope things get better on day 2!
