“When you enjoy something, the brain has an amazing way of retaining so much knowledge about it, which comes in very handy when you’re lacking motivation and have some major exams coming up,” she said.

“One thing I would warn against is completely cutting out distractions like Netflix or sports for the entirety of the exam period, but rather using them as a break and relaxation.

“After each exam, come home and watch an episode or go do an activity that requires little to no brain power so you can supply yourself a well-needed rest. Prioritise your own wellbeing.”

Hens said she felt it didn’t matter what she got in the HSC because the skills for life she developed throughout her HSC journey was what real-world employers look for, and it would provide many career opportunities.

“The plans you make yourself in Year 12 about your future career or life goals will most likely change as soon as you’re finished anyway,” she said. “I’ve changed my mind 1000 times since graduating; from uni to moving states and so on.

“I took a year off to work out what I really wanted to do. Now I’m studying to be a veterinary nurse at TAFE. I bought myself a horse [which was a childhood dream] and have had some irreplaceable experiences in various jobs that I’d never previously imagined myself doing.”

Top tips from science teachers

Ami Morrow from Merewether High School.

Ami Morrow, Teaching Quality Advisor, Science Faculty, Merewether High School

Working scientific skills are a vital component of the Biology syllabus. Key skills to practise include:

  • identifying experimental variables (independent, dependent and controlled) and the use of a control
  • interpreting, tabulating and graphing first-hand data, and assessing its validity, reliability, accuracy and precision
  • understanding the role of models in biology, and their advantages and limitations
  • evaluating the validity, reliability and accuracy of secondary sources

Many HSC exam questions will require you to apply your knowledge, understanding and skills to unfamiliar situations. Questions often provide stimulus material in the form of diagrams, flow charts, tables, graphs, scenarios or examples that you are not familiar with. Don’t panic! Take the time to pick apart the stimulus and think carefully about what information or conclusions you can draw from it.

For written questions with stimulus, rather than regurgitating the knowledge that you have on the topic, think about how you can apply what you know to the scenario being presented. Be sure to support your response with specific information or data from the stimulus material.

Tips for longer questions

  1. Plan your answer
  • Underline keywords and note any plurals or the specific number of examples the question asked you to refer to (if the question asks you to use two examples, select the best two that support your answer).
  • Spot the specific requirements of the questions. In this question: Explain the loss of biodiversity that may result from TWO biotechnologies used in agriculture’, a specific requirement is agriculture. This means your examples of biotechnology must relate to agriculture.
  • Use a scaffold to help you plan (eg PEEL: Point, Evidence, Explanation, Link). You can also use headings or subheadings to supply your response a logical structure.

2. Support your answer where appropriate using:

  • examples
  • dot points
  • diagrams
  • tables
  • flowcharts


Kathy Barbeler, head teacher science, Gosford High School

Key terms

Know the meaning of the following terms and how to apply them to your investigations and procedures:

  • validity
  • reliability
  • accuracy

Tables, graphs and diagrams

  • Follow scientific conventions when drawing tables, graphs and diagrams. Provide titles, labelled axes with units, clear data points and smooth lines of best fit where appropriate.
  • Think about which quantity is the independent variable and which is the dependent variable. Represent these on the graph accordingly, with the independent variable usually on the x-axis.
  • Practise drawing graphs ahead of the exam, including calibration curves, the titration graphs and enthalpy of neutralisation graphs.
  • Think about appropriate scales – as a general guide use at least three-quarters of the provided grid.

Scientific experiments

  • Revise the equipment you used, the chemicals and quantities. You should be able to summarise and explain the results obtained.
  • Think about how your results may have differed from expected results, what caused this difference, and how you could Boost your investigation.
  • Use scientific theory to explain your results.

Chemical equations

  • Provide the states of matter, as they are under standard conditions.
  • Think about whether an equilibrium arrow should be used.
  • Look for ways the modules are connected (e.g. you might link the organic structures in Module 7 to the spectroscopy tools in Module 8 and how functional groups are used to identify compounds).
  • Do a final sense check of your answer (e.g. make sure you have converted to litres for volumes).

Exam question:

Millions of people around the world take drugs known as statins, which have been shown to reduce the incidence of heart attacks and strokes in vulnerable patients. However, up to 20 per cent of people stop taking statins due to side effects such as muscle aches, fatigue, feeling sick and joint pain.

A exact study at a public hospital focused on 60 patients who had all stopped taking statins in the past due to severe side effects. Patients took statin tablets for four months, placebo tablets for four months and no tablets for four months.

Every day for the year the patients scored, from zero to 100, how bad their symptoms were. The results are shown.


Evaluate this study and its results.

Student answer:

The results seem to suggest the statin tablets have little effect in increasing symptoms compared to placebo tablets, and only slightly more than no tablets.

Taking statin results in a score of 16.3, whereas placebo tablets resulted in 15.4. These are very similar and so potentially suggest the statin tablets have no real impact on the symptoms. However, the ‘no tablets’ only scored 8.0, which suggests the tablets/placebo do have a negative effect on the symptoms or at least the idea of taking them do, when compared to past experience.

However, this study is largely invalid. It uses a trial size of only 60 people (all likely from similar location of near the hospital), which means the results could be largely swayed by outliers. Ideally thousands of people should participate in epidemiological studies.

Also, the study was only over a very short period of four months, so you cannot draw conclusive results from it as the effect could be more long-term.

Finally, the method of data collection (patients self-scoring symptoms) is very invalid as every person feels and rates symptoms differently, so that cannot accurately provide data about the effects of each treatment. Therefore, the study is very invalid and so the results drawn from it are not representative of the whole population.

Marker comments:

The response interprets the data supplied in the table to evaluate the validity of the design of this study of statins and associated side effects. The judgment quite correctly challenges the validity of this study by demonstrating an understanding of the principles behind a valid scientific study.

Exam question:

Bohr, de Broglie and Schrödinger each proposed a model for the structure of the atom.

How does the nature of the electron proposed in each of the three models differ?

Bohr model.Credit:NESA

Student answer:

Bohr: planetary model proposed electrons orbiting a dense nucleus in fixed shells, stationary states. He did not explain why they orbited like this, but on observing hydrogen atoms, found electrons dropping from a higher orbit to a lower orbit emitted a photon with E = hf, utilising Planck’s quantisation of energy. Similarly, when they moved to higher shells, they absorb a photon. In Bohr’s model, the electron was a particle.

de Broglie: standing wave orbitals used to explain why electrons only orbited in Bohr’s stationary states. He also combined classical physics and quantum mechanics by linking momentum and waves with his wave equation, λ = h/mv. He showed the wave nature of electrons in orbit while still having momentum like a particle.

de Broglie model.Credit:NESA

Schrodinger: suggested electron cloud orbitals in the shape of dumbbells which fully embraced the quantum mechanical properties of electrons. Upon measuring their velocity or position, one can only measure one accurately. Thus, his wave equation gave insight into the probabilities of where an electron was likely to be.

Schrodinger model.Credit:NESA

Bohr → de Broglie → Schrodinger’s atomic models suggested an increasing quantum nature to the electron.

Marker comments:

This response is clearly structured and provides a detailed description of the electron in each model. The response also shows how the nature of the proposed electron differs in each model. The use of simple diagrams complements the answer.

PMI® expects project management jobs to grow by more than 31% through 2027, creating a total of 22 million new project management jobs.1 Earning potential for project management workers is also strong – particularly for workers with the PMP certification. A 2020 PMI survey found that PMP-certified workers earned 22% more than those without certification.2

The project management MBA offers a unique mix of project management skills and broad-based business knowledge that can help you stand out in this growing field.

Gina Cravedi with text Gina Cravedi“This degree will not only prepare you to carry a project management certification but it provides you the business acumen to put those project skills to work with any industry and any project model environment,” said Gina Cravedi '18, SNHU’s director of marketing operations, an MBA graduate and certified Project Management Professional (PMP).

Project managers can work in a variety of industries, including:

  • Construction or engineering
  • Healthcare or government agencies
  • Information technology or manufacturing
  • Food service and hospitality
  • Music and entertainment

Throughout these fields, project managers play an important role in the process of moving projects, organizations and entire industries forward. Supply chain management, for example, relies on the expertise of project managers to run its processes smoothly and maintain availability of essential goods and services.

A project management MBA can teach you the in-demand skills needed to succeed in one of these critical project management jobs:

  • Program or project manager: Project managers oversee a project from start to finish. They make sure the scope and goals of the project are on track. Project managers typically work closely with company leadership and may be supported in their roles by other project management positions.
  • Project risk manager: Before any project begins, a project risk manager is tasked with analyzing market and operational risks. Risk managers create and communicate risk mitigation policies and processes for a project’s workers.
  • Project cost estimator: Project cost estimators gather and analyze data to estimate the amount of time, money, materials and labor needed for a project. They work to ensure a project is completed on time and within budget.
  • Project procurement manager: Once a budget is set, a project procurement manager communicates with vendors to source supplies, equipment and service contracts. Procurement managers seek the most cost-effective and quality products for the project at hand.
  • Project quality manager: Maintaining project quality from start to finish is the job of a project quality manager. Quality managers monitor the performance and outcome of a project and identify any areas of quality improvement needed.

Job growth and earning potential for project management careers will vary depending on the career you pursue with your project management MBA.

Construction managers, for example, earned a median salary of $95,260 in May 2019. Jobs for construction managers are projected to grow 8% through 2029. General and operations management jobs are projected to grow 6% through 2029. The median annual wage for these positions was reportedly $100,780 in 2019.3

Your project management MBA can also help you prepare for a career as an operations research analyst, using data to drive better business decisions. Jobs in this field are projected to grow 25% through 2029 with a reported median salary of $84,810 in 2019.3

Not sure you want to work as a project manager? The skills gained in a project management MBA can help you develop key leadership and career skills that enhance any business management position.
