James Ruse Past Exams

These exam papers are provided “as is”. I have long since gradu­ated (high school and uni!) and no longer have access to newer papers. The con­tent of the maths and sci­ence syl­lab­uses are more or less the same so this shouldn’t matter.

  • where are the maths ext 2 papers…:(

  • do you have any maths ext 2 papers by any chance?

  • I’m afraid not, I didn’t do 4U maths.

  • do u hav any past papers for economics?

  • No. Past eco­nom­ics papers are all quite util­it­arian any­way, they are all pretty much the same. The Ruse ones are not all that special.

  • I was just won­der­ing, do you have past exams for any other sub­jects?
    Like Mod­ern His­tory or English?

    The ones put up are great though! :)

  • Sorry Maskva, the ones above are all I have :(

  • Omg and not one single thankyou!!! Thanks for these resources man I’m sure many are mak­ing use of them

  • thankyou! this is very very appreciated!

    http://www.angelfire.com/ab7/fourunit/
    http://www4.tpgi.com.au/nanahcub/me2.html

    all the papers you could ever desire…

    also, Dan.. what’s going on with this refugee guar­an­tee thing? the link isn’t work­ing… and is there any­thing else like this? i’m not a big fan of australia’s refugee policy (or should i say Howard’s refugee policy) and would wel­come any way to express this…

    Beej

    M.

  • Thanks heaps man, these exams are so much fun.

  • I would first like to say thankyou very, very much. the papers you have given are great and now i will wor­ship you!! tanks

  • hey do you know were i can get past cath­olic tri­als it will be appreciated

  • do you have any past trial Eng­lish exams

  • As a ruse stu­dent i feel you should take down the ruse papers.

  • As a ruse stu­dent i feel you should take down the ruse papers.

    Why? Their only use is edu­ca­tional, so they should be avail­able to all students.

  • As a ruse stu­dent i feel you should add some SDD past papers.

  • Do you have any Pre­lim past exams?
    x

  • As a ruse stu­dent i believe there should be 4u maths papers regard­less of whether u did it or not :D

  • do you have any chem­istry prac­tical exams?

  • hey when i try to print the maths exams .. the font comes out really big. it doesnt print as it is viewed. is that sup­pose to happen ?

  • you should take down these papers. they are only on the school intranet for a reason. hav some respect for your school-its good to you

  • Why should they be taken off? They will only be used for edu­ca­tional pur­poses, so every­one can benefit.

  • the school is strict about con­fid­en­ti­al­ity of its pro­grams etc and i think stu­dents should respect that or go to a dif­fer­ent school

  • also ruse student
    June 28th, 2008 at 9:41 pm

    agreed. and bey­ond con­fid­en­ti­al­ity, other schools don’t share resources (esp. poshy schools) so why should ruse?

  • Do you have any pre­lim papers

  • ruse resources should stay within its populace

  • akn­woledge and salute to your efforts, let not my false bravado hinder your purposes.

  • these tri­als rock. thank u :)

  • hey. do u have any busi­ness or legal past tri­als?? or even maths general????

  • if u go to James Ruse, how did u get ur hands on other schools’ past papers???

    I’m not com­plain­ing, just curious

    Good job, really appre­ci­ate it.

  • you should take them down

  • Do you have any past papers for Mod­ern History?

  • ruse u fkn losers geeks,, except DAN
    July 17th, 2008 at 12:48 pm

    all thos fkn ruse stu­dents who thinks these resources should be put down, u guys are bloody tigh­tass dick­heads.. sorry but we ARE NOT AS SMART ASFKN GEEKS ! u think u guys are so top shit cause u go to the no.1 select­ive school… and u have no con­sid­er­a­tion for oth­ers.. whereas dan has shown that he isnt a soar loser like u idi­ots and its great to c that there is actu­ally some people in ruse that do have a heart.. not just a brain…
    any­ways thankx heaps dan…too bad the rest of the ruse stu­dents are selfish fuk faces who are too smart for their own good.

  • I second that… thank u

  • non-ruse student
    July 19th, 2008 at 11:52 am

    yeh.. i agree with that com­ment above..
    most ruse kids are losers… hav no life.. and are selfish bas­tards..
    its good to see that dan is doing his best to give a good repu­ta­tion to ruse.

  • good point.
    i dir­ect my com­ment to ruse dux 2004. im assum­ing that you got dux for the geeki­est school in the world… then why are you com­plain­ing about people get­ting ruse’s resources?.. you have obvi­ously gradu­ated… i cant see any reason why other people hav­ing ruse’s resources would affect you in any way.… o wait.. i do have a reason.. YOURSELFISH BASTARD WHO DOSEN’T HAVELIFE AND ALL YOU THRIVE ON IS SEEING OTHER PEOPLE SUFFER BECAUSE OF YOUR INTELLECTUAL ABILITIES.. well im cer­tain that you dont have a social life… so i say you just go back to your room and lock your­self up and stick a book to your fore­head cause thats prob­ably the only thing your good at..
    Thanks to dan, some people do actu­ally think ruse is a worth­while school.. not just a school for geeks.

  • its not per­sonal but in life for things to go people need to be hon­est and some­times toe the party line. if u want to put up ur own notes then u are obvi­ously free to do so and as a ruse stu­dent i share my notes with my peers, how­ever, when you go to ruse u agree to fol­low its rules and thus it is not fair to then go against this in put­ting up resources over which u have no right. and btw we do have lives

  • Dude, other select­ive schools have a col­lec­tion of past papers from most select­ive schools. For example my school has papers from ruse, sydney boys , north sydney etc…while other schools like fort st will have papers from sydney tech and others..The schools aren’t tight with these papers..

  • Wow, thanks for the papers.
    Ruse papers are pretty dif­fer­ent.
    At my school, they mainly give us CSSA and Private School papers for prac­tice, and they’re easier in my opinion.

  • U legend. Thanks for shar­ing. Ruse papers for Ext2 are insane.

  • wooo simply sub­lime what youve done here…all those ruse fags should go get a life!

  • dir­ec­ted at [not happy dan] — > just shutup will ya.. just shut up and get a life you james ruse pat­ri­otic f**k.. you might aswell com­mit your life to james ruse aye… haha..sigh…talking about rules… you are a ser­i­ous geek

  • giiiiiiiiiiiiiii

  • ASRUSE STUDENTBELIEVE YOU SHOULD SHUT THA FCK UP

  • shar­ing is caring dik face

  • just lol

  • Agreed with above. stfu ruse students.

  • As a ruse student

    I don’t believe you should call every­one who attends ruse a “fuck­ing geek with no life” because you do not know every­one at my school and let’s face it, it reflects poorly on you and helps per­petu­ate ste­reo­types about how classy pub­lic school stu­dents are.

    That said those Ruse stu­dents who do not wish to share are a minor­ity. My fel­low Rus­i­ans, you for­get
    resources don’t mean a single thing, if you don’t have super scal­ing, like we do. The rest of the world are free to use them and gasp in awe, while we con­tinue to dom­in­ate the HSC =)

  • DOES ANY ONE HAVE ANY MODERN HISTORY PAPERS!!! I WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE THAT AND BE HAPPY TO EXCHANGE MATHEMATICS 2U, Ext 1 and Ext 2

  • ruse stu­dent just stfu u stu­pid arro­g­rant prick

  • dear stfu

    you don’t know me. so i wouldn’t make such rash assess­ments. i know you’re jeal­ous. i would be too.

  • For all you up tight ruseys!

    I got Ruse. Decided not to go. Happy I made that decision. I have a life. Unlike a lot of you.

    You should be grate­ful that you have the tal­ent, and it is your duty to help oth­ers, not to push them down.

    If you can’t handle the tal­ent respons­ibly, I can’t see why you have it.

  • Atten­tion all James Ruse stu­dents.… Des­pite your excel­lent aca­demic res­ults in the HSC every­one (without fail may i add) it is obvi­ous that Hurl­stone Agri­cul­tural Select­ive H.S pro­duces much more worldly and more socially samart stu­dents who not only achive bril­liant res­ults (per­haps not as great as yours) but also have a pur­pose in life other than study! By the way this is a com­ment dir­ectly towrds the snobby and uptight Ruse stu­dents, for the oth­ers I’m with u!
    By the way Dan respects for not being a snob andyes shar­ing IS caring! :)

  • Sorry about that i actu­ally think James Ruse is a bet­ter ag high school than us though.

    I would have prob­ably went if i made it, but who cares, that’s in the past.

  • hurlstone ---the original
    November 17th, 2008 at 8:35 pm

    omg who are you? what year? per­haps you dont have the hurl­stone pride and spirit…you belong to the hurl­stone family..you either embrace it or you leave it!

  • Oh shut up the lot of you.

  • as a ruse stu­dent, we > the rest.
    sdd papers nao.

  • readingmynameoutloudgivesyouherpes.andi'mnotfromruseifyouwerewondering.hah.herpes.
    December 10th, 2008 at 6:56 pm

    I WILL ASK AGAIN, DID Y’ALL JUST SEE SOME TITTIES?

    AIITE. NOW CALM THE FCK DOWN.

  • Hey have you asked any James Ruse stu­dents for newer papers?
    It would be much appre­ci­ated!
    As a sug­ges­tion, you could allow new Ruse stu­dents to upload their exams?

  • thanks for the papers lol.

  • dream on tastegud! maybe the situ­ation would be dif­fer­ent if we weren’t con­stantly being told to f off! you burn ur own bridges

  • hehe…agreed

  • Ruse students who believes in fairness. Class of 09 Christopher ___(try finding my last name fools)
    January 2nd, 2009 at 9:41 pm

    if you go to ruse, you should have access to so called ” exclus­ive papers” and extra stuff. This cre­ates an unfair dis­ad­vant­age to other HSC stu­dents. There­fore in the best interest of all HSC stu­dents, they should be dis­trib­uted evenly. So all you James Ruse bitches cry­ing out there, i go to Ruse as well. OH KNOW. DONT ATTACK ME WITH YOUR CALCULATORS

  • not really. every­one else has the papers for the school that they got into.

  • its called shar­ing mate. If we think we are too good com­pared to other schools, we shouldn’t give a damn if resources are spread around.

    As if you havnt given a cousin from another school ruse resources.

  • hey thank you very much

  • hey that’s great. It’s nice to see that people are shar­ing resources! Shar­ing is caring! btw, would you hap­pen to have any pre­lim papers? I’ve never seen the stand­ards of Ruse Pre­lim papers…

  • arrogant superior type
    February 25th, 2009 at 3:00 pm

    If you actu­ally read this: Do I go to Ruse? Guess.

  • well obvi­ously i go to ruse. i cant even spell ‘no’ correctly

  • um…well who­ever has set up this web­site is about to get in trouble by the teach­ers at ruse because they’ve found out and they’re not happy! (esp the maths dept) so yes, don’t say nobody warned you…

  • no you don’t go to ruse and if you say u do then we’ll all know who’s telling a white lie

  • no i dnt think private school stu­dents includ­ing myself are one bit jeal­ous of ur sad little school. YESGO TOPRIVATE SCHOOL SO IM BETTER THAN ALL OF YOU. But thnx to ur teach­ers for nice papers tho.

  • to arrogant one
    March 15th, 2009 at 9:43 am

    so you equate money with success?…and did you think the teach­ers put these up?
    You should be thank­ing us.

  • JMYZ(from St. Girls High)
    March 17th, 2009 at 6:29 pm

    i could hav went to james ruse if i worked harder but at least i got GREAT education

    PS:
    (thanks 4 the exam papers though, lol.)

  • Heyys
    Do u have any pre­lim­in­ary past papers?

  • This is sad. Giv­ing other people from ran­dom schools Ruse papers… because “shar­ing is caring” and it’s for “edu­ca­tional pur­poses which every­one must have”. Besides, only about 10 schools can actu­ally keep up with the Ruse paper standard.

    And for the guy who said, “YESGO TOPRIVATE SCHOOL SO IM BETTER THAN ALL OF YOU.”, you’re an arrog­ant dick­head who brags about how you have alotta money and shit. You fuck­ing rich snob. Say­ing that is kinda the same as racism.

  • P.S. If you’re from another school, get your own damn papers… or are you guys that sad that you need papers from other schools?

  • To the guy who said ‘all thos fkn ruse stu­dents who thinks these resources should be put down, u guys are bloody tigh­tass dick­heads.. sorry but we ARE NOT AS SMART ASFKN GEEKS ! u think u guys are so top shit cause u go to the no.1 select­ive school… and u have no con­sid­er­a­tion for oth­ers.. whereas dan has shown that he isnt a soar loser like u idi­ots and its great to c that there is actu­ally some people in ruse that do have a heart.. not just a brain…
    any­ways thankx heaps dan…too bad the rest of the ruse stu­dents are selfish fuk faces who are too smart for their own good.’, we have hearts, expect you’re like too poor and shit for use to show sym­pathy to?

    … selfish fuk faces” .. Learn to spell.

    and we are not “too smart…”, you’re just a dumbass.

  • getting papers from
    March 21st, 2009 at 1:15 am

    other schools just means that ur motiv­ated enough to do all kinds of ques­tions that can come up in the hsc, includ­ing the ones from JR which are pretty good.
    and i meant thnx to teach­ers for com­ing up with the papers, not for post­ing them.. pfft retard
    and yes BITCH PLEASE, I GO TOPRIVATE SCHOOL YOU PEASANTS MONEY IS SUCCESS.

  • not on the hairs of my chinny chin chin have i seen such good past papers.

  • to arrogant one
    March 27th, 2009 at 5:30 pm

    o’ the irony…declaring what a won­der­ful private edu­ca­tion you have while googling ruse papers!

  • but if WE didn’t put the papers up, the teach­ers cer­tainly wouldn’t have. So YES you should be thank­ing US. It’s not that I mis­un­der­stood your comment.

  • this is awe­some =D

  • stop bitch­ing you juven­ile fools. be grate­ful that dan is sup­ply­ing the resources. mak­ing acri­mo­ni­ous calls would if any­thing enc­ou­ar­age him to take down the site. as for the jrahs kids who are against the wide web dis­tri­bu­tion of resources– how did you get to this site– you obvi­ously were look­ing for resources too. by mak­ing out­land­ish state­ments, you’re only pro­ject­ing a neg­at­ive image of your school and its val­ues. look at the big­ger pic­ture, the hsc is noth­ing but a gate­way into the rest of your life– this com­pet­it­ive no-sharing non­sense is not going to take you any­where.
    on another note, stop ask­ing if there are addi­tional notes etc. yes its worth ask­ing, but obvi­ously the guys uploaded all the resources he has! ask your teach­ers for addi­tional resources, for they are a wealth of knowledge.

    much love and gl for the hsc !

  • no jr kids are not look­ing for resources cos we already have these and more. we’re just mak­ing a point

  • so youre on this web­site because? you’re so sad that you must make a point as pathetic as it is in your quest to be right. lol @ fail­ure in social life when you hit uni! we all know how jr people pan out!

    go study. NOW.

  • nah i’ll have all my jr friends at usyd med!

  • lol then youre severely deluded. what are the chances of you even get­ting into usyd med dude?

    and yea jr kids ban together. but thats about it. its not really a social life if you only con­verse with only one group of people whose only sim­il­ar­it­ies are big brains and even big­ger egos. im doing law at unsw (no name drop­ping inten­ded) and ser­i­ously, jr kids lack in the social depart­ment. its not meant to be a diss, but sadly the real­ity. stop think­ing youre super­ior (and dont com­ment back say­ing “yea we are”) and embrace the fact that what you thrive in one area, you lack in oth­ers, and every­one else is the same. period.

  • if you didn’t ‘intend’ to namedrop, you could’ve pressed the back­space key…seems you inten­tion­ally named­ropped to me!

  • HAHAH maybe he/she is mak­ing a point that he/she is bet­ter than you dude. And I second that.
    lol youre such a f**ken loser. And if that is your response to the fact that Jame Ruse kids are social retarts, sorry but you’ve lost this argu­ment.
    Moral of the story: JR kids are sore losers.

  • Timothy Siu u fuck
    ur dad is clem­ent
    u are shit at table tennis

  • call me arrogant i dnt give a fuck
    April 26th, 2009 at 3:31 am

    LOL wtf ur not the one whos pos­ted these exams, its Dan, so stfu and stop talk­ing as if ur the one whos done us all a favour. And im sorry but private edu­ca­tion is just dif­fen­ret from ur fucked up ruse edu­ca­tion in that we actu­ally con­cen­trate on aspects other than aca­dem­ics. wtf r u kid­ding yea hanging out with ruseturds sure sounds fun fuck id b so fkn embrassed if i were in one of ur lil ‘jr usyd med unite!’ groups. just get da fuck back to ur desk and study. Oh and I do have friends in select­ive includ­ing jrah who are cool and damn frig­gin smart as well (one got in to com­bined med) so i guess there are some exceptions.

  • Thanks for the exams. I love your chem notes.

  • Hey Mr Arrog­ant up there ^

    Just won­der­ing if you’re able to talk with less profanities…the way you talk will get you nowhere in life x)

    And just to let you know, Ruse kids don’t sit at home all day study­ing. They do know how to strike a healthy bal­ance between study, friends, part time jobs and sports.

    Watch this! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eodFU4b237s

    It’s enough to make any­one as sour as you sweet =D

  • errr yes u totally con­vince me.. and sorry its not the way i nor­mally talk but the way u fuck­ing ruseturds bitch­ing about hog­ging exam papers got me a tad annoyed^^ and yeah im a korean myself haha good to see u like snsd theyr r so sweet gee­gee­gee­gee geeeeee but back to teh point, 98% of u nerds do sit home all day study­ing, and its only the lucky 1% who man­age to have a bal­ance. The other 1% r drop­kicks who just cbf study­ing like my friend who got 70.55 :)

  • Thank you so much for the gen­er­os­ity, that helped me a lot..

  • i love you. like i really utterly love you. like bloody hell, i love you more than like food. nearly as much as the bos resources.
    thankyou so bloody much. i’m still in shock as to how much i love you.

  • Hey man!
    like the count­less oth­ers i too wanna give u a hearty thanks for over­com­ing com­pet­it­ive­ness and put­ting up your notes and stuff on this great web­site, hats off to you dude!

    & to all you ignor­ant con­form­ist sheep idi­ots out there who think all ruse kids do is study, youre the reason tabloids sell! and im not even being biased coz i dont even go to ruse, let alone a select­ive school! but i know loads of lovely ruse people and theyre all mad! soo yeh =D

    keep it real guys ;)

  • What ever happened to “shar­ing is caring”? There’s noth­ing wrong with dis­trib­ut­ing resources if it’s going to bene­fit others…I’m sure good things would come to those who are NICE!

    …it’s juven­ile and trivial how people take an act of kind­ness and use it divisively.

    And to Dan, TY very much for all your help ^^

  • you are an abso­lute saviour :)

  • you are one sexy beast

  • I don’t mean to be a spoilt sport but i don’t believe dis­trib­ut­ing james ruse papers all over the inter­net is right. I under­stand that people from other schools would like to work from them, but if they really wanted to, they should’ve just tried to enter the school as a stu­dent.
    The teach­ers would be ashamed you’re pub­li­ciz­ing papers they’ve worked hard on for ruse.

  • Thanks for the dis­tri­bu­tion of the papers; but they’re all 7 years old now and the whiney JRAHS kids think you shouldnt have dis­trib­uted them..HAHA, take them off no one cares except the JRAHS kids because they all think they’re ‘that’ much more spe­cial than every­one else — hence why theyre com­plain­ing and whin­ing, give them what they want; they’re spoilt little bitches who think the ‘prestige’ of their school is everything — here’s real­ity for you; no one else cares about JRAHS except for the kids that go there, go crawl back into your little niche and shut the fuck up.

  • study people

  • Get rid opf the swearin and be grate­ful for these papers

  • You know what, MOhammed gives great advice, but where did this name ori­gin­ate from

  • thanx..man.…..now i just have to see how i do with these papers…

    thanks alot man..

  • hay..what ass holessss.…..talk about being sad casesssssssss..just becoz one cant get into select­ive high school dosent mean u should see them any diifffff­frent the thing thats..funny is that in uni..u well see a person..that has gone to a school ranked lets say 324..who got the same mark as u..so technically..“lets not judge a per­son by which school they go tooooo”…and now its time to conclude.….…..THANKSLOT DAN..THESE PAPERS ARE LIFE SAVERS…I HOPE WHERE EVER OR WHO EVERARETHATHAVE THE BEST LIFE POSSIBLE.…THANX ALOT MAN.……

  • thankyou~~

  • Who really cares if you come from a select­ive high school or not. In the end it all just comes down to whether or not you want to do the work and in this case past papers. Does it really mat­ter what school they come from its just a resource for every­ones use?

    Too all those jrahs people, I’ve just read most of this forum and i really just can’t believe the lofty pin­nacle youve placed your­self on. What you are really doing is deny­ing other people the right to achieve in the HSC and lets be hon­est its every­ones right. I know I’m not going to get into com­bined med at USYD (wow that would be the life all that party­ing…) but why should I not try to get the highest mark I can achieve?

    So thanks dan for the past papers I really appre­ci­ate it

  • Ummmm
    do you have the 2004 James RUSE Tri­als Worked Soli­tions, im in yr 11 and doing the acc course, and im hav­ing severe dif­fi­culty get­ting my head around some q’s.

    ANy help would be much appreciated

    Thanks

  • UMMMAM LIKE NOT HAVING FUN, SOSOSOSOSOSOSOSOSOSOSOS

  • i am also hav­ing some dif­fi­culty doing this 2004 trial, if you could get some full solu­tions for the paper, it would be also much appre­ci­ated, thanks.

  • I am from par­ramar­ist, and am doing th acc course. Some papers par­tic­u­lar­ily the 2004 JR Trial for 2U maths, is a little tricky, for most of us westerners.

    Help would be much appre­ci­ated, as were try­ing to work hard and achieve.

    Regards

  • for all you ruse people hav­ing a whinge… I think most of the other schools would be happy to put up their papers but would you even do them? aren’t you guys TOO SMART to tackle any other schools papers?

  • We’re bet­ter than all of you.

  • We will all be free soon!!!!! How cool is that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?
    Peace out, Joel

  • JAMES RUSE IS OVERPOWERED.
    NEEDSNERF.

    Like…they don’t get to do 3U/4U maths or something.

  • Hi guys,
    Do you have recently James Ruse Past Exams for sub­jects like eng­lish stand­ard, eco­nomic, maths 2u and mod­ern his­tory, ancient history?

    If you have, could you please update here. I always have a look at your website.

    Many thanks

  • Thanks alot Dan, thats relli unselfish.…
    I’m sure MOSt ppl relli appre­ci­ate this, includ­ing me BIGTIME!

    TYTYTY!

  • Would it be pos­sible to scan the potato trial examination?

  • Hey thx bro

  • Hey thx bro

  • thank you so so so much! if i dont fail you are the reason why !!! thanks so much dude :D

  • Wow. I never expec­ted there to be so many past papers on here. Also didn’t expect the little room at the end of C-Block to be seen as some kind of author­ity on Maths ques­tions o.o

    It’s great that people are will­ing to take up a chal­len­ging paper. It means they’re tak­ing respons­ib­il­ity for their learning ^^

    I’ve heard some Rus­i­ans argue that “the papers were writ­ten for us… go use text­books or past HSC papers or some­thing”. I don’t think that’s the main issue– the teach­ers put in a hell of a lot of effort mak­ing the ques­tions– they don’t really expect them to be pos­ted on the net for all, right?

    I per­son­ally dis­like the “throw your all into assess­ments” approach to learn­ing. Exam­in­a­tion tech­nique is one thing that is (over?)emphasised at Ruse, so I guess that’s what makes the past papers challenging.

    I agree with some aspects of what peeps have said. Shar­ing is caring. Try­ing out dif­fer­ent styles of exam ques­tions is great. With­hold­ing papers isn’t selfish, but releas­ing papers then let­ting every­one use them isn’t. So people like “be grate­ful” (20090404), *thumbs up*

    But if there are 2008 – 9 papers fly­ing around the net, we have reason to raise an eyebrow.

    (also: 22032009: faggot. ^^)

  • These papers were writ­ten for us, and this is pir­acy. Pir­acy is evil (would you steal a car/handbag/etc?)

  • In a gd way ofc. That is how much i lov ya XD

  • i love james ruse kids are so up themselves.

    baulko is bet­ter guys.

  • i love how james ruse kids are so up themselves.

  • Dan man why are you help­ing out these stu­pid dum­basses from crap schools who deserve to fail cause they are lazy ignor­ant losers who have no real intel­li­gence whatsoever??

  • Dan man sun­yata why are you help­ing out these stu­pid dum­basses from crap schools who deserve to fail cause they are lazy ignor­ant losers who have no real intel­li­gence whatsoever??

  • ruse guy if you are soo smart you shouldn’t feel threatened by us “dumbasses”

  • Just chill every­one, but I really think that the School be Noti­fied if you are using any of their resources.

    *Also…install some spam filters

  • Wow. Some really unin­tel­li­gent peeps out here.
    “We can’t keep up with the Ruse stand­ard so we’ll call them gay for giv­ing us their extremely dif­fi­cult papers…”

    Good grief, prac­tising papers that come from Ruse to boost both your con­fid­ence and skill is an ASSET. The HSC is same for every­one, so if you can get even 60% on a Ruse paper, that’ll help you a lot when it comes to the actual HSC. I go to a local com­pre­hens­ive and found this immensely use­ful to help boost my marks and really get up there in the top per­cent­ile. So thank you very much. Those of you who can’t recog­nize help; GET OUT.

  • I feel grate­ful that you pub­lished these papers. They are great resources and I for one am glad that they are avail­able. I wanted to say thankyou for your effort (:
    You are truly an admir­able person!

  • thanks, dan!

    appre­ci­ate the effort :)

  • THANKS MATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    i would agree that SOME rus­i­ans are ter­ribly arrog­ant, and the fact that the js papers are on the net could be con­sidered ‘free know­ledge for all’
    in the end, it’s up to whether you used the resources well at all.. some people could have all the resources in the world and still only get a band 4

    james ruse is the best and bright­est and without a doubt we are gonna cane EVERYONE in the state guar­an­teed ! WE are gonna top both ext 1 & 2 maths this year + chem for sure so all you losers out there should just give up cause you aint gonna a beat us, no way in the world even if you did all the papers on this site ! Do yourselves a favour and just give up you’ll feel bet­ter about your­self that way any­way btw no need to thank me for this won­der­ful advice but it’s just in case you dum­basses have not figured this out yet !

  • I sug­gest you all go and study.

  • I con­cur.

  • har­oum for u if u fail al i have do do is times u by by B and ur ded BEEES LAWW!!!

  • Wow, you guys are arrog­ant. Haven’t you ever been taught social inter­ac­tion. Oh, that’s right. Tutors don’t offer that.

    I fully sup­port you in your admir­able aim to exem­plify class mobil­ity, but can you please keep the arrog­ance to a min­imum. It’s not like you are going to insti­tute great social change or bene­fit the world in any way; that’s not how tutor­ing works. It doesn’t teach ori­gin­al­ity, it teaches you to be bet­ter at one of the most routine, arbit­rary test­ing sys­tems on Earth.

    So when you start to feel all pom­pous about your ‘amaz­ing’ scal­ing that you get from your cohort, remem­ber that I — much like many oth­ers — not only don’t go to your school but don’t even go to tutor­ing and will be — if not beat­ing — get­ting within 1 or 2 ATAR points of you. Lol.

    P.S Thanks for the papers, the first two or three ques­tions of your Exten­sion one maths papers are usu­ally ori­ginal which is a nice break from the usu­ally banal ones sup­plied by other schools.

  • okay, before read­ing some of these posts, i thought i would have wanted to have gone to ruse.. but now i hon­estly think they’re all whack­jobs.. and they give off a bad vibe
    and i also wanted to com­plain about you miss­ing agri­cul­ture out :)
    your eco­nom­ics essays are really easy to under­stand! thanks!

  • Like the per­son who pos­ted above, I thought Rus­i­ans were a pretty good lot till I read the ridicu­lous amount of selfish, big­oted remarks above.

    (And I still think that most of them are awesome.)

    It’s not about ‘Let’s steal JR papers so we can learn the secrets of their appar­ent bril­liance’ — it’s about try­ing a vari­ety of tests from dif­fer­ent schools so as to be more pre­pared for the HSC. If people are actu­ally going out of their way to find past papers and do them, then they’re obvi­ously inter­ested in gain­ing a good mark in whatever sub­ject they do/getting a good ATAR, and are will­ing to put in the effort; so claim­ing that these papers should be taken down to stop oth­ers from bene­fit­ing is more than a little imma­ture. By all means, strive to do the best you can — but not by try­ing to cause oth­ers to do worse. That’s quite hon­estly not what I’d have expec­ted of stu­dents who are going to be the future lead­ers of Australia.

    (Oh, and I go to North Sydney Girls, where we’re encour­aged to share our resources with people. If you’re being taught oth­er­wise at JR, then it makes me all the more proud of my school.)

    People, calm down… we for­get that Ruse is still a school full of people who are totally dif­fer­ent to each other… they’re not all robots… so some are massive dick­heads who’s head are so far up their asses they’ve not seen the light of day for years, whereas oth­ers (*ahem*… Dan) see their advant­ages as things to share with oth­ers… try not to clas­sify all Rus­i­ans as ‘geeks’ or ‘fag­gots’ just cause some think they stand head and shoulders above us so called ‘plebs’… to those who are gen­er­ous, thanks a bunch, to those who reckon their top shit who need not share… try play­ing a sport… then we’ll see who’s on top… and no, gam­ing on a 360 or PS3 doesn’t count…

  • @ Again...not a Rusian
    October 9th, 2010 at 9:59 pm

    Why do we need to share any­thing with dum­basses like you who dont deserve shit. It’s time to get over the FACT that you are all stu­pid, ignor­ant losers and accept Rus­i­ans as your moral and intel­lec­tual super­i­ors. Any­way you are all 100% screwed for the HSC so here’s some advice don’t even bother study­ing cause it’s way too late, only idi­ots, fools and abso­lute dum­basses leave it to this late, look if your not gonna bother try­ing in the first place then just get out!you should be happy with the mys­tery atar they hand out to any total loser who man­ages to pull and ATAR of under 36! btw many of us at Ruse excel at sports such as bball, soc­cer and rugby so we abso­lutely destory you in aca­dem­ics as well as in sports. There there, there is no need to cry, don’t be depressed just be happy in know­ing we will ALWAYS be bet­ter than you =)

  • so they ‘excel’ at sports and academics.…obviously not at mak­ing friends…

  • yeah, i agree the pom­pous ruse kids writ­ing shit are dick­heads, but dont hate on the rest of us select­ive kids

  • thank you :) any­one know where i can find past eng­lish papers? bored of stud­ies crashed? (i think)

  • I com­pletely sup­port and respect your stance on this case. (and I’m from North Sydney Boys, so YEA. NORTH SYDNEY PRIDE.) Either way, it should be poin­ted out that major­ity of these over­blown com­ments by sup­posed ‘Rus­i­ans’ are merely writ­ten by trolls.
    tro­lo­lol.
    END.
    Thanks to Kewpid again!
    I’ll def­in­itely be post­ing ALL my resources through some media, as well (inclus­ive of vari­ous ruse papers)

  • @ [@Again... not a Russian]
    October 18th, 2010 at 9:35 pm

    @ [@Again… not a Rus­sian], There are plenty of people who excel at life and yet did not go to ruse. Suc­cess isn’t reserved for just you guys, in fact who really cares about the HSC after it’s over? no one, because it’s all about get­ting the ATAR we need to get into our uni course. Just to inform you, there are very intel­li­gent people from other schools who also do very well in the HSC. Life isn’t about assert­ing your surperi­or­ity over other people, so don’t think that non-ruse kids are arrog­ant cuz really they pity you, if you think they’re arrog­ant, cause it just shows how snobby you are and how your arrog­ance can only inhibit rela­tion­ships in your lives, which is much more import­ant than pure intellect.

  • @[@Again… not a Rus­sian], it was incon­ceiv­able to me until I read your com­ment that someone could be so unre­servedly, unashamedly, obnox­iously and unbe­liev­ably con­ceitedly arrog­ant. I pity you, I really do. Your des­potic asser­tion of superi­or­ity based on aca­demic and sport­ing achieve­ments is strik­ingly sim­ilar to the uneducated and under­achiev­ing teen­ager in some dodgy sub­urb who is quick to lose his tem­per and swears at oth­ers cal­lously because he knows no bet­ter.
    The fact that you will pass your exams in Eng­lish well (I’m assum­ing) while demon­strat­ing a com­pletely insens­it­iv­ity to oth­ers’ dig­nity and worth demon­strates that your edu­ca­tion is flawed and you merely learn a for­mula for the ‘exam game’ that will get you good marks; but it teaches you noth­ing. Such a crude and uncar­ing mind as yours appears to be should, by all rights, sur­face and revile the exam­iners. You learn noth­ing of the beauty, grace or eleg­ance of ideas or people.
    You are an ignor­ant: a repuls­ive bigotry per­tain­ing to your superi­or­ity makes a ran­cid air fol­low your pres­ence. Your con­cep­tion of suc­cess and of life is flawed. I know you will not listen to me, and as you read this you form vague, insup­port­able rebut­tals to rebuke me with, but reason is on my side — reason and under­stand­ing, which, to the acute observer, pierces through your shroud of self– impel­ling egotism.

    and @@@[@Again… not a Rus­sian]: It would seem that the poster above you has a far super­ior intel­lect than you might believe; des­pite ‘using a thesaurus’ they have still man­aged to form a coher­ent response instead of the sloppy mess that many indi­vidu­als haphaz­ardly stitch together.

    The exten­sion one papers are so much harder and more like the HSC than the tri­als our school sets, thanks for upload­ing and I wish I had’ve found them sooner.

    @Anonymous (again… not a rus­sian) very good point (although you spent way too much time mak­ing it). Just becasue you go well in the HSC doesn’t qual­ify you as some great aca­demic — it is a game of pure memory and rote learn­ing, intel­li­gence and actu­ally learn­ing things is an extremely insig­ni­fic­ant part.

  • man i feel sorry for all those people who got owed by the 4 unit exam 112/120 ! thank­fully 3 unit was much easier 83/84

  • Dan, you’re an abso­lute lifesaver. These chem & eco notes + papers might scrape me a semi decent mark. If not then oh well, should’ve paid atten­tion through­out the year, but thanks a bunch mate, really appre­ci­ate it.

    Also, read­ing all these little argu­ments pos­ted pre­vi­ously, ser­i­ously made my day.

  • I hon­estly think that it is incred­ibly awe­some of you to post up all these great resources. How­ever, please be care­ful — this stuff does tech­nic­ally belong to the Depart­ment of Edu­ca­tion, so maybe you shouldn’t be post­ing it online. But thanks for show­ing that edu­ca­tion isn’t (all) about marks & beat­ing oth­ers :)

  • Hey :)
    Thanks to dan chang, great guy, gradu­ated years ago.
    Bril­liant notes, bloody legendary :)
    Dis­ap­point­ing to see the com­ments sec­tion turned into one big bat­tle­field con­cern­ing resources and the veil of James Ruse.
    @ Non-Rusians, Ruse is just another school, with a sea of kids. You do get the fag­m­unches that troll around on sites like these; please keep in mind that these are the minor­ity. Many Ruse kids with a life will be as socially accept­able as any other kid from CTHS, Baulko, Girra etc. all schools whom I respect.
    I thank the people try­ing to keep this place sane.
    @ Rus­i­ans, by being a com­plete prick, it is not help­ing our school image. Shar­ing some test papers, although risky with the Dep.Ed, is not giv­ing away the cream. It depends on how you use it that makes the dif­fer­ence. If we are truly the best school, then prove it. Show us by mak­ing your­self a pro, and not by put­ting depriving oth­ers; work for it. Daniel Chang cer­tainly has.
    As for oth­ers, please do not pre­tend you’re a ruse stu­dent if you’re not — it won’t fill the lack­ing space in your pants.
    Cheers, L.

  • E-fights YEAH 1.5m Year 7 kids can hide behind the veil of the inter­net and pre­tend they’re ebosses. :P

    Any chance of get­ting any new papers up?

  • The prob­lem with the papers is basic­ally that our school is really tight on us about resources and stuff so we’ve grown up with this bad view on post­ing up past papers. Trust me it isn’t because we don’t want every­body else to do well. Ruse isn’t like that.
    Haha also most of the arrog­ant com­ments are DEFINITELY trolls. Some of the nicest ppl I’ve met are in Ruse, and it’s not fair for every­one to assume we’re all stuck-up retards. We aren’t study freaks haha we bludge and party like any other teen­agers with social lives.
    So don’t ste­reo­type us as ‘nerds that study all day’ just because we do well in hsc. We still have a life, and we want every­body to do well :)
    That is all.

    We aren’t study freaks haha we bludge and party like any other teen­agers with social lives.“
    why do i find this hard 2 believe

    um…for the record, if you don’t go to ruse then you are in no pos­i­tion to judge what we do with our lives. not every­one is the same; we share higher intel­lect but that doesn’t mean we are all the same in other aspects of per­son­al­ity and social ability.

    the only issue that i ever saw with this whole thing was that the notes were put up without permission…im not say­ing any­thing more than that, its just that in all respect for the people who work hard in our school to allow us to pro­duce the res­ults we pride ourselves in, it isn’t fair to put all this stuff up.

    that said, i totally agree that ruse notes should be made pub­lic, im sure a lot of people can make use of them.

    please dont assume that ruse people are all the same; this whole neg­at­ive image we have is because people judge our school by appear­ances and silly people who have too much self-pride…the real­ity is we are all hsc stu­dents and all have to go through the same exams so the last thing we need is to go at each oth­ers throats about this…

    if you guys looked past the news and the media; stopped mak­ing a fuss about our rank­ing and our marks and saw us as just another school then maybe there wouldnt be so much arrog­ance and hate

    please dont cre­ate hype around ruse or its stat­ist­ics
    the stu­dents make a school, not their marks.

  • Haven’t taught at JR but have at other schools includ­ing select­ive & com­pre­hens­ive. Good stu­dents & bad stu­dents at both types. Good teach­ers & bad teach­ers at both… and I KNOW this applies to JR. JR get the top aca­demic stu­dents so as long as the school doesn’t stuff it up they have to get the top HSC res­ults. Doesn’t mean the school itself is inher­ently super­ior.
    In an ideal world resources would be shared since edu­ca­tion is a uni­ver­sally good thing… but com­pet­i­tion and lazi­ness from oth­ers puts pres­sure on resource-hoarding.
    For JR stu­dents upset about resource shar­ing:
    1. Don’t feel so insec­ure. You still have the advant­age over oth­ers with an aca­dem­ic­ally super­ior cohort and prob­ably a more academically-capable brain (that’s how you got there).
    2. Don’t be so attached to your school. When you leave it won’t be pro­tect­ing you, hold­ing your hand… and you’ll meet, and some­times be out­classed by, those from else­where who have a well-rounded edu­ca­tion, social con­science and lower ATAR.

  • any­one know a web­site where I can find SHS and North Sydney Boys High school pre­lim­in­ary HSC test papers?

  • have any one of you have any pre­lim­in­ary 3 unit maths papers and other sub­ject pre­lim­in­ary papers. if u do please post it. thanks

  • oh lol.
    well, the major­ity of you diss­ing rus­i­ans obvi­ously have no idea what you’re talk­ing about.
    We do have amaz­ing social lives, for the record.
    And des­pite that, we still man­age to top the HSC each year… Freaky right ;)
    Oh and… stick to your own school’s past papers (;

  • There’s too much hate on this website.

  • Guys, please stop fight­ing. I am new to Ruse and shared many of the views that people are express­ing on this thread. How­ever, upon entrance, I was sur­prised to find that Ruse stu­dents do have a social life, have LOTS of fun (some of the teach­ers are actu­ally hil­ari­ous) and are amaz­ing people.

    The per­son who is act­ing as a Ruse stu­dent and pro­vok­ing every­body by act­ing like an idiot is obvi­ously not from Ruse, I can tell you from exper­i­ence that no such per­son would last at Ruse for 2 days.

    Why can’t we stop fight­ing and appre­ci­ate what Dan has done in upload­ing Ruse past papers? Shar­ing is caring, and at the end of the day, every­body bene­fits when people get smarter!

  • dear every­one who is put­ting ruse down,
    ruse is an excel­lent school who does not breed nerds or any­thing of the sort. The people are not arrog­ant and very friendly and as a mat­ter of fact i go to ruse cur­rently and i have a hell of a life. Dan im not sure you have the author­ity to post these up but i think that every­one SHOULD be allowed to view these papers; it will help the rest of you learn. But also get­ting pissed at other ruse stu­dents just because they are smarter than you is not very nice. leave them alone. The only prob­lem i have with this is that the school could get angry that dan has not asked their per­mis­sion to put this up.

  • are these all for HSW?

  • Are these papers for premilim­in­ary or the actal HSC?

  • i loled at the comments

  • Fuck you all.

  • ahh. jealousy ;(

    Looks like some people are jeal­ous of Ruse ;)!

  • hurl­stone is a hor­rid school– dum­bos go there
    NSGHS and SGHS are filled with slutty girls
    NSGHS and SBHS have guys who are up them­selves
    Baulko is a RUSE wannabe

  • Hey, do you have the solu­tions for all the bio­logy exams? It would be great if you could put them up…
    Thanks (:

  • people who are hat­ing, if you’re using the resources, you don’t have the right to bitch about the school.

  • So much trolling...or apathy. Very hard to tell.
    July 19th, 2011 at 11:43 pm

    Thank you very much Dan for these papers :)
    Yeah, i’m not a ruse per­son. In fact, until i found this site, i hadn’t even heard of the damn place.
    And i find it quite amus­ing that the amount of people who are all like ‘shouldn’t share papers because james ruse is gonna kick ass in the hsc cause we’re bet­ter and you’re dum­basses.’ are either trolls (and i must say, are doing a pretty good job of trolling people here), or ARE in fact a bunch of apathetic, soul­less creatures (might i add, with a severe inferi­or­ity com­plex) who should be locked in a dark room, doing some menial job for the rest of their (already miser­able excuses of) lives.
    Once again, thank you Dan.
    And that will be all.

    Besides, ATAR is kinda redund­ant once you’re at uni. Nobody (except arrog­ant dick­heads) goes around at uni say­ing ‘look at me, i’m a clever c**t who got 99.95 and i’m doing a degree at . That means i’m bet­ter than you. What did you get? Oh, only 83.75. Shame. Because i got 99.95, and i’m amaz­ingly bril­liant herp derp.‘
    That stuff just gets you beaten up and abused, often to the point where you seclude your­self com­pletely, or end up leav­ing, or drop­ping out alto­gether.
    Any of you trolls or close-minded fag­got ruse kids (not the good ruse kids. Just the ones giv­ing every­one else crap about their (sup­posed) inferi­or­ity) got a prob­lem? Come at me bro!!

    Just real­ised, my first com­ment left out some­thing.
    It should say:
    Besides, ATAR is kinda redund­ant once you’re at uni. Nobody (except arrog­ant dick­heads) goes around at uni say­ing ‘look at me, i’m a clever c**t who got 99.95 and i’m doing a *insert dif­fi­cult and expens­ive course here* degree at *insert pres­ti­gi­ous uni­ver­sity here* .

    Bet­ter.

  • Well the stu­dents at baulko seem to have got­ten sig­ni­fic­antly dumber in the past year(s). Last year, baulko was ranked 4th (dropped 2 places)… and this year, their naplan res­ults were hor­rendous.
    And yet, the kids at baulko con­tinu­ously boast about their so called ‘intel­li­gence’ and ‘skill’, when they’re evid­ently get­ting dumber by the year.
    When will these kids learn… *sigh*

  • thanks

  • Well people would have no reason to boast if they got into their desired course, would they not?… Or unless they got into a low ATAR course (because their ATAR wasn’t as high as they would’ve liked), and in that case, people would be too ashamed to boast.
    The cut off for USYD med is 99.95… and if a stu­dent got into that course, the course name itself would be able to tell oth­ers that they’re smart.
    No-one in their right minds would boast about an ATAR. I don’t know what world you’ve been liv­ing in, but in this world, that doesn’t hap­pen.
    Psssh, the Ruse kids giv­ing every­body else craaap about their inferi­or­ity? Well ehh. It’s not like those ‘other kids’ even bothered study­ing. Then they expect the people who have worked SO HARD dur­ing the HSC to give up their HSC papers so that they can ‘attempt’ to become smarter?! Well their stu­pid­ity shows.

  • Those idi­ots out there that think Rus­i­ans don’t have social lives obvi­ously don’t have one them­selves. They haven’t taken the ini­ti­at­ive to meet a Rus­ian because they are appar­ently ‘too super­ior socially’ to be able to talk/meet a ste­reo­typed ‘nerdy low-life’.
    Well those idi­ots must be the dumbest idi­ots alive! When they’re work­ing in a base­ment full of rats, and ends up get­ting bit­ten by one (because they failed to get into a UNI course due to their snobby, ignor­ant beliefs and actions), who will be the ones to help you recover? That’s right, the smart, Ruse doc­tors…
    OH WAIT, these snobby idi­ots (not the Rus­i­ans) have no med­ical insur­ance! They’re prac­tic­ally broke!
    And FYI, Ruse kids have amaz­ing social lives. Any­one who believes the ‘nerdy, low-life’ ste­reo­type is obvi­ously a low-life.

  • i like cheese

  • I think I <3 u! heheheheeee

  • I mean.. I think I <3 ruse yaahxxooox

  • arrog­ant jr guys who think they are the best when they get owned by people like my friend who got 99.5 and he went to sefton

    ps: thanks for the resources buddy! dont turn out like greedy cor­por­ate people like them in the future

  • I’m not from Ruse, but I know for a fact that Ruse stu­dents are actu­ally nice, soci­able people. Even on this web­site alone, there are plenty of people who are hat­ing on NSW/Australia’s #1 high school– James Ruse. And why? Because many of these ignor­ant people are actu­ally jeal­ous of the smart Rus­i­ans.
    I’m sure that if these Ruse haters were actu­ally smart enough (if they’d taken the ini­ti­at­ive to actu­ally WORK HARD) to attend Ruse, they’d feel some­what happy of their achieve­ments (going to Ruse is a BIG ACHIEVEMENT!). It’s human nature to feel blessed to attend such a won­der­ful school, like Ruse. Stu­dents at Ruse are NOT ignor­ant– they are merely stu­dents who are proud of their school’s aca­demic status. If you were part of a school that well-renowned, you’d be proud to be a part of its com­munity, would you not? These stu­dents should not be hated on just because they are not ashamed of their school!
    And yet, people fail to real­ize that the Ruse ste­reo­types are false. People believe that Ruse, although a smart school, is ignor­ant– as a res­ult of their jeal­ousy. If they were a part of an awe­some school, they’d prob­ably think oth­er­wise… but they’re not!
    Maybe there are a few Ruse stu­dents that fit the ste­reo­type, but the major­ity of Rus­i­ans are nice people. You can­not form an opin­ion on school based on what one member/person does!
    That said, I truly admire Ruse’s com­pet­it­ive, con­sid­er­ate and caring atmo­sphere– it’s a school to be envied!

    Here’s an idea for every­one.
    Instead of vent­ing hatred here, think of the law of con­ser­va­tion of energy: energy can­not be cre­ated or des­troyed, it can only change form. With that said, con­vert and chan­nel that neg­at­ive energy into your HSC and study and all that, and actu­ally try and get a decent mark. That way you can get some­where in life. At the moment my HSC’s going to hell, so get the fuck off your com­puters and do some fuck­ing study.
    Appar­ently it works :)

  • my atar is 42.14

  • guys, guys, make love not war

  • thanks for the papers, hon­estly going to help
    and does any­one have any­thing on ancient his­tory or addi­tional phys­ics papers/notes?

  • I am look­ing for a smart Ruse Chick who would like to be tied up and … mmm…

  • Hey!! Hehe another ruse stu­dent here!! Actu­ally, I really want to just say thanks to Dan for put­ting the papers up to show that we aren’t all the bad ste­reo­types that every­one takes us for :) Oh! And to the above, Ruseter, do u go to Ruse?? Hmmm you just remind me of someone there, that’s all :)

  • Hey Dan,
    I would really appre­ci­ate it if you could inform me/us on how you got your hands on the past papers from other schools. I’ve gone through a fair amount of the resources you’ve pos­ted on this site and am insanely grate­ful! Only reason I’m curi­ous is that I would like to get the past papers for the sub­jects I do that haven’t been pos­ted here.
    Thanks again, you’re a cham­pion and every­one should appre­ci­ate what you’ve done.

  • Ruse is a school full of bend­ers who are incred­ibly socially awk­ward. You see them at the bus talk­ing non-stop about DotA and ‘o wow, I haven’t star­ted study­ing yet, I really should.’ The Ruse com­munity is so secluded in their little bubble, a lot of them end up mar­ry­ing each other (Ruse kids will never believe this.) Ruse kids, get off your high horse and out of your chinese men­tal­ity and accept sharing.

  • AHHAAHA I’m laugh­ing so hard after read­ing this whole entire neg­at­ive com­ments about ruse. But yeh, thanks again dan for the awe­some resource even though tomor­row is the first hsc exam i’m sit­ting :D :D

  • its funny that no one gets that dan is only shar­ing these past papers because he’s already gradu­ated so obvi­ously it doesn’t affect him at all (so no guys, he’s not actu­ally that nice and caring and kind.)
    also, if every­one thinks that papers should be shared even though they are actu­ally the legal prop­erty of the school, then why isn’t there some sort of link from the BOS then huhhh?! and if they were to be free for any­one to just take and use, then why do schools have to pay for cssa papers? .. how is that fair someone please explain.

  • Hey Kewpid, do you have any more eco­nom­ics exams?

  • Hey Kewpid, do you have any more eco­nom­ics papers?

  • Hi Deniel,

    Many thanks for the inform­a­tion. They are very helpful.

  • WEST SYDNEY WILL RISE

    The A-League will one day exper­i­ence a west sydney club dom­in­ated by asians

  • There will always people who look down and degrade oth­ers, how­ever truly intel­li­gent people would be open-minded. With that said, intel­lect doesn’t rep­res­ent ‘aca­demic achievement’.

    But that doesn’t give you any right to bash on Ruse.

    1. You’re using their papers.
    2. You haven’t actu­ally been there. You’re just humi­li­at­ing your­self.
    3. Just because Ruse ‘sucks’ doesn’t exactly make you any better.

    To all haters, I ser­i­ously hope you get some­thing worth­while out of this, after all we’re all people. It’s kind of the same as racism, and it’s pretty disgusting.

  • Thankyou sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much!!

  • Wow at the com­ments. some of the nicest people I’ve ever known in my life go to Ruse, all of you haters obvi­ously don’t know what the hell you’re talk­ing about…

    James Ruse doesn’t “breed nerds”, what you’re sug­gest­ing is almost as bad as racism/sexism. If you want to see what Ruse is like I recom­mend you pay them a visit, because it’s a great place.

    and thanks for the papers. :)

  • Firstly thanks for the papers!

    And you haters/trolls/ruse-pretenders have no right to be doing this. For one, you’re using there papers, and secondly you’ve never taken the time to meet one of the Ruse kids. The Rus­i­ans I know are one of the coolest bunch of people I’ve ever met.

    So you should take the ini­ti­at­ive and meet a Rus­ian one day. You won’t regret it.
