    Re: English Paper 1 - Thoughts

    The essay was fine because it was basically my trial question and worked well with what I had planned. The creative was a bit of a challenge but I managed to use my planned one with a few minor changes. However, the short-answer section completely messed me up. It's really annoying because in the trial I got full marks and am usually very good at it. However, I struggled to work with the 3 texts provided and messed up a lot of my answers. I wrote a lot for them but they weren't good at all. I don't think I can possibly get more than 10/15. I'm about to study very hard for Paper 2 tomorrow to make up for it.

    looking at about 13+11+14, Section 1 wasn't too hard but I did not use the image provided (forgot lol) and hope it doesn't drag me down and sprinkled bs for the 6 marker too. I've always been bad at creative and the essay question worked /very/ well with my preplanned essay. Overall 4.5, 6.5, 7 pages for the respective sections

    For a band 6 in English what would you need raw for that exam? I have no clue how I went but I'm glad I got my essay done first and finished creative and Short answers with 5 minutes to go.

    Yeah, I didn't mention the soccer goal in the 4-marker because it asked for language specifically, but I talked about it in the 6-marker. I honestly think they put it there to trip people up with the 'language' thing.

    combined with paper 2, around 80 percent, if were lucky, and the exam seemed to be harder than previous years, then high 70s (78-79), thatd get u around a 90 examination mark

    Re: English Paper 1 - Thoughts

    I'm a bit confused by how the English papers are marked.
    I know they are out of 45 and 60 marks each (is that what raw marks mean?)... how is that changed to a mark of 100?

    Re: English Paper 1 - Thoughts

    Thank you. I got 75% in my trial exam for English. Do you think HSC markers mark harder than independent teachers for Trials?

    Paper 1 gets scaled down to 40

    So basically its (Your mark)/45 x 40, and then added onto paper 2's 60

    HSC markers, mark easier than independent

    HSC markers are actually on your side.


    Previous cohort in our school, the highest mark for bio was 65 percent

    Cue the HSC we had 10 band 6s

    Yeah well I used it. I guess it depends on how you were using it, like, what meaning you said it conveyed.
    I talked about how it was used to create a sense of frantic, childish playfulness which resonates with the opening line of "eight years old"
    It's a two marker anyway so you'd probably get away with anything unless you wrote something completely nonsensical.

    Should be since it was a very obvious technique

    Also they get your mark 105 then scale it to 100 then scale each text then you have your weighted mark

    I used 2 techniques for the first text. Enjambment to show the excitedness of the narrator and sensory imagery of the "taste of the mango and squeeze of the cheek" for the delight of experiencing it for the first time
