    Also, to anyone who did speeches:

    I only noticed after the exam that you could've just talked about one speech. Because it didn't specify how many to do or anything.

    Lmao I feel like such a dumbass - when I first read the question I thought it meant our texts themselves had to show an appreciation of literature, so I talked about Atwood and Lessing and how they themselves show a deep appreciation for literature, band 1 here we come
    jk jk I also argued that they allowed audiences to appreciate literature, so hopefully that gets at least a band 2 :,D

    Eh, unless they specifically asked for one speech I think it would be necessary to discuss at least two.

    Re: English Advanced Paper 2 [Discussion/Thoughts]

    guys i'm not sure if i'm screwed but for module C i did people and landscapes and the question required us to EVALUATE, am i allowed to argue against the question? i did agree with the question for the first half of my essay but the second half of my essay is argueing against..i think i'm screwed lol

    also, for the metropolis question, i didn't include the image in the beginning of my essay but i included IN my essay (i think in the third paragraph)..is that ok?? is that better than not mentioning it at all? i feel really really screwed lol

    Re: English Advanced Paper 2 [Discussion/Thoughts]

    I was kind of hoping for some more specific questions that would provide a bit more guidance as to what to write about - I really worked on not being too prepared and narrow, and then was a little bit lost initially.

    Gatsby & Browning - talked about how differences in values highlights how values (gender, materialistic/deep love) change over time and hence produced conversation when viewed from different cultural viewpoints.

    Hamlet - audience develops empathy for Hamlet due to appreciation his conflict, and faces uncomfortable truth that we too are isolated in our own worlds to a certain extent, also audience face uncomfortable certainty of our own deaths. Therefore, such an audience relationship with hamlet means we grow appreciation for text.

    Crucible: Banged on about absolutist rule and how depiction of such rule prompts readers to consider their own views of all-consuming political power, and also consider the power they have in their own lives (John)

    IT'S OVER THOUGH!!!!!! I am never going to read or write again!!

    Module A: In the 5 minutes reading time, I was like "Wtf?? What kind of question is this? How would I even do this??" It wasn't until writing time did it hit me that it actually fit really well with my argument xD So yeah I'm confident with Mod A~
    Module B: Honestly a solid 10/20 would be God-sent at this point because it was just not good at all. I ran out of time so I had to split my paragraph into two so it didn't look like I just had one.
    Module C: Super easy and fit really well with my argument.

    Why? It's not a comparative study...

    Idk, that's just what my teachers told us, that we should always use two since one isn't enough and three is too many

    yeah u can do that, thats what i did, but you also have to link it to the uncomfortable truth and how that evokes empathy, as they highlight the importance of literature in doing this. Cause you havn't answered the question, uncomfortable truth would be gender inequality and global inequality, yea thats wat i talked about

    I did this too except I did it for Keating and Sadat since I prepared for them the most. I said that the speeches themselves are works of literature and how they evoke empathy within the audience and the uncomfortable truths are political tension and what not.
    Hopefully that’ll be enough

    Also Misfits, which eSport?
    I watch League and Overwatch. Misfits own an OWL franchise - Florida Mayhem.

    And the two subjects I put down at USYD was Commerce and Commerce/Law. Definitely out of the latter but the former I've got a slim chance of making it.
