    The course spouts on about (I'll use 2 examples, but this argument applies to them all)
    - the effects on contexts on shaping texts and their value
    - different ways of valuing texts and different truths which are elucidated by texts
    all of which are essentially discredited (or at least not widely accepted) post-structuralist arguments.
    There is no room for disagreement in the course.

    It's very difficult to answer a question and not think it's BS when you disagree with rubric itself.

    well let's assume that you've done your hsc so you actually know what you're talking about. your first argument is fallacious in that only one module (the comparative study of text and context - ie, brave new world/bladeruner etc) focuses chiefly on the effect of context on shaping texts and values.

    secondly, you talk about 'truths' in your second point then go on to say that they're essentially discredited - surely 'essential truths' of any sort must have some amount of general aceptance. similarly, your reference to post structuralism should really be referring to postmodernist dogma, the questioing of ALL 'truths' (such as the ones you mention). now given the fact postmodernism can be read as being quite averse to strict sets of rubrics (like the one used by the board of studies for english) - and also given the fact that there is a whole extension unit devoted to postmodernism, then how can you possibly argue that there's no rrom for disgreement? disagreement with set notions and paradigms is the core of what the three unit engilsh course is about!

    If this is English Adv then I agree. I was in the same position and luckily understood it in yr12. My rank rose suddenly it all seemed so easy compared with before.

    I think understanding does come into play - and understanding not just the subject, but more importantly, what you need to do for it.

    Memorising essays is definately not the way to go. However, you must have definite ideas of structure/response theory in your mind. If you think about it, there are only a finite number of questions which can be asked for any module. If you are prepared for each, you can't go wrong.

    Thus, back to the topic of tutoring (and not SRK's popularity, Aish's impending menopause and Rani's toad-like voice ).

    Talking just a random question

    I found that many ex-HSC students who achieved UAI 99.90+ didn't have tuition during their HSC year- Does that mean we could study better on our own?
    (I know it really depends on the person and his/her intellegence, but i am really got stuck on this problem. Personally, I got full scholarship in one tutoring school so I had to take every subject they offered at that school. These days i found it was kinda of a waste of time altho i did learn something from the teacher...)

    I'd personally recommend prior, even though it's a bit expensive they really help you with your maths (they also do phys and chem and a bit of eng). I only do the holiday revision course (not a regular student who has to atend twice a week) and it's pretty good because you revise the work you've already done at school with the whole class and the tutor is of a much younger age which leads to better communication

    Has anyone seen the Prior Worksheets? My friend does it, and the stuff they get her to do for Extension II Math is terrible! The questions take both of us at least an hour to actually understand!
    I think, with tutoring, it sometimes leads to "over-preparation" - that is, impossibly hard questions, which our Math teacher at school has trouble solving. It doesn't help the morale...

    I know when I (try to) do her sheets, I feel very very dumb.

    Noo Prior is great! I went there last year and it really helped me. It's really expensive but if you go in there with the aim of getting the most out of it, you will! And yes those maths extension 2 worksheets were hard..

    I worked for PRIOR for 2 years and quit about a week and a half ago. It has a lot of good features and a lot of bad features. Enter at your own peril/doom imo.
