    true true... the scaling for advanced english is only a little better than standard. It's just the candidates for advanced are.. well, more advanced so they get a higher mark
    i tried doing advanced before and i felt really stupid cuz i was well under average.
    In my standard class...guess what~ top of the grade!...well, almost anyway

    I thought the scaling for both were the same. Hasn't this been pointed out before?

    I'm sure if schools like James Ruse and Sydney boys/girls did standard english, then we would have more band 6's

    Re: Full marks

    our years average is the lowest it's ever been in English. They thought maybe the teachers were marking too hard, or we all just suck :P

    Re: Full marks

    Yeah. But I think they are trying to overcome it. Because we cannot write our names in the exam, we write student numbers. So they have to mark fairly... But for section three they would know they are marking a standard paper, because standard was the only one doing physical journeys. I can just see them going
    "Oh another physical journey paper.. Oh look at the time.. I'll just give this paper a 6/10."
    They might aswell give everyone an estimate!

    You must be able to memorise your techniques and express yourself in a sustained and confident manner like me to achieve a rank of 8/95 in Standard English.

    And if the English Standard students of James Ruse (if any) study Phsyical Journeys as their Area of Study, that's one group I can blame after my HSC for a lower result than I expect.

    You're in luck, no one in James Ruse does English Standard because it isn't offered. St George Girls (or Sydney Grammar depending on the year) is the highest ranked school to offer English Standard.

    hey, i'm in top 5.... and plus, i write prepared essays... i get them marked, refined over and over again until they are succinct, and gets me good marks (eg trials).... plus i have a rather alright cramming memory so i can memorise it word for word the morning b4, and forget it in a months time...

    so dat is how i'm aiming for a band5/6! and i am sure i am confident. mayb not too confident like higher selectives, but hey, mine isn't 2 bad (harrass and performance wise), so mayb a band 5/6 mite be realistic.....

    I'm glad someone does that and has proven its worthy success.

    On the other hand I am at a school full of people who aren't too motivated or academically superior, you might find most of your Year 11's do General Maths and Standard English. But anyway I wish to ask you to rephrase the word "crap" as in the kids harass the shit out of you or simply don't perform well.

    Anyway I'm glad I'm in English Standard where I can merrily outperform others.

    Re: Full marks

    Standards students at my school get marked differently from our Advanced students, i.e. they mark easier for Standard than Advanced students, but I'm not sure if any other school does this

    Re: Full marks

    according to marking guidlines for standard english, every year people relied on recount and narrative in their responses NOT detailed. This causes them to be in band 3 or lower!!! And according to b.o.s statistics, it states that a high number of candidates get in band 3!! but there has been an increase in getting higher bands but still band 3 is the average..

    Re: Full marks

    I don't story tell. I talk about effects and why the composer used this and that etc.

    Hopefully that will be enough to get me a band 4

    Dead thread much?

    Markers are looking for students who are able to demonstrate perceptive knowledge of the module they're are studying and how composers shape meaning of it through their prescribed text, as well as their ability to portray intertextually through their related texts. In conjunction, with writing in a sustained and logical manner, and of course a strong argument and actually answering the question. If you can do that or willing to learn how to do it, then there's no excuse of why you can't get marks ranging from 17 and up. You have a whole year to do it, so chin up.

    u will need more than dat...
    every year's standard for 'standard english' raises...
    just go and read the markers comment...

    oh yeah.. try your best...
    i managed a high band 5... just missed out on a band 6 so... band 5 is realistic to people, as long as you put in the hard work, the hours of memorising essays (IT WORKS!!!!) then u will have a chance of a band 5...

    best of luck
