    Then explain why only 3-4% of students in English Standard only get Band 5 or 6.

    Re: Full marks

    Isn't it obvious? The majority of English Standard students suck at English...duh!

    Paper 1 is usually where most English Standard students fall because they're up against the stronger candidature of the English Advanced students. Everything's on the same scale for Paper 1, so this paper usually drags most the English Standard students down. That's why only a small few get the top 2 bands because they do comparatively well against the English Advanced students in Paper 1 whereas the rest don't.

    Paper 2 is specifically the English Standard modules and usually most cope with them rather well because they are pretty easy. Hence when people say English Standard is easy, it's usually because the Modules are easy...

    Also, unlike in the past, nowadays I think there have been more full marks scored in just about every elective.

    adzactly, i have no idea how any of the teachers and other students in higher classes can come up with such good answers to questions i wouldnt even know how to start.

    it just doesnt mesh with my brain, even reading the markers comments confused me

    Re: Full marks

    What? I'm hearing that only 1% of the state get Band 6 in Standard English and then one person got a Band 6. So how many people is it that got Band 6?

    Never mind that - I'll get a Band 6

    Because English Standard contains a lot of dipshits and some are even illiterate.
    Too many people memorise essays and don't even understand the text or properly analyse their texts.
    If your marks are still below 14/20 for your extended responses by the HSC trials and that trend continues you may say goodbye to Band 5 or 6.

    32334 took the course.

    Does it look like only 1 person got Band 6?

    EDIT: LOL why does the link or page title say '2007 HSC' when it says '2008' on the page?

    No, he would be referring to the actual number of people obtaining Band 6's.

    There certainly wouldn't be 74% of the 2008 cohort achieving Band 6's.

In conjunction, with writing in a sustained and logical manner, and of course a strong argument and actually answering the question. <=== listen dat ^^

    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
    yer this is true the standard just gets higher and higher...apparently this year you guys need to get all the way to m in the alphabet and on the note of getting band fives, if your doing standard english ,even if you do by some miracle get an amazing band five mark, you are close to illiterate and therefore the furthest you will possibly go is TAFE (dw someone has )to build my mansion)

    dnt know if this info will be any help really as i have no raw marks with it, but.
    my brother did his hsc in 2008, for standard english he said this is around what he did
    paper one
    section 1 - wrote very few sentences
    section 2 - wrote a 2 page story
    section 3 - wrote a small paragraph

    paper two
    section 1 - small paragraph
    section 2 - small paragraph
    section 3 - small paragraph

    all through the year he got many 0's 1's and 2's for his assessments, came second last at a school ranked 453, and that got him an aligned mark of 60

    any who is terible at emglish, u should atleast get over this... doesnt seem hard
