    Full marks

    In 2002, not a single student managed to obtain full marks in any of the following questions:

    PAPER 2 - Modules

    Section I Module A: Experience Through Language
    Question 1 Elective 2: Dialogue

    Section II Module B: Close Study of Text
    Question 2(a) Drama Katherine Thomson, Navigating
    Question 3(a) Prose Fiction Robert Cormier, We All Fall Down
    Question 4(a) Film Peter Weir, Witness
    Question 4(b) Nonfiction Gordon Matthews, An Australian Son
    Question 4(c) Multimedia Australian War Memorial Website
    Question 5(a) Poetry Debbie Westbury, Mouth to Mouth

    Section III Module C: Texts and Society
    Question 6: Elective 2: Exploration and Travel

    No.

    I just thought I'd point out which topics students had and hadn't succeeded in - all other questions saw at least one response obtain full marks. And we'll have samples of those responses for you shortly.

    The responses are now available on the main website.

    'Exemplar' responses received full marks, whilst the others were placed at the band 5/6 cut-off. Clearly, whilst it's possible to gain band 6 in Standard in individual questions, only one student has been good enough to do it across their whole paper (in 2003).

    Thanx heaps Laz........much appreciated.
    Btw....just out of curiosity, y is there so much controversy over standard english students having the ability to reach Band 6 level?
    Some people say yes u can, others say its impossible.
    Where did everyone's resources for the information come from?

    Should I even be worrying about this this close to the first exam? I think not, but I am for some unknown reason.

    I think its so I dont have 2 study.

    "People are stupid; given proper motivation, almost anyone will believe almost anything. Because people are stupid, they will believe a lie because they want it to be true, or because they are afraid it might be true. People's heads are full of knowledge, facts, and beliefs, and most of it is false, yet they think it all true. People are stupid; they can only rarely tell the difference between a lie and the truth, and yet they are confident they can, and so are all the easier to fool." - Terry Goodkind

    ...
    However, there is certainly no artificial ceiling on the band level available to Standard course students. Students of the English Standard course who can demonstrate performance to the same standard as students of the English Advanced course who achieve Band 6 will also receive a Band 6 result.

    man that blows... i still dont get THE CLUB.

    dialogue from a book is crap cause you cant get out the verbal dialogue nor stance dialogue.. there goes 3/4 of the arguements i could think of.

    also i dont know any quotes that are good
    after thirteen years and all i can think of is.. bout time

    It's not impossible. One student managed it last year.

    (After all papers are marked, the marks for each course are separated for the purposes of reporting.)
