    how much did you write and how do you think you went?

    i wrote:
    10 pages for experience through languague-dialoge-the club-david williamson
    8 pages for close study of a text- prose fiction - we all fall down- robert cormier and
    10 pages for texts and society-into the world-steven herrick.
    i dont know how well i did though...i finished with 2 minutes to go but i didnt like the first and last questions. it was an ok exam coz there were no feature aricles or speeches or letters or anything.

    I did 10, 8, and 7/8? I can't remember. I was happy with what I wrote and keeping within my time limits so can only be confident towards the results =D

    Re: how much did you write and how do you think you went?

    haha well i was consistent, all 8 pages filled to the max. had to squash the last page a bit cos didn't want to get a new booklet for a quarter of the page.
    I hope i did well, but hey, it's english, so i'm bound not to.

    Re: how much did you write and how do you think you went?

    image - strictly ballroom - i think i wrote 10 or 11
    prose fiction - briar rose - fucking 13 pages or maybe 14 but i went past the spine i was so happy haha
    into the world - the simple gift - i think maybe 12 or osmething

    i got into the second booklet for all of them!!! im so pleased
    even if my handwriting is big, at least the markers will be able to read it hehe

    yay!
    and i didnt think the into the world question was so bad.. moving into the world is about experiences and going over new horizons after all, well thats what i argued in my essay hehe who knows if its correct

    i thought briar rose was cool! the essay was practically 'so tell us about the novel' - so broad

    and image was okay too i thought.. its in teh syllabus so we've done that sort of question before and it was similar to lasts years question (i think) about images conveying ideas about people places and ideas.

    overall the test was cool! better than area of study but i didnt prepare my aos essay very well, so i just let myself down, aos coudl ahve been better btu meh

    oh yeah i got worried because i was thinking that even if i did well in paper 2, if i stuffed up in aos then my paper two would get pulled down, cuz of the whole aligning system with advanced and etc. who can ease my pain?? haha

    but meh if you cant yay! english is over

    Re: how much did you write and how do you think you went?

    Module A - 14 pages. Hopefully 17+
    Module B - 12 pages. Hoping for a 11 at the most as my response was completely wrong
    Module C - 14/15 pages. Hopefully 17+

    My overall mark will prob end up being shit, in what was a pretty easy paper

    Re: how much did you write and how do you think you went?

    I have admit, that exam paper was very straight forward. I wanted it to be more challenging, however, i looked up once and still saw heads of confusion. geez.
    Well
    Strictly Ballroom (Image) : 10 Pages
    Owen Poetry (11)
    Raw (11) i done two related materials for this section.

    overall, pleased, as i sacrificed my weekend, by spendning like 10 hrs on saturday
    and 12 hrs on sunday, memorising essays, making notes,timing myself, practising, thank god no more essays.

    Re: how much did you write and how do you think you went?

    Yeah, I had a pre-written for The Club, and thank god it fit perfectly..
    Module A - 6 pages
    Module B - 7 pages
    Module C - 6 pages
    I'm happy with my consistency there. Anywayz, because it was so easy you think markers will mark harder?? That's my only concern, but im confident I achieved a 14 or above for each.

    Re: how much did you write and how do you think you went?

    i dunno why everyone is saying it was "good" that it was "easy".

    You realise it makes no difference to you if it was easy or not - if it was easy for you, then theres thousands of people who thought it was "easy" as well - so you're all on the same boat.

    unless you're saying its "easy" cause you're an arrogant bastard, then sure go ahead.

    but other than that, i don't think theres a need to gloat how "easy" it was for you

    MOD A: 7
    MOD B: 7
    MOD C: 8

    *note* 7-8 pages of complete and utter bullshite..this year the board of shitheads decides to throw completely irrelevant questions at us, focusing on things that i dont even think are part of the syllabus...thus leading to my answer to the next question....band 2/3

    module A: 13
    module B: 12
    module C: 7


    though my handwritting was pretty big, dont forget the fact that wen a person tries to write fast they automatically write big, its just natural, scientifically proven


    module C was load of 7 page bullshit
