    English Advanced Overall Mark

    My internal is 76 Rank 76

    This is how i went most likely - in a range of marks:

    Paper 1
    Comprehension - didnt get the darwin poem - (9-11)
    Creative - used attached file and further connected it to the question (7 pages 10 words per line) - (12-14)
    Essay - i answered it with 2 related texts really well - i think (12-14)

    Paper 2
    Transformations essay
    - focussed on death and afterlife and some on the moral order
    - 5 pages
    - Directly answered the question
    15-17

    Wuthering Heights
    Dealt with
    • Natural imagery
    • Nelly is limited because of her conventional, religious and moral sentiments, which often prevent her from a greater understanding of the emotions or motives of the characters
    • Speaking as a narrator, her language is lively, colloquial and imaginative,
    • Narrator, a character within her own narrative
    • Impact of Lockwood as a Narrator
    • Reactions of her narrators
    • Series of condensed narratives
    • Nelly’s narrative overly dramatised – e.g. recalling all actions between NHE
    • Variety of other narratives are interspersed throughout the novel
    • How does Bronte support Nelly Dean’s perspective? How does she make her a reliable narrator?
    Brought up marxist and feminist interpretations and reception then and the overall love theme etc and linked this all together

    Mark: i dont know maybe 14-16

    Telling the truth: 14-16 I didnt have time to discuss in enough depth 5 poems i mentioned each in a paragraph, but i focussed on the question

    Overall what do you think i can get as a final scaled mark

    I know this is difficult to determine, give me a range

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!FINAL MARK 81!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: English Advanced Overall Mark

    you should have no problem getting a band 5 externally. don't know if it'll be an overall band 5, depending on your internal mark.

    Externally, I think you'll get a band five. Overall, you should, but you might just be under the cut-off. I'm guessing in the vacinty of 77 to 84.

    If that is a rank, and not a trial assessment mark, then it will definitely depend on how well your school goes. Remember that the whole grade has to do well in order for a substantial proportion of your form to get into a Band 6 etc.

    If you are ranked as such, but do well in the HSC assessment, who knows youll probably get into a Band 4/5. Its very possible, but it depends on your school as well...and how you go...

    Best of Luck though!


    Hmm...Im ranked 5/96 i think? Raw assessment mark of 95. Dunno how that will translate into marks...but last year my school came 18th in the state..so i hope that is a good omen?!

    Re: English Advanced Overall Mark

    my internal rank was 1/62, i was told that means if i do badly, everyone else gets crap marks too
    does anyone know how many marks they take off for forgetting to write the DATE of publication or AUTHOR for any of my texts??! mighty silly, i was panicking. and king lear was a bit of a mess, will be lucky to scrape a band 5 for that.

    Re: English Advanced Overall Mark

    heyy could someone help me figure out what my final mark for english would be???

    For paper one i roughly scored:

    section 1: 14-15
    section 2 - 12-13
    section 3 - 14-15

    For paper two:

    Module A - 14-15 (bummed out did it last lol)
    Module B - 18-20
    Module C - 18-20

    Im roughly ranked between 2-5 out of 23
    Majority of the guys did well at my school who are ranked 1-15. What chances do i have in gettin a 90+ as my final mark ???

    they're ok, im hoping for about the same, maybe a bit better though. i think i probably got 60/60 modules, maybe a mark lost in journeys..

    what would a 105/105 align to?
    'The world is so exquisite, with so much love and moral depth, that there is no reason to deceive ourselves with pretty stories for which there's little good evidence. Far better, it seems to me, in our vulnerability, is to look Death in the eye and to be grateful every day for the brief but magnificent opportunity that life provides.'

    Paper 1 - 15, 15, 15
    Paper 2 - 20, 20 , 20

    Do you think I'll be okay? I'm very nervous coz I think I might've bombed the exam :'("
