    Plz halp XD
    You can always think about it in terms of the actions required to realise equality?
    To be more straightforward, don't always try to synthesis the hardest of speeches if you are struggling, it is better to synthesis speeches you are confident with and answering the question well rather than aiming for difficulty.

    True, like i have sadat and keating down but i wanted to go a little more, since i feel like the whole state is going to do sadat and keating. Plus i quite like my atwood paragraphs
    I was thinking of talking about the effects of equality i.e. in sadat, equality = national identity and for atwood, equality in reality = improved representation in literature

    Thoughts?

    Not sure about what you mean in equality of national identity, but as long as you can argue it, that's fine. Just a hint from me: don't get too attached about particular paragraphs or creative passages and so forth, at the end of the day, if it is not suitable for the question, you will need to modify or cut it out-answering the question should always be your top most priority rather than being overtly attached to particular writing-sometimes they don't belong in a particular question, so don't get too emotionally attached if you want to focus on answering the question well.

    Trusting on intuition and sixth sense unfortunately is not very reliable. I remember in one law exam in uni I was so confident they were going to ask a particular thing-and they didn't ask that thing, but asked something on a topic that they already asked before a year ago. The moral of this is-don't be too fixated on your fortune telling ability of how HSC exam makers think-because if Atwood is not prescribed in the exam, but another speech, you will be derailing off the tracks and will have significant difficulties engaging with the actual question because you have been so overtly attached to Atwood as an individual speech-remember you are studying a COLLECTION of speeches for a reason-they are all each individually worthy in some way.
