    Belonging - 2 supp texts okay!

    Well, a friend of mine was told by his father, who is the cousin of an English teacher who works at the same school as the head HSC examiner of Agriculture; he was told by the administrative staff at the marking centre that there was an agreement between the cleaners and staff-hands that the...

    Latin Continuers!

    I can just imagine the theme song "Here he comes, the man of the hour; Gaius Verres, a scandalous vice-keeper! But that's not all, he rules a province, And sells some rent-space to a pirate leader!!" Hahaha... lame :p

    SMH article on how shit is HSC English

    Wikipedia is already a text, in Standard and/or ESL. Really, I like the idea of English in the classroom. I like the idea of being able to discuss texts, ideas within them, to look at what a composer does (I quite enjoy noticing filmic techniques), to see what relevance the ideas within may...

    Belonging - 2 supp texts okay!

    Well said. People who were adequately prepared would have written a good essay nonetheless. Those good students who wrote one related text would have been prepared to do so, and would have done well; those good students who still wrote two would still have quality in their answers. I think this...

    Latin Continuers!

    One booklet each?!?! A booklet being 4 pages? I wrote like, 2 for Cicero 8 marker and 1.5 for Virgil 7 marker, roughly.

    Latin Continuers!

    I don't think agent or predicative made sense at all. It was between the other two; I put possessive because there was the form of "esse", but then again that was more likely to have gone with the facta. Confusing, but at the same time, "facta" doesn't usually take a dative, so it would be...

    Hi, Your signature says you did Greek and Extension Greek last year, getting 98 and 50 respectively. Forgive me for being sceptical, but the top 5 in both courses last year had nobody from Redfield, plus I know that the guy who came 5th got a mark of 96. If you got 98, then it's a bit...

    Latin Continuers!

    Yeh, amens means that (silly of me; a-mens, not-mind...), but fere can also mean almost, usually, around etc. I translated it a bit differently; "he was usually in the kingly retinue for a period of two years" I looked over it like that too! The Virgil seen, that is. Really thankful for that :)...

    Latin Continuers!

    I found it pretty good too. No real complaints; only a memory lapse in the prepared (for which I ought to be shot). I wasn't sure what fere was in all honesty, nor amens, but I did at first mistake it for amans. I then thought to myself, (hang on; it's not ambulens... ergo, it's not amens). I...

    Classical Greek Continuers!!!

    Oh k, fair enough. That's interesting then... so, we have 11 doing continuers = 3 SBHS, 3 SGS, 2 Pymble, 2 Trinity and 1 other... interesting... And we have 8 doing extension; 3 SBHS, 3 SGS, 2 Pymble. Hmmm, yesss, *strokes chin* Nice to know there's so much Greek enthusiasm down in Melbourne!

    Nice to see another classics scholar! I didn't do Latin Extension though; did English Extension instead; likewise, I did Philosophy in lieu of Chemistry.

    Classical Greek Continuers!!!

    Nice to see people picking up Greek post-HSC, -may-cat-!! Methalos, are you Branden, Victor or the other guy? (I think his name might be Jonathan?) I picked both the b) essays, as did Thomas; Julian picked both a)s. We didn't really talk about it post exam, but Julian hated the Plato unseen...

    Curious about state ranks + tied rank 1

    Cheese and crackers, your school's ranks sound pretty confusing from internal -> state! How did Emmanuel go internally, do you know? Came 3rd in state, but maybe not within your school. And seriously, wazzup with Thomas Vallance doing 4 languages?!?! French, English, Latin and Greek, all with...

    Curious about state ranks + tied rank 1

    Ben was 7th internally? Wow... What was Max? He came 4th or 5th, right?

    I got 81.00, and did nothing all year.

    975% = 9.75 Makes sense, don't you agree?

    Classical Greek Continuers!!!

    I assume you're from Grammar, then. I've met them, and spoken to Brandon in particular at soccer. They're nice, and I've heard from someone else that yes, they're all really good. However, Thomas is really good too, and I've been performing fairly well myself, so we'll just have to see. Then...

    HSC '09- the most paranoid year.

    HEAR HEAR!!! "wogz rulz", nobody hear likes having a cocky f***head bragging about how he can write 12 pages for each module, about how he will beat you at HSC, about how much more awesome he is over everyone else simply because he is that person. If you are a troll, that still applies equally...
