    General Thoughts: English Extension 1

    I thought it went well but could have been slightly better! Subjectivity reigns in this subject so I can't definitively say how well I went - should be an e4 though! Creative went alright - I weaved in 'apology' quite nicely, I didn't just paste it in my creative haha it held some sort of...

    Extension 1 HSC 2014 Prediction

    Praying that, since 2013 MX1 was relatively more difficult than other years, 2014 MX1 will be relatively easier. They did it this year for 2U so fingers crossed!

    It'll be excessive to use the whole quotation, so break it down: - "no one knew if they would live to see the end of the day" --> hyperbole in "no one" - "digging bodies" + "falling shells" --> visceral, gory, macabre, martial imagery (any of your choosing) - Accumulation --> the...

    b6 cutoff?

    I doubt the cut off will be this high because, although you may have thought it was "too easy compared to last year" (which it was to some extent) you gotta factor in everyone in the whole state and their outlook. The situation will probably be: the cut off will follow trend and be about low...

    Question 15 c) i)

    Yeah I had that answer too and the same thinking process, whereby it said "find m" in the next part, so finding something in terms of m sounded right. It's also confirmed that both are correct, it's just whether the BOS accepts our answer - tbh since they were slightly ambiguous we should be...

    General Thoughts: Modern History

    A response (granted it was a reasonable) can never be wrong; as long you've support whatever you said with ample detail you should be set man :) But you may have misinterpreted the key terms of 'nationalism' and 'democracy' (it was, above anything, referring to Nazism defined through nationalism...

    General Thoughts: Modern History

    Just to chime, the way I answered the question was nationalism, to a large extent, did triumph over democracy in the period between 1918 and 1939 (no shit) because: 1) the intransigent/rigid mindset of most Germans were bounded by nationalistic ideals and disproved a complete acceptance of...

    Raw mark for State Rank?

    If your friend beasts it you'll both state rank provided that your external (which is assumed will be allocated to him) doesn't drag him down. There seriously no full indication on whether someone will state rank or not because there are just tooooo many factors to consider, you may have fucked...
