or that of the teacher who didnt go through it, and told us we only needed 2-3? or that even of the hsc markers who initially said the same thing? as a student, i did what i was told by my teachers and by the hsc markers..Ok I don't want to come across as a callous dickhead, but I'm sorry, if you're supposed to study it that way, choose not to study every poem/speech as they specified this is hardly the BoS fault and entirely that of the student.
is this guy serz?all those saying the english exam was shit (like me) are saying it because the questions both in paper one and paper two were completly different to what they had studied for and they were so specific, like speeches. Any one saying that the exam wasn't too bad/ good or whatever, thats probably because you guys got lucky and the questions were exactly what you had prepared for like in module b with hamlet, speeches etc
english exams do test our skills, but i think the whole exam is based on someones luck not their ability. if the exam fits what they studied for obv they'll do better than someone who is much smarter but the exam has no relevance to what they did. the english exam structure needs to be changed.
1. Ok this was obviously their fault, but not that of the BoS, so there's no reason to criticise the exams, there's a reason to criticise your teachers.i didnt have a prepared essay. 1. i did what i was told and taught to do by not only teachers, but hsc markers giving seminars, which was learn 2-3 of the speeches in depth.. 2. it is near impossible to learn all eight that have no link throughout them all what so ever.. having disconnected speeches doesnt really allow you to learn it wholeistically. i wasnt relying on luck.. and in the end i did adapt my information to the question, i jsut didnt have the knowledge to the question as best i could, but yes i do believe people doing speeches and poems and essays that arent a whole text had a massive disadvantage
Memorizing my essay for julius caesar was great, I moulded my essay perfectly. for module A, I had to alter it a little bit, added more context. module B was a bit fucked but I did okay in it.Blade Runner and Frankenstein question was everything i prepared for that year, so i think i may have a 17+ coming my way.
I screwed up my Orwell essay, so that might bring me down.
Julius Caesar was better than expected. Lucky i prepared for it the night and morning before. I can smell a 15+ there.
How'd everyone else go?
