Should I change my english advanced essays before the trials?? My marks were: 18/20 Mod A, 18/20 Mod B, 14/15 Belonging, and still waiting on the mark for mod c. And my rank is 3/250 (if that makes any difference)

Thanks

Do you think it'll do you better?

I didn't have a set essay for english, so I can't say I'd know if it would make a big difference.

idk whether I will get the same mark as I did before. Esp with belonging, since it was like 4 months ago...

Imo i think its a bit late to change ur essays for ur trials, but its never too late for the actual hsc. i'd prob. spend more time memorising techniques etc. because itll be a waste of time to fix it when u can use that time for productive studying for other subjects. and you already have a pretty solid rank.

I think you should change it, as your language may have developed considerably and you may have new/unique ideas:)
It would be beneficial to do so! Aim for 19-20/20
Whenever I attain 19/20, I think to myself, why not 20/20?
So, try to edit it, so you can attain full marks

Most of my essays also attained 18-20/20. However, changing it has aided me a lot! My teacher has awarded most of them 19-20/20 (drafts)

So, YES!! :D

yeh my trials are in week 4. I just dont get how to improve from 18 to 19 or 20. No matter how much work I do on my essays, 18 is the best I can get -_-

Trials are quite close - I wouldn't risk making any drastic changes since 18/20 and 14/15 is already quite decent. Perhaps just work on overall sophistication/expression?
