What plays did you study?

LOL at the whinge fest! Don't worry mate, you probably did better than you think you did! And if not, it's not the end of the world...Although it probably does seems like it at the moment! Just curious as to what plays everyone studied???

Wow, same!
What plays do you do for Irish? We do Dancing at Lughnasa and Beauty Queen of Leenane. Aus question was good, I thought, but Irish was terrible.

I liked both questions. It was one what I studied. For Absurdist I specifically studied what Absurdist plays say about the Human Condition, so I was like "yesssss!" :)

My class studied those two plays as well. I agree, the question was terrible, but I think *somehow* I managed to put together a rather good response. Not as good as Australian, which I spent a few minutes writing down a plan of what I was going to write, but i'm going to err on the side of optimism.

Yes I didnt understand what the Australian theatre one was asking. I mean the quote was straight forward, but then the stuff about "how the characters respond" sorta threw me.

i thought the Australian one was great i actually found it hard to finish that one and go onto my next. i didnt like my next one though it was absurdist and i think i kept getting a bit off track and then coming back to it. so i hope i did alright but the absurdist was a buit throw offish u just had to take a second or so to concentrate on exactly wat the question was asking and plan optherwise u would get mighty confused

i must admit that the question on changes for australian threatre reminded me more of an english question than drama.

they probibly re used an old change question from enlish in 2004 when they did change instead of journey...

absurd was fun.

Australian theatre was solid, comprehensive but very approachable and suited my texts (7 Stages and Gary's House) wonderfully. Brecht was awesome and incredibly easy. All round fucking great exam. Good one to go out on. I only just got back from having fun. Also, got to see a film for the first time in about a year. Wolf Creek, fucking great everyone go and see it! Happy Days!

Ok, for curiosities sake, WHAT did u write for the australian Theatre question?
What did u think the question was of asking you?
I just didnt fucking get it.
I agree with whoever said it was an english style question, and that threw me...
i went off on some ridiculous tangent on how theatre is a modern survival technique, and how it is the composers journey of acceptance and coping. The question was SO badly worded....
ironically the slightly less intelligent half of my class had no problems with this question, they over simplified it and thought it was easy, where as the 4 people who usually top drama essays (including me) did not understand it in the least.

And absurd, HOW did ANYONE like the absurd one? Visual and Physical? HOW LIMITING!!! what about dialogue and an over all social comments. shit shit shitty mc shit shit.

..sigh, and i couldnt find anywhere to fit in drama quotes, i had about 50, yet the given questions would not allow for them.

I HATE WHOEVER GOT BRECHT! easiest question ever!

BOARD OF STUDIES, if you are reading this, set all questions at the same level!!!
Like in english, there are different texts, but essentially each question is the same so nobody is advantaged in any way.

Experiential learning, oh come on! Anyone who does NOT get a band 6 for that question is a fool.

I couldnt agree more about the Australian Theatre Question. I found it really difficult, and i still do not understand the questions properly. I mean the quote was understandable, but the bit below it threw me.
I wasnt sure what exactly they wanted me to include or how to structure my response in relation to the question. And yes, I had trouble understanding it because of the wording.
I found it difficult not to slip into the 'english essay' style also.
Congrats to those who are confident with it tho
