i also disagree.. its about what you write not how much.. u can write 10 pages of crap doesnt mean ull do better than someone you writes 3 pages that answer the question perfectlyyoakim said:I disagree. I was talking to a past HSC English marker who told me that it is INDEED POSSIBLE to gain a band 6 response (essay/creative writing whatever it may be), with only 2.5 pages. It was from his first-hand experience and numerous responses have achieved this.
Overall I think it was a pretty easy exam.. except for Text three of Section One. That confused me! Hopefully I did alright in the rest though..Rafy said:Share your thoughts and opinions of the 2007 English AOS exam.
What aspects of the paper did you like and dislike? Did you consider it a fair test of your abilities?
Overall, how did you go and how did you find the exam as a whole?
you never find out your raw marks, so you don't even know your overall total. (unless you apply to find out and don't get rejected.)LaDanian said:when people are talking about what mark they are going to get -- do you ever find out what mark you got out of 45 for paper one or do you just get an overall english mark (paper two) included

i duno if i heard correctly, but when i asked for another booklet, i THINK the supervisor said "english freak"sayrah64 said:One of our supervisors told us all to put our pens down when we still had half an hour to go. Needless to say, the whole room freaked out.
Oh, man.williamc said:One of my mates, when asking for a new booklet, he put up his hand and goes"you know what i want" the superviser smiled and went and got one.
When i had half a page to go in one of my booklets i just held up my other hand with a booklet in it. efficiency ftw
