I did really bad.
My nerves got the better of me. :(
To all those with a prepared response - FUCK YOU!
It said fucking "may" so you could've written whatever you wanted. :(
I should've made one beforehand.
Also, I knew it would be place but I didn't bother changing my quotes. :(
Horrible.
Best I'll get is 33/45. :(

How Great Was That?

I dunno if i like flunked out majorly or something, but that paper was GREAT!

I was happy that the overall theme was the same throughout the whole paper ! (i dunno if that usually happens)

Also, anyone who went to the pre-uni english mock trial where the section 1 was on how a sense of place shapes identity HAHAHAHA I was rofling (metaphorically) during the 'open your books and let's go through each page to check everything is there' omg lol omg

Re: How Great Was That?

I wasn't happy because I was in no way geared towards that theme; I think I did fairly average.

Re: How Great Was That?

Each year the belonging paper has a theme. Just like this year was belonging to place and last year was belonging to family, etc.

(sorry I posted another thread , very very sorry)

Anyways ,

I thought that it was great :)

And i had nothing prepared

I didnt know what to expect but I didnt think that they had one theme throughout the whole paper (places)

The unseen texts were so interesting and diverse and the questions were straight forward.

I was glad that there was a visual stimulus for the creative writing task , it made it a whole lot easier ..

& memorising my poems (Skrzynecki prescribed text) made picking out the quotes a whole lot easier as well ..

Maybe i totally flunked out and did everything wrong , but for now i will bask in the glory of the thought that it was easy ..

But then again i'd b happy with 33/45 Riproot :L
