The short answers are ok, extended response... LOL i remember someone said 'place' and i was like 'yah it could happen'. Prepared for that shit and lol'd in the exam.
I think you may regret saying that later... They could totally stuff us up in paper 2, which is probable since this paper was relatively easyComprehension was so time consuming - but it was good. However, one of the questions, I think I had to have one more idea, but I explained one fully. Not sure. The last question took forever, but it was good.
Creative was okay - I felt the need to swear at my hand because it was lagging behind, but nonetheless, it was alright - sense of place was through flashbacks in my story already... so I hope they'd be able to pick that up. I didn't use the stimulus though. That was stupid. Be original, B.O.S.
As for the essay, I had like 35 mins and I was writing and writing, when suddenly I was half way through my idea and had like 20 seconds for a conclusion. Quickly wrote one and left my idea. However, it took FOREVER for those supervisors to come around and sign people off and make sure everything's right so everyone basically kept writing, so i finished my idea off. Could have gone back to comprehension and perfected it to it's extreme, but I didn't since that'd be too much.
Overall, I think it was a good one. I'm just going to rely on paper 2 to really get me up there. I seriously prefer paper 2 over paper 1.
SAME worst feelingI 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.
Best I'll get is 33/45.
ME TOO... one my my themes were interpersonal relationships so i said it they experienced interpersonal relationships through their spatial attachment!!!!I can imagine a lot of people getting realllllly screwed over for creative because it was so specific! D:
BUT It was okay for me - filled out 2 booklets on each section and finished with 5 minutes to spare
Essay was a bit eh because one of my paragraphs was on interpersonal connections, so I just twisted it heaps and said that the characters were only able to experience their important connections because their mutual connections to place had influenced them to do so! :L
TOMORROW IS SCARY!!
Yes, I tend to agree. You had to take place metaphorically.i thought emily dickinson was hard to use for the extended response :/
I agree as well. The standard texts our school does would be way easier than the adv texts. What even?Seems like everyone did something that was suited to place and didn't do Dickinson/Crucible ;o I am still in rage mode right now because of the bias of the question towards some texts and the impossibility of it towards others :S I did Crucible btw so ye stuffed >> Didn't prepare anything for place so completely screwed x.x The other sections were okay though ;o
my marks are prolly something like:
12/13 for short answer 13/14 for creative 9/10 for essay (if I'm lucky x.x)
Section 3 was pretty bad for Emily Dickinson poems :S
I changed connections with mother nature to connections with the natural world LOL, hopefully 11-13/15
