Good to see Papa back :p but I think... Short Answers were harder than I expected, Essay was okay and Creative had such stupid images. I didn't like the test overall.

I spent 80 minutes on Section 1 because I lost track of time... they made me take off my watch and I was sitting in the top left corner so I couldn't see the wall clock.... Had to rush to do section 3 first then only had 10minutes to be creative... lol what a retarded exam

How'd you guys do in the English HSC paper?

I think I did pretty well. Since we only had to do 2/3 parts I completley bossed the creative writing but only tried 1 short answer question. Short answer is so pointless, creative writing is where it's at baby! 99.5 ATAR here I come!

i think the 'best 2 units of english' bit really applies only to people doing extension 1 english and extension 2 english... (correct me if i'm wrong)

that exam really wasnt that hard. last years essay was harder, but even still i didnt finish it. the short answers were quite dull, but the stimulus fit my creative perfectly. hopefully around 40/45 for that
Agree with this.
Hopefully trying to get around a 35+ for this paper 1.

I thought the concept of time was pretty good for section 3 - you could have easily discussed anything

if it was the best 2 sections they would say that and everyone would do that obviously.

Ran out of time for the essay, ended up with a pretty pathetic 4.5 paged "thing" (i pause at calling it an essay) which barely covered what it needed to. Doubt it will be an 10/15.

Went well on the other sections though. LOVED the short answers.

Apparently the man up top didn't punish me enough though, the second i left the exam in a friends car we got T-boned and the car got written-off. Filing a misadventure as we speak.

last year the question referred simply to connections to places. That is directly from one of the first dot points of the syllabus. Ours required more thinking than that!!

I think the test was really hard and as I studied peter sckrzynecki as prescribed text which had really less to do with time made it even weird!
yeah dw i go to baulkham hills and my teacher said that it was a bit against skrzynecki
because before going into detail about our poems specifically, i had to sit and spend like 10
minutes discussing how the whole anthology itself was an example of how time allows and
disallows and individual to evolve their perception of belonging


HOORAY FOR GOOD SCALING FOR SKRZYNECKI haha

wrong LOL

the two best units of english applies to EVERYONE no matter how much english u do
if you do 3 or 4 unit, then however much of that english is in your top 10 units will be counted :)
