I feel really confident, I wrote 2 booklets for Module A and C but I only wrote 1 booklet for Module B. I didn't feel as confident with Module B but still over all better than Paper 1

Found it overall pretty good. Glad they didn't specify what speeches to do.

Had plenty of time (especially compared to Paper 1 where I was still writing my conclusion with 30secs to go!).

Did anyone else's co-ordinators make the cohort write their student numbers and other details during their exams? Seems counter-intuitive and wasted a good 5 or more minutes.

Nope, our supervisors were quite lenient and even made jokes about my birthday being in the middle of the HSC while signing the blue sheet.. Although the guy got pretty angry when no-one wrote the text they were doing on the front.

Mod A: Maestro question was fairly straightforward, worked well with ORT.
Mod B: Cosi question was a bit different but nothing serious.
Mod C: Billy Elliot was quite straight forward but my ORT didn't work as well as I would of liked

First of all it was ALL essays. XD

Module A: Something about perspective of society somewhat fitted my prepared essay - 6 Pages.
Module B: Power... I struggled to link aspects of the question with my first paragraph but my second paragraph was essentially on power so... YAY - 5 pages.
Module C: -_- They actually specified ONE related text... I had two... basically I lost 200 words, so my essay was roughly 900 words, which is okay... I guess - 5 pages.

I did the advanced paper and am very happy with it.
Module A: my prepared essay purely contrasted film techniques and language techniques (I do Franken-Runner), so the Q being about textual form was fantastic!
Module B: I was freaked out about this section so the fact that it was just a basic essay question was a release. I did Hamlet and discussed confronting the conflict of religious morality and avenging, women confronting patriarchy and resolving political turmoil. Was decent.
Module C: I do history and memory (the website) and my essay worked perfectly with the human attitude and human behaviour. Thank God for only one related text!

Overral MUCH MUCH better then paper f*cking one! Now time to cram for bio :mad3::chainsaw:
