Module A: Did 4.5 pages for it in the last half an hour... Still answered it alright I guess.
Module B: 5.5 pages for it. Probably my strongest essay. I did it first.
Module C: 6 pages. Quite strong also.

Probably got
Mod A: 17
Mod B: 19
Mod C: 18

Not sure how different the HSC markers mark compared to my school though :/
In trials I got 18, 20, 18.
Defs state ranking

yeah same ! i think my school is pretty lenient tbh so
i dont actually know if my essays were as strong as i thought :/
i hope they are lenient
I asked the head of english at my school and she said for trials that they marked to HSC standards or maybe a little bit harder to differentiate the cohort.
Not sure though. Hopeful for B6!

To come like 1,2,3... etc in state- does that require u to be highly ranked at school? Like in general for every sub?

Did anyone write 6+ pages per section ? If so ... HOW ? .... Did you have generics ? lmao

I write 4.5 - 5 pages each section :L and they were horrible structure. I had a 2 line conclusion ;~;

I was ranked first in my standard class. That does that mean that my mark out of 105 will become both my internal mark and my external mark? What will my HSC mark be then??

(i am assuming that I got the highest mark out of all my class mates)

If you come first externally, yes.

All the questions were pretty alright.
Mod A: 16-17/20
Mod B: 8-10/20 (only did half my essay :/)
Mod C: 12-14/20

Add that up with paper 1, 49-53/100 ---> band 3. Fml.
