I got 49/50 internal, and 49/50 external.

Does <50 rule you out of a showcase? How many people get 50s? Just curious

ok asubmarine. forget literary analysis.
just read your poetry.

amazing
:eek: thanks heaps, glad you enjoyed it.

It must have been ridiculous differentiating between the top works though.

Congratulations on your own result both for EE2 and overall.

There is a fantastic selection of major works on the BOS Showcase 2009 thread (located in Major Works subsection), including Asubmarine's major which was first in the state! (p2)

just something about ext. 2 english - it is SO subjective, as has already been pointed out.

my friend got 50/50 as an asessement mark.

but unfortunately, the external examiners didn't take a liking to their work which was pretty heavily criticising society (and had a very strong religious component) - believe it or not, he got a measly 29/50! really shattering.

they ended up with 40/50.

i got a friend, girl at my school got 50/50 for internal and external she came 6th in the state.



don't think they look at advance english marks cause she got a band 5 still good though
Really? Maybe she got better for extension or had an amazing composition 'cause my friend definitely got 50/50 final mark. This is what I found on boardofstudies:

"If two or more students receive the same HSC Mark, the average of the examination mark and the assessment mark are then used to select the top student(s). In the case of extension courses, if two or more students receive equal marks then the marks awarded for other courses in the subject area are also taken into consideration. "

Oh well, congrats to your friend! :)

I don't understand how something can be showcase-worthy, yet not 50/50-worthy?

Advice for future students: Don't criticise society. Don't play around with religion. YOU WILL FAIL.

that is interesting seeing as i would have thought english markers would have been the most liberal of all

this is exactly why society fails



lol

Advice for diametric: Don't criticise the Board of Studies. Don't pay out the markers. YOU WILL FAIL.

if you didn't notice, I kind of finished my HSC and was giving future student's advice that would do them well.

Lol, diametric, my whole piece was centred around criticising society. You just had bad luck this year, your major work was phenomenal (but I'm sure you already know that anyway :))
