Depends what you mean by 'hard'.Im thinking of doing eext2 for next year. Ive heard that its supposed to be really hard but only one major work and thats it. Anyone with experience tell me about eext2 please? thx
ugh yes drama = deathAnyway if you want to talk 'hard = effort' major works, try doing Drama. Dare you.
Hahaha that's one way to approach it, but otherwise ext 2 can be hard for some, cakewalk for others but the one thing that'll get you through 4 unit is persistence and determination, or two things, you need to be able to compose a major work over a considerable length of time and keep going, you really need to have some sort of self-discipline to keep writing which is the most important partbut Ext 2 Hard?? Never. It's so easy. Really. You can bullshit your way through a lot of it, and you just do what you want. People say that you need heaps of drafts but really you don't, if the first one's good just keep it!
Key to EE2 imo: Do whatever you feel comfortable doing. If you're the type who has to stay organised and do regular periods of writing/research, do that. If you're an epic procrastinator, do a bit of research, bit of writing, bit of journal, and cram everything a week before the due date.
You do a viva voce, a progress report, and have to hand in a final draft before submitting the major work that your teachers mark (as of 2010).thanks. another thing i wanna clarify... is all that you do for the whole year involve writing one major work e.g story? nothing else? no exam/ assessment tasks in between?
Yes. As long as there is a link to Advanced/Extension 1 (don't make 'belonging' your link unless you want the markers to self destruct) and it's weighty enough to last you ~5000 words. Oh, and it's English-y. If you want to do something with social implications (like a friend of mine wanted to talk about mental illness) you need to link it to English (so she talked about the representation of mental illness in autobiographies or somesuch, and it turned out great).i'm certain you don't.
i'm thinking of a critical essay/study, what are the guidelines for that? can we choose whatever we like?
Ahahahaha so true. Our vivas were supposed to be 8-12 minutes ... after 50 minutes my teachers looked at the clock and went "uh, yeah, so that didn't work". Best assessment ever.The viva is a piece of cake, if you can bullshit you can get easy, good marks in your internal assessments!
dont talk ur major work will be E2 or belowReally hard? What? Who told you that?
It's as hard as you want it to be. You have to be able to manage your time well, put it at the forefront of your studies, do NOT push it to the back and have continued passion, commitment and dedication to whatever your topic area is and you'll be fine.
If you push it back more and don't regard it with the awe and care it should have, then you're dead.
