Re: General Thoughts: English Paper 1 (AOS)

I wrote a little bit more than 3 pages (1 booklet) for each section, averaging >16 words per line. No huge spaces or giant circle-writing for me. The size of my writing has consistently resulted in half-arsed teachers marking me low-B because "You only wrote X pages, you need to write more"... I've contested a mark at least once per subject this year, every single one overturned when it's proven I wrote a lot more than most other students. :p
