Here here. Quantity in terms of booklets or pages or anything is insignificant as compared to the quality of your response - with quality coming adequate textual analyis and articulation to support your points.yummdogg said:Hahaha, easy on mate. It's good to know you have your future planned, don't get too cocky though.
Yeh, it's awesome how some people can write that much...must take a lot of practice. I managed 16pgs for my creative and 13 for the essay (writing was much tighter in the essay) and it's the most I've done this year in timed conditions.
I don't think 40+pgs is impossible...my mate sitting behind me had about 5-6 8 page booklets filled up. Good on you if you can write that much! I just think markers who let their initial impressions (i.e. number of writing booklets) influence the way they mark are ignorant. But ultimately the quality of the response should win out.
I think this is all riddiculous now, I set out saying that page numbers was largely irrelevant considering writing size and formatting. But here we are arguing over something that is both stupid and pointless.
I apologise to anyone who was offended by what I said; and I think that everyone who wrote a good* response regardless of length will be rewarded. I finish on Tuesday so I don't want any feelings of animosity to ruin this very exciting time in our lives.
Good luck to everyone in all that they have done so far; and I wish you all the best in whatever you have left.
