I did 7 booklets or 20 pages but by the end my writing was huge.

I finished my story within 40minutes so I had around 80 minutes for the essay.

Three full booklets for each, so 8 or 9 pages each. Probably 1500+ words per section though.

I did 4 booklets for the essay (11 pages) and 3 booklets for the creative (9 pages)
I'm so happy with the questions, the creative stimulus fit exactly to my story and I remembered it word for word

Wrote very little, partially because I hadn't studied for this subject much (three parts due to having three other tests this week, and one part due to it probably not being counted to my 10 units).

Wrote approximately two booklets each, 6 pages for essay and 6 1/2 pages for creative.

essay - 3 full booklets
story - 4 full booklets

I knew the creative writing was going to give me grief, so I cut back on the essay words and time.

5.5 pages for the creative..... :/
and 10.5 pages for the essay

Do they take marks off for the story being too short.. even though it fits the stimulus really well?

6.5 pages for the essay and 5.5 pages for the creative. That's 3 booklets for the essay and 2 for the creative. All of the posts here makes me feel like I haven't written enough at all, even if my writing is a little smaller than everyone else's.
