i wrote:
10 pages for experience through languague-dialoge-the club-david williamson
8 pages for close study of a text- prose fiction - we all fall down- robert cormier and
10 pages for texts and society-into the world-steven herrick.
i dont know how well i did though...i finished with 2 minutes to go but i didnt like the first and last questions. it was an ok exam coz there were no feature aricles or speeches or letters or anything.

haha well i was consistent, all 8 pages filled to the max. had to squash the last page a bit cos didn't want to get a new booklet for a quarter of the page.
I hope i did well, but hey, it's english, so i'm bound not to.

image - strictly ballroom - i think i wrote 10 or 11
prose fiction - briar rose - fucking 13 pages or maybe 14 but i went past the spine i was so happy haha
into the world - the simple gift - i think maybe 12 or osmething

i got into the second booklet for all of them!!! im so pleased
even if my handwriting is big, at least the markers will be able to read it hehe

yay!
and i didnt think the into the world question was so bad.. moving into the world is about experiences and going over new horizons after all, well thats what i argued in my essay hehe who knows if its correct

i thought briar rose was cool! the essay was practically 'so tell us about the novel' - so broad

and image was okay too i thought.. its in teh syllabus so we've done that sort of question before and it was similar to lasts years question (i think) about images conveying ideas about people places and ideas.

overall the test was cool! better than area of study but i didnt prepare my aos essay very well, so i just let myself down, aos coudl ahve been better btu meh

oh yeah i got worried because i was thinking that even if i did well in paper 2, if i stuffed up in aos then my paper two would get pulled down, cuz of the whole aligning system with advanced and etc. who can ease my pain?? haha

but meh if you cant yay! english is over :D

I have admit, that exam paper was very straight forward. I wanted it to be more challenging, however, i looked up once and still saw heads of confusion. geez.
Well
Strictly Ballroom (Image) : 10 Pages
Owen Poetry (11)
Raw (11) i done two related materials for this section.

overall, pleased, as i sacrificed my weekend, by spendning like 10 hrs on saturday
and 12 hrs on sunday, memorising essays, making notes,timing myself, practising, thank god no more essays.

Yeah, I had a pre-written for The Club, and thank god it fit perfectly..
Module A - 6 pages
Module B - 7 pages
Module C - 6 pages
I'm happy with my consistency there. Anywayz, because it was so easy you think markers will mark harder?? That's my only concern, but im confident I achieved a 14 or above for each.
