It was something along the lines of how the exploration of experiences in Merchant of Venice enhances our understanding of deception, which isnt too bad TBH depending on what your main key ideas are.2020 year 12 checking in - does anyone know what the Merchant of Venice question was specifically? I'd love to see what kind of bullshit NESA pulled for the 1st run of this new syllabus.
You know how Winston feels isolated in the first part of the story when he referred to the world as "cold", this actually focalizes into his sense of loneliness.Yeah - off topic but I was pissed at how they stapled the damn question booklet. Like, WHY??? Bad design. I'd be flipping through and suddenly bam the whole side was stapled together like a magazine lol. I didn't manage to get that many pages out in my essay though which I'm annoyed about. Too busy contemplating how the hell loneliness was related to 1984. My friend got 14....
It's just that you need to link it up with the other themes that the 1984 explores. In my case, I linked it to the desire of power of how he feels isolated when he didn't feel any desire of authority.Yeah that's what I said too! I used the "Bright cold day in April" quote ahahah
the desire of power in 1984 adapts to everything, like literaryPeople who did 1984 what did ur essay talk about? currently stressing about mine, but I used loneliness as a means used by Party members (the collective), and Winston ( as an individual), to hide from the power of the party
my paragraphs were
The Party members loss of freedom, forcing them into loneliness so they remain safe
The exploitation of expressive mediums, forcing Party members to seek loneliness
Winston's failed rebellion, which forced him further into seeking the means of loneliness
im not sure if that answered the question and im really stressing.
After paper 1: DepressionLol same, I didn't think Common Mod would be too hard because I didn't think we would be given a specific theme, especially one so IRRELEVANT to the text. Now I'm scared for Mod A and B where the rubric is a lot more vague and unpredictable.
I swear every year SMH publishes the same article for 4u maths " Question 16 stumps students". Like it's the final question, what do you expectThe NSW Education Standards Authority followed through on promises to make exams less predictable on the first day of the 2019 HSC, but students were thrown.www.smh.com.au
'Incredibly stressful': 'Obscure' first HSC English exam stumps students
Ye, I did 'The Crucible' ... we never did 'Love' in class before lol. I guess NESA really wanted to stop rote learning even though every other subject (with the exception of the maths subjects) are basically rote learning...Did anyone do tim winton? That question was also ridiculous, we had never done independence in class lol.
So stupid. I would much rather if a useless compulsory subject was rote learning as opposed to ReCOnSiDeR type questions on themes never even taught in most classes lol.Ye, I did 'The Crucible' ... we never did 'Love' in class before lol.
