u must be kidding. u mean 11th rank rite?? u seem to know ur stuff. but then again ws is a difficult topic with scarce resources and our teachers mark hard so dont blame urself, jus try ur hardest. im sure u can improve ur marks in the actual hsc. u'll get where u want in life regardless of ur rank anyway. hav a lil faith =)

hey they can ask us to write in any form rite...hmmzz..how should i study for ws? like i hav notes but i dont kno wat to memorise/learn by heart in depth n there's so much to know..and how do u integrate textual integrity into everything??? like if its a question asking about how the personal voice reveals Chang's historical and cultural context (i think that was hsc 2001), where do u fit textual integrity in that?

know the basic plotline of what happens to the three main women.

identify what text forms are used in the text, and find language/textual features which exemplify these forms

textual integrity, as ive said before, is about how well a text adheres to a certain genre.

you would argue that because WS is a mishmash of various genres (identify through language), it has little/no textual integrity.

for that question jimmik mentioned, you could first discuss how the personal voice is represented through the text. link it to historical and cultural (these overlap a bit), then you could start discussing how it reveals other genres, such as feminist, biographical etc. this shows that the book doesn't adhere to one set genre, compromising the others and therefore compromising integrity.

something like that.

Thankyou babydoll_!!! It seems like it's still mainly Seftoners doing Wild Swans. Shout out to all the ex-seftoners, I'm doing my HSC this year. Half-yearlies coming up soon.
