Good luck guys, not much activity on this board, but i guess its a small course.
Are you guys memorising essays and short stories, or summarising them?
My essay is a daunting 1700 words and my creatives 1400, r.i.p hand.

Oh God. I've finished the creative, but I still have to make my essay. I've been putting it off for days because it is so damn boring. I have an old essay I wrote a while ago, but it's pretty crappy.

I feel you man, I've done both but practising my essay just makes me go to sleep, especially with physics and chemistry so close to ee1. Anyway, hope I can scrap in a 42-44 aligned mark :D

Hi I just have some notes for the essay..and some previous essays I've written as a guide. I hope it goes okay :S Although I have a prepared Creative, I've noticed that the creative stimulus is usually very specific....

1700?!?! Wow... haha :p My essay is around 1500 and creative 1300-1400ish. I memorised my essay/creative quite a while ago just because I knew I had business the day before and would only have the night to study. Let's hope the stimulus isn't too specific!! :)

^ last year the creative specified 'where a letter features as an important element.' Some people interpreted that as writing their creative in the form of a letter, but imo it'd be better to incorporate a letter as a physical element rather than it dictating the textual form.
so they could ask for it, but unlikely

I highly suggest you cut out about 700 words, unless you can write 35 WPM, consistently. I think the easiest thing to do is find your weakest techniques, or where you are needlessly talking about context. I feel that talking TOO much about context can put so many words into your essay. I can give it a look if you want, i'm curious what you are talking about in those 2200 words :)
