Wow...wish I had seen this before MY trial exam! I'll add the question that was in my trial though I can't remember the exact ques and I am just paraphrasing...

Write a transcript of a discussion between three students based on the topic 'Truth and falsehood: falsehood always wins the first battle, truth the last. And base it on eps from Frontline and TWO related texts of your own choosing.

Far out im like the rest of you i wish i had of seen this before i went into my trials coz i think i will fail the frontline bit. Our question was hard it was something like "Text create their own truth" and we had to respond to that using frontline and one related material it was crap coz i could't think of anything to write.

1. "Telling the truth is an ideal all subscribe to but few
achieve." Write an essay on this theme, referring to the way the
truth is represented in your prescribed text and other related texts
of your own choosing. (Question from Wizard Notes: A Student's Guide
to Frontline)
2. You are the host for a radio program Media in the Spotlight.
You have invited a guest on the program to discuss 'truth in the
media'. This discussion is based on the prescribed text and other
texts of your own choosing. Write the script of the discussion,
including your concluding response to the view expressed by your
guest


u know what, i've got too many questions but not enough answers!!:D

"... Its very hard to know the truth. I think that people are bombarded with information, images and ideas, all aimed at persuading us to a particular point of view. We can't tell where the truth lies. We dont know where or how to take action."

Explore the representation of truth in the prescribed text you have studied and other related texts. How has your study enabled you to understand where truth lies?


Write a close textual analysis of 'The Siege'. In your analysis you should evaluate how the medium of production, textual form, perspective and choice of language influence meaning. In your analysis you must also make comparisons and contrasts to other related texts of your own choosing.


To what extent is representation also a misrepresentation? Write a persuasive feature article. Base this article on your evaluation of the ways truth is represented in your prescribed text and in other related texts of your own choosing.

Yeah I had the same "Every text constructs it's own truth" and did pretty shite.

My teacher steals ALL her material. Not one peice of original thought. Sorry Newtown ... it isn't my fault. My teacher thinks they are 'friends'. Their teacher thinks she is a parasite :D

Lol...our question was hard because none of us knew exactly what a transcript was! It was in the Paper One and I was like "should we ask?" and everyone was like "no it wont be in the next one." it was not only in Paper One and Paper Two, but also in our Extension One exam too lol

could they really give a question that specific? Referring to only one episode? I would be stuffed because i deliberately chose not to learn The Siege because from what i can see its the most common
