I think the question was alright. In general belonging questions are pretty easy anyway because they're usually general so you can adapt and everything. Only thing was I'm afraid I didn't write enough... I write kinda big and messy.. then people next to me had tiny writing. I finished with 25mins to go so I got more nervous and checked my paper and tried adding stuff. Maybe I'm just a fast writer.. I hope so.

Question was so good imo
My generic was about people and places and identity so my eyes actually lit up during reading time hahah

Surprisingly it was very generic for the last year of belonging. Overall, glad that my generic essay was revolved around connections. All that I had to do was mould it to perceptions instead, with the focus being on identity. Very happy nonetheless :)

Finally, someone i can relate too, so many people saying it was generic, easy, whilst im busting my ass trying to figure out what the question is asking

If i only wrote 1 paragraph for my related, could I still get 12+/15 ;_;

i had no time to write the other fml (I had 3 paragraphs though)
Haha, I just randomly smushed related text and namesake into the third para
Wrote conclusion with like two minutes left

Yeh for some people this was a pblem. For eg my friend who had 3 texts had to go around using 2 and ended up only with 700 words. Hsc recommends minimum 800

Same that's all I had to do. Perceptions and identity mould. My rank in terms of easiest to hardest:

3 texts?! but didn't the question just specify 1 related + 1 core?

The question was good but I didn't have time to write all the points I wanted

what type of ways haha?
Oh I mean you can indicate the perceptions I.e. through phrases like 'indicated to raimond' or 'was apparent to raimond'. Although I reckon you Will still lose some marks for not perfectly assimilating the word into your essay

Seems like a really broad question that would have been quite good for those who had memorised essays tbh
