I did the main and one from booklet - I found it really strange that they didn't say "at least ONE", but "ONE", so implying you're not meant to do more than one, because I wanted to use 2-3 - and then one of my own, because I didn't have the time to do both.

Hours and hours studying 3 booklet texts and 2 supp texts, and only needed one from each ><
Fucking HSC gayness.

.. to the person who said that they only asked for one, thanks for scaring the life out of me! (it says AT LEAST ONE not "ONE" :D)
oh wait; you're talking about the stimulus. well it always says just one, doesn't it?

i got confused by that whole 'refer to your prescribed text' thing.
do ya reckon it's alright to do one from stimulus, one from prescribed, and then for the text of your choosing, another prescribed????????

that's what i did, didn't intend to...but ran out of time
as long as you do 3 texts right????????

you see, there's my problem. it says prescibed, one stimulus, at least one own choosing= 3 minimum.
also, last year's comments from BOS said how the better responsed usually wrote about 3, but in depth??
soooo confused, but advice line opens at 4...meh, i'm over it now.

Eh. I honestly think I did an average job with it; my teacher's always told me to explore and analyse my three texts in-depth, and then my EE1 teacher went off and became an arse and said have a second related text for back-up, but fuck that. I was in-depth, chap, and I'm happy enough with that.

So I did three.

3 Skryznecki poems
1 BOS text
1 related text

One of my Skryznecki poems was pretty rushed, but the rest was pretty detailed I think.

i think when they say do your prescribed text, people who are doing the Immigrant chronicles actually have to write about an extra text

its because youre prescribed text is "immigrant chronicles" and not the actual name of the text

um... i think you are meant to do another text of your own choosing because they want to see if you can analyse a separate text that you have chosen yourself, so not one they have given you.
I don't know tho, it might not matter.
Also 3 in more detail is better than 4 in general :)

[1] - core = away by micheal gow.
[2] - stimulus = wind in the willows by kenneth grahame
[3] - related = the last samurai by edward zuric
[4] - related = the 5 people you meet in heaven.

i thought the question was rather good.
