Fairly certain they topped both this year...
Advanced; they essentially learn everything together and I heard of a lot of the people doing the same related texts :\. Then again, I used pre-written essay that I adapted to the question, like most Ruse kids.

I actually regret not taking Extension Englishes, not only for the fact that I honestly think I could have composed an amazing piece worthwhile of publication in this years' series, but because I believe it would have been much more fascinating that taking the Extension Mathematics courses.

+ I'm so pro at numerous literary styles. (that's just being cocky)

I completely agree. Throughout the year I had so many lightbulb moments that could of been moulded into a great ext 2 work. My favourite idea was doing poetry with Shakespeare's idea of the seven stages of man. The child, the lover etc.

Could I pick ext 2 up at TAFE for the fun of it? haha

I think I am going to purchase the copy of this year's publication that comes out. I want to see the works of my state-wide cohort.
