I swear I'd seen that exact question for part 3 somewhere, plus by fluke we'd done a question just like it in class so I was set for part 3 but part 2 wasnt great. "Journeys of the Heart"? It sounds so poncy and lame. Good thing there were others to choose from.

I really thought it was good
wasnt to crash hot on the reading task four texts took me by surprise
section 2 was good very general allowed you to write about anything really
and section 3 absolutly loved it, it was the same question as our school set for our half yearlys it was great wrote 9 1/2 pages totally thought it was so good

I didn't choose 1 & 2 because they from the same package, ie the CD case was made for text 2.

I did 3&4 and how 3 is an example of 4 etc.

I did 3 & 4 too. I thought it was a good paper. Q2 was broad so you could basically write about anything, and Q3 was similar to a practice question my teacher had given us in class last term, so it was heaps good!

I guess all i have to say about the paper is congrats to the Sydney Grammar people who managed to have the same question both from their trial, and the one seen yesterday, but i'm not complaining as i was able to get my hands on a trial and do the question before hand :D

More stressed about tomorrow though, king lear... they could throw pretty much anything at you because of the scope of it all, but thats a risk people take.

Good luck to everyone else out there tomorrow

Well, since it's almost three years old that's understandable. The past papers should be on the BOS website.
