    why is English compulsory?

    I get why its needed up to year 10 as a core subject to prepare students if they want to continue it, but after that it just drags out and you don't really learn much that's useful in the grand scheme of things other than to overanalyse texts. id also much rather using that subject slot for...

    Why is Looking for Richard so awful?

    I have never had such a visceral hatred for a text throughout my schooling career, then that of LFR. I don't think that there is a redeeming factor. I love metatextuality but oh my lord! Every time Richard gives a monologue I literally want to throw up all of my desk. I cannot do this, send...

    Is dropling English Advanced to Standard worth it for me?

    I've been mostly a C student in advanced, apart from prelims where I got a B because I genuinly studied. I've been unlucky with essay writing times as I'm a slow writer. However standard isn't doing any much better. My mark of 41/60 in advanced was higher than the English standard highest mark...

    English Papers

    I've noticed that there aren't that many english advanced papers on any of the websites (**********, BOS or ACEHSC), so if anyone has them it would be greatly appreciated if they could share them, even your own school papers is fine, because eventually we can collate them all.
