    Discursive Writing Piece - Year 11 (feedback and advice)

    This writing was a small part of my Year 11 exam, with this section given a mark of 16/20. This story was written in 25 minutes under exam condition. I feel as if it was marked pretty harshly given the time (most of the markers at my school are HSC markers). Any feedback or advice is much...

    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.
