Haha our class discussions got VERY out of hand... That's probably why I learned how to tune out of them around half yearly time haha... I got 85 in english and I was over the moon coz it was always a sub I wasn't great at... our teacher (who yelled at me like crazy at parent teacher interviews for having no motivation whatsoever) couldn't believe I did so well lol.Etheral said:i agree
english is whacked, i didnt memorise a single essay just practiced many text types over and over with similar ideas, got a good exam mark 91, but my internal killed me due to slightness of bias or marking against merit which pulled my hsc mark down.
overall i think english in teh hsc is a pile of dogsht, but thinking abou tit maybe i should have tried harder with this manure of a subject during mid year, our class discussions got out of hand, overanalysing things until it was completely absurd and out of context
...but you know what makes it feel weird?
i came within the double-0digits for assessment ranking, and initially had no hope with my exam, received 74% for trial mark as well i didnt even finish my module A paper (3/4 way through it) and receive what i did in teh hsc exam is way crazy, im not complaining though, but i dont understand how that works. maybe i ripped paper 1, lmao. who cares though, im going where i want to go.
Anyways I'm getting off the topic, english is utter crap at the HSC level. Everything was overanalysed to the point where you got marks for saying the most absurd things, like for the modules paper, the stuff I contrived was a joke and I still went well (It was better than my paper 1) and to me doesn't indicate that I have an understanding of the textual integrity or how meaning is made blah blah blah... it just shows I can talk crap lol and then link it back to a retarded, non-sensical question.
