All the questions were reasonably fair:

Frank/Bladerunner - textual form :-[
Hamlet - my favourite question ;-)
Justice Game - complexity of human attitudes and behaviour :-(


Also.....the fkn papers are sooo hard to right on and slippery - wasted probably 10mins of the 2hrs corre ting myseld!!!

Mod A: Frankenstein/Blade Runner was pretty easy (asking about how textual form showed the parallels in the texts). Mod C: Julius Caesar was good too (how texts reveal the complexities of human attitudes and behaviour). Mod B: Speeches was the HARDEST!! I never studied Faith Badler's speech!! :( I thought there'd be no way they'd ask that speech, let alone not even give an extract from the speech :'(

Ah, I did the same texts. I absolutely loved the Mod C question though as it was really exactly the same as past years, except reworked. :lol:

Frankenblade was alright, I just used my essay from the trial and talk about how the concepts were shown through form. Hamlet was semi-okay, I didn't write much for it though. The Fiftieth Gate was epic because I didn't need 2 related texts. Hoping for a half decent mark.

For those wondering, they specified 'At Mornington' for Harwood this year, and 'The Violets' last year.

Have Faith!
Chances are if you found it hard the majority of people in the state found it hard.
