Jesus Christ that was a horrendous genre question. They may as well have said "WRITE PRE-PREPARED RESPONSE IN THE LINES PROVIDED". What happened to extension english?

Really enjoyed it. Yet again the question was typically wordy for the essay (texts and ways of thinking) but once you pulled it apart it was very doable. I was fretting about it but I'm so happy with how it turned out.
So glad it's over!

After teh Bomb was pretty stock standard, although the specifity of the creative writing made pre planned response a no go. WHy do they love letters so much?

Ohh and it was so annoying, ask for extra booklets at start of exam, supervisor says I have to ask during the exam. Ask for the during exam, supervisor distracts you be talking about marking the blue sheet urrrrg.

Used up 7 whole booklets, 4 for the essay and 3 for the sotry. (12 pgs, and 9 pgs respectively chyeeeah)

COnsidering how it was like the subject I studied least for (haven't studied that much since trials), it went much better than expected!

i agree with u, aced it with not much effort. a lot of people in my grade thought it was their best exam and the creative was mouldable.

Yeah it was pretty standard from crime and the creative was rather easy to mould your response to. I am pretty happy with it :)

Who else did Language and Gender? The question was so loooong, and had a few concepts to consider, but it was a fairly standard response overall. Creative was fairly simple too, though I suck at creatives regardless of what the stimulus is like. What did everyone thing of the L&G essay though?
