It was pretty boring. I screwed up creative bad. My set ones had nothing to do with community because I was avoiding cliches. Ugh

I rejected it and talked about not belonging for creative. But what did it mean about different forms of writing?

I thought it was interesting that the answer booklet has your name printed on it. Wasn't the point of the BOS number to make it "non-identifiable"?

Oh, and did anyone take the exam out of the room? I forgot :(

dat 6 marker.....

My creative didn't fit community lol and yeah think I screwed that up. Essay was good though, loved the question!
Did not know what to talk about in the 6 marker for one text...

Does anyone remember what the question was for the essay and stimulus?
Scanning it on to the computer to upload as we speak.

Honestly you can tell it was quite an easy paper. In saying that though, I dont feel like I linked with the essay question too well, went astray too often. Cos of the difficulty (or lack thereof) of the exam, it will either be a) marked harshly or b) have a high B6 cutoff. Hope its not the former

Yea it was quite easy comparatively. Predictable essay and creative q's (i actually guessed there was going to be community in creative)
And s1 is always straightforward.
I think it's going to be marked harshly or everyone gets really high...
