When you guys say pages, can you be specific about how many words per line you do?

I had 6-8-6 in terms of page count and I have 7-12 (so incidental) words per line.

I dunno how anyone had time or cared enough to sit there and count each page they wrote.

Only took 10 seconds altogether for me to count.

I had 7/7/7 in terms of pages and in previous exams I've written on average between 8-10 words a line

I would have liked to have made my extended response and creative a bit longer... But I did get them both finished in time, so that's a plus I guess.

I really liked it!

"The process of discovery involves uncovering what is hidden and rediscovering what is known." Worked PERFECTLY for my thesis! (Was cheerin')
Thank god they didn't ask for 2 RT tho since they hadn't since 2008 I was a little worried.

Creative was adaptable, just, got my story out. That was ok.

Only section I'm iffy about was unseen, but wrote down as many techniques as possible so I think there's some marks lying around in there.

RIP discovery

Same though. I wrote about 4/4 pages for each section (Which is actually quite a lot for me lol). I was expecting 5 but was happy to be able to finish them and get all my points down.

A lot of people seem to feel they would fail with <4 pages. Makes me feel so inadequate haha.

Smashed everything but the essay. I finished it but didn't get much time for synthesis. Left out the conclusion because that's pointless.
I didn't time myself but I had like 2 minutes left over.

Also don't worry about the paper too much. I guarantee you can not predict your mark.

Just focus on killing tomorrow's paper.

I tried predicting my mark when I did my HSC.

For BOTH advanced and extension I was about 10 raw marks off.

My friend expected a state rank and got a band 5.

Some people thought they almost failed and got some of the highest marks in my school.

You seriously never know with English, especially in the actual HSC.
