I thought MOD B (Wilfred Owen) was pretty general
I don't think I answered the question properly for MOD A (Distinctively Visual) and MOD C (Into the World)

Hopefully I can get 45-ish

Did you do like 10 words/page?

No...I did 8-10 words per line, which is average and I wrote in cursive so it was smoother and faster to write :D
Nice, I did 4 pages for module a and b, 6 pages for module c

happy with section 2, 3. Oddly, section one stumped me on pygmalion. such is life. didn't like the question at all. so happy with close study of text, my prepared essay was literally the question of the exam.

i loved module a ! it was so general so i didnt really have to change my prepared essay much. module b was a bit confusing to adapt to but
i think i got there in the end, but can anyone tell me if the composer counts as an individual? hahaha i dont know i have gotten mixed answers ; ;.
module c killed meeee i had 28 minutes to write it and i have the slowest writing ever so i had to take out a whole paragraph from my prescribed. in the end my self selected text was longer than my prescribed because i really loved my ss so i wrote really fast ugh i dont know. orz.

module a - wilfred owen ; 17-19/20
module b - distinctive voices ; 15-19/20
module c - global village ; 10-15/20

Module A: Did 4.5 pages for it in the last half an hour... Still answered it alright I guess.
Module B: 5.5 pages for it. Probably my strongest essay. I did it first.
Module C: 6 pages. Quite strong also.

Probably got
Mod A: 17
Mod B: 19
Mod C: 18

Not sure how different the HSC markers mark compared to my school though :/
In trials I got 18, 20, 18.
