well, section 1 was easy and straight forward compared to the trial. But i don't really like the 8 marks question that ask for your own experience of belonging ..since i am always a mystery , dont' really wanna to share my shit to the examiners.. i seriously want to write a big question mark across all the lines. :(

Would you happen to know how many percentages of people might get full marks in extended responses?

My teacher always says &quot;there is no such thing as a perfect essay&quot; and never awards a full mark.
So you are prob right.

My teacher said markers would give full mark for 1% for extended responses. So abt 20 people would get full mark. omg, i'm getting more and more nervous
