What if your extension mark is better than one of your other 2 unit subjects that's not english?They only take the best 2 UNITS of english. So if you do advanced and extention, and your advanced marks are better than extention, they wont take your extention marks into account. The whole paper is out of 45, and the entire exam for english is out of 105.
To be honest, not all people have the same priorities when it comes to education. Combine this with the fact that quite a few in this catagory dont have much in the way of natural ability and you have the situation where they really have nothing to say beyond 5 total pages. My uncle used to be a HSC supervisor and in some of the schools he went to, people would write their name, scribble for 10 or 15 minutes and then go to sleep.I don't understand how people, after 13 years or so of education still can't finish exams and after two hours, write 5 pages in total for all three sections which is equilivent to my section one. WHAT ARE YOU GUYS DOING IN THOSE TWO HOURS!?!
But I guess everyone is different, I finished with three minutes to go.
