As it was last year in the John Donne/ Sylvia Plath section??

Also, does anyone remember which poem was compulsory to mention? I have an inkling it was 'The Relique'....

i'm not doing poetry - i'm doing speeches =P and we've been told that it's very likely they'd specify a speech (there are like... 12?) so we have to learn them all =P

according to the hsc advice line they said its not very likely to specify as this narrows the question and the exam q's are generally broader

however yes in 2002 they did specify to do the SUNNE RISING, so it is safer to know all the poems, although you did have to refer to it, you still had the opportunity to refer to the others poems and could have focused on other poems so provided you know the basic meaning of all them and then a few in detail you should be right

hope that helps ringo

skrzynecki's poems are a prescribed text for changing perspective.
*prays that they won't specify skrzynecki*

I don't think they can specify for AOS. But for the Modules, your critical study can be specific. I think. :D

They can specify from stim bok- but this often narrows the question for too much of the state. Like if they used fractals it would be hard to use it for changing self etc- unless you are like really really smart. I

But thats the thing, in 2002 they had different questions for different change modules, ie if u did Changing Self, u got a seperate question.
However, yes its highly unlikely they can mention a specifc text from the stim...I think it mentions this in the syllabus somewhere
