How the hell do people write so much? 30 pages....WOW.
I wrote 12 for the essay, and 7 for the creative, and that was more than most people in my class. Granted, the entire time that I was doing the creative piece all I could think about was how much time I had left till I finished my HSC. The countdown started with about 40 minutes to go...I would write for 5 mins, look at the clock and waste some more time. As the supervisors came round to collect the booklets, one of them commented that it must have been my last exam. I looked like this > Boy was she right!
for all those people who said they saw the 6-10 page samplar and band 6 answers in the standards package put your hearts to rest.
no offence to all those people who DID write alot, but the samplar/band 6 answers show that it is about answering the question, it is answering the question which gets u kickass marks; not heaps of written pages - if you answer the question like a tank you'll get a mark you deserve
but most pplz think..cuz everyone spends more time on the essay.. therefore standard will be higher... whereas wit the creative.. the overall standard would be lower cuz a lot of pplz dont leave enough time for it... hence due to the qwuality difference... stuffing up in creative is not as bad as stuffing up in the essy...
