you can get a high band 5 memorising essays. even a high band 6 is the hsc questions line up with your memorised essays perfectly.

Isn't it so much easier if you do? Rote learn and cram hard. Easy way to get good marks.

made good essays, memorised them. did not ever read the texts, nor my related texts. pick foreign related texts, they work great.

94 for Advanced.
You need to be able to write analytical, sophisticated, powerful essays, memorise them, and be able to adapt them to any question. You should also have a thorough knowledge of your texts, if you need to call upon info not in your essay to answer the question. But the rule of thumb is: answer the rubric. questions comes from rubric. answer the question.

i disagree... memorising essays is probably the worst way to go about it. Its better to understand concepts, improve your vocabulary, memorise quotes.. far better than just memorising 1500 words and having no essay writing skills when you reach uni
