    Extension 2 english

    Yeah, I agree that the theory isn't entirely necessary to know. Read. I don't have any notes that aren't specifically related to the topic mine was on (the link between changeling literature, Catholic indoctrination and infanticide) but the best advice I can give is just to read read read-...

    I was hoping there wouldn't be a foreign policy question, I found it so boring I just didn't study it. So it was lucky the communist theory and practice one was so excellent. I finished the WW1 section in about 20 minutes so I spent an hour on my Russia essay, which was really good because it...

    2007 poetry B.O.W titles!

    At the moment, my working title is 'Patria Potestas'. Patria Potestas is the name of an ancient Roman law meaning 'the power of the father'. That has a lot to do with the rest of the work as well, at the beginning the mother and father argue about something and that is the catalyst eventually...

    2007 Poets

    Yeah, I had my second Viva about two weeks ago, and had to have a full draft for that. So I've got 4, 000 words, but once I get that draft back there'll be editing; oh yes, there will be editing. Mine is unstructured. I've been told that it recalls the stlye of T.S Eliot and Plath, however. I...

    Hey, I did mine on Friday. The Frames question was on Warhol, the practice and Conceptual Framework ones I can't recall, but that doesn't matter because they'll be different to yours anyway. Have you done a HSC-style art exam before? You don't really need to study any one thing in particular...

    2007 poetry B.O.W titles!

    I'm not going anywhere near a title until I'm finished writing, I'm making a list of potential ones as I go but I don't want to think of it as one name and then have to change it. The title's going to influence how you and other people perceive it, so I want to wait until I have a perfect title...

    Oh my GOD-- Week 10!

    Whoa, that's pretty early to have to hand in a first draft, isn't it? I did my first Viva Voce a couple of weeks ago and only had to have 1000 words of draft done. And I know someone who's onlu recently handed in their proposal! I thought that was late too, considering mine was last year.
