I was sitting near this really smart chick and I never want to sit near her again, it's so depressing as she keeps putting her hand up every 10 mins for another booklet. She gets a new book, puts her hand up 10 mins later and i'm like...oh wait she's going for a tissue...oh no wait, it's another book.
i wrote 7,5,8- dont think it's length that counts to the hugest extent. its necessary to get in enough detail and depth to get marks but as long as your writing what they are after.... like all 4 pages could be of the best structure and quality.
chances are when someone writes one page in 1 and a half minutes are:
- they probably don't or won't recall what they wrote, cos they probably didn't think thru the question
- they probably didn't think about answering the question but just regurgitated their memories essay
- each bos booklet has 20 lines per page. If that person writes 5 words per page, that's 100 words. EVEN if he/she writes 100 words, in say 1 and a half minutes or 90 seconds that's 1.1111.. words per sec... x 60 that equals to
66.66667 words per minute
Can a person really write as fast as he/she types?
and is it possible to sustain it for 120 full minutes? i hardly think not
if that person used up 3 booklets for each module, most likely maybe only 3 or 2 words per line... which will look pathetic to the markers, which goes to show that,
quality over quantity!:apig:
Also, would you think that HSC markers would want to read an essay that's 3 booklets long, doesn't answer the question, and is filled with 2 or 3 words per line?
I must admit two or three words per line would look pathetic. I can imagine if I was a HSC marker and got a three booklet response, I would just be "I can't be bothered to read this". Personally, think it would leave a bad impression.
dont u think itd be better to make the most of every second u have in hte exam.. write as fast and as much as u can to cover all the aspects of the rubric and question so the marker is forced to give u full marks..
and if u write 2 oe 3 words per line the marker will probably thing, great, i can actually read this writing..
