Past exam papers

As I’ve suggested to many of you, I think it’s a good time to start practising essays under timed conditions. Whenever you write an essay from now on, do it in an hour. Try to establish some timings and guidelines that suit you: for example, 5-10 minutes planning, intro in 10 minutes, paragraphs in 30 minutes, conclusion at about the 45-50 mark.

Here is a link to VCAA’s past exam papers. No excuses now!

And don’t forget that you need to practise all three types of essays – Context, Text, and Language Analysis. I’m happy to look at whatever you produce.
