Good luck for tomorrow guys! Take tonight off and make sure you have everything ready for tomorrow.

Hopefully you guys come back afterwards to share your thoughts and maybe write up some tips for next year's batch and then use this site for VCE in the years ahead, until then all the best.

Sorry, I have another question :P.

For argumentative writing is there a technique or way to come up with arguments?

Think about it? LOL

Takes practice and a couple of mins (max) of planning. If you have a structure that has questions in it (like mine) it's then easier to answer the questions and hence make arguments.

It was whether the new 'crime approach' was right, with us investing in jails and all that. :D

Haha my sibling told me about the topic for creative writing and I actually really liked it (A world without sunlight)?
Oh yeah and DEECD should really consider hiring a translator on the day because the number of parents who don't listen to them (like making way for kids to go in and taking photos of other students) was really high ._.

Some parents... -_-

Maybe they see it as some sort of really lame milestone in their kid's (or rather, their parenting's) life.

Hi there, I actually graduated (ie. finished year 12) from there in 2011, but I do try and visit once a year to see some of my fav teachers among other things.

From memory, I got 5 superiors? Been a while now :P

In regards to your school classes? Might be best to make a thread here Victorian Education Discussion asking for some help, this isn't the thread for that :)
