With the exam is it better to start with the exegisis first and then the essay or is it better to do the exam in chronological order( part a- b -c) ?

Depends on your strengths - I did something like 2 extended response, then exegesis, then one ext response, then essay (in the last 25-30 min :P).  Basically I went strongest to weakest so I knew I had all my best stuff out early.  Leaving ext response till last could also be a good method - it's easier to write in dot-points when you run out of time :P  Whatever you spend most time on in reading time (esp in the last 5 min) should probably be your first writing.

Just remember to LABEL exactly what question you're doing really clearly - you have a totally blank script book (I nearly ran through two actually :P) and can do it in any order, but write really bold (and possibly highlight it)
'PART A - Extended Response
QUESTION 1'.

And yeah, all the best guys!  Prepare to own it.

Good Luck Everyone for the Exam!
Fingers crossed for some decent extended response questions, and a decent exegesis  :P

The exam went well! I felt like I could have performed better due to time constraints, overall it was a fair exam! How did everyone find it ?

I felt like I could have preformed better but nevertheless it's over and I managed to finish on time, the essay and exegesis was pretty good but I struggled a bit on part A, especially the commentary didn't think they would ask about political aspects in first century Judea. Unsure if I can obtain over 40SS at this point  :-\

What sort of questions were there?  I'm v. curious ;D and yeah, that does sound like a tricky question!

Finishing on time was definitely better than I managed, I didn't finish all my bodies in my essay (yeah, timing was my worst issue and I always felt ripped off by it Sardothienn).  After that essay, I thought I'd got an SS about 3-5 lower than I actually got, so... you never know!

Part A -Extended Responses
Q1. What is the Sabbath? Two examples in the Gospel according to Lk of Jesus being accused of breaking the sabbath. Using these two examples, explain what the evangelist attempts to show about Jeus' attitude towards the Sabbath.
Q2. Who was Theophilus? Why...begin his narrative with a reference to Theophilus? What does beginning his narrative with a formal prologue tell us about the culture and purpose of the evangelist?
Q3. Briefly describe the behavour of each of the two criminals crucified with Jesus in Chap 23. What roles do the two criminals play in the crucifixion narrative? Suggest wht the evangelist presents the criminals that way.
Q4. With close reference to the passage below, write a commentary explaining the political and religious aspects of how Judea was governed during the time of Jesus. Lk 23:6-12
Part B-Essay
Q5. Rev. Bredan Bryne SJ has suggested that the I.N of the Gospels according to Lk 'raise themes and issues central to the Gospel'. Discuss the ways in which the I.N in Chp 1 + 2 of the Gospel according to Lk could be interpreted to introduce themes and issues central to the whole gospel. In your response, provide examples from across the Gospel according to Lk as a whole.
Q6. Explain how Jesus' teachings while he is at dinner in Lk 14:7-24 reflect his messages found throughout the gospel about the inclusive nature of Jesus' mission. In your response, consider how the writer of the Gosepl according to Lk uses Jesus teachings, including the Parable of the Great Dinner, to convey Jesus' message both to Jesus' hearers and to the evangelist's original audience.
Q7. 'Throughout the Gospel according to Lk, the evangelist portrays women as witnesses to Jesus' teachings and as faith puff disciples.' Discuss how the writer of the Gospel according to Lk uses women as witnesses to Jesus' teachings and to develop the theme of discipleship. In your response, refer to at least 3 examples from across the whole gospel.
Part C-Exegesis
Q8 Lk 6:27-42
Q9 Lk 9:21-36
Q10 Lk 19:28-44

Agreed, that commentary was quite tricky, and I wasn't too keen on working with the crucifixion narrative. Time constraints got me too, couldn't finish my Exegesis on time, was up to Themes, and had just started meaning and significance
:-\ :-[ No hope for 40 SS for me
Sounds like everyone did alright in the end though :), fingers crossed for some results

For those feeling uneasy about whether they can't score 40+ SS, I'd say don't worry about it too much. As bangali_lok mentioned, you never know what outcome your going to achieve. I managed a 39 SS, after having completely bombed out on the Section B essay that was worth 30 marks due to running out of time; I don't think I even wrote a full page but it was the worst essay that was practically verbal diarrhoea haha. So if that's any indication, I'm sure you guys did well, especially if you wrote all sections to completion, unlike me. Well done either way :)

Thanks for your words of wisdom  :D, just felt like I didn't illustrate the amount of hard work I put in leading up to the exam on paper. With that being said, I might have not done as bad as I thought I did (well finishing everything was definitely a good thing even-though I could use more time :P). Just trying to stay optomistic and hope for the best, who knows I might achieve my goal of 42SS. These yr 11 exams just started so it can keep my mind off this subject. Thanks again, I bet your essay wasn't that bad :P and 39 is a pretty good score  :)

Totally understand the part how the exam doesn't exactly reflect all the knowledge and hard work accumulated throughout the year. But great optimism you have there! Cheers :)

Hey Heids! Love your passion for this subject, keep up the optimism!
I'm starting exegesis next week, but I still can't comprehend the idea of literary forms. Do you happen to have any good resources connected to literary forms? Also, do you recommend that I highlight key passages and try defining what type of literary devices are involved?

Tried to write an exegesis, but literally looked at the paper for one hour thinking "how the hell am I supposed to start this thing?!". I need tips as to what I should do before writing an exegetical response for a passage. Thanks again Heids :)
