Hi there,

So for unit 3 I got 80/100 marks
and for my oral presentation I only got 26/40 :((((
I feel so discouraged now.

If I manage to get 56+/60 for my comparative essay and smash the exam, is there still hope for a ~45 study score?

Also how roughly how many practice essays did past high scorers do in prep for exam?

Thanks
Depends on your sac ranking - which is more important than your actual scores so no one can really say whether you can get 45+.

As for how many prac exams - it will really vary between everyone - it's just important that you are getting better with each essay so that means getting someone to look at your essays and tell you what areas you can improve and also looking at really good sample essays.

For text responses, which type of prompts is 'better' to write about, character-based prompts or thematic prompts? I know there isn't necessarily a 'better' one, but I can't choose between two prompts for a comparative essay.

It mostly depends which theme/characters you have studied more throroughly, eg. if you have written a tonne of "leadership themed" essays then you are more likely to write an in-depth essay on leadership than if you did a theme you haven't looked at much.
I'd suggest to be prepared for whatever gets thrown at you but go with whichever you feel more confident with. Hope that helps.  ;)

Hey han0002,
I've seen you post this same question a few times around the forum. Do you want to try explaining what you already know and think, and others may be then able to jump in to let you know if you're on the right track and give you some extra insight?
