People generally start writing their first drafts for their scripts as soon as they start 3/4 (some even earlier), and add to it throughout the year. There is of course no harm in starting a bit later (I started my scripts a month before the exam and still pulled a decent score).

Regarding length, the actual oral exam is really short (only 15 minutes), but as you have no idea what questions they could ask, it's best to prepare as many as possible. I did Chinese at XJS where we were recommended to have at least 50 questions for each.
Ok! Thanks
Spread kindness!

Hey guys,
Since it's getting pretty close to the oral exams, I was wondering if anyone had any tips for the oral and could tell me what experience they had with their oral/how was it like?
Thanks!

Hey guys,

Random question, but are we allowed to write in pencil for the exam? Our teacher, who is quite experienced, said we can, but it just seems odd since you have to write in pen for most other subjects.

Thanks in advance!

Safer to just write in pen. The reason VCAA wants you to write in pen is because exams are scanned and they show up clearest when written in pen as opposed to pencil. If you must write in pencil then use one that’s really dark, but pen is the much safer option.
