This thread will act as a ONE STOP SHOP for all English Advanced resources available on ATAR Notes!!

Check out the DISCOVERY MEGA THREAD if you haven't already! It contains all of our resources for the Area of Study - Marking threads, guides, and more! ;D

Asking Questions

If you have any question about English Advanced, you can ask it in our Advanced Question Thread - Whether its help analysing a poem, a question about how Advanced scales, or anything in between - We'll do our best to answer.

You can also start a new topic if you'd prefer to have your question separated from the rest, or if it is a little unique :)

Getting Feedback

Our Module Marking Thread is the place to post essays for any of the Modules - You'll get feedback from one of our markers, all English experts. And this isn't just one line feedback - This is detailed, a breakdown of what went well and what needs to be improved. If you aren't using it, you are shooting yourself in the foot!

Note that this thread is subject to our essay marking rules ;D.
