Practicising adapting my creative to different stimulus usually from the ones my teacher has given and past HSC papers.
Looking at trial papers and writing essay scaffolds.

TBH I've been slacking off extension in favour of advanced! Should remedy this soon :)

Hi! I'm not studying for ext at all yet - my timetable is spread out so that I have 4 days free before ext and to me it's probably the easiest exam, so I'll just study for it then. When the time comes, I have a generalised essay that I'll memorise for the most part, with a broad thesis about the genre itself (I'm doing sci-fi) that is relevant to my essay regardless of the question - my essay then follows the development of the genre as I discuss my texts, and I can morph this to fit the question. I'll then practice writing it out to different questions under timed conditions, and tweak it where I can. I'll do the same for my story which is also pre-written and adaptable to (hopefully) almost all stimiuli. Something else I find helpful is to write a timed creative piece to a stimulus that I know DOESN'T fit with my story - this forces me to broaden the premise of my story and that I know ways I can change entire storyline if need be!

Sorry for being a few weeks late - I only just saw your reply! And no, I'm doing 10 units, with English Advanced and Maths implied because of the extensions, but should probably change my signature because it's not very clear. Glad you pointed that out! A school just near mine does compacted curriculum though so I have some friends who do that 😊
