Lessons learned from the 2014 Assessor's Report - English

To celebrate the release of the 2014 Assessor's Report - because yes, I celebrate like this on weekends - attached is an annotated version with comments highlighting the tips and tricks that I believe the Class of 2015 and beyond should be aware of.

Just like in other subjects where the examiners deliberately retest areas where students had trouble last time, the English department are quite likely to retread some ground.

Hopefully this can provide some help to those uncertain about what the assessors are looking for.
Let me know if anyone has trouble viewing the document and I can try making an in-forum post (though it might be a bit messy) :)

Thanks, this is really helpful.

I reckon some other people should do the same for other subjects  ;)

I'd do them for maths.
But apparently the people for maths in VCAA are bloody slow because I'm still waiting on the update for whatever the fuck is happening next year, let alone the assessor report. >(

(also, go lauren, being fabulously helpful as always. ;) )

This is truly a nice resource. Cheers, Lauren :)

The only other examiner's reports I could find were the English Language and Literature ones. Do you happen to know in about how long the ones for other subjects will begin to roll out (or where they show any announcements)?

I believe they're all meant to come out in February at some point, but I could be wrong. I know some subjects (languages in particular) aren't available till ~April :s

I'd do them for maths.

Lol, who would have though the English departments would be the most organised!?  ::)
