We have been granted exclusive access to the rarest of species, an QCE student with time on her hands. We sat down with the student in question, Annalise (17) to ask just how this situation arose.
“I’m completely floored,” the young student explained. “Here I was, just minding my own business when it came out of nowhere. It’s such a strange feeling. I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy.”
After completing her third practice English essay for the week, crafting responses for her Modern unseen text in class exam and doing her (and another girl’s) share of a group Biology project, Annalise found herself with a few hours to herself.
“I went on Facebook,” she details. “Not to procrastinate but because I genuinely had time to tag people in memes.”
Despite the recent fault Annalise is quick to praise her school’s otherwise flawless record: “They’re so good to us here. They make sure our assignments are all due at the same time so we never get to this state.”
The Footnotes contacted the school in question, whose spokesperson denied Annalise’s claim commenting, “A student never feels as if they have a spare moment. The HSC is designed to test an individual to breaking point both emotionally and physically, so I find it hard to believe that she [Annalise] didn’t have at least three other assessments she could prepare for.”
An English teacher, from the school in question, was quick to interject in agreeance, stating “I tell my students that they shouldn’t just memorise one essay for exams for this exact reason.”
