Melville High School started day two of the HSC today with the second part of the English exam. According to the group of Melville High School students who spoke to the Argus, this latest exam was a significant improvement over yesterdays.
"Today wasn't that bad; I really enjoyed it, I think we got lucky with what we were asked," Year 12 student Max Palise said.
"I thought today was better as well, yesterday felt like they properly stitched us up," fellow Year 12 student Kate Ferguson said.
For many, the HSC can be a stressful time; Max chose a unique way to deal with the pressure of exams and made himself a social media presence in the process.
"I made a meme about one of the texts, and it went viral, 2.6 thousand likes, 200 comments, it was crazy, I had no idea it was going to get so much traction," he said.
With only a few weeks left until the end of exams, students will be getting ready to start the next chapter of their lives, but many are still unsure about what comes next.
"Most of us have four to six exams left after this; I'm not sure how I'll feel about it when it's all over, I've really enjoyed reading all the English texts, who knows, maybe I'll come back and be an English teacher," Max said.
The final HSC exam concludes on November 11 and students will be able to see their results on December 17.
