The re-write was on the 14th, right?

Your friends are idiots if they found an essay online and used it as their own. My English teacher last semester told me they used software similar to turnitin (google it) as an extra preventative measure just in case plagiarism occurs. lol good luck to your friends.

That's just the workaround. The 14th was technically a re-write. I did it for my first write as well.

They're complete idiots if they're stealing essays, especially for an online exam where it's easier to check. But then again, I could care less, first year university will weed them out easy enough.

What was the prompt this time?

I'm going to write it in May, and again in June (the normal session).

Oh yeah, is there multiple-choice error identification in sentences on the exam still?

Satisfaction comes from a variety of activities.
Here I was with an outline prepped for inspiration and it turns out the theme was actually variety...
My essay was solid nonetheless. I wrote about the importance of self-exploration to lead to happiness and the danger of conforming to societal expectations.

What do you mean by "multiple-choice error identification"?

Ah good stuff.
I just checked the current exams specs so sorry for confusing you ... I must have seen a really old past exam.

Did anyone find the e-exam advantageous?

Oh now I know what you mean.
Yeah that was cut out like 10 years ago.
This year it was an article, a poem synth with a story, and the free write.

I actually enjoyed the e-exam. I hated it when my teacher made us do a practice one, we were all cramped in the lab and the typing was really distracting. This time we were in the library and there was lots of space so there was little noise. I appreciate being able to add in tons of stuff and how dynamic it is as opposed to writing. It is more difficult to extract meaningful quotes and whatnot as opposed to a paper-based exam, but I didn't find it too offsetting. I also made sure to ask for some scrap paper to plot out my ideas before writing.

Oh and if you're lucky, you'll have a teacher like mine that didn't turn off spell-check. (Not that you'll need it, you got into UPenn =P)
