However, surprisingly I didn't request one for my play essay (which apparently a lot of my classmates did request for one).
One of my classmates, MF, did a 60-page f portfolio for the Play Based essay, (which all of us are like looking up in the air and saying, " she really beat us to it, didn't she??". Being that there is no word limit to it, I bet she will score 100 upon 100 if THAT is possible. She really surpassed all of us........... *no comment left liao*. Of course, coming from a background (where she has to do presentations and long proposals is one factor behind it. The training for it, is of course, one of the key factors in which she can just do it without blinking an eye over it!)
I did not do so badly for the first essay, and therefore felt that I did not need to request for an extension, although many of the other classmates did.
Well, to each their own.
