    I'm preparing for my written exam in June at the moment, but I'm struggling with the timing and the structure of paragraphs. I got a B in my AS and would really love to get a B this year too, or even an A but I know this exam could really bring my grade down. Has anyone got any tips or advice they could give me??

    Hey,


    Are you doing Shakespeare side, section C I believe? I'm currently doing that, it'd be great if we could share ideas as I really want an A too!

    Yeah I'm doing Shakespeare for section C and Lysistrata for section A and B. What performance did you see for Shakespeare?? I saw Othello by Frantic Assembly. I am literally making revision cards right now of rehearsal techniques for section A!!

    I'm so glad you made this post, as I also saw Frantic Assembly's Othello! I'm finding it really hard to make specific examples between the two contexts - making a basic comparison is pretty easy but in order to get A grades the modern example has to be pretty detailed . How have you managed this? Our teacher gave us NO warning of what the exam was going to be like before we saw it and therefore we didn't make many relevant notes so now I'm completely panicking! At least you're starting revision early

    Well my class has started making mind maps of specific moments in the performance and picking out all of the different aspects from it, e.g. acting, lighting, sound, costume and all that jazz. Then for each thing in that we've got a bubble coming off about the directors intentions and the original performance conditions. So this way, we have specific moments with a whole load of comparisons between the two eras. I think it is really helpful, especially since the question could ask about any aspect. I have a mock on Tuesday, I am petrified!!
