    Monday 14th... first exam! :excited:

    It's French Higher Listening, probably one of the hardest for me, but I'm pumped for it

    Soon we'll all be in college - I have a feeling that the time until 23rd Aug will whizz by.

    Also good luck with English Literature, what books are you doing? I'm doing Purple Hibiscus (love that book) and Touching The Void (No just no). I really hope I get a B in that subject too.
    Im doing Heroes and Hound of baskervilles ( The most boring book e.v.e.r )

    Checking I know keywords to listen out for - using Linguascope!
    Also, myfrance by the BBC is helpful. Not doing loads yet though...

    Really need to get a few more marks than I did in my mock! Achieved A* in Reading but a high B in Listening - if I boost just a little bit, then overall I'll get the A*
    What are you aiming for? Are you on Edexcel?

    :adore:
    Hope I get it... really anticipating Results Day already despite not even having done any exams yet

    Could someone nicely explain the difference between the form of a poem and the structure of a poem?

    The form of a poem is usually more specific to a certain genre of poem, e.g. Haiku, sonnet, ballad etc.

    The structure refers more to the length of the stanzas or lines etc.

    Hope this helped

    Do you reckon it's possible to talk about both form and structure in any question that would come up in the AQA Poetry exam? I'm aware I'd need to do so to get a safe A* but.. how can I say something insightful about it having long lines? Okay I could say it has enjambment but if there's nothing interesting to say about that I've just given myself a B.

    Sorry if this reply sounds annoying but I want to fix this up, got an A* last time might as well try and get A* for the whole thing.

    You could talk about how the length of the lines effect the rhythm of the poem, and whether this relates to the theme of the poem (whether it increases or decreases the tempo for a certain reason). Or how it adds emphasis to certain points to make you think a little bit deeper.

    You could even speak about which words rhyme with which, and whether this has been done to add significance to these words.

    I've just tried to give a couple of ideas here, but I'd definitely ask somebody else too if I were you, as I am no expert at English Literature! In fact, it's my worst subject!

    Do you mean that you need to simplify:

    nr^3 \cdot \dfrac{2}{3}nr^2

    ?
    No, I mean you need to multiply them

    And the n thingy..is supposed to be the pie sign..

    That is unfortunate.You might need to get a part time job before you work full time to get the appropriate work experience.

    Did mine last year ^_^ , why did your school do it now? Wouldn't it be more useful revising topics in class?
