    I decided to be different and wrote about checking out me history and medusa because i wrote at the end they're similar in the fact that others actions affected them. Checking out me history - people stopped him from being able to find his identity through black history and medusa her husband affected her life

    Yeh, that's good!!! We can help eachother!

    not sure...my record of results for english is not exactly the best ... We'll see!
    I'm sure you'll do well though

    Yes I am.. .hate the timing, I do love the descriptive writing questions though!

    It is !!! If anything a little too hot, It was boiling in the exam hall! I'm going out for a dog walk in a bit, then may do a couple of physics past papers for wednesday..(i think its wednesday..)
    Cool! I do need some help too
    Why do you say that? What did you get in the controlled assessments, if you don't mind me asking

    The exam hall was boiling aswell! Unpredictable weather I guess
    There was a massive fly that distracted me, because it came right into my face!
    ARGH! Scary stuff!

    not sure ... may not have been explained in quite enough depth..

    I'm sure time will go really quickly until the week before...then it will go sooo slowly, the night before..omg I'm going to be so stressed!!! I probably won't sleep, will be on here instead

    Good luck to you too!!!!! I'm sure you'll do fab!
    I'm sure you did fine.

    I know exactly what you mean! I'll be glued to TSR too Last year I had to listen to music so loud all the time to numb my brain, because I worried that much. :eek:

    And thanks, let's hope so!

    I did relationships too! I chose the Quickdraw question and compared it to The Farmer's Bride.
    I was about to attempt Quickdraw and compare it to Sister Maude because of this whole betrayal theme, but I thought that I'd write better with Praise Song... and so I stuck to that, providing the fact that I really wanted that poem to appear
    I think that Sonnet 116 would have been nice too x

    Strange, I was going to compare it to Sister Maude too! I decided I'd have more to write about with Farmer's Bride though. I'm not really a fan of Praise Song or any other sentimental poems. They just bore me... I don't know what that says about me! :lol:

    I thought the English exam went well, better than Tuesday's! I was doing the relationships poems so I did the QuickDraw question and compared it to sister maude

    I don't think the unseen poem was too bad either, although from talking to other people I think I might of interpreted the end of the poem slightly wrong...everyone else I've spoken to wrote that the broken window and sky on the floor was about broken hopes and dreams, but I wrote how a Childs bedroom is supposed to be a safe place, but with the broken window it's like the wars got in there room so it's no longer safe for them and then the sky on the floor was saying how the war made children question what's right and what wonder if what they think they know is true.....

    How did you guys interpret the ending of the unseen poem?

    Cool
    One of my other classmates compared Quickdraw with The Farmer's Bride, so your not the only one!
    :lol: This whole cluster bored me to death! Didn't really enjoy it all!

    Same! Way better than Tuesday's!
    I did the Praise Song... and compared it with Sonnet 43, but I was so tempted to do the first question!

    The unseen poem I wrote how war is a destruction and how this was shown through the adjectives and stuff like that. The ending I wrote who it isn't safe anymore, and the sky falling down could connot the destruction of hopes etc......

    After the disastrous exam on Tuesday today felt a lot better

    Did anyone else compare Quickdraw to The Manhunt? And did anyone else write about the 'giant playing bowls' possibly being God for the unseen poetry?

    I'd remove this if you're referring to an exam done today.

    I didn't think it was too bad either. Was really miffed when we came out as on the titration question when you had to convert it into grams etc I got 12g. Everyone else got 48g and had a right go at me saying I was stupid - came home earlier and saw most peeps on here thought it was 12g - was soooo happy!
