    Hi guys,

    I was wondering if anyone had the exam questions on A Midsummer Night's Dream from last year and maybe even had some predictions for this year?

    Really wish more people replied here lolmy teacher thought that the mechanicals and comedy could come up because it hasn't before

    Hi guys,
    I've been trying to rule out possible characters and themes so here are the Q's for previous years. (Not exact wording but you get the idea!)

    'Charming, creative, chaotic'..this was on Puck.
    'Nothing in the play is quite what it seems'.

    'Oberon brings order and renewal'
    'Learning to see....'

    The presentation of love
    Theseus and Hippolyta as a framework of authority and experience.

    Character-wise, this leaves the mechanicals, the lovers, Bottom and Titania available for a Q. Not too sure about themes but there could be one on the significance of the moon.

    Hope this helps with revision x

    My teacher thought it could be comedy too. Something like asking whether the play was a comedy or a tragedy? Order/Disorder too. Presentation of love would be nice. Presentation of women too.

    I'm not doing a character question, too specific imo.

    Can't believe women was a question in both Part A and B. Lovely!
