    so disappointed about narrow fellow, and we hadn't learnt the Castle so I had to do the badger question which was okay apart from the fact I hadn't looked over Foxes among the Lambs so...overall pretty ****
    So pissed off with them ccea wanks, what is the point putting the badger and foxes among the lambs up again when there are other stuff that hasnt been asked, makes no sense to me! Hadnt revised them because of they were up in 2013

    I did the theme question in an inspector calls, and compared Attack to The Castle
    The unseen was okay- bit weird at the end I didn't pick up on Jesus that much tbh but oh well

    I was going to do the war one, but I was absent the day we did it in class so had to copy up my friends notes so I didn't really understand it enough to write a whole essay on it. 16% makes me feel a bit better I suppose, still gutted though

    Yeah poetry is 25% but it's unseen and the comparison together so that's 40 marks + 20 marks for unseen which makes the comparison 16% I think not 100% tho
