    How were the Literature exams people? (If you're permitted to talk about them) I liked the AQA questions but I wish I wrote more, screw AQA's timing!
    Absolute gift of a question on The Tempest about sympathising with Caliban and my short stories question was okay but the poetry passage question was on a horrible poem overall I think it was okay though (CIE)

    I don't think I even answered the question. It was too difficult to link the idea of the hibiscus and rebellions. :/

    She thought it was an afternoon exam. Her mum and her went to a cafe beforehand before the exam, so no one answered the house phones... And mobile number didn't work because battery died...

    She was tearing up and was on the verge of breaking down, felt so bad

    I find that quite weird too tbh, surely that's one of the first things you'd want to learn? What exactly the book title symbolises...

    I'd probably be devastated in that situation, but when you really think about it, no A-level exams in January means you're completely free to just take it in January :holmes: unless they abolished Jan exams for GCSEs too? Though I don't think they did.

    No I don't think they did...I'm so glad I was able to do mine, but I wonder what A-levels will be like next year...just in summer is so perfect for my hayfever, urgh. :mad:

    We did brief stuff on it and it wasn't linked to personal/ political rebellion! :/
