    RUAE was about Idina Menzel, Frozen and Disney.

    And MacCaig was 'Sounds of the Day.'

    Thanks 'Memorial' came up for higher- I was just interested if it was the same poem in both (like last year both higher and N5 were 'Visiting Hour' ). Hope it went well

    Well, I didn't find the close reading too bad, the contrast question was weird because, to me, there was no contrast, lmao.

    Set text was okay, however, I referenced from another part of the story when it said reference from the extract for the eight marker.

    The essay, I have no idea how that went. The question we had was so vague - drama, two - and I just threw everything relevant down on paper and walked the reader through the story with analysis.

    I mean, I hope I did well and I don't have to rely too much on the folio to get that A.
    I did the contrast between the tone of the two paragraphs, the first one was serious and the second was humorous.

    I'm a bit worried about the second close reading question. I did a list but I'm not sure two things counts as a list! I originally did word choice for stratospheric but then I panicked thinking it was a metaphor and I didn't know if I would get the marks so I just left it.

    The Scottish Text was terrible, couldn't get any worse than Sounds of the Day. I linked it with Aunt Julia but I'm not sure I'll get the marks, I did "marvellously" and said he had strong feelings of awe but I doubt they'll take that.

    The essay couldn't have been better, I did the same quotes from the prelim and I got a really good mark for that.

    I just hope my folio can make up for that horrendous Scottish Text, I don't have a clue how they mark folios though

    So glad English is over! Close reading was okay but the last 2 questions were the hardest! For the set text I was doing Iain critchon smith and the story was the painter! The essay questions were good though!

    yeah, maybe

    my cousin said that, for his maths exam a few years ago, the pass mark was lowered to 34% or something, and everything else was adjusted like that too
    iirc he said that the mark for an A was 50-something percent

    I completely messed up question 8 of the close reading.

    I was so happy about Originally coming up. That one was the poem I wanted!

    And I got the essay question I wanted too. I did question 3, the key moment one on 'Of Mice and Men'

    I think I might get a B

    Sounds of the Day was the set poem for MacCaig. I was NOT expecting that.

    RUAE was an article about Idina Menzel and Frozen.

    i think i mentioned that the brothers were crying, and i said something about the car

    originally was my weakest poem, but wasn't the "red room which fell through the fields" supposed to convey that she was a child, i.e. a car from the point of view of a child?
