    Aha I'm glad! To be honest, I prefer unseen poetry than the book question! I feel as if I've done sooo many work on poetry over the few years that I've become used to analysing them! But nonetheless, I haven't done ANY preparation for the unseen poetry or the JE question. The only revision I've done is asking you questions on here! . But in a few hours, I'm gonna start revising properly and just decide on some quotes and read the revision guide - or ask you more questions ! At the moment I'm revising Physics and Geography!

    I'd be happy with a B or A grade for tomorrow! I'm guessing you're not going any lower than an A*? xD
    Ask me all the questions you need- it's actually really helpful for me as well! You have to help me with poetry I need all the help possible haha
    My coursework was an A* but my teacher predicted me a B for the exam, so really I would just like to prove her wrong I am also hoping to take it for A level so I need to do well
    Good luck for Physics and Geography- are you doing triple science?

    Ahh good and thanks! My teacher predicted me an A* but I've just don't feel motivated or enthusiastic about English anymore and I'm probably gonna let him down! My main focus is on science - I want to get all A* and yes I am doing triple science, are you doing triple too?

    For unseen poetry, all I literally do is just talk about contrast/juxtaposition and just go deep. I'm not a really good helper so I can hardly help unfortunately! . Main thing is just go DEEEEP and just focus on connotations of key words! But yeah, thanks for all the help!

    I think you'll probably get the A*, you seem to be really smart! Me? Noo way science is my enemy, I just hope for a B or C. Good luck for it, I hope you get really good marks in all of them!

    Yes, that's what most people say I'll probably end up making up something that has nothing to do with the writer's original purpose but that's just the whole point of English I guess.

    Aha thanks! *I'm only smart in science - with the rest, I completely SUCK* If you work hard enough, you'll defo get that B grade and thank you!!

    Yeah that's the thing was English - there's hardly any wrong answers! We should just focus on picking out the write quotes and we'll be good!! I wish you all the best for tomorrow!!

    I doubt that but science is a great subject to be smart at so you're really lucky! I have been preparing for science (and history) the longest out of all my subjects so hopefully it will pay off

    Yeah true, and make sure to analyse just one word of the quotation in more detail- and offer multiple interpretations. Hopefully it should be fine, I'm so nervous Thank you and good luck to you as well, feel free to ask if you have any more questions

    Hey again! I was just wondering on the amount of time you're going to be spending on each question? My teacher always stresses how important it is to use a certain amount of time on each section. How much time will you be spending on annotating, analysis, JE and etc....?

    I am very pleased with how it went- although it wasn't easy. I chose to do the time one but regretted it near the end of the question :/ ah well, it's over now.

    Was told by my teacher afterward that the poem was about a prostitute luring a man into her bed? Safe to say I didn't write that- let's hope the examiners enjoy imaginative interpretation.

    The Character question was a relief to be honest. I kinda ran out of time so could not really comment on Hibberts reluctance to join the rest of the soldiers up in the trenches but I am pretty happy with how it went. Unseen poetry was tough- I thought the lady really loved the fox and used supernatural powers to gain red fur lol. Well hopefully the examiners can credit some of my points.Does anybody know the grade boundaries for an A or B?

    Maaaaan, I think I secured a B at max! I didn't write anything about form and structure for the Lady and Fox - I mentioned stuff about her transforming into a fox at the end of the poem!

    For Hibbert, I had the right ideas - him and stanhopes beef up & his behaviour at the dinner party or w/e. BUT I CAN'T BELIEVE I FORGOT TO INCLUDE THE QUOTE ABOUT WORMS!!!!! I'm so mad man!!! Oh well I guess!

    How about you? I bet you found it super easy :P
