    hi so I'm a bit worried,
    I did the conflict section but the one on mametz wood. I compared it to at the border which I thought was hard.
    I wrote about:
    the"woods" which show inhumanity with the machine guns vs the mountains which show alienation and confinement
    the irregular lines vs free verse and what they resemble
    uselessness and disposability of soldiers vs uselessness of border
    I analysed techniques and stuff and I thought the unseen was easy. Unit 1 wasn't bad and I got 39/40 in my coursework. So would it be possible to get an A* by any chance.
    many thanks

    As long as your analysis was consistent and of a high standard, then I see no reason why you couldn't. The points you mentioned are a good mix, and your coursework mark was excellent. I wish you all the best!

    Eugh it did not go too badly, the question on The Crucible was fine, but that Mr Pip passage was just weird :O?

    I will make a separate thread for Conflict poetry, along with predictions
    I know this thread is old but why was the Mr Pip passage weird?

    From what I remember it was about the Foundling Hospital, which is a passage at the very end of the novel, and refers to none of the characters or themes seen throughout the book. It just seemed like an unrepresentative passage to choose.

    Really? You did the 2015 summer paper right?
    I just remember that I had done a sample paragraph for the Founding Hospital and http://filestore.aqa.org.uk/subjects...P-JUN13-CR.PDF the passage for it is in this 2013 AQA paper

    Surely they could not have recycled such a recent question?
