    Hope the questions are easy on Friday. I couldn't even revise English today because I have Geography tomorrow! Which books are you doing on Friday?
    AIC and Heroes.
    AIC I am hoping for Sheila since she hasn't come up yet and Heroes perhaps a theme based question on forgiveness or war.

    Yeah their unseen poetry is harsh in my opinion and the wording of questions sometimes is seen as confusing.
    But this exam paper is better compared to old ones i.e past papers.
    Yeah but yesterday I done a past paper, I think it was the one from 2012 and the poems were actually good. It was easy to understand. It was the poems about that talks about the babies' death. I actually wished that it came up in our exam.

    same! we got a practice exam question, I think it was poems about the homeless/outcasts from society and I just got it and could interpret everything, but this just left me blank! Hopefully we both get a really nice examiner haha
    Yeah it was exacly that one! And I've done one which was said to be 'the hardest it could get', although that was not true...

    I don't think war will come up because on the specimen paper the question was about the lasting effects of war

    Yes I did! I was wondering where are the bullet points. They did this for the first time.

    Please can you msg me all your notes on themes and characters of Heroes, I will be very greatful! Firstly by giving you reps and thanking you for saving my grade!
    I honestly would but I've only done my AIC quotes and stuff. But I feel your desperation but honestly if you make your quotes and notes, it will stick 100 times better than if I was to give you my notes. Good luck though!

    I cry, then forgiveness is the next best thing I guess, or maybe francis.

    what did you say about candy? I spoke about him being nice even though he's a physical wreck, how hes so low on the hierarchy as eve curleys wife insults him, how hes prepared to offer everything for the dream, how bitter he becomes after the dream and the cycle he represents( he starts off calling curleys wife a tart and ends in the same way, suggesting lifenon the ranch is a cycle, no escape)
    That is basically what I wrote. I wrote how he presents discrimination in society e.g. how he dises Curley's Wife, even after her death. I also wrote about the importance of friendship. But other than that I wrote the same as you

    Yes I did! I was wondering where are the bullet points. They did this for the first time.

    At first I thought they did it by accident like a printing error, but then half way through I thought maybe they wanted us to answer it differently..?

    Yeah me too strangely, i'm worried sick that exam is just going to ask really crappy questions on stuff I have no recollection on. My CA was an A* which is 25% which should hopefully boost my grade a little. How's yours?
