i was doing malfi. i didnt really like the questions much, and only wrote about 8 pages in the end, but i guess i'll be fine because i'm ridiculously concise anyway, so i can get away with it i think, and i only needed something silly like 30/120 UMS...
anyway, i did the first context question, because i thought i knew that stuff better in terms of context; id love to write about deceit and secrecy because bosola is the most awesome character in the play, but i couldnt see many ways to get AO5 out of it, whereas there were loads of things to draw out of the first. on the second point, well, i just wrote about the differences and similarities between oda (was that her name) and the duchess and their predicaments, quite cold and analytical i guess, but i wasnt all that excited by the question so i figured it would be the easiest route...
i guess im just glad i wasnt going into that exam needing to pick up lots of marks...

Lovely to find fellow WJECerz, I was wondering if anybody had any good religious quotations to display the negative attitudes of men during the Jacobean time.
It's for my synoptic paper on Duchess of Malfi.
I'm doing the WJEC Metaphysical poets exam on the 3rd of June and wondered if anyone can give some tips about how to write an answer.
I've looked on the WJEC site but they don't seem to have examples of past answers like the AQA site does. My tutor has shown us some past questions but hasn't gone in to how to answer them exactly.
I'm not sure whether I should be writing mostly about the theme of the question and just reference a few poems to back up my points, or if I need to really go into detail and analyse my chosen poems.
If I knew how to get good marks on this I'd be a lot more confident about the exam.
