    Well, I can remember some key quotes, but I haven't actually learnt them yet, I'm going to remember like 2 for each character. Depends if in the scene they're portrayed as good or bad people tbh

    ah brilliant thank you! this is going to sound really silly but what do you mean by structure? like a plan for how to construct essays?
    Like talk about whether it's poetry or prose, and adjacency pairs, dominant speaker and agenda setter, that's all I do for structure

    Reading the book, key quotes, layout of my essay etc, I don't really know how I'm meant to revise

    I thought the question was a treat, i portrayed Stella to be confused and guilty, i structured the letter to keep swapping between her guilt and regret for sending Blanche away and then the fact she actually did the right thing with everyone being much happier with Blanche's departure. It wasnt the best question but it sure wasnt the worst, just hope we all get good marks ey!

    I too thought that the question was a good question as it could have been a lot worse, I did basically what you did

    I did exactly the same thing, had Stell acting as though she did the right thing but felt really guilty, I had trouble trying to sound like her though :/

    Hey guys it went alright. Explained earlier in thread situation with school so would be content to just get a C () and then avoid the 2nd year like a plague. Grade boundaries hopefully just below 50 on each paper. They've been like 50 out of 75 for both papers (i.e. ELLA1 and ELLA2) for the past couple of years. Fingers crossed and good luck to everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!

    I'm doing those too, but measure for measure for ELLA 2! I'm so scared tomorrow, see our teacher for kite runner left over 2 months ago, and from September till February, all we did for kite runner was analyse 3 random scenes in the play. So there's no chance of me passing that! ARGHHH I was hoping for an A but i'm probably gonna get a C tomorrow. I can get an A in ELLA 2 which hopefully would go to a B which I wouldn't be unhappy about. But i'm not ready for tomorrow

    The exam was OK. Could have been much mjuch harder. Kite Runner for production task and Streetcar from analytical question!1
