    I'm doing Dr Faustus!!
    Yaay!, what section do you think will come up for section A this year?
    And what's your section B concept like? I've taken influence on an Artaudian concept of Dr Faustus, think they're so much to explore and do with the material.

    I'm sure I heard you just write it our as notes but not a proper paragraph. You pretend its not a paragraph when it is.

    Well I messed up the timing for that. decided to do section C first spent more than an hour...then did section A, and went over time for that...And then I had 35 minutes to do section B 😱 but I actually managed to finish everything at the end. Chucked in a tone of examples, OPC and techniques. Hopefully I got a high B/A

    I didn't use many examples in my section B ad C, I'd say I used 3 per point made; do you think I'll be penalised for that?

    Thing is, it's not about how many you put in, it's all about... have you described them in enough detail that the examiner will be able to visualise it, and have you analysed it. for section B, I talked about whole scenes for my example so I can gave the examiner a real visual view (and put in illustrations) of what my staging concept is going to be like. e.g. I do Dr Faustus, so I spoke about The 7 deadly sins scene and all the good and evil angel scenes.

    same thing for section C, its how you use the example and analyse the OPC and audience response from it that counts.

    Okay I get you, thanks very much. I think I described it and I hope I can get an A/B on the paper so I can achieve an overall
