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

Hi, I'm doing Ella 2 as well tomorrow. I just wanted to clarify the 50/75?
and getting an A. I was under the impression the at 60% you get a C so how does that work for an A.

I checked earlier about the A level scores and this is what was on it for a C, can you let me know where you check these things?

Thanks

I don't know individual grade boundaries for each section, and the grade boundaries do fluctuate each year dependent on how everyone does but last year with both section A and B you needed 50/75 for an A in Ella 1 and 47/75 for an A in Ella 2

Hi, can you let me know where you find out about these scores as I was under the impression that 60% overall gave you a C. I saw somewhere that an A was 80%. I'm not sure about how the grade bounderies change each year etc as I'm doing this course in 4 months from home so have no teacher but tutor that I sent Tma's to for marking and feedback. I have had no help other than that so been reading and re-reading to understand all the terms to use for Ella 2 tomorrow and reading a couple of extracts over and over to try to remember something for part B

Section A; lots of comparison but spent far too much time on it as there was so much to write about

Section B; not enough for all my sons :/ might just be able to scrap a C grade at most

Me too. I think I should've wrote more about stage directions, I only spoke about one and it was really quickly at the end!

Measure for measure was a good question, and section a was pretty cool too, not a bad exam

Oh man section A was just beautiful, I was on a complete roll there. Feeling pretty confident with it. Whereas section B on All My Sons.. eugh. Not the greatest question in the world. I don't believe I did too badly, but it wasn't exactly fantastic

I found all my sons awful. If I didn't use any stage directions/proxemics and sentence structure could I still get a good mark. Also I only did one quote for the other episode

All my sons was really bad, the question was hard to explain thought quotes, because what was said wasn't wasn't what was meant and I just found it difficult :/

Hi does anyone know if the exam was to be written proper essay style as I found that there was not much time to figure everything out and structure also. Not studied in ages so don't really know the form.

I have Ella 3 on 3rd June and I think they give you hal an hour to organise for an essay style.

Any info on how everyone else wrote today will be much appreiciated.

Thanks

I pretty sure you're meant to write in an essay format? What do you mean? I've got Ella 3 as well and when I've practiced the essay they've always been in an essay format...

I wanted to do a Joe Keller and blow my brains out when I saw that All My Sons question, Jesus! The boundaries, I'm hoping, are even lowere than what they usually are!

It was just sooo bad. His 'deceptive nature' wasn't something that was easily explained in that scene. What he was saying was what he meant but the reason behind it was different and you can't really analyse reasoning through speech...I just found it really difficult but I think I did really well on section A so let's just hope

Hi i pointed out that Keller was saying one thing to hide his guilt and then changing the subject when the conversation was getting heated and that Kate helped to change the subject to another topic as they both know Keller was guilty. I wrote about the part where Keller says was Ann sent here to find out something as he knows he is guilty and covers this deception with telling Chris her wants to build him a house etc. He feels that Chris is ashamed of the money from the business and changes subject to hide deception when he notices Chris from the stage directions that he is getting angry. Keller covers this up with the house subject as he does not want to lose Chris and keep him in the business.

I didn't get to practise too many essay styles and felt that I kept writing without splitting in to paragraphs. I hope I don't lose too many marks now.
