    How did everyone find the A View from the Bridge and Christmas Carol?

    I thought the extracts were good

    but the Christmas Carol questions were surprising, seeing as June 2012 was VERY similar.

    Did the exam today with An Inspector Calls and Heroes (Higher). Would have been great had I not thrown away the new SPaG marks, meaning the paper was out of 68. Here are my predictions for the grade boundaries:

    Higher:

    A*- 59
    A- 52
    B- 45
    C- 37
    D- 31
    E- 26

    Foundation:

    C- 54
    D- 45
    E- 35
    F- 26
    G- 19

    I think that went well. I seem to be the only person who did the terrifying LotF question. Anyone else out there?

    whats SPag?

    and I did the Piggy one, as it was easier to add some context in.

    For A view from the bridge I did the one on relationship between Beatrice and Eddie as my teacher told us to avoid any actor one

    Either: Francis thinks of himself as a 'fake' hero. What do you think of the way he is presented throughout the novel?

    Or

    'War has a lasting effect on everyone involved in it.' How does Robert Cormier present this in Heroes?

    Can't remember the exact wording but close enough xD

    I did both...

    An Inspector Calls: Extract wasn't great, but it was okay... Essay I did the inspector too

    About a Boy: extract was quite useless, and essay I did friendship
