    Was the audience for the last question people pf pur age because it said aboht parents and teachers. Also were you supposed to write formally or make it friendly and engaging as well as slighty colloquial?
    There was no audience really, you could choose since it was a website.

    God, I am so glad Touching the Void came! And yeah, the last question wasn't so hard... I would've filled all pages instead of just 4.

    This is the problem.... Everyone knows Touching the Void so well that it's not even special to know things in it if you get what I mean. Grade Boundaries will be higher etc. :L

    I didn't hate the exam, but I struggled to finish reasonably well. I think Section B went a bit chaotic for me.

    Meh. I'm glad that English is over and done with now. I don't ever have to bother with stupid essays like those again! (I hopefully can doubt that I won't have to resit, but yeah. Just saying. :P)

    Also, I did predict that Touching The Void would come up. The respect question was surprising... but wrote a ton for it in 45 minutes. Section A was actually an okay text. It was easy to answer that mining question as well - all in one paragraph, basically. The 12 marker... nearly filled up all the space, but just concluded and moved on. Section B was really waffle and I overran talking about Joe. I had to rush Simon + conclusion to get to the help question or I wouldn't have done Section C well.

    I'm obviously wishing for an A*, but I did get good coursework and stuff (might pull my mark up a bit). But if I got an A, I wouldn't cry. Anything less and I'd kind of be surprised to be honest - I don't think I did too badly. :\

    Anyway, just glad English is finally done (probably. 99.99% done. :P depends on results day.)

    When it says IN YOUR OWN WORDS...what does this actually mean?...cause I referred to to text and stuff. But I basically said that Larwood wants to be considered a part of society...that he is not different from the rest and he is proud of his normalised position. However, he does lead a more 'privileged' life within the mine as his father's friends know his father and would therefore not 'touch' him. I also said that the life of him in the mine was physically demanding, and that he suffered from it. We also get an idea of his experience as a miner, highlighted form the alliteration of 'descending from daylight to darkness', emphasising his experience as a miner and how he knows the routine well. AM I ON TRACK ANYONE???!!!!

    Did anyone liken Larwood as if, almost, he possessed divine qualities and characteristics...as there are loads of references to this?

    I'm surprised Climate change has not come up yet!

    WAY to much space for In your own words question - unseen was awful and boring as f***
    The only could points i had was the change from "The Old Man" to "A Great Man" near the end; writer personalises after meeting first hand.

    Also put about how in the past, there was always a "voice" -- an echo; cheering for him. But in the present, there is only an echo of "brooms" showing how Larwood has left his legacy, and now it's time for someone else to take over.

    Touching the void question was far too vague and the writing ones were meh.
