    Time is key; analepsis is used to tell the story of Gatsby's past. Digressions; tense atmospheres; reference to the past being able to be undone.

    Little on place - mainly just Cody's yacht and Lake Superior symbolises Gatsby's ambition.

    Character - Gatsby's love and protective tone towards Daisy; Daisy's sass (at Tom) and disatisfaction with the party (huge as Gatsby had the parties and spent millions all for Daisy); Sloanes - represent old money and new money divide; Tom is grouchy and rude towards Gatsby.

    Voices: Daisy's voice - mentions specifically at the end of the chapter. Tom and Gatsby's exchange is quite sharp - their conflict. Nick's narrative voice - Nick manipulates time deliberately (this is a novel about writing a novel).

    P.O.V: largely Nick's but Gatsby reveals things to us too.

    Destination: implied that things may go wrong; foreshadowing of a feud between Gatsby and Tom, which comes in Chapter 7.

    Hello, everyone.

    I am gonna have to be 'that guy' and tell you all that you need to go to bed! This is an early exam and cramming won't do much for you. Get some rest.

    Best of luck to you all,

    I've absolutely failed, rip me tomorrow

    I'm copying down everything on one paper, my only hope is chapter 6 coming up in section a the first question on great gatsby, and a nice easy 2nd question.

    Then section B, i'm winging it with the poems i know the most from robert frost and auden; and also winging it with the road

    I'm absolutely ****ed

    I'm taking this exam just for the hell of it - fun, maybe- and I have literally no idea what texts I'm taking in... so unprepared is an understatement.

    Gatsby, probably Gatsby and Rime.

    According to some examiners reports, you can talk about the same as the question is normally related. You can't really use the same content as you are marked on AO1, AO3 and AO4, so I don't see why it would be a problem

    You can use the same one as long as it answers the question but don't use all the same information - bad move.

    Good morning,

    I wish every single one of you the very best of luck. You can do this. Even those of you who haven't really prepared - you've had a year longer to let this all wash over you. You know it. Just go in, relax, answer the question and stay focused.

    Remember:

    Section A -

    (a) 30 minutes - AO1 & AO2 - 1 text as given.
    (b) 30 minutes - AO1, AO3 & AO4 - At least 2 unless specified otherwise in the question.

    Section B (AO1, AO2, AO3) -

    1. One Hour - The three texts you DIDN'T do in Section A; 2 paragraphs on each; at least 2 poems, if you do an anothology.
