    WOW!!!

    The ralph question for LOTF actually came up!!
    .. and the slim one!!

    I wrote the fastest i have ever done in that exam... i was on the last page of the booklet ( hopefully it wasnt all waffle )

    I did the Ralph question for LOTF... it wasnt too bad!! ... although i hadnt read the ending in detail! - i think i averaged about 27/28 though (including spag)

    the OMAM question was very very predictable - im happy i did the foundation paper question on it now... i think the extract bit was alright but part B i put too many vague points down.. grr
    I think the grade boundaries will be the same... or even lower by a mark or 2 for an A*.... since slim is technically a minor character in the novel

    TIME FOR POETRY THEN>>>

    Ive attached PDF files for all the clusters in Moon on the tides...

    they are good!!

    you should know your clusters

    C1 - C and V
    C2-PLace
    C3-conflict
    C4-relationships

    Im doing conflict...

    here are a few links (will update) :

    All of charachter and voice .. and all of conflict analysis :http://freeeschool.blogspot.com.au/

    thats all ive got for now!

    I did the AIC question on Eric, since I thought it was the easiest and I tried to give loads of different interpretations and quotes all the way through to OMAM, although I ran out of time and didn't manage to finish it. Do you think I will still be able to get an A? I heard they mark the your work as a whole, not section by section.

    By the way, you don't get marks for mentioning any similes and metaphors or any type if literary heritage, so if you mentioned it, it's not going to increase your chance ls of getting top marks

    How did you find TKAM? I found it pretty complicated to be honest!
    (Original post by Ryan Mc17)
    Yeah! It was very vague, and the passage Q was very confusing.... Wasn't much analysis
    Yeah completely agree! I felt like there was barely anything to talk about in the passage question

    Just out of interest, did anyone run out of time in the end so they weren't able to go through and check their answers? I ran out of time and not sure how well I've done in achieving SPaG marks (8 in total)...
