    I loved the how far do you agree

    After doing 32 mark essays for history about "to what extent..." I.think I answered it fairly well
    The thing is, I love doing questions like that for History, RE, etc, but I guess it just threw me because I wasn't expecting one for English.

    I did it. I bloody despise Piggy. The extract was easy I thought.
    I knew I wasn't the only one! I talked about the deaths of Piggy and Simon and moved on to the big allegory of the novel. I mainly focused on that weird realisation when you realise that our world is as bad as the island.

    I did the actor one and actually found it pretty good.

    Just mention what Alferi does and feels, etc; feels that you should settle for half. Then just add, the actor should demonstrate that Alferi feels that charcters should settle for half to prevent suffering etc. I thought it wasnt too bad, I had more to say on Alferi then the B and Eddie anyway
    Yeah I done the Alfieri one aswell I found it so much easier as you can say that he was a chorus,a bridge, the theme of justice and also relate him to a Greek play or something like that

    Pretty much the same as I did and I just shoved a load of historical context in there.

    Yeah didn't have too much to say on the about a boy extract, but had too much to say for the inspector calls extract, I opted for the Inspecter Goole question and the marcus empathy, don't know how it went, if I had known the themes of about a boy bettter i would definitely have done the friendship essay, but was left with no choice really.
    Fair enough

    Inspector calls extract I cut down all into a page!

    Aah, that sucks! I didn't know anything so sid the themes

    Indeed! I mentioned;

    * How the actor needs to show that he is both respected and feared by the Italian community
    * How he understands Eddie but has to inform him that the law is not intrsted
    * That he understands the limits of the law ("only god makes justice") and that sometimes the law needs to be broken to uphold justice.
    * That he knows there's other times of justice eg natural justice
    * He allows the charcters to develop, displaying Eddie to be a regular guy, so it makes it more dramatic later on.
    * How its better to settle for half rather then achieve full vindication

    Sound about right? Think I wrote a bit more, but I cant remember it all!
    * How he knows that its better to settle for half

    I did! Quite happy with the extract question as it's one of my favourite parts of the book and I did the Tommy question. Overall reasonably nice questions, not the best I've ever written but think it was alright. What did you think?

    What did everyone do for the Inspector question? I talked about how he's authoritative, controlling and manipulating, referred to being Priestley's mouthpiece-linked with social responsibility ect. And for About A Boy friendship question I did about a page on friendship, a page on mental health and half on loneliness (small hand writing) how did everyone find it??

    Pretty much the same as I did and I just shoved a load of historical context in there.
    I basically just talked about:
    1) him being an outcast (assmar/fatty/dialetc)
    2) no one listens to him
    3) about him being the pig (sow)
    4) his death - significance
    5) conclusion - manly talked about the different ideologies, put in a bit about the war and the fact that the strong oppress and overpower the weak,

    I loved the extract ! So happy a mood and atmosphere came up gave me about ten extra minutes for the 20 marker ! I did the friendship question , mine seemed to be jumping everywhere ! Not the best but probably be fine if I get full marks on the extract.

    We were talking about the "terrifying" question not Piggy

    This may be a silly question but how many pages was the booklet again? As it said at the front but I've forgotten. Insignificant but was wondering as I had to go onto my second booklet.
