    Yep I did, think I did pretty well on that question, found the first Q a bit tougher though although it still wasn't all that bad.

    What did you put for the second question?
    I thought it was alright- but i thought the second q was a bit wierd...
    I started off talking about how women dont get into senior job positions, etc, which was all good. I then realised I had ages left, so I started talking about woman in afghanistan having to wear those burkha things... didnt really know what I was talking about so i think it was a bit crap.

    Hurricane was the ONE poem of the eight that I wasn't sure on and, knowing my luck, it came up. I'm happy english GCSEs are over now though. I think I only have 6/7 exams left now.

    I did Hurricane and Presents from my Aunts. Had loads to say. Then did nightmare world. Was pretty depressing- hope get morbid examiner...
    You'd be surprised about how cheap schools can be. If we didn't buy our own copy of To Kill A Mock we got one with someone elses notes it- whether pages were missing or not.

    I did hurricane hits england and unrelated incidents.. i talked about how they were both sorta patriotic about their cultures and where they came from. Do guys rekon it was a good choice... i rekon i did some good analysing..

    And i chose describing a nighmare.... as i had been taught describing techniques, but when i saw the question i was like ...." Wooah wht the hel!"
    But i ended up thinking of writing about the loss of my vision...(im not blind)... i cudnt think of anythin else so went out of the ordinary .... quite difficult... but plp say different can earn u marks ,,

    Would be great 2 know wht u think..

    I think my nightmare world went way too much like a story, it was a story basically. Do you it matters? after all, it still included alot of describing in it.
    And i did 'hurricane' and 'presants from my aunts'......think it went pretty bad

    We were given blank ones for the exam but told we couldn't write in. Apparently this is because they're sending them back. It IS cheap isn't it....
