    ditto

    same texts and everything. not having read the handmaid's tale (yet), i bought an advanced york notes which i spotted by chance in my local book shop. not having read them yet, i can't really pass judgement lol.

    it's quite cool how the questions are written so that they cover most elements of satire in a general way, and you can bring in as much external reading as you want. as long as it's connected with satire.

    I'm worried about the 'Unseen' question...analysing and writing an essay on an extract of poetry/novel/play that I've never seen before in exam conditions - never gonna happen!

    That is so annoying im doin OCR English too, for our synoptic we are doing post-1945 drama. Satire would be so much better because I read the odd few books but I have never picked up and read a play! So have much less further reading to bring in. Anyone else doing this module?
