    So how did everyone find it?

    What questions did you do? What parts did you study?

    I do Chaucer and Our Countrys Good, i didn't think it went too badly, the questions could have been a lot worse! There was one manageable question for each, which everyone that i spoke to seemed to do!

    Yeah...I thought the questions could've been worse as well. They weren't brilliant but they weren't as difficult as in some of my other exams. I did Question A for Philip Larkin...even though I hadn't studied the poem specified, although I got into it quite well...perhaps a little too well as I spent an hour and 15minutes on it, and then chose Question B for Duchess of Malfi, although I thought that was a bit of a weird question because it was more opinion-based rather then requiring actual textual analysis.

    Hope everyone did alright!

    Yeah I do The Tempest (although I'm confused as to how it was "obvious"!?) and Translations by Brian Friel. How about you?

    No, not everyone does The Tempest. There are around 4 or 5 options. The Tempest is just compulsory for our option which is "Broken Communication".
    Other options include the "Comic Perspective" which is Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice and Emma and another one. Another one is something social and uses Hard Times and North and South and another one. There's a poetry option too.

    OIC. I just assumed that everyone did The tempest and something else.
