    yeah i did Blake and the merchant of venice was pleased with both especially Blake as i was worried about memorising all those poems but picked the religious question god bless those open questions and talked about the clod and the pebble, garden of love, the tiger, the divine image, and shoved in some stuff about Orc and Urizen and his hate of established religion etc, and chose a question in Merchant about justice/ mercy "mercy is enthron'd in the heart of kings" :d

    I wish I had done the Willow Question, was thinking about it last night, as i do after all my exams (must discourage tihs over analysis after exams). It looks like everyone has done Othello stories/tragedy and Blake religion meaning those who get As will have to have fantastic answers due to the heavy competition.

    And as for whoever said about their corny ending to the Blake essay, I feel for you, i ended with saying that his religion was about freedom, love, spirituality and in essence trying to show his contemporaries that what their lives were based on was in fact 'not a holy thing to say'.

    There is however some excellent ideas on this board, it looks as if people are going to do really well. Does anyone else feel as though these exams have gone so fast, seems only yesterday i was retaking my french AS paper in May!
    Boundaries aren't set on the individual question though, are they? But on the paper as a whole I thought.

    No, they aren't set per question but by the paper itself. However, examiners tend to be more generous to candidates who attempted the least answered/more difficult questions mainly because the competition for that question is lower and therefore a good answer is technically an excellent answer due to the lack of comparative pieces.
