You mean for English or Drama?

Didn't do Drama, lol, but did Othello for English...was really hard because we took our English in Year 10, and we only properly decided that was what we were doing just before Easter, lol, so we had to do our Jane Eyre coursework and Shakespeare in a couple of weeks!

Not studied Crucible, soz...but seen it, was amazing, truly fab.

Yeah, all my drama friends did both "The Crucible" and "A View From The Bridge" - they went to see performances of both of them, if I'm not mistaken.

For english we did Othello and The Glass Menagerie. Othello was pretty good, but we didnt get to see a production of it because its quite obscure. Glass Menag- I was not impressed, no one was come to think of it...

I think it varies from exam board to exam board, but we did a Shakespeare piece of comparing the charactersof Mercuteo and Tybult in ''Romeo and Julliet'' for coursework and John Steinbeck's novel ''Of Mice and Men'' for the Literature exam. We also had to study Seamus Heaney, Gillian Clarke's and pre 1914 poetry from the Anthology also for the Literature exam.

I did The Crucible, and it was the most boring thing I have ever had to sit through in English. It's not too bad to understand, but I found it soooo boring. We also did Romeo and Juliet, which I found much more intresting

Random One - I also did AQA English. It seems strange that you did more books than me - I love reading so would have really enjoyed studying more books, but hopefully I'll get the oppotunity to do more at A-Level. We read extracts for some coursework pieces, but unfortunately ''Of Mice and Men'' (although I think that's a great book, even if we did do it death for the exam, which might have put me off it for life) was the only book we studied in depth.

Cool, I'm going to do more Literature at A level too, so hopefully will be fun!
I have to agree that Of Mice and Men was studied quite thoroughly and it did get pretty boring for me aswell, having to read the book many times over for the exam. Those books I mentioned were done throughout year 10 aswell, so that's probably the reason why... I dunno!
Have fun doing English Literature next year, I know I will!! :p:!!!

What is Of Mice And Men about? Virtually everyone I know did it :confused:

We did Lord Of The Flies Now one of my favourite books! I loved it, especially darling Simon! The play was amazing.

Unforch I didn't enjoy Othello - we only did it because I was like, 'Please, please, please can we do Othello?' 'coz it's one of my favourites, but we had to do the play and our coursework in about 2 weeks so we only skimmed over a few passages, did our coursework for it orally and saw a cack production of it that was completely in the dark. Not fun!
