    Oh my god! You lot all used so many themes and stuff. The only two themes I really mentioned were Comrardeship and Death. I found it hard to compare the 3 (on 1b) has they were from completely different genres of literature. I managed to compare C to Journey's End, I mentioned Birdsong and Regeneration for D and I put in loads about poem in E.

    I didn't really like 1a that much. All the extracts were so long! I was quite happy though when Owen came up as I already knew so much about his poems and so I just rattled off a whole load of quotes from him and I mentioned some things from Sassoon and Rosenberg.

    I think I got more wider reading into my conclusion as I just wrote down a whole load of poems and quotes and somehow I tried to link them to the extracts lol

    Thanks to you Hassan I think I got some marks - Like I mentioned the obvious stuff like rhyme scheme and layout of poems and stuff which I think would've picked me up a few marks I lost in the summer.

    You're doing Lyrical Ballads Alexandra? I'm doing Hamlet and John Clare lol. The worst thing about that exam is that on Wednesday I have a MAths exam, and then I have the Hamlet in the morning and then a Geography in the afternoon :eek: lol?

    How did you guys conclude 1b? I didn't really know what to write.

    Lol really? Untypical seems to be a word. It's not underlined in Microsoft Word when I type it lol.

    I didn't really have much time so I wrote the basic conclusion I usually always write.

    "In conclusion all these extracts are in their own way typical of writing from and about the First World War when you take the gender of the writer and time it was written into account." If I had more time I would've breifly compared them a bit more in the conclusion but I don't think it'll matter too much since I did it in detail in the previous paragraphs.

    Untypical isn't a word, not appropriate for exams anyway, atypical is.

    What do you mean? No, wider reading is only needed in part B so for AO5ii it can't be carried across from the other part.

    Oh shoot. =[ Ah well I only said it once. Hopefully it shouldn't be too much of a problem.

    I just meant do they check more on the quality or quantity of your wider reading.

    Haha okay, well just for future reference that's not what 'quantative' means...not directly anyway. When I said AO3 was quantative I meant it can be fulfilled fully by one paper and none by the other, or evenly spread across both.

    And, they will check both the quality of close reading and analysis as well as the scope of your wider reading.
