    Ok, so for A2 English Lit coursework on OCR we are doing Carol Ann Duffy, Charles Bukowski & Angela Carter and the question is about gender roles and stereotypes. But I don't have a clue about what to write in the introduction, any help would be appreciated!
    Thanks

    No worries, thanks anyway.
    We started in September, but just finished reading the material at the end of term, so we are starting the coursework now.
    We have 2 teachers, one does coursework and the other does exam so we're actually doing them at the same time!

    Oh that makes sense . We had to read our chosen coursework texts through the summer!

    What are your exam texts by the way?

    I did this coursework last year...maybe you could introduce the texts by comparing and contrasting them? If there's a unifying theme then you could mention that, but if there are important differences then you should maybe discuss those too. If the Chief Examiner's report is available from last year, I'd definitely look at that!
    Good luck!

    We're using the book- The Bloody Chamber, but i've chosen to use The Tiger's Bride, Puss-In-Boots and Lady of the House of Love!
    Any help would be appreciated

    The mark scheme's pretty vague, if I remember correctly! This page is really helpful though. It shows you the mark schemes for 2009 and 2010, plus loads of other documents that you might find useful.
