Hi everyone.

If anyone is currently studying or has studied WJEC AS English Lit and did Carol Ann Duffy/Sheenagh Pugh for the poetry, do you have any tips/websites/revision notes to help with studying Sheenagh Pugh. It is the partner text and we are supposed to be studying it independently - I have no idea where to start.

Any help would be great. Thanks.

Hey - I'm doing the same course D: We did an exam in January and I completely messed it up, so I'm re-sitting.... well I get the results in a few days time (the 10th D but I know it went awfully.

SO, This time I'm typing up each poem - yes each and every poem D: and then once i've typed out the poem I make a list of headings that are the Assessment Objectives for the examination:
A01 Form & Structure: (Then put a bit about the poem's form and structure, its effect, meaning and why Duffy/Pugh have used it)
A01 Language: (The language and its effect and meaning) A02 is basically the meaning of effect of the language, form and structure...
then I put A03 Context: (when Duffy wrote it, any historical event - basically the context of the poem).
and A03 Links with other poems (Duffy & Pugh) - (I list a few poems and why they have links/connections).

Your best practicing essays as well and categorising all poems into themes - I certainly need to, I'm hopeless under time conditions, and generally just panic..... :|

The exam is 23rd May at our school - how are you finding the subject? Have you started coursework - if so, what books are you doing?

Best of Luck,

Jen

My sitting is May 16th, unfortunately I haven't devoted my time to English yet, due to the lack of motivation for creativity. However, i agree with those revision techniques and will be adapting very soon. P.S. How are you ensuring you get the top marks?

I'm quite sure we are not assessed on AO3 context for the poetry. And we're not marked on AO3 comparison for the play.

CRAZY CAT LADY!!!!!

LOL, a not amazing, but pretty good poet though... I find it hard to match her themes to CAD's.
