    You got a mark for your coursework draft? That isn't allowed! We got told by our teachers that the exam board specifically state there should be no direct comment made on the coursework feedback, and only general stuff!

    For othello, it was something about a heroic figure! But i hated it so much!!
    What was your q for death of a salesman,
    mine was about time and memory emphasising tragedy! I have to give my final draft in soon: can you give me some tips on this please? :L As at the moment, it's around a band 4 (i predict)

    My fav is enduring love, you?
    it's not allowed, but we got told anyway :mmm:

    for DOAS i did summat on tragic hero

    tips: my new teacher used to mark the exams, and she said:

    ALWAYS critisise your own points
    ALWAYS have a very good intro - make statements and expand
    ALWAYS keep refering to context and stage directions

    and you should be fine :bigsmile:


    and my fave is rosetti poetry (girl power!)

    Ahhh I'm doing the same spec as you, I haven't criticised my points, I can't see where it says you do in the mark scheme :confused:

    Oh and @ the thread starter, are you planning on doing it by yourself at home? If so I know ICS do that spec and the folder they give you is quite useful. However, you may not need it if you know what your doing already

    Criticism on points is to do with AO3. So in other words, alternative interpretations (however one may view this as...). And an evaluation in interpretations is necessary for the top band marks.
