    But then again, you shouldn't try to be unconventional to the point of wrong because that will get you low marks. Make sure that you can back up your arguments by at least 2 examples, otherwise all will go to the dogs.

    You could still mention points that aren't 100% coventional but mention that you realise that it's not the usual interpretation. that gives you pts for interpretations and realising that your own opinion isn't everything.
