    They're far less harsh in June than they are in January!
    So I've heard, I just hope the examiner is marking mine on one of their good days Are you getting yourself all set up for Friday's exam now?

    For The Illusionist, first of all set out the scenario and explain what is going on in the passage, in terms of answering the questions, remember it's all about how you identify methods and keep relating it back to the question.

    I'm doing AS for the first time. I've studied The Great Gatsby and Montague and Heaney poetry and just wonder does anyone have any tips for revision? I'm thinking of learning off essays in relation to possible themes for poetry particularly authority as my teachers think it may come up? and then just quotes for characters and themes for Gatsby? Thanks

    Download the markschemes from previous years, they'll give you a good idea of what the examiners like to see (and what they don't care about). And I know different people are different, but learning off entire essays sounds really hard! I make lists of key terms and mini quotations and try to learn those.

    Thank you so much! I know but I am quite a slow writer and learning the essays means I can just start writing, really its just to try and save some time!

    So what did everyone think of their friday paper?

    I done Jane Eyre/Wide Sargasso Sea which was the "key texts of the feminist movement" question

    and the Illusionist was 'the relationship between Stella and her family' question.

    I had Huckleberry Finn/The Bluest Eye and it wanted to know about the books' relevance to adults and the nature of childhood. It did not go well :stupid:

    I did the JE/WSS and Illusionist questions, could have hugged the examiner when I saw the 'Feminist Novel' question as our teacher predicted that would come up and I knew it to a tee, the Illusionist extract wasn't brilliant but wasn't awful either
