    i've seen a thread but it seems like not many people are doing these texts. unfortunately, i don't think repression will come up as it was already in the june or January exam

    I did Jane Eyre, I picked the "mystery novel" question, what about you?

    For poetry I did Yeats, they chose such a hard poem, it was written by him in like 1919/1920 and under the pressure of the exam I stupidly thought this was during WW1 so I wrote loads about that Does anyone know if that will significantly affect my answer, provided I answered the question well?

    Yeah same I wrote about sexual oppression and governess as malevolent force etc.. It was a bit dodgy but I think boundaries will be low cause many found it hard.
    For the poetry what did you link to? I linked I felt a Funeral and it was it death only cause I knew them haha. What did u write about them?

    I flopped the poetry section. i linked it to because i could not stop for death and i said that the poem is a reflection of her personal life and emotional torment and she experienced the death of her loved ones which is why she was depressed and wrote about death. i bull****ted all the through. what did you get in the coursework? x

    I also picked the ''mystery novel' question. At first I chose the first one but then soon after starting my introduction I decided to do the second one.
    I didn't finish it though. I spent too much time on Section A. Ah well, I wrote enough (2 pages and a half) but with no conclusion (no time).

    General consensus being Emily Dickinson question was hard?! I found it extremely hard seen as the one poem I did'nt like and study much for came up!! Reckon boundaries will be low?? my answer was pathetic I just spoke a load of bullsh*t and probably loads of grammar errors. Last year it was 40 for a C and like 53 for an A!!hopefully will drop this year!!!

    Loads of people found this exam. I come from a sixth Form where English pass level is 98% (A-C) so the grade boundaries should be low

    Hi, do any of you remember what was the Emily Dickinson question for June 2013 please? I can see on the examiner report that it was on 'one need not be a chamber' but what were you supposed to discuss?
