    How much emphasis do we need to put on quoting critics? We did a few critical approaches but our teacher never mentioned quoting directly. :s

    So glad the exam is in the afternoon, I seem to have misplaced my Blake anthology too...

    Ok, so more emphasis on critics for Othello, and more contextual info for Blake, excellent!

    I so desperately want it to be about Emilia, she's easily the best character to talk about...after Iago!

    Just a quickie, one of my teachers said we are allowed to staple additional pages to our copy of the text to rtake into the exam with us, the other said we can only write note on the side of the text, with no additional pages, can anyone clarify which is correct as I don't want to be disqualified from the exam, but equally don't want to miss out on the opportunity to go in to it more so prepared with extra notes.

    Oh and good luck everyone

    We've been told for edexcel no additional pages, just in the copy, and no full sentences just notes. Check the specfication on the exam board website though it should say.

    Depends how strict they are at your school. we've been warned and they'll probably do a random few on the day - if they find it before hand u wont be disqualified, just wont be allowed to take it in. And if u get really unlucky and someone comes from the board they might, but that really is rare.

    We've just been encouraged not to make many notes at all- do essays from blank copies to not waste time.

    Not that mine hasn't got quite a few notes in lol.

    I did the first question. I'm just not a big fan of theme questions, it's so ambiguous you could just rabbit on about anything.. but maybe that's a good thing! The more I think about it, I think maybe I did ok. The other question I did (Duffy) was a godsend so that should help
