Anyone have any idea what the questions might be for question A in the AS exam?, has anyone's teacher predicted what might come up?

I'm exactly the same! so anxious about it! Really hoping for a question on set design, but there's been years where it hasn't came up! For 1B we do The Shadow of a Gunman! it's not so bad! How many plays have you made notes on for 1A?

Seriously? You want set design to come up? I'm the opposite I hope they give two acting questions for 1B hahaha

3 so far, but i'm frantically trying to learn quotes because they help a lot ? Also learning the different genres, styles and synopsis!
Are your notes detailed? Because my teacher is new and not sure what the notes should look like i'm afraid they're too essay styled and not note form

Yeah, as long as there's at least one set design question in 1A i'll be happy!, The only thing I'm worried about in 1B is my timing to be honest!
My notes for 1A are detailed but in note form, for each I have one side of notes and then another with diagrams on it. Quotes depend on the style of question you do, that's why I like design more in 1A!

not too bad non naturalistic set design in 1A was just what I was looking for! 1B could have been better though :/ The characters that came up, I hadn't revised for that much! what about you?

Yeah same tbh I did question 4 on acting for 1A and then they give the worst possible characters for section 1B let's hope the grade boundaries are low! Haha

Hey, I did the exam too! I picked Q4 for the live theatre rather reluctantly, as it was the best question out of the others for me, however, I had to really twist the meaning of "thrill" to write the essay for the plays I had prepared... so it didn't go great. For the second exam, I also wrote about Shadow of a Gunman: I wrote about Mrs Grigson and think that went pretty well (certainly a lot better than the live theatre anyways!) as it was something I hoped would come up. So yeah, what sort of mark do you think would be an A and a B etc.? I thought they were tougher questions than usual...
So how'd you guys get on??
