Hello, I'm new to TSR so sorry if this post goes wrong. Basically there's something that's really been bothering me. On the 16th of May I had an english lit exam which is with the exam board AQA. For the poetry section we had to do the Feminine Gospels by Carol Ann Duffy. So basically there was an option of 2 questions and I chose the first one which was a statement that critics had given and we had to argue it. I'm sorry I can't remember exactly what the quote was, if anyone here did the exam and can remember the quote I would be grateful if you could post it.

Sorry this is turning out to be so long but I misinterpreted the question according to my classmates. Would I get any marks for what I wrote? I talked about language, structure and form throughout and I thought it would have been an okay-ish piece if I hadn't misinterpreted the question.

It's impossible to say with certainty, but I've read from examiner reports that they appreciate individuality in responses so just because you interpreted the question differently doesn't necessarily mean that your answer is invalid. In fact, it could be that they really enjoyed your unique perspective.

Ah, okay. Thank you. When I asked my classmates they said that we had to talk about poems were Carol Ann Duffy downplays the real issues presented in the Feminine Gospels. But I wrote about poems in which women are portrayed negatively and then I contrasted it with poems that challenge the negative stereotypes of women. So I did it completely wrong?
