I feel exactly the same way! It's my last exam so it just feels like everything rests on how well I do in this one... :cry: Good luck, though! I'm sure you'll be fine

I hope this exam is on anything but setting. But saying that now I've probably jinxed myself :/
I agree, I would hate to get a question on setting. Especially for Macbeth, as it's the text we've revised the most... Oh god what if it's setting :afraid:

This exam is easily the one where the most could go wrong for me. It's my first one as well so it'll be the benchmark for how I feel about the rest of them!

I'm doing Doctor Faustus, Frankenstein and the Bloody Chamber.

Oh good luck! It's my last so it'll either make or break my summer holidays... small comfort in the fact that grade boundaries are generally quite low, so there you go.

I didn't think the boundaries were that low, it depends on what everyone gets as a whole
I'm absolutely dreading this exam , the best case scenario would be a question about Lady Macbeth and/or the witches.
GOOD LUCK EVERYONE !!!!

I'm doing Frankenstein, Faustus and Macbeth and I'm reeeeaaallly hoping on a section A about whether Frankenstein is a Gothic novel or not
I keep forgetting that I actually need to incorporate the Gothic elements into the essays
Setting wouldn't actually be that bad because you can talk about the Sublime and Wild landscape aspects of Gothic, its just memorising those sodding quotes

I'd be very surprised if they asked about setting for Section A with Macbeth...I know setting has already come up for Frankenstein and Section B in the past. I'm studying Macbeth, Frankenstein and The Bloody Chamber. Relying on Macbeth for Section A, or The Bloody Chamber if I can talk about The Snow Child and The Lady of The House of Love

I'm doing The Bloody Chamber, Doctor Faustus and Wuthering Heights and I hope to God the question on Doctor Faustus part A is a nice one. I mean, can they talk about setting for Doctor Faustus...? Let's hope not...

For the Part B I would LOVE something on nature or maybe entrapment, but I think they've had those before :/

I know the information, I just struggle on writing the essays in time! Does anyone have any techniques for this?
Also, is anyone else finding The Bloody Chamber a nightmare to learn quotes for!?

I'm doing English and Drama at University and need an A in this! (Which for me is 50/80 UMS- so scared)


Best of luck to everyone! I hope we all get the questions we want!

There's not much setting for Faustus
You don't hear a lot about Wittenberg apart from his whole I want to encase it with brass and make the Rhine run around it
And you don't hear much about Rome itself

Well generally it's around 44/80 for a B so I'm assuming it's not too bad for an A!

I thought it went well actually! I didn't look at the Wuthering Heights question but I did Faustus and the question was great!

How did you find Part B??
