Hey guys!

I couldn't find a thread for this years exam, so I thought I'd start one. I visited a thread for last years exam and it helped a great deal so I'm hoping this one will do the same for people.

So please use this to talk to others doing this exam, ask any questions, share revision techniques and any answers you've written, and make predictions as to what you think might come up this year.

Good luck with both your revision and exams!

Hi I'm really struggling with how to revise for this one. I'm doing Dr Faustus, Northanger Abbey and The Changeling but cannot seem to find any revision for The Changeling? How are you all revising

Unfortunately, I am doing none of your texts. But to revise I am just doing loads of essay questions. That way I learn the quotes and at the same time I'm practicing my writing style and timings.

Also trying to pick quotes that can be used for several different elements. Hope this helps

Hi. I studied this subject last year and I got a B. I did Frankenstein, The Bloody Chamber and Dr Faustus and to get to grips with the various themes and features involved, I did a three-way comparison which I posted on a different forum. I also have a compendium of useful quotes (mostly from English review). can post these if anyone feels they would be of any use

Omg this thread is going to be so helpful!!

I've studied Northanger Abbey, Wuthering Heights, Frankenstein and The Changeling (although I seriously doubt I will write about Wuthering I hate it!!).

Just wondering what you've been told about the grading? My teachers grade our practice essays in the Bands so they'll just write 'Low Band 5' 'High Band 4' etc at the end of each essay. What actual grade does each band relate to?

Thanks !!

Hey I'm doing Frankenstein, Macbeth and Wuthering Heights (I also detest this book)

From my own person experience, you seem to be able to get an A somewhere from mid band 5 upwards I think. Band 4 is a B I believe.

Hey guys!
I'm doing Frankenstein, The Bloody Chamber, Doctor Faustus and Northanger Abbey (we study four because our teachers have seen an improvement in results with four texts). Has anyone got any predictions what might come up for Section A on any of these texts? Or Section B? I'm really hoping a question on the extent to which John Thorpe is a Gothic Villain comes up on Section A, or ambiguity of evil in Faustus!
