Emotions and Place came up last year, so it can't be those!
Maybe violence/nature?!

I'm scared it's going to be a really obscure one like water though :|

Nope. Last one up is January 2014 and the questions were strong emotions and place

Hey, I don't think that colour is likely to come up as it was in the 2012 paper but I do think that nature/water is likely or possibly even memory but then again because it's the last paper in this specification they could throw anything in this year (

Well I would do tulips and also maybe a poem reflecting motherhood and being pregnant as we know Plath had conflicting thoughts about that... For hughes I'd definitely go with New Foal/March Calf

Dont worry, just remember that Hughes is not the essay Plath is and you have to only highlight Hughes!! Just make on the surface comments about it and if you can find in depth meanings then use those but don't stress too much! Hughes is very vivid when it comes to nature anyways so you won't struggle too much

How was it guys?

I picked the nature question and did:
Tulips & Thistles
Wuthering Heights & Wodwo

For the play they put me in a really weird room with a woman who wasn't even an invigilator and didn't announce the timings so I didn't get to finish my last paragraph (didn't even get to writing quotations from the extract) let alone start my conclusion. I actually want to cry. How bad is it? Like will they penalise me for that?

I did the Larkin 'journeys' question and talked about Here and Whitsun Weddings, rather than looking at how they discuss journeys at face value, which would have had all the analytical depth of a gardening catalogue, I instead looked at what the journeys could represent: timeline of life and human development for Here, and industrialisation and the course of marriage in Whitsun Weddings. For Abse I used Leaving Cardiff, as the boat is obviously a motif for death. Was this all the correct thing to do?

I didn't answer that question but they've done a question about journeys before I think and I'm pretty sure the mark scheme said that it could be interpreted broadly as long as you back up your arguments. I did the other question and wrote about Afternoons and Talking In Bed, then linked it to social conventions of marriage etc, then used Abse's A Scene From Married Life to contrast. Only wrote one paragraph about Abse, but it was fairly detailed, just hope it was enough!

Did anyone else do Murmuring Judges? My drama essay was pretty rushed towards the end which is worrying me, literally just about finished :|.

I did the darkest aspects of life question

Plath: Daddy
Death & Co.

Hughes: The Tender Place
Red

Don't worry!! I didn't have enough time to finish my play either, tbh I think people have this problem every year so you won't be badly penelised!!

Tbh I was expecting worse but I was really annoyed that nature came up as I just don't like nature focused questions

I also did the Arcadia question on timeshifts. Gotta love how the extract they gave us had precisely one timeshift to work with. Still, I interpreted it more broadly and spoke about not only that one timeshift, but also about the connections between the past and present evident in the scene, as well as a dash of context and character development. Here's hoping.
