    Guys I have my exam on 18th-paper 1. Do you have any tips for me, especially on stories of ourselves and songs of ourselves. It is really hard to write a three sided essay(especially for the short stories) so if you have any advise, please share it here. Thank you in advance

    I'm doing songs of ourselves for poetry and I'm in the same situation, I can barely write 2 sides in 45 mins but I would say that it's important to remember that the examiner won't actually penalise you for writing less but you should aim to write at least two sides in order to cover all of the topics. However I wouldn't worry just stay calm going into the exam and do your best, it's quality not quantity!

    Are you doing passage based or critical for the story?

    Definitely passage based I just think that it's harder to go wrong with a passage based and it is also quite open to your own interpretation of it. Sometimes the passage isn't great but I think that the chances are better.

    I think the essay question is favourable if you have a good set of quotes.

    I'm learning quotes for prose and maybe memorise quotes for poetry because there is only 1 poem/ extract and the rest are essay questions

    How did everyone find it? I thought it went okay for me - I had Hardy for poetry and I'm the King of the Castle for prose. I have An Inspector Calls on Friday.

    The poetry from the Songs of ourselves was kinda hard. I think that they chose the worst poems they could have...The woodspurge and The city planners...Why? Why couldn't they choose Pike, Hunting Snake, The Planners or at least A different History? Regarding Silas Marner questions, I found the extract based question okay, but I think I did better on the poetry..
