Hi guys,

I have a big exam coming up for Macbeth, which will determine my set for Year 10. The thing is, I haven't had a teacher for most of Macbeth studies, which is why I need your help. I have written a practice answer (attached) to the following question below, if you would be able to take a quick look and give me your feedback, I would be very grateful. I forgot the intro at the beginning, so find it at the end instead.

Thanks.

Hi

It's obviously pretty difficult to get comments on particular pieces of work in time for your deadline. I had a quick read of this and think you've written it very well considering you are a pre-GCSE student.

If I had to criticise it I would say you could do with paying closer attention to the wording of the tasks - eg using the word 'conscience' more so you focus exactly on that part of the question. Perhaps the answer is a little general??

Overall, I think you'll get into a high set - well done!
