    I picked the first question, and messed up. It asked for two women, but I misread and only analysed one.... ugh... Wonder how many marks I'll lose. That being said, I did go into quite a lot of detail with Abigail, so I'm hoping I'll still get SOME.
    Seriously don't worry about it!
    I bet you did better than me and i did two women
    What do you think about grade boundaries will be like? I need a B but idk sounds like everyone else did amazing
    Anyway, good luck with poetry on Friday and anything else you have in-between!

    Overall I wrote 2.5 for AIC and 2.5 for OMAM including both sections
    I wrote similar, I wrote about 3 for AIC and 2.5 for OMAN but rushed it so bad because I literally spent 11 minutes on the whole section for OMAN, yet I still managed to get a high A, almost an A* in that same exam.

    I did the exam last year June 2015.

    5 pages overall is enough. Good luck!

    I literally did the same thing what do u think will happen ?
    Honestly no idea. I have a feeling that we probably won't be getting over 20 marks. But hope for the best! I'm counting on my spelling, punctuation and grammar to be spot on

    The grade boundaries are going to be high for that exam. Apparently it's 38/68 for a C.

    I can't see it go that high. It was higher for my exam last year in June 2015 than June 2014 and 13.

    38/68 will most likely be a B, or 1 mark off it lol.

    Last year, you needed at least 45/68 for an A ( 37/68 for a B) and the boundaries only seem to be getting higher bit by bit Eh, hopefully I didn't lose TOO many marks, but I'm worried content-wise. I feel like they asked for two characters for a reason

    You'll probably get what you're aiming for!! And good luck to you too!

    Well then you did a lot better than me! That probably counts as two characters. I only compared Abigail to Elizabeth in like ... one sentence.

    I actually thought I did die. I asked the invigilator: How much time do we have left?

    She/he said: ehh... 11 minutes.

    I almost got a cardiac arrest as I just turned to the Of Mice and Men question + misread it slightly.

    Not sure if you had to compare. Maybe you just had to analyse two characters.
    But I didn't do any of that anyways, I literally wrote ''Act one ends with Abigail and the final act ends with Elizabeth so this shows their contrasting personalities'' and that was IT
