    thought that was good tbh, really liked the crucible question. hoping for full ums, does anyone know what mark was needed for full ums last year? I've already got full marks on my controlled assessment too.

    guys on the english lit exam i wrote the wrong month do you think anything would happen?
    I highly doubt it, I wouldn't worry, people probably make that mistake every year

    Almost definitely higher; I have not come across a person who found it difficult.

    I predict 57+ out of 68

    Chill man, 57 is a bit too much. Max 52 in my opinion.

    Don't fret, the exams are marked by actual people after all who would most definitely understand and probably wouldn't care.
    My friend accidentally wrote her candidate number in her centre number box and vice versa so :rolleyes:

    I did something really stupid, so I left a page half way through thinking that i'd come back to it to finish off my AIC answer, and then started OMAM on the other side. Did I need to write "pto->" or anything because I didn't fill up the space?
    plus I forgot to cross out my plan

    Does anyone remember the exact question for part b on OMAM? Reading what people have written is making me feel that I read the question wrong due to how much of a rush I was in...
    Part (a) was the extract, asking how Steinbeck presents the build up towards Lennie's death
    Part (b) was something along the lines of how dreams are presented (you had to choose one or two characters).

    Can't remember it word for word unfortunately.

    Not sure whether I had the same paper as everyone but the poems...
    my poems was about jobs and the first poem was going on about a woman who works in a fish market (or so I thought) turns out when I asked my English teacher she said it was about a prostitute..
    Anyone got any ideas on what the hell is going on right now?

    The question did specifically say in bold to write about one or two characters. Hopefully it won't matter too much though.

    I also forgot to cross out my plan. I doubt they care though - you're not going to lose marks for it and the examiners aren't idiots.

    Who I really feel for though are the people in my school who answered both of the section A DNA questions - There's a large bit in bold saying "answer question 20 OR question 21" but they still managed to do both

    Part (b) was something along the lines of "how is society during this time presented to the reader" and then a question about how dreams are presented (you had to choose one or two characters).

    Can't remember it word for word unfortunately.

    Part (b) Wasnt about society , it was about how dreams are shown in society

    Hi guys, I feel like so many people run out of time this year, is it just me? I started my OMAM part B about 10 mins before the end... never seen my handwriting change so much XD
    same!! I spent way too much time on my inspector calls question and then barely had any time for OMAM. I only managed to make two points in my part B and my handwriting was illegible

    I don't think you did the same paper as them because we haven't done our poems paper yet
