    do you happen to remember the section B questions?
    The significance of characterisation and the significance of final sentences!

    I did characterisation Thought the question on final sentences was quite apt considering it's the last ever exam though

    That was fantastic!! The Auden question was absolutely perfect for me, personally got so lucky with that one! Anyone else pick that one for section A??

    Did anyone do the Characterization question? I did final lines myself, just wondering how y'all found that one??

    I did the same questions as you! I agree James Honeyman was a fantastic poem for me as it was one of my favourite poems, the women question that followed was equally as good as it allowed me to set up a sense of debate! Section B was equally as great as it allowed me to comment on specific events that had importance regarding the final sentences. Overall a fantastic exam! Much better than last years

    I did Auden for section A! Thought it was such a great question for the odd numbered too! The characterisation part was really well too! What did you guys talk about in the odd numbered for Auden, I talked about James Honeyman, victor, miss gee and o what is that sound wrote more paragraphs than I have been doing in mocks too which was weird

    Yes!! Me too, had prepared James Honeyman so much considering it was the only one that hadn't been picked so far. The (ii) question was fair too I thought. It went soo much better than last year!

    It really was! James Honeyman is one of my favorites too, and I wrote about my other two favourites, Victor and Miss Gee in the even number! Didn't even look at the questions for my other texts, I was buzzing for Auden!

    I did Victor, Miss Gee and James Honeyman... tried to be clever and try to do Musee des Beaux Arts but kicked that to the curb for sake of ease... I was running out of time, so I don't think I wrote more, but it was certainly much better than anything I did last year!

    What other texts did you do, and what did you write about for characterization? I was tempted to do that one, but the last line of Kite Runner pushed me over the edge because it was so nice...
