    I'm doing Edwin Morgan too. It is not very likely that it will be hyena or on the snack bar as they have been used before. We did winter for the prelim.
    I'm not so keen on good Friday either as it is the poem that we were taught the least.
    Ive learned four quotations per poem but I really need to revise for the critical essay as I have done no practice essays at home and it is in 2 days although I did get 17/20 in the prelim.

    We did Winter aswell for our Prelim
    I haven't done any essay practice either:/ what are you doing it on? I'm doing it on the novel Frankenstein.. So so fun hahaha not. Really worried about which question will come up on the day! It 'll either go really well or really badly! Have you done any close reading practice?x

    We are doing Macbeth. I really hope there is a character or a theme question and not one about effective opening. However there has not been a question about effective opening yet so it is likely.
    We did our close reading prelim quite early in November and since then we really haven't done much.
    I definitely need to look over how to answer the different types of questions because I'm aiming for 26/30 in the close reading so that if the essay question is really difficult then my grade won't suffer if I get high marks in everything else.
    I'm really worried about my handwriting though because you need to write so much and everyone really struggles to read my handwriting so it could cause me to lose marks.

    How did you find the good Friday questions? I'm a quite worried as I really struggled with one of the questions and I'm not sure if I chose the correct idea for the 8 marker.
    However the close reading went well and the essay question went well I think

    I compared it to in the snack bar and said the human theme was how we judge other people lol its probably wrong. I know a couple of people who did religion through the idea of resurrection. I didn't like the wording of the question though, it wasn't specific enough

    Yeah that question about contrast was hard but apart from that I think the other questions were quite good

    yeah I wasn't sure what the contrast was for that question and had really ran out of time for the last 5 marker

    Was anyone studying Macbeth to use for writing the essay?

    Yeah we did Macbeth too.
    What question did you pick?
    When I read the first question I was horrified but then I saw the question about theme and I was so happy
