    Who is taking this paper? I'm taking it again to boost my UMS.

    My texts are:

    1. Enduring Love by Ian McEwan
    2. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
    3. Browning's Anthology
    4. Tennyson's Anthology

    Do you have any thoughts about what could come up? Discuss away!

    I feel under prepared atm

    I feel like chapter 6 Gatsby will come up though.

    Woo! We can help each other

    My predictions:

    Tennyson - either The Lady of Shallot Part 1 or Part 2, or Godiva.

    Browning - The Patriot or another of the poems I haven't done (we only do 4 of them at my school)

    Enduring Love - Chapter 24

    The Great Gatsby - Chapter 6

    I feel so nervous too

    I though patriot would come up last year and it didn't -_-

    I have an amazing booklet thing on the patriot, I'll post it in a sec.

    Hate enduring love, so under prepared with enduring love. FML!

    Definitely feeling chapter 6 for Gatsby, although I won't get too confident but I feel like it.

    Oh I need to do better, I got a C over all last year D in the exam, thankfully an A in the coursework but I let myself down because I waffled like an idiot, I was also under prepared.... so can't repeat that again!

    The Laboratory had never come up and it was my favourite one, I got 19 out of 21 on that

    Oh, yay! Thank you. I have the AQA Examiner notes for it on the Aspects of Narrative if you'd like that?

    I hate Enduring Love too.

    I seriously recommend you do poetry in Section A. It is so much easier for the Aspects of Narrative.

    It's really hard - please don't worry too much. You'll be okay. What's your A2 unit?

    For those who find it helpful:

    SECTION A:

    Little a). 'How does ... tell the story in ....?' - AO1 and AO2 assessed only.

    Little b). AO1, AO3 and AO4 assessed only.

    SECTION B:

    Assessment objectives AO1, AO2 and AO3 assessed here. Write a brief introduction, maybe a conclusive sentence, and write it text by text. Do not juggle and compare. Furthermore, it is recommended that you do two paragraphs on each text. If you do a poetry anthology (which you will) in Section B, you must write about at least two poems. Your choice of poems is essential.

    Most of the time, the question relates to an aspect of narrative - try and decipher which aspect it is relating to when you begin the reading the questions and just jot it down next to it. For example:

    'Write about the ways in which writers use key events in their narratives.'

    This is evidently a question about Time and Sequence.

    THE ASPECTS OF NARRATIVE:

    Place/Setting
    Time/Sequence
    Character
    Voices (Narrative Voice, usually)
    Point of View
    Destination

    Yes please

    I'll post some more stuff on here after I finish my history stuff (so Friday night most likely).

    I agree with you, I think I'll go with poetry. Gatsby is too stressful. Our teachers made us do Gatsby last year and I don't think it worked very well for me. I'm clearly not very good at analysing a chapter and linking it into the the chronology of the whole book, it's too large for me. (if that makes sense).

    Oh dear, if I do worse i'm going to want to jump off a cliff :yes:

    I will do soon, then

    Yes, do not do that. People find it hard because it is. It is hard to tell the story in a chapter. It isn't supposed to be talked about in that way. You'd have to get the right balance between what's in Chapter 6 and what is in the rest of the novel to do okay.

    ASSESSMENT OBJECTIVES

    AO1 - fluent, clear, concise written expression.

    AO2 - analysis of language, form and structure.

    AO2 - brief and relevant integrated quotation.

    AO3 - debate; give both sides of the argument and discuss a point.

    AO4 - social historical context; this should be added lightly and should arise from your points - do not just stick it in unless you are desperate to get it in somewhere by the end.

    A question on endings would be apt for the final paper of the course

    It would. However, haven't they already had one on openings and endings?

    Moreover, it isn't the 'final' one per-se.
