Apparently the first poem (about the fish) was about prostitution, but I didn't write that. Did anyone put that, and would I lose marks for not saying that? (I said what I thought it meant but it wasn't that)

I bet it is VERY controversial and you probably could put lots of things as people interpret it differently.

I think it was to do with the variation of fish available and how fish can be associated with the smell of sex

What did you write about for the TKAM extract? Wasn't sure about the layout as we've done very little practice for these in class and didn't do a mock for literature a few months ago...

It's all about being able to justify your points with quotations! It doesn't matter if you didn't talk about prostitution or homosexuality- you will not get marked down! In fact if you have different interpretations to this you're more likely to gain marks - as this is what is needed to get the A* grade!

I wrote for the extract:
-it shows that Attitus loves Jem dearly and vice versa
-Atticus used Mrs Dubose's illness and bitternes to show Jem that Courage appears in different ways and, how to apply this lesson on Jem's future life.
-An alternative impression: Atticus manipualted Mrs Dubose's situation for revenge for her insults against him
-Oh, and the candy box that Jem threw in the fire may refer to Mrs Dubose's exterior and the pure,white flower represents her inner purity and well-meaning towards Jem and Atticus
-and some other stuff which isn't coming to my head rn

I got tired of PEE, so i started using PETAL(point,evidence,technique,a nalyis and alternative impression and LINK) which helped me get a solid B in the mocks

I chose that one too; I just wrote about how Dill, Boo, Tom and Walter are all figurative mockingbirds in the novel. What about you?

I wrote about several different interpretations and did write about prostitutes etc, but I'm sure if you backed up what you wrote it will be fine.
