Streetcar questions were good do you think? Didn't like the masculinity question felt like the Blanche question was a bit open to interpretation

i personally found the streetcar question pretty ok, i picked the blanche one and wrote something about she was delusional because of this, delusional because of that.... i also talked about mental illness just so i could jam in some context about tw's sister with the mental illness but looking back on it im not sure that was wise
oh well.... i guess we'll see on results day....!!

EDIT: we only had to do one question from each section, right?

Wish I wrote about Blanche being delusional properly I couldn't get the words out for my topic sentence so it was a bloody mess but have you seen OCR's marked previous essays on streetcar? Someone didn't refer to the question once in their essay and they got a bloody 26! That's a B!!! There's hope 😌

I quite liked it, I mean I don't know if it was what the examiner wanted but I wrote 5 pages about the Blanche questions saying that it's not her who can't face the truth, rather it's her fear of others I interpretation the the 'truth' fingers crossed, because I absolutely failed paper 1

Ahaha my friends and I were saying how we wanted to link to Stella but there was no real link for Blanche and stellar in the particular question... I too wanted to mention the mental illness to show my very vage knowledge of context, I just couldn't find any way in doing so, so hats off to you, and all the best

We were not taught critics all we ever did was literally go through one hour of our teacher give her own interpretation and how it links to her own life, I had no mention of critics, other than myself of course, so I hope that does not have a detrimental effect on my overall grade

Critics are important; A05 is 20% of the assement objectives for this exam.

Probably not, you at least 5 I would say, in the last weeks paper did you mention critics for Shakespeare? But overall it shouldn't influence your grade too much
