I did the question about Medusa but i compared it to the Clown Punk and the question asked how does the character represent their feelings but Clown punk is written in second person. However, for one of my paragraphs, to make up for it, i wrote about how the clown punk cant express his personality therefore he has no opinion of himself and therefore the only representation we have of him is of society's. What grade will i get?, will i get capped?, will it be less than a C?
Please tell me, im really worried.

You can still get AO1 and AO2 marks, so if you did those well for Medusa you could make up for AO3 (you probably will have got some ao3 marks). There are no wrong or right poems to compare to (tbh you could have talked about how the poet feels about his own life, maybe he misses punk and wishes he had been part of it, maybe he is glad he avoided it it - what he says about the clown punk could suggest this) so you won't be capped as it's not wrong, it's just not answering the question when you wrote about Clown Punk. If you look at the mark acheme for section A (it's on past papers), it tells you how it's marked.

Hmm, for Medusa I compared it to Ozymandias
My themes were there both share power in their lives (Medusa turns everything she sees into stone) & (Ozymandias was once a king
they both have a sense of loss (Medusa her Greek God) & (Ozymandias his statue)
they both isolated characters (Medusa is alone) & (Ozymandias is a half broken statue in the desert)
I talked about how Medusa uses her power in a different way to Ozymandias, she uses it to show empowerment to her Husband and get revenge
If I did these correctly what grade am I looking at?

I did medusa and Singh Song
About how Medusa has a negative outlook on life/relationships and is dwelling on her past self vs singh song's positive outlook on life/relationships and he doesn't dwell on the negative (even though everyone calls his shop the worst he does what makes him happy by spending time with his wife). This could show a feeling of happiness if u see what i mean? :/
so basically i've failed.......Last edited by ECWC; 28-05-2016 at 10:25. Reason: syntax
