    I did the question about Medusa(how to does the poet use the character in medusa and another poem to show how they feel, or something like that) in the english literature exam today 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?

    Q2 was about how they describe themselves and their lives, not feelings

    I think as long as you referenced the question and discussed the main things in each poem for writing a comparison poetry essay e.g. Form, Language, Imagery etc.
    Also, depending on you're tier of entry, it can actually be harder to get a C. I think its around 75% according to my teacher to achieve a grade C in Literature, and that's including Monday's Unit. 1 exam and coursework. For higher the grade boundaries for a C, are lower because the question are supposedly harder.

    It was about how the poet presents the characters lives and description of themselves so it's okay, everything is fine

    Hmm, for Medusa I compared it to Ozymandias
    Similarities
    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)
    Difference
    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 compared Medusa to The River God and wrote about how they both see themselves in a self-deprecating way. I then said this lead them to be angry/jealous and harm people becuase of it. I also wrote that it shows how other people's actions (Cheating, calling the river old) can affect their self confidence and self worth, causing them to lash out at other people (Drowning,turning to stone).

    Maybe I went off on a tangent too much? I have no idea how that exam went
