    I thought it went well. I thought it was a reaaaaally nice paper. A bit gutted to have a Shakespeare drama as I wanted to use one in my wider reading - ah well!

    Sounds good though - I used Streetcar also! How did everyone in your group find it? My class had VERY mixed reactions! And you! xxxx

    I love Streetcar, just wish I'd had time to incorporate it, it was perfect for the second extract! Pretty much the same reactions, it was a hard paper to call in terms of how much everyone seemed to interpret the poetry differently! Let's just hope for the best :flower2: XXX

    I think it's really hard to shift focus when you've written about one thing for nearly an hour, immersed yourself in it, to then have to immediately turn your focus to analysing 2 lengthy prose/and drama pieces of entirely different content. I felt the same as you. I'm sure you did fine!

    Exactly. After the first question I felt exhausted and was ready for the exam to end. Thanks though it probably went better than we think.
