    Yes, as I said. The last one was about a play in which there was one or more of the following intolerance, envy, hatred etc. (I don't remember). Write how these affect your understanding of the poem as a whole.

    I know this is a long shot but I'm studying "The Cone Gatherers" as my set text. Did you happen to hear what the 10 marker was on from anyone? Thanks

    This turned into me supplying information rather than my original question, but that's fine. I will ask around tomorrow and may find a copy of the prelim to scan.

    Yandex , I done CAD last year but for that question I find it easier to follow this structure. You may already do it this way but idk so I'll just show you how anyway.

    Your first heading is

    COMMONALITY

    You say how 'IN' this poem she creates a memorable character by the use of the speaker and their emotions in the poem. Distraught, dismay etc., from being jilted at the altar. Then you go onto say 'SIMILARLY' in another poem how she does the exact same thing but in that poem. 'Anne Hathaway' might've been a good one to use as your secondary text because it's about the memories she has of her lover. Then you state 'OVERALL' Duffy uses the point of view of the speaker to create a memorable character.

    That structure is guaranteed to get you 2 marks.

    PRIMARY TEXT

    Here you quote from the text in front of you. This section is worth 2 marks so you only need to make 2 points.
    Simply, QUOTE>TECHNIQUE>ANALYSE

    I find this structure easy for all of my analysis points in poems.

    "XXXXXXXX" Metaphor: Just as X has connotations of dismay and sadness, so too does Havisham in her anguish from being jilted at the altar. And so forth.



    SECONDARY TEXT

    Here is where you would compare to the secondary text that you mentioned in the commonality section. This section is worth 6 marks. So, that means you need to QUOTE>TECHNIQUE>ANALYSE 6 times. Or you can do a 2 mark developed point 3 times. I usually go for 4/5 undeveloped points worth 1 mark and try do at least one or two developed points just in case.


    That structure is guaranteed to get you 10 marks in the final question of the Scottish Text section of Higher English.

    Also BULLET POINT every single quote you analyse so it's clear to your marker what you are exactly doing. It just makes it much easier to pick up marks.

    Idk if this will help you Yandex but it might help others. I am not sure if it's a universally used structure either but if not I recommend people use it . That is quite an awkward question as well so I wouldn't get down over it
