Just wanted to see how people found the exam today! I'm surprised there's not already a thread for this- this is only for people who have done the Edexcel course, so A Streetcar Named Desire and Poems of the decade.
The poetry questions were:
Compare how the poets explore what we inherit from the past in 'Inheritance' and a poem of your choice.
Compare how the poets explore identity in 'Look We Have Coming Dover!' and a poem of your choice.
The Drama question was:
Something about feeling no sympathy towards Stanley. How does Williams present the character of Stanley in ASCND?
Other question was about the effects of past events.
I live in Spain, so yes different exam papers. My questions were:
Song ( express a political viewpoint ) so I compared jt ti Guiseppe
Out of the bag (explore a sense of place) but i hate that poem, so i chose song instead, but in general i found the quetions weird
Ahh I chose to compare the poem by Nagra to Eat Me. For Streetcar I did the question on Stanley. I feel as though I did better in poetry in comparison to drama, which is annoying because drama is worth more marks soo -_-
Hopefully I can make up for this in the prose exam on Wednesday. Hbu & everyone else??
This so weird, my next exam is also on wednesday, on othello and streetcar, so if you had Stanley and past come uo, i doubt those will come up in my exam. Which prose text did you do?
Would anybody be able to tell me what the supernatural question was in the prose paper please??
