Heey Guys!

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.

Im confused, I also did this exam today, but are you talking about the international one? because i did that one and got a question on Out of the Bag and Song, and I t was poetry and prose, with the kite runner, so i suppose it was a different exam right?

Yeah we must have done different exams then. I don't think we're international, I live in the UK. Where do you live?

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??

Yeah I was gonna do the Nagra poem to either Eat Me or A Leisure, but I chose Inheritance and compared it to Genetics instead.

Yeah if I had that question, I would have probably done exactly what you did. Maybe might have even compared it to The Deliever as its about infanticide.

I don't mind Out of The Bag anymore, but 'a sense of place' what the heck would you compare that to? History? Furthest Distance?
