I did Macbeth and GE.
Macbeth was easy, but GE was hard and f**k AQA for that awful extract, and the question was just stupid.
Grade boundaries for GE will be low.

Extract was good for explaining why the cratchit family are a poor struggling family. Lots of language devices.

I did the same Macbeth was easy Great Expectations was alright I needed more
time for Macbeth and Great Expectations I talked about the beginning about the
unequal relationship between Pip and Magwitch- 'keep still or I will cut your throat'

In the end Pip meets Magwitch I think In prison and Pip tells him that his daughter is alive- I didn't have time to talk about this

I think Macbeth went alright but low and behold the Great Expectations question. Aqa is killing me. I had to use the shortest quotes🙁

Guys, in the exam today I did Macbeth and A Christmas Carol. Most of my points revolved around structure and form (with some context) rather than language analysis. Is that bad? I'm aiming for an 8 Image

By most I mean I had around one language point only.

I did Macbeth and A Christmas Carol, both fairly easy. However the chrismas carol question for the rest of the play part should have been poverty in general not just the cratchit family

Well my teacher says you cannot get higher than a band 4 without A02 which is quotes, i did the same texts as you but didn't write about structure or form in any of them but included alot of context
