I did Macbeth and a christmas carol. Don't worry about it i paraphrased ones I couldn't remember as well, as long as you were somewhere along the lines of the actual quote and didn't change the meaning. though I can't really say much because I didn't do jekyll and hyde.
How did you find Macbeth and how many sides did you write?

I thought Macbeth was alright but i dont think i interpreted some of the speech right when I was analysing the quotes, wbu ?? Also I wrote about 3 and a half pages for Macbeth and this was only like 4 paragraphs and the intro and I waffled on a lot, as one of my paragraphs was about an entire page, im really worried though coz on my Dr jekyll and Mr hyde I only wrote one a half pages lol I didnt managed my time well.

Did you do Jekyll and Hyde?? Coz i thought that the Jekll and Hyde question was quite hard as i kept repeating the word sympathy and couldnt think of any synoyns for it.

Surely this would mean you didn't go off a tangent and you kept relating it back to the question!?! which would give you marks for cohesive answers

For macbeth i actually found the question OK but i blanked out and couldn't think of many points at the start, but i managed 3 pages for macbeth and 3 for a christmas carol. my paragraphing was not so good :/
btw don't worry about the length of jekyll and hyde one ... quality not quantity lol

I must've been a lucky B*stard. I did Macbeth and Sherlock Holmes, both of which were stupidly easy compared to the practice exam questions our teachers gave us. I was so scared that Macbeth was going to be about the witches or malcolm.

Same. Such a waste of time revising main characters/themes and light/religious imagery only to get given an extract on the servants and male aggression. I bite my thumb at aqa.

Didn't find a Christmas Carol quite so bad but they could've picked an extract with a bit more to talk about. So much for an easy first year
