So for the exam I did A Christmas Carol and Merchant Of Venice and I have two questions:


1) This is the structure I did for my answer:



Point
Quotation
Explanation
Relation To Dickens Time
Alternative Meaning
Likelihood of this alternative meaning

For each 30 marker, I did three for the extract and three for the rest of the play + a conclusion. Is this enough to attain high marks.

2) I'm unsure if I included enough AO2.

I talked about sentence structures several times and talked about the use of pauses. I also talked briefly about how Dickens uses language such as "and he worries for his child's safety" instead of "but he worries for his child's safety" in order to show us that Bob has many worries in his head (went a bit more in depth). Is this enough for AO2? I'm not sure how I could have included form, since there wasn't much to say for A Christmas Carol. I did roughly the same for Merchant Of Venice.

I did the same but for both romeo and Juliet and Frankenstein AO2 says language feature and the use of structure so I think you will be fine
