Yeah I'm dying to know too.
Ironically, Medea and Antigone are the only two I feel that I know really well, whereas I could be asked anything on Agamemnon and Electra and have absolutely no idea :')
Good luck on Monday!

I took this exam last year and am re-sitting it this year. I'm hoping something on Agamemnon will come up as a section A and Section B something on Women, I am very anxious about this exam!

Sooo .... it's done. What did you think?
I did the first context question and then the essay on good and bad character traits in Medea.
It was ok and i wrote solidly for 90 minutes but (as ever) didn't do a lot of direct quoting. I'm turning into the queen of paraphrase :unimpressed::unimpressed:

I thought it went really well. I wrote a lot for B and not much for C. Hopefully it turns out ok!

Did you do the first context question too?

I thought that was ok - I hate the ten markers in these questions. I think it went ok though - parts B and C were better!

The Medea question was good (what a relief!). Had to pick material carefully though because I didn't want to run out of time. My conclusion was very hastily written!

I did the Antigone passage but I started the exam with the 45 Marker as it's worth the most marks, I did the question on good & bad characters in Medea. I then went to do the Commentary questions. I totally messed up the 10 marker but if I'm gonna lose marks, I'd rather it be on that - OVERALL a good paper!
