    Is it possible to get into the highest band and get an A if you have done the "wrong question" or the question that seems difficult to write an essay on...?

    I have always been told that when choosing the question, for English lit, it is best to choose the one that makes you think more. The more the question makes you think about ways of answering, possible interpretations etc the more in-depth analysis and arguing you will probably do.
    Did you do AQA English Lit? Which question did you choose?
    Don't worry! There is no changing what has been done so not much point in worrying

    Choose the questions you're most comfortable with and feel that you could hit all of the AO's with. Throughout my literature exams, I often found that I had completed different questions to those in my class, but performed to a similar level. It's all all a matter of personal preference. The exam boards (mine was AQA) are most concerned about your understanding of the texts and contexts, the rest follows naturally.
    Good luck!

    Thanks for answering my question! My exam board was OCR and I don't think anyone did the question I chose (for the dystopia paper) so I was just a bit worried because I feel like I chose the wrong question.. But there's no point worrying about it now like you said
