So I think it's already time for all of us to bring out an anthology text prediction for the May/June 2018 Exams. What are your predictions for both paper 1 and 2?

R u referring to the anthology with Chinese Cinderella and Passage to Africa in it?? If we're talking about the same one I'm so ****ed. I hope it's not Chinese Cinderella or one one about being Young and Dyslexic.

Yes, I'm talking about Anthology. Yeah, Chinese Cinderella is long text so far and it just gets on my nerves. I just hope some easy text appears.

I've been through all the papers that are unlocked and these are the anthologies that have came up already:

Passage to Africa
Game of polo with a headless goat: twice
Explorers daughter
Explorers or boys messing about: twice
Chinese Cinderella: twice
Between a rock and a hard place: twice, plus it was in the new spec materials so most definitely won't come up.

Disabled: twice
Whistle and I'll come to you: In the spec materials.
An unknown girl
Out Out

So I guess focus more on the anthologies that haven't came up yet or only came up once.

Thanks for this! Does anyone know which texts are new for the new spec? Our teacher has suggested that these are more likely to come up

For paper one these are the new ones:

The Danger of a single story
Young and Dyslexic
Beyond the sky and the earth
H is for hawk

I think it's likely one of these four will come up, and my teacher thinks the danger of a single story and young and dyslexic are the ones most likely to come up because of the kind of themes in them, and they they're kind of on contemporary issues that have never came up in the anthologies before.

I used the videos on this channel to make notes for Young and Dyslexic and The Danger of a Single Story.

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUg...OhFU_aztonzCEg

If I get the time I'll type up my notes on the other two.
Hope that helps x

How did the exam go for everyone? I thought it was ok... But H is for Hawk isn't really my favourite anthology in the world. What did everyone choose for the last question?
