Agreed for A Christmas Carol. After years of studying poverty, redemption, change eg, that was a horrible question.

Macbeth and Frankenstein were easy and although I don't take it I would guess that Pride and Prejudice was easy as it asked the candidate to explore the themes of pride and prejudice.

I loved that they asked us about the supernatural for Macbeth. If only I knew more about Banquo though but oh well

Am I the only one that didn’t look at fear in a literal sense? I made the points that Scrooge’s fears made him vulnerable and seseptable to change as well as leading him to become an outsider to society??

I wrote that it demonstrates that he’s well aware of their power and influence over evil- thus wary of them- and of the way they can trick people with equivocation, while Macbeth was all like yeah I trust you and that’s pretty stupid

I did the same (Xmas Carol and Macbeth). Xmas carol I talked about
"Scrooge feared the silent shape so much that his legs trembled" (from extract)
"The phantom gravely, silently approached" (from extract, something similar)
"Tell me if tiny tim will live"
"Father is so much kinder than he used to be"
"Oh tell me I may sponge away the writing on this stone"

For Macbeth, I wrote about
"Instuments of darkness cannot be ill, cannot be good" (extract)
""Two truths are told" (extract)
"If you can look into the seeds of time and tell us which grains will grow and which will not" -banquo
A few more quotes which I can't remember. But I didn't talk about context for any of them! Don't know how many marks I lost their

I think context might be 6 marks,so without any context at all, thats about 24 max that you can get, which Im guessing is a 7. Dont worry, you probably did great apart from that minor error (not really minor, but Im trying not to depress ya, eh)

What did you guys write for Romeo and Juliet and Journey's End?
I was so happy Lord Capulet and the theme of power came up, literally the most baitest theme ever.
For JE, I did Q13 about trench life, that was calm too, just a lot of context.

What did you guys write specifically?
