I think they’ll be high; especially as Ozymandias came up, and many people probably did well.

I was really happy with all the questions (I do power and conflict + an inspector calls), most people at my school also thought it went really well so if everyone found it that easy maybe the grade boundaries will be a bit high. They’ll definitely be higher than last year’s summer grade boundaries but hopefully they’re not as highs as the move ember re sit ones

Apparently the love and relationships was really hard so maybe the boundaries could be lower.

The modern text part was good. I messed up with poetry but unseen was okay. Everyone is saying grade boundaries will be high because of ozymandias but love and relationship got singh song, which they didn't want so it might not be that high. I'm hoping for low grade boundaries because after my poetry essay, I'm gonna need it.

This paper despite knowing what to write about I ####### it,I didn't write about enjambment,oxymoron,caesura anything like that and just waffled my way through.

Even in an AIC I didn't know what to write about for Eric so did social class and in that I don't even think my points were relevant despite going over social class in the morning.

I'm so annoyed with myself.UGH

I compared ozymandias w war photographer... My points were: (simplified bc cba)

Both say power is timeless but ozymandias does through fear and authority while war photographer does this through media and institution

Both say power can be destructive but in ozymandias power destroys physical being and in war photographer it destroys psychological state

Both say power is painful, but in ozymandias pain transcends a cosmological timeframe but in war photographer pain lasts seconds to the contemporary reader

Are these any good? I had a small conclusion too idk? What grade do you think?

hopefully the grade bounderies wont be that high since the love and relationships poem was really hard as you said but overall the boundaries will be in the middle i think, not low but not too high.

I thought it was a really good paper... AIC questions were really good I did the social class one and the poem was a gift: compared to exposure through the power of nature, unseen poem was also a good one
Grafe boundaries might be high because most people i know found the exam was very good but hopefully not too high

both inspector calls questions were easy to talk about so i really liked that, i didnt know which to chose at first but ended up going with eric since i revised him the most. also yea hopefully grade boundaries arent too high i want a good grade haha

Yes me too, but I didn’t know any quotes except ‘my last duchess’ so I repeated the same quote like 2 times but analysed 2 different words out of it. Like someone once told me “it’s not about how many quotes you know, it’s about how you use it”
