By CR do you mean close reading or critical reading? Lol.

The close reading was actually alright. Much easier than practice ones we've done in class, which I suppose is a good thing. The passages are about Titanic if you care about that.

As for critical reading, I think it was quite hard. I didn't quite get the 10 marker question finished on the TA because I had to move on to the the essay. I'm doing Men should weep for my Scottish text.

I'm doing The Godfather for the essay so I could have easily written an essay for any of the questions. For film the questions were something about sound/lighting, a character which has an important dilemma, and an opening sequence question.

Good luck for your exam!

It might not seem like it, but you're best not finding this out...You won't know in advance for the real exam, and for you to get the most out of your prelims in terms of being able to learn from them and get an idea of how you're doing, not knowing the questions is important. Up to you what you do, but you're kidding yourself on if you do well based on knowing the questions in advance.

Hope that the prelim goes well for you when it comes

Hey, how do you revise 10mk questions for Jekyll and Hyde? I'm doing that one too, and as it's the first year it's on the set text list, there aren't many example questions...

Hey man,

The 2019 P&N paper is fantastic! I’m not sure if you want to know the exact questions, but the paper is genuinely so good.

our school for whatever reason is no longer doing its usual text for the Scottish text (they normally do carol ann duffy) as we’re doing Jekyll and Hyde. And for the essay, we’re doing The Devils Wife or Schlinder’s List.

is anyone else doing Jekyll and Hyde 😭 I like the book but don’t want to answer questions on it
We are doing Jekyll and Hyde, and Poems by Don Paterson. How did you find the prelim?
