wow you have really given me hope im much better at the second literature paper but good luck with the rest of your exams and thanks for looking at my work
(Original post by ra.dhxy)
Thanks, Dhini for the response. I am predicted a 9, but I just needed some validation! Looking at yours, I would reckon its a Grade 7, because of some good interpretations, (that I didn't think of), like the minions and the scorpions. Perhaps, it's only the purpose you are lacking in. Why does Shakespeare write about minions, or scorpions, etc. and its relevance to society. It's good that you included an alternative view. Hopefully, if you have a good examiner, I reckon it could be a low grade 8. Well done nevertheless!

if you mentioned he is presented really violent that is explaining 'how far' however if you just put he is violent that is no good

depends, if you get a young marker who has minimal knowledge of the play then you'll be fine but if you get a marker who knows the play then you dont get any ao1 marks but you might get lucky and get some ao2 marks but any context that is relevant will still be rewarded marks for

if you have made good coherent points then you'll be fine, however, you won't be able to get into the top 7,8,9 grades. Even in normal questions, you still kind of have to contradict yourself with an explanation. Check out some mrbruff videos before your next paper

was the violence referring to Macbeth though? because, in my answer, i wrote a quote from lady Macduff about the transition Macbeth made from being non-violent to violent as she said "when our actions do not, our fears make us traitors" and this represents Macbeth where although he killed, it was his guilt that was his own traitor of his actions and consequently he was not violent as he had empathy and compassion, he was just weak and manipulated by lady macbeth. My quote had othing to do with the question itself but helped with answering the question so made my other points, make more sense. Maybe the examiners will interperet as you doing something like this, so i wouldnt worry about it.
btw this is a really rough sketch of the point i made so it probably doesnt make too much sense
sorry for the long answer

honestly you wont lose marks as long as your other 3 paragraphs are good because there is no place in mark scheme which says you need balcnce between extract and text- does your other 3 paragraphs cover all of the AO's

I used a Lady Macbeth quote as well. “When you durst do it then you were a man” Just kinda thought it’d help show how Macbeth mostly acted through violence due to her manipulation. It helped me shove some context in about the patriarchal society too.

There is It could’ve been worse, my friend didn’t realise we had to answer two questions so missed out one entirely!

Focus your energy into the next exams and don’t worry about it, it won’t change your answers. At the end of the day, there is still another Lit exam which you can use to further improve your grade.

Good luck!

Do you think talking about how he is violent consistently throughout the play is good enough? That's the route I went down completely missing the how far part of the question oop

what the hell was the macbeth extract on?
Not sure if someone's replied to this already, but it's from the second scene of the play where the 'Captain' tells King Duncan about the battle between King Duncan and the rebels (from like Norway or something?) that are trying to overthrow Duncan. Macbeth is praised by the captain for his skill in battle in the extract.
