That’s great!
I mean at then end of the day it is based on waffling.
What question did you get for an inspector calls?
What gateway do you do?
I hope you do well.
I feel so relieved it’s done I can throw my books away and never reread them again!

bloody easy for contextual theories carl jung , charles darwin and the main man stevenson himself for j and h. For Macbeth all about early jacobeand and late elizabethan regicide and different ideas about macbeth becoming consumed and driven to use violence to achieve his aims....

In my opinion the questions were the most obvious questions you could choose for macbeth and J+H

Guys my intro:
Something about violence being a fluid status that can easily fade away...and how it incorporates physical as well as metaphorical means.....and somehow linked it to Jacobean era, macbeth and shakespeare

Does that even make sense.....cuz I'm aiming for a 7!!

The whole AO3 bar in the mark scheme
If you have NO context you get 0 marks for context, I think that the context is either 4 or 8 marks but I’m not sure

Did you expand on your fluidity comment? Like how does violence fade away?

I’m not saying it’s wrong, but violence is a prevalent theme throughout the play. However it is okay if you had your own unique interpretation explained fully as it gets you higher marks

Yes I did..as macbeth alternates between violence(attacking his mind) and somewhat perplexion

I'm a bit worried i didn't write enough ;-;. I come out of the exam pretty okay and then everyone's discussing how they wrote like 5-7 pages altogether and there's me like I only wrote around 3 pages. I did 3 paragraphs each question but now i'm a bit worried i didn't write enough :/
Oh well can't change it now.

I found the paper frustrating, i did Macbeth and A Christmas Carol, the questions were very restrictive and the second extract had little to no quotes in it so i had work on memory quotes i just basically went really off the question, i just hope i still get marks for stuff since i did relate it all back to the questions

Also, the Macbeth question was really weird in that i would have never though of it as a possible question, i swear it wasnt even a topic in the revision guides

I thought the 2nd extract was rubbish and I couldn't really link it to much only wrote 2 and a half pages as i ran out of time but oh well.

I linked it to just after the extract, with Marley 'Mankind should have been my business' then talked out ignorance and want finishing it off with a little bit about the poor laws and Dickens speading 'the christmas carol' of goodwill to all mankind. Our teacher had us just before the exam and told me to just do what i did in my mock but change the first 2 sentences to fit the question XD
