I didn't find the questions hard but I ran out of time . I wrote 3 pages for Macbeth and 1 and a quarter for A Christmas Carol. Hopefully the content on my Christmas Carol essay won't let me down too much.
I wrote around 3 for Macbeth and I do Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde sorry x I’m so scared what grade boundaries will be like now

An inspector calls wasn't terrible... Not great, but not the worst
Jekyll and Hyde was a curse upon this planet.

You probably will find it online soon, i didnt do Romeo and Juliet but A Christmas Carol was about the Ghosts influence on scrooges change/redemption and the extract was from Stave 1 where scrooge was like you are fettered and he met Marleys ghost etc

Macbeth was too easy. Hyperbolic language in the extract, listed that. Also Macbeth’s bravery and courage is being shown as well as his strength in comparison to everyone else as ‘all were too weak’ or suen like that which could give connotations of him being described as god, foreshadowing how he interferes w the divine right of kings hierarchical structure when committing regicide, this leading to his eventual downfall and would what a Jacobean audience would wanna see. Also talked ab ambition, guilt and triumph as well as his naive nature falling under the influence of the supernatural and LM. I predicted the q to be ab a theme and it surprised me but I linked everything together w the right quotes so.. plus you gotta link it back to the q too and you do that by illustrating how his ambition originated by his sinful temptations lead to the deaths of many due to his desires, and the guilt is representative of his downfall etc. etc.

Pride and prejudice was too hard looool, didn’t do too well tbf, winged it a bit but I’m being too harsh on myself, Macbeth was a gift for me 😂

I blacked out in the first 10 mins but I finally finished, I cried so much in the end it's so overwhelming I don't know whether I did well or not but I hopefully did well *fingerscrossed*
This is exactly what happened to me. I couldn't even think straight the question was so easy but I went blank. Time was ticking and everyone was writing. I started writing like 15mins in and who knows what I wrote. Ha I thought I wasn't going to cry but as soon as I walked out and started talking to my friend, I welled up.
