Hi! I'm doing the same paper on Thursday and I'm so so nervous considering last year's paper! I'm doing Othello, Death of a salesman and Tess (sadly) What about you?

I'm doing Keats instead of Tess. What do you think will come up? I hope it's an Iago and Othello question

I just hope it is a nice extract that I can use well. I'm nervous for unseen poetry as well.

Same!! I'm actually hoping Othello himself comes up this year! I'm thinking the extract may possibly be Act 5, considering there hasn't been one yet. However, I'd love for it to be Act 3, Scene 3. For section B, I'm hoping for a question on Othello's nobility by the end or something similar, I'll be so annoyed if it's on a minor character. The GCSE paper was meant to be wonderful so hopefully they'll be kind to us this year.

Oh yes, I wouldn't mind that but yes no minor characters pls. The Iago and Roderigo scene was a bit of shock last year. I'm praying that it's good.

Hi! I'm doing Othello, Wuthering Heights and post-1900 love poetry. We were all thinking the Othello question will be on familial love, which I'm hoping it won't be!

Section B is the Unseen Poetry section for spec A, isnt it? It goes Shakespeare, Unseen Poetry and then poetry/prose.

Oh no, my paper is way different. Section A (unseen Othello extract), section B: Othello Question and then Section C: an essay where I compare Death of a Salesman and Keats

Oh, that might be specification B then? Honestly that sounds nicer, less poetry!

We might not be doing the same paper then cause in my exam you get two poems that you have not seen before and you have to discuss a key theme within them. I know there is more than one option for the English lit paper so you might do a different paper.

I'm doing specification A (Othello, Jane Eyre, and pre-1900 love poetry). I'm really hoping the unseen poetry will be good. How are you all spending these last few days of preparation before the exam?

Go online and type in Seneca learning. Make an account, they have an Othello chapter. It covers the main events and key themes and characters. It is made my examiners. It's really good.

Hey! I've got a feeling the exam's going to be super hard on Thursday because i've heard the language paper was hard too! Apparently AQA are wording things really difficultly so that's fun . Hopefully It's not on the women, I've got a feeling it won't be on Othello himself because last year's paper was about morality and death, so this year is probably love/jealousy? What do we think?
