I bought the Brannagh version on Amazon Prime: I'm watching with subtitles on, making notes and taking down any quotes. Also making note of the tone/mood in the scene, but apart from that I'm just looking at potential essay questions and drafting plans.

My Lit class are hoping for one on either revenge or women. Personally, I think they're going to give us a moderate passage but with a nasty (b) question.

students last year were so lucky! Ham's last soliloquy and about indecision is a blessing. OCR is not going to be nice this year LOL

I don’t think we will get penalised as long as it’s along the same lines

ive read some a*/full mark essays and some people have quoted stuff that isnt even in the poem and sometimes they spell it wrong so im guessing if it looks right then we will still get the mark 😂
