Good afternoon all, hope the exam has gone well today :-)

Just curious to see what people compared ‘Winter Swans’ to in the exam today.

I compared it with Porphyria’s Lover.

Nice, I was thinking about comparing it to that initially. How did you find the question?

I found it okay to be honest. Im really glad it was not a family relation one. I think Love Philosophy would have been the best option but I think I would of got a better mark with sonnet 29 as i knew quotes with language and structural devices.

Tbh I was hoping that if it was a family relationship, it was Follower so I could’ve compared it to Eden Rock. I chose Porphyria’s because there’s both differences and similarities. Thank goodness for Stacey Raey, Mr Salles and Mr Bruff!

What text did you study, I did An Inspector Calls?

I did the Shelia one, the selfishness one was too broad in my opinion. Which one did you do? Probably wasn’t as bad as you thought it was :-)

I did Romeo and Juliet and the question was nice, ACC was meh, I felt like I just told the plot. Think I put too many irrelevant quotes....

I did the Shelia one, I personally think the selfishness one would be the harder out the two. I was also thinking about doing WWTP, but I thought I could write more about P’s Lover. Did you like the question? :-)

I thought the unseen was GREAT, really enjoyed it! I also did the Shelia question and I agree with you, I thought there was more to write about! I have heard some other people say they compared it to sonnet29, which I think is a good comparison. Hope it has gone well for you and I you luck in your other exams :-)!
