Othello question was terrible, unseen poetry was good, I had to link Gatsby and poetry, it went alright but it could go either way

The Measure for Measure question was horrendous, the unseen poetry about motherly love great! And Gatsby and pre-1900 poetry I did the time option. Same, could go either way

The Winter's Tale extract question was bad and difficult to link strong points to the extract. The poetry was simple but had no complex points to discuss or prove your ability with which was limiting and the Gatsby time question was pretty decent. Could've gone a lot better if they had done a better job with the questions in my opinion

Yeah, the questions were crap, really hoping the grade boundaries are lowered

I thought Othello was not too bad but now that I'm looking back at it, I could have accessed more marks if it was theme or about Othello, Desdemona/Emilia or Iago, I didn't even include any quotes from other Acts! What were your main points for it? I didn't even get onto my other 2 texts...

I never even attempted my other texts caused a semi-panicked! Yeah same! Talked about Desdemona and her marriage to Othello, wasn't really answering the question, most of the time I was zoning out when I was writing. I argued that it may be other factors such as misunderstanding though other than jealousy, pride and possessiveness.
