Hello, everyone!

So, we’re in the midst of mocks, and I completed my English Literature paper earlier in the week (Julius Caesar and unseen poetry). However, it turns out that in my first paragraph of my Caesar response, I’ve mixed up Casca and Cicero - I also managed to get Calpurnia’s name completely wrong by referring to her as Portia subconsciously, and didn’t realise as such until far, far too late. I also did write about Cassius - thankfully, his name didn’t have any issues.

This is going to drive me mad if I don’t know this, but could anyone possibly tell me how many marks my daft mistake will cost me?

Thanks!

Generally speaking they will mark positively, but expect to lose quite a few marks from this.
Don't be expecting good marks (or A* level) from that section of the paper, but it shouldn't be a train-wreck.
