It probably is gonna be on the ghost of maybe some point in Act 1 Scene 2. No clue what it could be though

I hope they do Hamlet's first soliloquy if it's act 1, scene 2, that would probably be too nice a question though.

if they want to be mean, act 1 scene 1 would be quite bad haha

The soliloquy would be too nice so I don't think they would
But then again we are the covid year so who knows...
Act 1 scene 4 would ve bad too
If they do the ghost they better do something from scene 5

There’s a paper 2 chat for ocr a level english lit as well btw so there could be more info there I would just focus heavily on context for Gatsby and grapes as that’s the dominant AO and ofc know your texts as well as you can.

Hamlet Part B could be state of Denmark maybe! I’m thinking maybe something about the ghost betraying hamlet (by giving him this mission), or just the supernatural in general or family and revenge.

Hopefully Hamlet part b is on revenge - I personally think that's the best one to argue for and against.

Also, do you have a link to the paper 2 chat by any chance?

I don't mind too much as long as it is a loose theme that's easy to talk about haha, but revenge would be good! A character-specific question might be a bit hard though.

Oh I hope it's not character specific, especially as we don't have an option to choose a theme for that question

I hate the grade boundaries too, they're horrible. I was figuring out how much I can get since I know my coursework marks and I know I won't get the top grades, even if I get 100% in both papers
