Yes I also did a theme question, and always talked about context especially during mocks which was then marked by my english lit teacher who is also an examiner and ended up with grade 9s. As long as you use judicious references such as individuals such as Sheila would have advocated on behalf of the 'young women' during the Suffragette movement.

Hope this helps

i really shyed away from the theme which was an easy question. what most teacher say is that for the theme question you need to add in characters which i had ideas for but forgot to add in. and not only that my quotes were in random places not "3 quotes in one paragraph."....

i think about 40% of the paper is marked on ao2 which is basically things u infer from the quotes/the text as a whole and around 15% is ao3 which is relevant contextual refernces. did u write any quotes in?

did you replace the writers method with anything like context or idea behind it?

The thing is I got so carried away with context thinking that it was more important but i find out after the test its 15% and a02 is 40% . if i had never used context i wouldve 100 % used writers methods. i dont know what to do now
