Hiya,
Out of all my papers for English I am the least confident with the Twelfth Night section. I find that when I plan essays I tend to be stuck at around Level 3/4 and need to be in the top band (level 5). Does anyone have any exemplar essays for twelfth night I could read or any revision help? :smile:


I know the exam is today, cause I'm doing it, but I used these links:

I really hope they do a main character question I think Andrew would be so limited

Town vs Country would focus on Jack and Earnest, the scenery, and Cecily v Gwendolyn.
I would love if I got the carnivalesque (festival comedy) type of question.

the questions are meant to be less narrow then last year so hopefully won't get the 'town v. country' question lol, I would LOVE Orsino to come up that's what im praying for

I think I liked it😂😂 it was weird fun but only the twelfth night question. I did no. 16 about clothing and costumes and I found it hard but like it started progessing.

omg I hated the clothing question, I loved the shifting moods question but was surprised that they didn't do a solid theme or character

Me too! Likevirtually all the questions for papers have a theme or a character. Not that much about mood/atmosphere or clothing.
