English Edexcel A Level othello

Hi All :smile:
I was wondering if anyone had access to any full mark Othello essays from the Edexcel exam board?
- Including critics
Or if anyone had any tips/examples of how to imbed critics and authorial intent into their essays it would be much appreciated :smile:
i’d say the most important part about critics is that they are integrated throughout your answer, and that they lead you to giving your own critical opinion (actually engage with them). you don’t need to name 1000 critics in one essay, as long as you’re writing about them well. don’t just mention a name once and never come back to it in that paragraph. also make links between your ao1, ao2 and ao5 as by doing this, you’re gaining marks in other ao’s, whilst also integrating ao5 throughout ur answer
