The synoptic being the one that can't really be spoonfed... :p:
Exactly!
It's driving me nuts. We did do some vaguely contexty bits today, though.
I'm sort of looking forward to my synoptic, but only because if all goes well I should only actually need about 25/120 on it to get an A overall, so I can relax a bit in it. Thank god that I can, too, I have a 2 1/2 composition exam in the afternoon after it.

Argh - five hours of exams!

The synoptic is fine if you have a system. For question one, you need to know poetic techniques. For question two, you need to include gender, placement, age, influence, purpose and relate your wider reading to the given extracts. It's fantastic because you can plan your conclusion and introduction before you go in. I wish I could do that twice instead of doing Othello and Keats, doing research off your own back is more fun.

Oh God, yes. Shakespeare can stand up to it, and poetry needs to be done like that, but when the book isn't even that good (The Handmiad's Tale, <coughcough>) then it's just plain awful.
Particularly if you teacher insists on spoon-feeding comments on language throughout the entirity of a play that we actually don't have to make many language comments on.
Total teaching time of language = many lessons
Total teaching time of any literary context, examination of themes, historical context, comparison to other works by playwright = no lessons.

alex -
*thankful his English UMS mark is high enough to be able to coast through his synoptic paper*
I've actually really enjoyed my synoptic paper precisely because I've done most of it myself. It's the gothic, so I've got to read loads of fun(ny) books and watch loads of great films, and make my own decisions. I've even picked Rebecca (Daphne du Maurier, one of my favourite books!) as my supplementary text. Most of our going through Frankenstein i could ignore though, precisely because it consisted of my crazy irish teacher reading out passages and saying "gothic" emphatically. But hopefully i can coast it too!

I do AQA, so our synoptic paper is based on pre-release material that we get a few days before the exam…not as fun as Gothic novels lol! Justin – ouch, that’s a long drive, but be heartened by the fact that at least the little Year 5 kid next to you doesn’t try to imitate a mobile ring…I’m serious :eek: (anyone know the Nokia ring that sounds like a toddler laughing?)

Ah.... school buses. Happy days - having fruit sald poured down my neck by my 'friend', watching same 'friend' have head glued to seat, opening emergency door at 30mph, getting lost and spending hours in a housing estate trying to get out, my sister being called as a witness when the driver was done for speeding, crashing into railings going round a corner, and quite a lot of RUNNING VERY FAST!!!
