I worked through the other sections pretty quickly, so i had extra time for module C. As a result i ended up doing 3 additional texts and writing 7 pages. 2 were poems tho, and they were related, but still - 3 =D. I just hope the examiners like them...
i did an article about Sarah Palin and Bristol Palin's pregnancy...but i had Web 2.0 as my other related material but didnt use it.....
i talked about all 6 episodes of frontline, but only 3 in specific detail, the other 3 were just quick mentions of quotes describing a concept or character
I did two and a half/three related texts, one was an editorial, one was a feature article, and one was a cartoon, so they weren't really content heavy or anything. My module was frontline, and I did two episodes for that...I got about twelve pages?
twelve pages of absolute bollocks.
I did the paper in order! I knocked of module A in about 30 mins, cause I was so freakishly prepared, but I didn't use the ten minutes wisely: I used it all on module B.
I'm dying for the rest of my exams to happen. I can't really study for anything else now that english is over.
I did two because I only realised that it said at least one halfway through the question (which I did first) and it was too late to change my essay plan. Besides, I love both my found texts and the link between them and the set. The question was pretty much exactly the same as a practise essay I had done and got 20/20 for, so I pretty much wrote the same essay xD I wrote the same amount as my practice essay, about 1200 words, and that was 7 pages. Either you all (people who wrote 12 pages) have huge writing, leave big gaps or are really, really fast writers, as my writing is not that small.
I used one related text for the Module C question. My elective was Telling The Truth. So I closely analysed two of Ted Hughes' poems ('Fulbright Scholars' and 'Sam') from the collection Birthday Letters which was our prescribed text. The related text I chose was 'Whiteness I Remember' by Sylvia Plath (Ted Hughes' wife who committed suicide). I wrote 7 pages for the question.
