I was very surprised that we didnt have to write an article or interview or the like... I wasnt too happy with the poetry question, I actually think it was easy because it wanted you to concentrate on techniques, but I planned to concentrate on Owen's underlying critique of war, so my essay is all over the place :/
But I'm glad its over, I can chuck all my english stuff now :)

That was the easiest English exam I've ever had lol. But uhh still managed to kind of stuff up my third essay because I was running out of time, still had quite alot of info but didn't really get to the point.

Think I creamed that poetry essay, couldn't have asked for a better question...

Meh, my third essay was ruined because of time and hand cramps. :rofl: But 3 pages is sad. :(

The first two essays were good though, 8 pages each. I can never write that much. :D

Loved it, as much as you can love english. SOoooo much easier than paper 1. Simple, no twists, easy as. Though other people at school didn't like it as much as the first, what's with them??????

I reckon I failed.

I did ok in the first 2 sections but in the 3rd I was already tired. So I just did nothing but bullshit the whole way through. =[

xD

Pretty easy exam. First two essays were prepared essays. Modified the third for Raw a little. Got 29 pages out. So, pretty happy. Heres to hoping for a band 5.

I did The Truman Show and Wilfred Owen and I found the questions to be perfect for what I had studied. A friend of mine studied Raw and she had no complaints either. Maybe your strongest point was just journeys?

That was easy, i couldnt believe it and there was no stupid speeches or interviews etc which made it even better. the raw question and dialogue question where both very easy. witness was a pritty easy question aswell they where all very general questions which made them easy.

I didn't think that it was too hard...Raw was definately the hardest so i did that first but wasted wayyyyyyy too much time and ended up only having an hour for Stolen and Witness so i didn't end up finishing witness :(
I thought that paper 1 was better...i was definately more prepared 4 journeys.
