    I thought they were pretty lenient with the question.

    Did you end up having to write a speech or letter?

    Wilfred Owen mod B had the words "sensory images" and "unsettling". Does that mean we couldn't talk about form/structure and solely needed to focus on sensory images created?

    Not sure what you mean by this, but we didn't need to write a speech or letter.

    It's specified on the front cover of exams + apparently it reads easier after the paper's been scanned.

    Module b was a mess. Mod A exploring transitions was hella easy (something about transitions leading to deeper understandings of self and others) and Mod A was alright, since the question was somewhat similar to the distinctive voices question in my trial exam

    Of course not, the question asked us to "discuss this statement". So you had to provide arguments for and against.

    It's okay blue can still be scanned. How do you think they scan people's pencil graphs in maths?!?!

    I think discuss is for and/or against
