I actually found that statement so easy to link to, but I don't think I interlinked between texts enough. No matter.Mandy101 said:The Frontline question was the only one that threw me a little bit... I understood it and all, but 'selection and emphasis' was hard to manipulate my entire essay around. I think I did okay though.
I did Ted Hughes too, and the question is simple, to the central backbone of the issue, and there's lil problem in conveying the stuff, problem is the detail, not sure if i had enough, but i'm most satisfied with this answer.consty_87 said:I did Ted Hughes too, and thought it was great. The quote was so easy to manipulate, so there was no problem about where to go with it. I'm a bit of a slow writer, but I think I covered it in enough detail.
im a reguritator *looks down at floor in shame* i never think i remember anything until i walk in the exam and it just comes pouring out lol add a sentence here and there and bingo - prepepared answer which addresses the question though, i think i use the whole memorise - regurgitate system because it makes me more confident when i walk in - i already know everything im going to say so no thinking, just writing as fast as i possibly can!!!slinky_cumquat said:and damn right about those regurgitators!
rebecca05 said:I thought the powerplay question was crap. it had no relevance to the text we did at school - '1984'. My whole year struggled with it and the teachers, including the head of english thinks it was too hard. What the hell does selection and emphasis have to do with 1984? If our treachers dont know, and they are pretty good teachers, then how should we know? I have never seen such a bad question in an exam at all.
