How did everyone find the English AQA GCSE Unit 2 exam?

Showing 26 to 35 of 35

I did quickdraw and sonnet 43 and felt they were really good to compare :)

The unseen was alright, and I guess quite simple techniques to identify?

yeah i'm relying on my Controlled Assessment to boost up my overall grade too! :) I'm quite happy that the C.A mark is 25% of the overall grade, Unit 1 is 40% and Unit 2 is 35% (i think...)

So I completely messed up on this paper and decided (I don't know what possessed me!) to compare QuickDraw with brothers (!)...I've written a decent analysis of both poems and an okay comparison- but how badly do you think I'd be marked down for picking a bad poem? X

I compared the same two and said the same sort of things as you, so long as you've explained your reasons well and compared the two, you'll do fine i'm sure!

Ah same!

I thought it was okay as I practiced that exact question in a revision session in the morning!

I compared Quickdraw to Sister Maude but I know I did rubbish because I forgot the layout of how to answer it as I was panicking so much!

Also I think that the unseen poem was horrible, i had to make so much stuff up! :'(

i did the relationships cluster...and but chose the other question...and compared Praise song for my mother with Harmonium :D it was ok...but i know it wasnt good...so i am just hoping for the best...

one of my friends did Quickdraw with the Manhunt...she really liked writing about it..

omg thats exactly the same as me! i did praise song and compared it to harmonium but im scared that i didnt actually properly compare them! loads of my friends did quickdraw and manhunt and i really wish i did that now :( ah well ***

i wish i had revised more so i actually remembered more of the comparison to be honest :/ i dont think i compared them strictly...i kind of just said this poem has personification...blah blah...ont he other hand the other poem has imagery...blah blah...the exam was such a haze... :( but i am hoping for the best xD **
