Unseen drama: I did the modern one, Q 1 + 2 wrote about two pages for each.
Studied drama: Juno and the Paycock. Q 1. Wrote about a page and a half but left it till second last, totally lost my A.
Unseen poetry: Did Q 1 + 2, was delighted with it. Wrote about 4 pages. Interpreted everything well I think (:
Studied poetry: Mushrooms- Sylvia Plath. Left it till last. Did Q 2 for time keeping - I left it till I had ten minutes left! D: Only wrote about a paragraph, immensely disappointed..
Unseen fiction: Did really well. Q 1 + 2. Wrote a good 4 pages and totally gave out about Sam!
Studied fiction: To Kill A Mockingbird. Q 2. Was very time conscious. Didn't do
as well as I could have. About two pages.

Overall, I was disappointed with my paper. I had done brilliantly in PAper I, and my poor time management, lost me the A..

I saw yer exam now
The GAA media studies question was actually a really lovely question.
And yer studied poetry (the 2nd one) was really nice too. Handy 30 marker if you could talk about the imagery and techniques of a poem.

Way better than my paper last year. Must admit.

Did anyone else notice for the unseen fiction that all the questions spelled his name Tony Hawke and in the extract it was Tony Hawk??
Wasn't really a big deal...but I still had to point it out to everyone else in the room!!

I never actually noticed but I was kind of thinking to myself when I was answering the questions "shouldn't his name have an e on the end?"
