Mr Chatterley has kindly provided the definitions of the AO's in the previous blog, as for the structure we were told that Section A of the paper would be separated into two parts e.g. Aa and Ab.
Section Aa focuses on AO2 and you should spend a maximum of 30 minutes on it.
Due to the fact that this section only looks at language, structure and form, you should try to avoid going into things such as social historical context and attempt to focus only on AO2. Also even if the examiners say that AO1 is not being tested, you should obviously attempt to write in a manner which makes you stand out from the common A level English student.
Section Ab focuses on AO3 and A04 and you should also spend 30 minutes on it.
You must remember that if you pick a poet/author to answer a question on in section A, then you cannot use the same author/poet for section B.
Section B compares AO1, 2 and 3. You will have an hour to do this section. In this section you will answer a single question (that you choose) on the three remaining writers.
We ended the lesson by completing a sheet on features of a Modern Novel and how it applies to Enduring love using relevant chapters and quotations as evidence. This really helps us understand the novel itself and will help you in the exam so if you do not have the sheet, ask Mr Chatterley.
- Complete analysis sheet of Enduring love.
- Finish features of a Modern novel sheet if it is incomplete
Due Wednesday 9th February
