    Does anyone have any comments about the AQA English Lit (spec B) exam today? In common with others, our students had poor results in the summer for no apparant reason. They were all resitting today. We thought the Section B questions were difficult and not what we were expecting.

    If you look at the David Lodge book, The Art of Fiction, you'll see that just about all of the questions asked so far relate very closely to the chapter titles! There's a fair few to go, so might be worth just looking at the contents page on Amazon for ideas for future teaching focus...!

    Thanks for the tip - I'll dust my copy off!
     
  6. Thought the Great Expectations question was a gift.
    Section B was dreadful,' genres' somewhat better than 'names', but two of mine did 'names' and quite liked it.

    Anyone think they might be running out of questions? Curious incident same as a couple of years ago.
