“How does Shakespeare present the ways in which Tybalt’s hatred of the Capulets influences the outcome of the play?”
Fucking hell, education is weird, isn’t it?
I’m so glad I’m not at school any more.
all those twats there saying how shocked and let down they feel.
I’ve got more culture in my left testicle than all of them put together.
might wanna see a doctor about that, mate
sounds like a good question to me.
what did they ask in your day?
They asked questions like that.
I just mean: FUCK THAT. It just makes me so glad I don’t have to consider this sort of bullshit any more.
I take it you were a maths nerd?
Wasn’t really much good at anything.
Exam questions are all just fucking stupid, really. That is just a great example of the sort of question no one wants to have to answer.
I would have panicked so hard if that happened to me, bless them
if I may be a wanker for a second, I really liked those sort of questions, examining the themes and meta narratives of shit.
Oh well fair enough.
I like stories, I really hate analysing them.
I heard they had to call off the exam because everyone was rolling in the aisles with laughter
there’s a time and place for sure.
so who is going to post the first shakespeare pun here?
Similar thing happened in my GCSE English exam, a poem was misprinted so it missed the last two stanzas. Spent ages writing about how the poet deliberately left it ambiguous and without resolution, which of course wasn’t actually the case.
So what were everyone’s GSCE English/Lit texts?
Lord of the Flies, Macbeth and the works of Seamus Heaney for me.
- Romeo & Juliet
- To Kill A Mockingbird
- Lord of the Flies
- An Inspector Calls
- Jekyll and Hyde
- Blood Brothers
- Jane Eyre
- Pride & Prejudice
- History Boys
- Animal Farm
- Other (State)
that’s way more of a balls up though
