This podcast supports an essay written by year 10, studying the Edexcel English Literature Certificate (IGCSE): “Do you think that either Beatrice or Benedick has the upper hand in their “merry war”? Are they equally matched? Consider Acts 1.1, 2.1&3, 4.1 and 5.4 in your answer.”
The long title is deliberately slightly differentiated by suggesting scenes to use in the response and should encourage students to build evaluation into the essay. The recording focuses on pointing out common errors of exam writing and also suggests a path which could be followed to gain marks in this essay.
