How would you have done in today's English Paper 2?

Most students were pretty happy with it but would you remember enough to tackle these questions?

LEAVING CERTIFICATE STUDENTS were relatively happy with today’s English Paper 2, with most describing it as “fair” afterwards.

Luke Saunders of Studyclix said everyone was surprised to see Heaney appear on paper one yesterday but there was another shock in store today when he appeared again, this time in the unseen poetry section”.

However he said most students were happy with the choice available as Larkin, Yeats, Dickinson and Plath all featured.

Of those students surveyed on Studyclix, 78 per cent described today’s paper two as “fair” with the rest describing it as “difficult” or “extremely difficult”.

But we want to know how you think you’d have managed it today. Here’s the full Higher Level paper. Bonus marks for attempting an answer in the comments section below.
