I felt nervous when I woke up; Hirst's exam on Persuasion and the Miller plays began at nine and lasted an hour and a half. After doing those chapter summaries I felt quite confident in dealing with the question, “Persuasion is a study of family life. Discuss,” and reeled off a couple of sides. Then another half-an-hour before Paper III; I had an hour to answer a question on either prose or poetry. I was relieved to finish the English papers. Got a C or a D maybe.
I played tennis afterwards until five o’clock and spent the evening pretending to revise for History.
