4 (tThe Crucible)and 12 (Death of a Naturalist). The two ideal questions I could have got.
I've done both of them in calss already and did decently in them. Although I might have messed up slightly, not sure if my analysis was sufficent.

4 - R&J
13 - Disabled

13 is the childhood one. I'm walking a fine line there.

As for people who did R&J in 4... what was the theme or whatever it was that you chose?

I chose something about the influence that the feud had beyond itself. Completely made that up on the spot, but it worked well.

My friend did 6 pages for one essay, and 3 for another.

My writing with usual A4 paper is roughly 16 words per line, in exams. It gets smaller for exams. I don't know whether the bigger lines affected this. Hopefully not, as I did two full pages for each. No more, no less.
Signatures suck. They clog up websites and serve no purpose.

I almost don't want to say this but.. 12 for 'Assisi' (yeah I know I've probably failed that) and 5 for 'The Inheritors', which wasn't quite so bad.

8 for Ethan Frome about the loss of the pickle dish when it broke, and how that ended up symbolising the break up of Ethan/Zeena's marriage. T'was a tough question but I felt that I nailed it.

12 for The Almond Tree, but I just don't think my analysis was good enough, so I can't be too hopeful there.

8 - The Cone Gatherers

and Juno and the Paycock - character with flaws question.

My answer for 8 was either not relevent or at A level I think.
