[Enter Duke Frederick, with Lords] Duke Frederick: Mistress, dispatch you with your safest haste, And get you from our court.

[3] (iv) What names do Rosalind and Celia assume for their stay in the forest? Why do they decide to travel in disguise? (v) [3] Provide four instances from the play that highlight the bond of affection between Rosalind and Celia. [4] Examiners Comments (i) Most candidates wrote incorrect answers for the number of days (10 days) and distance (20 miles) and missed out on the threat (of being killed). (ii) In the first part of the question many candidates wrote that the Duke sentenced Rosalind because she was in love with Orlando who was the son of his enemy. Instead of writing that she was a traitor, others wrote cheater , tyrant , wicked person . (iii) Most candidates did not understand the phrase poison Celia s mind . Some wrote that the Duke filled Celia s mind with negative 13 Suggestions for teachers - - Importance of textual detail should be stressed such as (in this case) emphasis on numbers and distance, with emphasis on the correct spelling of proper nouns. Guide students to avoid studying from a text that contains the paraphrase of the play. Encourage the class to act out important scenes. This will be a big help in remembering the dialogue. Revise each scene, work out answers. Attach due importance to every scene.
