    what do you mean by ''short stories''? do you mean extracts or something else?

    Oh goodness, you poor thing! I had to do those stories too!!! Have you checked out mr bruff??? He has videos on the short stories and they really help with the analysis, especially more contextual and unusual interpretations of the texts! Also, make summaries of each text making notes on key themes/motifs, interesting language analysis, structural points, character etc... So you know these and whatever the question you can easily plan your essay based on these. Make similar notes for of mice and men, focus on characters, setting and context especially as these are the questions you will typically be asked in the exam. Hope this helps and good luck!
