    Is everyone sure that we were meant to write about the characters with the most importance? I only wrote about Curley's wife, Crooks, Slim and how Steinbeck uses nature
    Is this right?

    Can I make a recommendation that we change the subject to poetry? We seem to work very well together, and today's exam is in the past; there's not much point in discussing it. It's likely that we all did a little bit better in the exam because of this thread, so let's use this again to our advantage for Thursday's exam.If you absolutely must talk about the Unit 1 exam then start a new thread, this one should now be dedicated to getting everyone prepared for poetry!
    I like this idea, but mightn't I be easier to just make a new 'part Two' thread for poetry? I think it'd be nice to not have to trawl through 100 pages of Unit 1 stuff.

    YES! I thought it was on about the language a Priestley used for the ending and throughout the play :'( Do you think it will still get marked?
    pretty sure you will, they wont give you 0 as you are still partially answering the question... i went off topic for it quite a bit aswell :/ i
