    hi x the 10 marker was about a text analysis of the part where George finds Curleys wife's corpse, up to the part where he leaves the barn. The question was a character analysis about how George revealing his character in the text. The twenty markers were about a) how join Steinbeck uses lennies character to highlight aspects of American society in the 1930s b) "real friendship is impossible in the harsh society that john Steinbeck created" discuss this statement IT WAS HORRIBLE BUT HERE ARE THE QUESTIONS XXX
    Thank you so much! Omg okay a lot of context there then - the Lennie one sounds rlly similar to the candy one that came up last year!

    Hahahah what is it with the WJEC and prostitution in their poetry? I did the paper last year and apparently the poem 'city lilacs' was about prostitution although I had no clue of that at the time😂

    Ugh. I revise Slim devoutly and we get Lennie... I screwed that up. I should've picked the theme but I only realised this halfway through :-(

    The poems weren't TOO bad but I think I was too timid (I thought it might be about prostitution for the Cardigan one, like City Lilacs, but...) and floundered a little for similarities.

    I got the timings totally perfect though :-)

    I only put in a few similarities - don't worry, if your differences are good then it's okay. I said Auntie Jane Fish was good at and devoted to her job (as opposed to the salesman who was bad at and disliked his job) :-)

    Thanks! Ive just remembered i did one similarity but thats all! I said the same as you that she was good at and devoted to her job while the other wasn't. Hopefully it went alright.

    @Farnosh. I think it went OK actually! Luckily I was prepared for all the characters, but was really really hoping for Slim. Ah well, what will be will be. How about you?
