    Also, how many points do you have to make in the extract q and whats the structure for the unseen poetry essay response??
    There isn't a specific structure apart from to just go through it chronologically as far as I know.

    You should ideally make 10-12 points for the extract question.

    & go through emotions, objects and verbs in each of the poems and then if there are any similarities/differences compare them

    Somebody on the thread said that Curley's wife had come up as an essay question on the Jan 2015 paper, but the papers haven't been published on WJEC's website so nobody really knows if that's true or not. That's why it's rumoured. I'd revise her just in case. But a lot of the answers to your questions are already on the thread - just read through the pages
    I took the exam in January, so I'm certain it was Curley's Wife

    Hey, I noticed earlier that you said you hadn't learned any quotes. Neither have I. While I can certainly acknowledge that this situation is incredibly stressful, probably the best thing we can do for ourselves is to try and stay calm. If all else fails, we can reference the book and put quotation marks around it, and make some rubbish up that sounds intelligent and like 'original thought'. I know how you are feeling, it's rubbish, but at least if we're calm we actually have a chance of being clear headed enough to get lucky making stuff up.
    I know, I'm trying but after seeing all the changes I'm getting increasingly nervous and anxious. It doesn't help that I have an RS exam with quotes to remember tomorrow as well. Thanks for that, gave me a little bit of a wakeup call I guess. Good luck

    It's hard. You're trying your best, well done for that. A botched English exam isn't the end of the world - what doesn't kill us makes us stronger I guess?

    I'm glad to have helped. Good luck to you too, for both your exams. Make sure you get plenty of rest tonight.

    Thanks, you too. I guess you're right, I'm not even taking literature A-Level! Damn right, thanks!

    same goes to Candy ! how the **** am i supposed to write a 20 mark about him, someone help , what are the main things i can say 4 paragraphs
    Candy and his dog parallel the relationship of George andLennie. Like Candy's dog, Lennie depends on George to take care of him and show him what to do. Candy, like George, is different from the other ranch hands because he has his dog as a constant companion, someone devoted and loyal to him. When the unfeeling Carlson suggests that Candy's dog be put out of its misery, Candy abdicates the responsibility to Carlson. He tells George later that he should have shot his dog himself, foreshadowing George's decision to take responsibility for Lennie's death.

    Also, does anyone have any good quotes for George and Lennie? They're unlikely to come up for the essay question but I'd like some just to be sure

    When George is trying to get the dead mouse back from Lennie he snaps his fingers "sharply" and Lennie is described as a "terrier who doesn't want to bring a ball back to its master" - that's quite a good representation of their relationship
    Also it's said that "one followed behind the other" (Lennie behind George)
    That's all I can think of off the top of my head - I've hardly looked at it as I doubt it'll come up

    Some people are saying two themes are going to come up this year but in every other year one character question has come up. Some of the quotes that can be used for characters can be used for themes too so even if two themes come up I'm sure you'll be okay

    Candy or Slim. Curley's wife ruled out because she appeared jan 2015, and no-one thinks George is going to come up on its own, although I believe it's a possibility.
