    I just hope part B has a character to talk about, like Crooks and racism for example. Sadly, if it is Curley or Slim, I can't see it being related to them as there isn't really any ideas within their characters in which you can compare to America at the time.

    I suspect this is the reason they haven't come up yet.. maybe they won't because of this.

    When did Candy last come up? There could be a part B related to him.
    Candy last came up in January 2011 and parts a) and b) were about him

    What do you guys think then? Slim or Curley? - I'm hoping for Curley out of them two. Just hope it isn't a place such as the bunkhouse.

    Something about Aunt Clara's influence, I think I would have a mental breakdown.

    I revised Slim tonight and surprisingly there is a hell of a lot to write about him, I'd probably hope for Slim over Curley at the moment. I'm unsure on how you can not know who Slim is, he is a key figure within the ranch, often described as the prince of the ranch. Of Mice and Men would be a different book without Slims influence.

    Fairly certain we will get Slim or Curley.

    morning all

    my teacher gave me a list of stuff that will come up: Slim, Curley, Dreams, Loneliness

    she said that these are the most probable things we will be tested on.

    so thats what i am mainly going to be learning.


    anywho, to be honest you dont need to revise OMAM seeing as the question will be giving you a section of text for you to analyse. everything you need to write about will be in the text so it doesnt matter.

    only for the part b question should you read over it.

    real quick, how long should i spend on writing this essay question? 30 mins right???

    cheers fellas

    You spend 45 minutes on Section A, and then another 45 minutes on Section B but this section includes 2 questions - one on extract, one on context. So ideally you should split it 22.5 mins on each, but it's more likely that you'll spend longer on the extract since you will not have planned a response to it beforehand like you should for the possible context questions such as Curley etc.

    for section a, there are 2 questions, so i get to pick the one i answer. simple enough, though come the exam i will probably have a house built up underneath my chair with all the bricks that were s*at!!!

    for the section b there are 2 questions, a and b.

    question a, you are given a section of text, that you have to analyse. easy and simple enough

    question b, you are given a context question ie america in 30s, the roles of women etc. how do we plan for it? i assume just read over all themes????

    doesnt seem to hard then,

    cheers for the reply

    I have a feeling that it might be the friendship between Lennie and George - It hasn't come until June 2011 and AQA are very cunning; therefore, I believe that they may put this concept forward.

    How do people time the mice and men section of the exam? Equal times for part a and b or do you give more time to section b?
