    First, have you looked on websites like CliffNotes and Sparknotes as they are quite good for Of Mice and Men

    Yeah, they summarise the story. I used it when our homework was to read the book but I'm lazy ofc. Alright , I'll give you some quotes.

    Yeah that's what I used to think. You're not getting my point. I'm saying you need little revision to actually get an A* at gcse, especially in eg English lit and maths

    Listen. It is worth doing it for your future. You say you have nothing to be proud of, but if your target is 8A*s and 3As that would signify to me a high achiever who should be immensely proud of their academic record. Keep your head up.

    english lit...........

    I'm awful at english, by far my worst. Maths I can get an A* right now. I practice it everyday, constantly since i was young. It's the one subject my friends actually ask me for help rather than me ask them for help.

    Advice for english lit?

    gimme a formula on how to get an A* on it..

    Yeah they do summarise it, but I suppose you need specifics

    For the first quote it shows how he has been isolated from the rest of the ranch hands and is deemed unworthy to have the same sleeping quarters as the others (you could relate this to historical context by talking about racism in society).

    Second quote - shows how no matter how much he tries to make it cosy and home-like, it will always be second class and nothing better than where the horses sleep.

    Third quote - His health is not anymore important than that of the animals and his priorities lie in caring for animals, as his job, rather than his own health. However, this is more throuh livelihood, rather than choice.

    Final quote - His living area is a working room too. Everywhere we look there are items realting to his work and he cannot escape this inevitability. The contents of his room shows some of the skills needed to work on a rach at that time.

    I really hope this helps you - obviously these are only the way I interpret it so you may feel differently about them but its a start

    why would I bother, if i do well ,my parents get to boast about it. I hate them, I don't want them to get any gains from me. They will show me off like an item, be like, this is the kinda kid I made. When they put me down and make me feel crap.

    Secondly, I go to a grammar school full of rich snobs that are smart,sporty, good- lets not go there. How do I compete with these guys when im just a poor lazy fuwck from Asia :C
    This post just makes your thread look crap and hungry for attention.

    Thanks bruv! yeah ,this helps alot. To get a top band answer, you need to give multiple views on quotes. I have my own views, and if I add this too, it's showing multiple understandings of the text. Thanks, i'm gonna actually crack on and write up an essay. It'll be done in about an hour, if your online, could you possibly proof read and improve it ? Thanks once again.

    Literally pick out short quotes, make a point and make like two other alternative interpretations with detail. You can link it to other parts of whatever you're analysing. Basically just b*llshit your way through to an A* lol

    I have never heard of anyone who doesn't bother to get their grades because of their parents showing them off. That's an absolutely ridiculous reason not to try.

    Glad I can be of use to you - and yeah if I am online I will - just to let you know though I might be in bed because I am absolutely knackered. Do you go online before school like 7 ish? Because I am online from 6:30 if I ain't online later

    One of many.

    I'm not going to give my personal reasons for why I don't want to try. Sorry if yo had an easy option where stuff gets served to you rather than going to get it.


    We all have different reasons.

    Just cos you never heard it ,doesn't mean it's wrong?

    First guy to say the Earth was a sphere got killed. Absolutely ridiculous.

    Thank you.

    I'm not really gonna respond to your response unless it's somehow helpful....
