    I am doing my contolled assesment in two weeks, we're doing Shakespeare too.

    What are you worried about regarding an inspector calls? We did it last year and I think it's quite straightforward regarding the concepts and the context of the story, it's definitely not as hard as The Crucible.
    The Crucible is definitely harder, I'm doing that and TKAM haha

    I think there is a possibility; I've only revised Candy, Curley and Crooks so far. I'm going to prioritise AIC at this point since at least for part a of OMAM you have an extract to pick out info from. Are you ready? I'm so unprepared :/

    For section A of the Unit 1 exam (in my case, "An Inspector Calls"), do you not need social, historical, cultural info in your answer?
    The mark scheme does not give credit for A04 which is contextual knowledge. So no it's not necessary to include it in your answer as you won't get any additional marks however you might want to mention it whilst explaining a point as it could strengthen your argument?

    I re-read the books, then made spider diagrams with key descriptive words explain each character and have done a couple of PEE's analysing quotes but don't think I'll ever be prepared, I guess if you give alternate interpretations and close word analysis' in a thoughtful way it will be okay. I'm sure it will be okay! what about yourself?

    Also so you don't really need to mention context for Section A (AIC) but you should mention it for Section B (OMAM)?

    I'm mostly prepared for AIC, though I am stressing over OMAM. I should have re-read the book we haven't read it collectively as a school for over a year! I am so silly - I think I will find quotes reflecting themes for OMAM only now as I will be referring to the extract mostly in part a anyway. I'm predicted A* though doubt I will get that now lol

    does this mean OMAM question 2015 higher will be lonliness and candy most likely?
    (Original post by _ariane29)


    Here you go everyone. :itsme:I'm really skeptical about this hypothesis someone proposed, it has seemed to work in the past but this question (part a) Is very similar to last years higher question, but please don't rely on this. (Foundation 2014 OMAM AQA)
    :goodluck: to everyone sitting this exam

    For all of you who do not know, there is a pattern in the last few years exams, that means that the year before foundation question is always similar to the next years higher question. So this is the 2014 foundation question, meaning we could have a question similar to this this year

    I know so am I, I really really would like an A in this exam and in English overall? It took me under forty minutes to re-read both books so it is well worth it! Don't worry!
