    Would the exam board do a full question on whit or carlson for OMAM? i don't know whether to revise them fully or not?
    The full questions tend to allow you to open up to the whole novel, so no as they rarely feature.

    Yes, my teacher thinks Curley, either the passage where he first comes in to meet G&L or where he gets his hand crushed by Lennie. Also heard that it could be on Candy?

    For AIC, I'm hoping that social class comes up, tension or social responsibility? then my teacher has predicted Sheila for a character!
    What grade are you aiming for?
    I am aiming for at least an A but my teacher is confident and hopes I get an A*. What about you?

    Out of interest why are people predicting Sheila? Hasn't she come up twice in the past five years? When did she last come up? Inspector hasn't come up in the past five am I right? Also do people think there is any chance of age coming up as a theme in AIS? It's never come up before and I didn't really know it was a theme but bitesize etc claim it's a theme? Thanks

    I'm pretty good at poetry (I'm predicted an A* on the poetry paper) so I'd be more than happy to help you!

    Well done! I got an A* too, so hopefully we can both also get them in the real exam! It's 25% c/a and 75% exam. I'm not sure how the texts exam and poetry exam divide into that 75%? My only guess would be 40% texts, 35% poetry? Does anyone know?

    For OMAM everyone is saying it will be Curley/Candy. I don't disagree with that but I just feel like part b is more likely to be a theme (i.e. american dream/lonliness/masculinity). My teacher thinks it might be relationships but that's stupid because it came up in 2014

    Hi is anyone else really stuck on The crucible. I have no idea how to revise!! I am freaking out I need an A*!! Anyone have any tips?
    Hey I'm doing The Crucible too! Right now i'm just doing a plan of 4 points with quotations for each character as I will probably do the character question. Just look over some sample answers and practise writing paragraphs in timed conditions. Do you have any predictions for what will come up?

    Poppies
    Charge of the light b
    Falling Leaves
    Futility
    Belfast Confetti

    This teacher at my school predicted these and he has always got one right every year. Fingers crossed he gets one/two of these right this year

    I studied Character and Voice but if it's any help, I could show you a comparison I did to give you an idea of how to go about structuring an answer?

    Also to revise I do just that, practicing comparing poems and having a go at unseen poetry questions. I also try to brush up on the key themes of each poem .
    hiya,
    could you please post/ send me your comparison as I'm doing character and voice too and find it hard to do the comparisons.
    thanks in advance
