    I did the conflict one, although I only had time to write 3 points (upper + middle classes vs working class, older generation vs younger generation and Sheila vs Gerald)
    I only wrote 3 points. upper vs middle, socialism vs capitalism (started a political rant whoops) and family tensions

    does anyone have a prediction for the highest mark out of 30 possible for someone whose 2/3 points were not relevant?
    they positively mark. so if you did all of the right things, and a few random points (that weren't incorrect but weren't relevant) you will be fine

    points i included in the OMAM passage:

    wind blows the leaves- showing disruption to george and lennie's dream
    shakily- he is frightened to shoot lennie but also devastated as he is losing his best friend
    dutifully- lennie is oblivious to what is happening and still obeys george
    reference to lennies head- earlier in the book it mentions the back of the head is the least painful place - george is caring
    darkening slope- conceptual metaphor showing a bad atmosphere and evil
    valleys are becoming 'bluer'- george is doing the right thing and things will improve for him (not sure about this?)

    Are these good points? I missed out good ones that i highlighted such as the evening showing the end of the day and the end of life etc. i also missed the part about snapping the safety on the gun, as this would have made a good point

    Out of interest, did anyone do Whit for Part (b) in OMAM? He represents those people without dreams or ambitions during the 1930s.

    Yeah i kind of did the same thing oops. I guess as long as you justified why Mayella is a victim as well as the others you should get some marks. That's what i'm hoping for at least.
    did you do foundation or higher

    went absolutely awfully AIC was ok but OMAM was terrible! I only did one paragraph for the extract and then failed to answer the question properly for the second part. bye bye a*

    I chose the conflict question for AIC oh my lord it was beautiful. I wrote like 3 pages on the Inspector's closing monologue. It was so detailed. Like I was analysing the word 'and' type of detailed. OMAM was questionable. I see where they were trying to link to with part b but it was actually a flop. They didn't even pick the good part of the extract to analyse, if you're going to talk about section 6, use the beginning of section 6 with all the description. I ran out of time, I just about did 2 paragraphs for each but the last one was clearly rushed.

    I did OMAM and AIC. I feel like I'm one of the very few people that chose the conflict question for AIC but I mentioned things like socialist and capitalist views and conflict between the social classes but I forgot to mention the fire blood and anguish quote and how they are harsh words and relate to conflict For OMAM I feel like I didn't do enough single word analysis but I read on the mark scheme for last year that you can include mentions of structure and/or language. I'm not sure if that means you can mention just structure and you'll be ok.. Anyone have any ideas?

    I did Q17 which was the AIC Sheila & Gerald relationship. I found this question okay but I spent 10 minutes extra on it than I should've had so didn't have a lot of time to do the Section B OMAM questions properly. The extract given was hard to explain how the build up to Lennie's death is predicted but I liked the part B question about dreams. I wrote about Crooks' dream of equality, was also going to write about Curley's wife's dream of being in the "pitchers" but ran out of time. didn't write much about the extract though :/

    I think that I went off topic and didn't answer the question properly for the TKAMB 'to what extent is Mayella a victim?' can someone just look at my 3 points:
    1) Mayella as victim
    2) boo radley is also presented as a victim
    3) tom robinson is also a victim

    I think I read the question as 'to what extent is Mayella the victim in TKAMB?'

    does anyone know how much marks go towards answering the question because i think my analysis was decent
    What exam board are you on?

    I did the conflict question for an Inspector Calls. Decent, took me 45 minutes, 1 and 3/4 sides (I have tiny handwriting).

    The Of Mice and Men question I predicted correctly before the exam, so that was a joy to write about. Took me 25 minutes then 20 minutes for part b. Again, just below 2 sides.
