    I'm doing the same exams. I don't know about the poems exam but I know the only two characters not to have come up for OMAM are Curley and Slim and for AIC Eric hasn't come up yet. If this helps.

    I think that 'To His Coy Mistress', 'Born yesterday' and 'Ghazal' are the most likely ones. What do you think?

    There is virtually no chance of 'Hour' or 'The Farmer's Bride' coming up since they came up last series.

    So for Of Mice and Men if Slim and Curley haven't come up, the style of question is probably going to be "How does Steinbeck use character x present ideas about the 1930's" and for Slim and Curley I'm finding it hard to find context for those two? Anyone have any ideas?

    I don't think they can link to context One year setting came up, about the bunkhouse I think. Considering that all the main characters that can link to context have come up, I'm expecting a setting question. Or maybe a repeat of a previous year, but the question is asking something different. Idk.
    In terms of context I don't think the American Dream has been asked...

    And if anyone has the questions for character and voice that came up in January, could you please post them

    That's so true because there isn't much to write about!! I guess we'll just have to wait and see, that's why exams are so annoying because there could be some random weird question like An Inspector Calls in June 2012 a passage came up which has never been done before so there is no formula to the type of questions that come up

    Hey,

    I'm doing An Inspector Calls, TKAM and the Character and Voice cluster.

    Does any one have any tips on how to revise, especially for TKAM as it is so long?? Also, any guesses about what will come up?

    Thanks

    In the poetry exam, do you get given 1 poem or 2? I thought you get given 1 and you get to choose the other, and then there is the unseen poem in section B?

    Yh that's right but in section a you can choose between two questions which ask you to compare a different poem.
