    hey, I dont understand anything about Curley- like what could I write about him when he comes up. As he isnt really a major character within the novel so I highly doubt he will come up on his own.

    Also, for An Inspector Calls I think that a question about the juxtaposition between Generations might come up. About how the older gen ( Mr and Mrs Birling) and stuck up in their own ways and are not willing to take any responsibility whereas the younger genereation ( Eric and Sheila) take responsibility and are remorseful.

    Or a question about Sheila might come up as I don't think she has come up before.

    I have a question about the poem 'Quickdraw,' why does Duffy use an ambiguous title?
    Hey, I have an idea about the title; 'quickdraw' is generally terminology for an old western stand-off. So, Duffy almost makes the poem a game of live and death, maybe saying the same about love itself.

    I'm doing The Crucible, Relationships and Of Mice And Men. So, we think Danforth, Sonnet 116 and Slim/Curley? Any other ideas as to what could come up?

    it was good and i would give it most marks but u need to show your engagement with the text for example,-this line speaks out me showing... this resonates with me... Also i think u need to talk abit more about steinbecks intentions.Otherwise that is great
    Thank you very much for your feedback...I will try to make sure I talk mroe about Steinbeck's intentions next time

    If you are doing Moon on the Tides - Relationships.
    I have attached an excellent resource.
    I used this last year and I scored almost full marks 52/54 raw marks? If I remember
    correctly!


    I GUARANTEE YOU THIS WILL PUSH YOU OVER THE NEXT GRADE BOUNDARY



    I sat the exam Jan 2012, scored very high. Why? My teacher told me to just literally, memorise a few of the points. Even if you don't know one extremely well, it doesn't matter if your analysis is focused more on on poem. As long as you are comparing all the way throughout and maintaining good structure, linking one point with the next etc, you are good to go! I apologise for leaving it so late, people have been messaging me and asking me to email it to them, I didn't get a chance to because I've been busy with A level revisionl! Better late than never though! I really hope you make good use out of it and share it with your friends. I would also like to add, GOODLUCK!!

    I have my exam script/paper from the actual exam too! So I will post that if you want it, but I'm not sure how useful that would be because my handwriting is awful!
    If I get time before the exam I will post it, if you think it might be useful, I did harmonium and praise song.

    Its been over a year since I sat the exam, so I actually can't remember. Yeah raw marks probably!

    I have my paper with my essay from the actual exam too! So I will post that if you want it, but I'm not sure how useful that would be because my handwriting is awful!
    If I get time before the exam I will post it because I got full marks for the first section

    At the time I didn't have a cgp and this was the most useful thing ever! It has the points there, and explained. Ofc you need your class notes and maybe someone elses interpretation of the poems, so I recommend you ask your friends to send you some interesting points they have for each poem. This is so beneficial
