    What do you mean by natural setting? Similar to the bunkhouse question?
    Similar, but I'm guessing it will be on the opening and end scenes, near the river. It'd be quite good for close language analysis, but maybe not for context

    EVERYONE WORRIED ABOUT OMAM NATURAL SETTING, HERE'S SOMETHING REALLY USEFUL:

    People have been thinking it's possible this will come up, in which case you need to know what you're going to write about or else you're going to be panicking in the exam.
    brilliant. Thank you so much.

    Think of the writers intentions, and how they want the reader / audience to feel. For example, it could be sympathy.

    well done! - hopefully i will get one hehe

    oh wow.. i personally wouldnt have picked the setting question - when i did it i did the violence question.. it seemed a bit more varied
    im personally thinking it will be ralph/conch/beast - since they havent come up

    as long as it is someting to do with violence and its presentation i think i will get 22+ (hopefully)

    ryan
    I hope you get one too! It seems like you've got some pretty good ideas so it's not impossible! I think the conch could be pretty good for you and your violence, because it stands for democracy and the lack and failure of it on the island. Well, good luck anyways xD

    yeah i think a person (me) could just learn about 12-15 good points and universally use them for all the question..so in that sense it isnt too hard

    are you doing lit at a/as-level??

    I'm certain last year they must of had an indication that Curleys wife could come up, as she hadn't, therefore, I assume that people like us were saying ''Curleys wife, Slim or Curley could come up, they haven't yet.'' - Curleys wife did come up.

    Aside from minor characters, it is only Slim or Curley that hasn't come up, i'd guess that Slim is more likely as he came up on foundation 2013.

    The last two June characters have been Crooks and Curleys wife, two quite easy characers, and a setting has not yet been used for a June exam. Read into that what you will.

    Our teacher is guessing for OMaM something a bit more theme-based e.g. the american dream, the itinerant worker etc. rather than a character-based question. Another teacher suggested a more minor character might come up (though I'm a bit doubtful on this one) such as Slim or Curley

    For An Inspector Calls its possible that any character may come up so I'd just go over every character in detail
