    I did an inspector calls (conflict) and wrote about the impending war briefly, then went on to talk about Eric & Birling's tenuous relationship due to how Eric was never the son Birling wanted, and how Gerald was everything that Birling had hoped Eric to be in the sense that Gerald is a younger parallel to Birling with his capitalistic views and business driven attitude. I then said how Eric's stealing furtherd the rift in their relationship.
    Then I went on to talk about the conflict between the classes, using Eva Smith's protest for higher wages as an example, and touching on how the higher classes are driven by greed rather than the lower classes who are simply trying to stay alive. Then I summed it up with how the whole play is a social commentary on the war between capitalistic and socialistic views and how Goole is a tool used to represent the socialistic side and Birling represents the capitalistic side.

    I absolutely hated this question and probably just spent most of the time staring at the paper rather than writing. I get 25% extra time and still wrote less than everyone else 😂😂
    Opinions on the points I made? Good/bad?
    Hoping the boundaries are low because if not I'm screwed 😬
    They're really good!! I wrote some nonsense about how the proletarian classes were oppressed whilst being viewed as a commodity and as a result it escalated tension between the two classes and ultimately created conflict lol

    Honestly I'm reading through all the poems like 10 times over, noting down any themes/general notes I've missed.
    My prediction for this cluster is The Ruined Maid (almost definitely) and Medusa/Give, so I'm reading through all my notes thoroughly and trying to link them however I can... Do you have any suggestions on themes that I can link to other poems?

    how does that equate because isn't unit 1 45% and unit 2 is 30% so coursework (25% holds little weight)
    I'm not sure, it's just what my teacher told me - I was literally one mark of an A for both exams once and she told me I'd still get an A*?

    Didn't mean to give anyone false hope!

    I found AIC difficult because I wanted to link my answer to Ouspensky and other deeper meaning such as the religious presence of the inspector but I just squeezed it into my answer oddly. and for OMAM, I had some good points but with little time. for the extract I said that the voices acted like one side of George's conscience, pointing the gun where Lennie's head and skull meet highlight how his mental disadvantages have cost him his life despite being physically capable of surviving in society. I predict THCM and In Paris with You for poetry and a place theme for the unseen poem.

    Any predictions for relationships poetry and the theme/genre for the unseen poem?

    I like brothers but the poem is quite straightforward so there isn't a lot of in depth analysis to do. I would prefer it didn't come up but as a poem I really like the message.

    I did the Gerald/Sheila question for AIC. I wrote about how Sheila was suspicious of Gerald at the start of the book - then went on to the bit where Gerald gives Sheila the engagement ring but she's quite childlike about it as she still asks for her mothers approval 'Look, Mummy!' and then I believe I finished on the fact that Sheila wouldn't accept the ring back at the end of the book. Didn't really have much time to re-read my answers.
    Completely messed up my OMAM questions. For part a I had no clue what to write about - I put that they were discussing the American Dream, something Lennie was holding on to, and it made Lennie happy as he was 'giggling with happiness'. George wanted to make Lennie's last minutes on Earth happy. Also wrote about how George's hand shook when he raised the gun - shows how much he cared about him. Evokes sympathy in the reader as we are put into George's shoes. For part b I wrote about George/Lennie and Curley's wife. But, apparently it said in the question not to talk about George/Lennie? Is this true? It did also say 1 or 2 more characters but I did 3. Ooops. I wrote that Lennie was the only one holding onto the dream, as George didn't really believe in it. The quote 'blue and green and red rabbits' or something along those lines. I think I wrote about how Candy offered them money to get a place with them which made George more confident that it was going to happen but it ultimately got destroyed at the end. For Curley's Wife i wrote about how Lennie was the only one she could speak to as he would probably forget what she said soon enough. Didn't really write much for this bit as I ran out of time.
    I'm really not feeling confident with my answers, though. I had no time at all to check over my answers, I was writing for every minute.

    I'm doing character and voice on Friday. I'm hoping 'The Ruined Maid' and 'Give' come up.
