    What are people's ssuggested timings on Part B - Of mice and men, Should my Part A be Longer or the Part B Thanks.
    Its suggested to spend 45 mins on your of mice and men part B. Since the exam itself is 1hr 30mins that leaves you 45mins for part A

    Is it bad that my school are not giving us new copies but are making us use our old ones but asking us to clean all notes out?
    I'm sure people will cheat
    Do you think it's because my school can't afford to buy us new copies? or..?? are they supplied free of charge from aqa, if so would anyone know why we don't get them?

    I go to a charity church funded school..
    Thanks!

    Mrs. Birling represents an example of someone who has sinned in this morality play although it is somewhat secular. Mrs.Birling denies Eva any help or aid for her unborn child and calls her "impertinent" even though she knows she is of a lower social class; this could give imply connotations of Mrs.Birling's pride engrossing her as she believes she is better than Eva and believes that the fact that someone of a lower social class used the Birling name is unforgivable. Pride is one of the seven deadly sins and is represented through Mrs. Birling in this play. Priestley presents some of those of middle class who are living a high standard of life as sinners who are not contributing positively society on the moral scale and as a member of the audience it makes you start to consider your actions as well as how you treat other people. Made that up on the spot

    I don't think they get funded from AQA but exam texts should be priority for school funds.

    People may try to cheat by the invigilators will see the texts as they walk around and if they see notes they have to disqualify you.

    My school are not giving us new books either (not showing off but I go a private school so they should be able to afford it)
    They are going to check all our books before the exam to make sure there are no annotations
