Good to hear that you have pushed you're grade up, can you give me a few tips too, I'm currently on a high A and want to ensure that I get an A*

An example question is how does the author make you feel sympathetic to the characters?

Always use PEEDAE aswell

thats exactly what i do for the A*..for poetry talk about the point then quote then explain in in basics ..give around 4 alternative interpreatations tha are complrelty out of this world and unique to blow the examiners mind and then add at the end how it affects the reader..e.g the evil character of Havisham makes us as readers more frightened of her, and we woud not be wanted to meet her in real life,..having the language just create this atmospheric attitude puts even more pressure on the reader, and it feels as though the text is pulling our minds together with hers. it could be interpreetted that she is one o those people who can bring illusions to your mind, which could be also refected through how the irregular structure of the pattern schem of the poem does not flow, adding to her abnormality and ability to bring illuusiosn to readers minds. maybe she is so affected that creating these illusions has become one of ehr skills, adding to how the consequences could be reviewed as being exciting and helpful, as it overall helped her to develop a new skill..


As you can see abpve, i completely bull****ted my way through, but that is THE way to get the A* grade...hope we both gain our A* grade next tuesday..we all deserve it

Thanks for the question bdw

I wouldn't do too many- just read through your notes and look at language techniques and amke mindmaps or whatever
Our teacher told us to leave off doing too many past papers as it can make your writing stale and disrupt your flow

That's some amazing stuff there... even though your post is riddled with grammatical and spelling mistakes.

Ah.

I got top in my school. Just talk about pipe dreams and you'll be fine. Mice and Men is a nice easy topic (if not a crap book). Also try and get the quote in "best laid plans of mice and men" or w/e.

Not at all, Of Mice and Men is actually the most engaging book you could ever study for English Literature; compared to the drab that was Great Expectations.

How on earth can you think it's a crap book?

My face went like when I glanced at my measly 1 rep bar, then your reputation beyond comprehension.

I restate my point I made before though.

It's really nothing to be proud of.

But yay.

Although I also liked Great Expectations.

I did "Of Mice and Men" last year. It's a very interesting book and, crucially, very accessible. As "BradfordCityJoss" said the quote:

"The best laid plans of mice and men // Often go awry."

Or, as it is in Burns's "To A Mouse": "The best laid schemes of mice and men // Go often askew."

In any case, try and slip it in. It's a nice quote and proves you have knowledge beyond the syllabus.

Failing that, make sure that what you say when you write the essay is as relevant to the question as possible. If you're in there and you really can't think of anything pertaining to the actual question then write down as much as you know, but if possible be subtle, penetrating and relevant.

It's a simple book that has easy, accessible themes. This means it is perfect to use in a curriculum. However the story is predictable, slow in parts and sad. It's not a book I enjoy. An opinion is an opinion, because I've just started posting doesn't mean mine is any less valid but now I'll be sure to you value yours all the more!

I'm doing this on Tuesday, and sorry to sound stupid, but where do I find that quote in the book? Or is it not from the book and from somehwere else?
If so, where? :confused:
No, it's not from the book. It's from "To A Mouse" by Burns, and is where Steinbeck got the title from.

Dickens over Steinbeck anyday. Although I admit the length of 'Of Mice and Men' is preferable when having to learn it inside out.
