    My teacher predicted Eva smith or Sheila for AIC, and the section where slim is presented in OMAM and a question relating to him but these aren't definite so try to revise everything fully

    I thought it was quite hard!! I did 'Of Mice And Men' and 'An Inspector Calls'. AIC was OK but halfway through I totally regretted picking Q17 halfway through when I couldn't really think of anything else to say. I was OK with OMAM but I found myself repeating myself all of the time and I didn't really want to talk about Crooks - I thought there was way more to write about Slim or Curley and his wife's relationship.

    Really? I thought question 18 was quite difficult but questions on OMAM was really easy but we did them exact questions in our mocks so it was a bit easier. I wrote 11 pages in total, what about you guys?

    Hi everyone,

    i'm taking my English Literature GCSE exam in the summer. The modern texts I am studying are Of Mice And Men and An Inspector Calls. I was just wondering if anyone could tell me what the questions were on the January 2013 paper for those two texts? It'll just make my revision a lot easier...thanks

    Crooks will most probably be off the paper as will Mrs Birling, they both appeared in january. With literature papers, i always find it best to look at what hasn't come up in the past (AQA website can show you all past papers). Theres no real trickery to english literature, just thorough revision of every character just in case. Writing talent is also quite important, if you sound fluent and confident in your responses you will get very high marks (if your key points are good). I got my script back a few days ago and they wrote on the side of the paper things like "fluent" "confident" "assured" "good grammar" "quotations" "multiple analysis" "levelled and accurate" "excellent quotation" "historical relation" "effect on audience" "excellent analysis"

    They also wrote things such as "foggy idea" "little explanation" "overly analysed" "relation to question?"

    I scored 80/80 in the exam by making sure that i was answering all of the AO's in the exam. You can find these in the teacher specification. Examiner reports are also really great! They tell you areas where people fall down on the previous exam, and what will score you more marks.

    For An Inspector Calls, do you know the alternative question, or were they both centred around Mrs Birling? Many thanks

    The alternative question was along the lines of; show how class divides influence the family, and how drama is created because of these false ideas? something along those lines

    Thank you so much for that! You can probably understand that by knowing all of the questions that have come up on past papers makes it easier to focus on perhaps the characters or themes that have not already been mentioned! I've looked at some of the examiner's reports and I've also looked at the AO's that I need to include in my response, so thank you for sharing that with me!

    Also, this has nothing to do with English, but in order to secure my A*s for biology, chemistry and physics, I need to get high A*s in my unit 3 exams if possible.. Does anyone, who has got full UMS on unit 3 sciences or close to it, have any tips on how to achieve that? Any websites or resources used that helped you significantly? Thank you
