Hey all, I was just wondering if there was anybody taking the edexcel english lit exams on tuesday and thursday, edexcel doesn't seem very popular! Which texts and poem collections are you doing? I'm doing of mice and men and dr jekyll and mr hyde for prose (unit 1) and then clashes and collisions for poetry (unit 2).
Does anybody have any predictions on what might come up but also and advice on preparing for the exams?

ok, cool! I've seen a few people thinking that slim may come up for omam. I'm freaking out about this!

Also do you have any advice on the comparing poems and how you structure it as I'm completely stuck on how to do it and my teacher never went through it!

Slim came up last year? I think! Also our teacher said just mention the second poem they want you to compare and say 'as similar to poemA' or 'unlike poemA' but mainly talking about poem B!

I'm doing Animal Farm, OMaM and Clashes and Collisions. For OMaM I think it might be Curley- he hasn't come up before. For Poetry I'd probably guess: Parades End, The Class Game or O What Is That Sound (they haven't come up before either).

Im doing the exact same! I really hope the poems Catrin and Hitcher or Exposure and the Class Game come up as they are my strongest poems.

Hey there! I'm doing Of Mice and Men and Jekyll and Hyde as well! For poetry, though, it's Taking a Stand - and I agree, most schools seem to be doing AQA... So which characters and themes do you think might come up on Tuesday for prose and for the unseen poem?

From questions b and c in jekyll and hyde do we have to refer from just the extract given or can we talk about other events from the novel? Also tips for how to structure eg. Pea chains blah , i always have to many things to say and my structure just messes up!

Only refer to the extract for A, B and C. Our teacher gave us this structure to use.

Question A

P-Point E-Evidence E-Explain (3 Paragraphs)

Question B

P-Point E-Evidence E-Explain Z-Zoom into word/device.

Question C

P-Point E-Evidence E-Explain

Hope this helps! Good Luck!!!
