    Hey guys!

    I couldn't find a general thread for this GCSE, and it is - in my opinion - going to be the most challenging!

    There have been some slight changes to this specification (9715)... Although it's pretty much the same :rolleyes: But we're the first year to do it

    Exam dates (AQA):
    Unit 1: Monday 18th May AM
    Unit 2/4: Friday 22nd May AM

    I think they're a bit earlier than last year

    I'm doing TKAM, The Crucible and Place :cool:

    What prose, play and anthology cluster have you guys studied?

    The book or the questions that came up? 😄
    I heard people were glad there was a question about Proctor; the Mary Warren one mustn't have looked nice!
    Do you do English lit for As?

    Both I suppose, I really enjoyed reading the play: I was kind of glad but it was about how he developed through the play and I found it difficult to write about his character in all four acts within the time limit, which meant that I had two and a half sides of paper dedicated to Proctor in Act 1/2/3, then I had to rush Act 4 and my conclusion! (Make sure you do plenty of exam questions for your revision, I can't stress the importance of them enough!)
    Yeah, I do - and I'm definitely dropping it at A2 ahaha

    Hahaha I shall! I am going to reread the crucible as we read it so long ago!
    I'm glad we don't need to know context for the crucible... I mean, I know a little, and it's useful to understand for themes... But it's so annoying! I don't want to write history essays for TKAM

    What poetry cluster did you do?

    We did Purple Hibiscus instead of TKAM, still haven't read that fully! The essays get much easier when you practice them honestly, they're not the worst things! We did relationships for poetry, what are you doing?

    I'm not sadly! The Woman in Black is meant to be so good! Some of my friends are though!
    There's a lot of schools that do the relationships cluster though!
    Have you finished studying them all?

    I'm doing Of Mice and Men, Lord of the Flies and Conflict. I have to say, I adore Of Mice and Men - not as keen on Lord of the Flies. The Conflict cluster is pretty interesting, though.

    Edit: Am I the only one here doing OMAM? That's suprising, I thought it was one of the more popular choices... :confused:

    Can you analyze 'no' when it is said in command. Like saying it is very constructional and makes you seem like a leader etc?

    I wouldn't say I'm that good but...
    I would say it is authoritative, shows command and power. Depending on the context, it can portray arrogance I guess...
    is this for Spoken Language?
    I got 20/20 on that :cool: I just wrote loads and loads about little stuff

    I studied OMAM in year 9... it's a good book to be honest!
    It's easier to understand than TKAM... the ending is quite dramatic though

    Atticus, such a good book theres so many themes in it though so questions on the paper could literally be on anything.
