Is a Grade B in a mice and men essay good? On Curley's wife? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Just wondering if that's good or bad because I found the novel quite hard to analysise due to the very deep meanings. Say I get a B in it....any tips for A or A* ??

    How many have you got that grade? Is it common?

    I want more better grades.

    That is pretty good. 99% of the time you will get 1 grade higher in the real thing than in a mock.
    However, what i have been told is this:
    1. Always link to the historical
    2. When giving an alternative interpretation, you MUST say "alternatively" and then explain in detail the alternative. Try and persuade the examiner that what you are saying is correct.
    3. At the same time as analysing quotes, embed other quotes too to backup explanations

    Is this a English language or English literature essay?

    for me it was part of the language collection and it's usually a play for the literature sector (most commonly shakespeare)
