I'm doing an inspector call and heroes and my teacher has told me that almost every year there will either be something on a main character or a main theme, however the extract question is almost always how someone acts or is presented or how the writer creates mood and atmosphere if you want an idea have a look at the WJEC past papers you can find them almost anywhere mainly their website, what other exams are you doing with the WJEC?

Hi!
Thanks very much. Yes- i'm hoping they will either be on a theme or character for the questions. I was just wondering if anyone could make any predictions/ideas if you considered which characters have not appeared on past papers. I am thinking for Inspector Calls, the exam could be on Shelia as she has not appeared in any past papers to my knowledge.
English language and lit is the only exam I am doing with WJEC. How about you?

All my exams are with WJEC except history which I'm doing with EDEXCEL

Do we have any updates on this? I heard suggestions that OMAM questions are expected to be based on Candy, Crooks or Slim, but that's all.

Crooks came up last year so I doubt he will come up again. Candy was used in the wjec specimen question so I have a feeling it will be on slim but then again slim is one of the characters who has not appeared in the extract question and last year it was a mood and atmosphere extract so this year it must be a character extract on someone like slim.

I have also heard Slim is quite likely to appear on the paper this year!

I reckon it will either be Candy, Slim or Curley's Wife. This is simply because they have previously asked a question about Curley(essay question) in June 2013 exam, and June 2014 was about Crooks. Therefore, it must be Slim or Candy this year, although it can also be Curley's Wife. A question about George and Lennie's friendship came up in November 2014 exam so I'm not sure but I think Slim might come up.

Not in WJEC last year it was Crooks for the essay and Curley's Wife for the extract.

I've had a look at all the past papers on WJEC website for OMAM, and this is what I found:

2014 (Summer): Extract - Curley's Wife. Essay - Crooks or Dreams
2014 (Winter): Extract - mood and atmosphere. Essay - George & Lennie's relationship or a statement about strengths
2013 (Summer): Extract - Crooks. Essay - Curley or atmosphere statement
2013 (Winter): Extract - Carlson. Essay - Victims or importance of animals in novel
2012 (Summer): Extract - Candy. Essay - Sympathy for Lennie or strengths and weaknesses
2012 (Winter): Extract - George. Essay - Slim or friendship

So, Curley's wife, George and Candy haven't come up in the essay question in a while... don't know if this helps?

I feel like an essay on Sheila is very likely for AIC. There's not been an essay on her for ages and considering the new 'context' based questions I think she shows some context as well.

There's almost no way that a question will come up on Whit, unless it's in relation to minor characters.

Thanks.
I've heard the essay question could be on Loneliness as this hasn't appeared for a while.
