I'm doing the same exam on Monday and I wasn't in school when my class finished the book so my teacher told me it'd be a good idea to watch the movie (you can find it online). She also mentioned that it's good to remember the AO1, AO2 and AO4 as all of them need to be addressed in order to get a high mark.

AO1 - respond to texts critically and imaginatively; select and evaluate relevant textual detail to illustrate and support interpretations
AO2 - explain how language, structure and form contribute to writers’ presentation of ideas, themes and settings (many students lose marks here because they don't discuss the language; e.g. metaphors, adjectives etc.)
AO4 - relate texts to their social, cultural and historical contexts; explain how texts have been influential and significant to self and other readers in different contexts and at different times
So when you go in the exam make sure you speak about each of these things so you don't limit yourself in terms of the marks you can get.

Hope this helped at least a little bit. I hate the text and especially the fact that there isn't much information about it online.
Good luck

I'm not sure to be fair, i haven't been give a plan to follow so really I just write what comes to mind, as long as you do it in chronological order or for (a) you start explaining from the beginning of the passage to the middle then the end. I was also told that they should be in the form of a PEE paragraph but then again, i don't know if any of this is for sure. Sorry

I'm doing Mister Pip, I haven't read it all but I know a hell of a lot of context, themes, symbolism and that's all you need. Mister Pip is weighted majorly on how you link to context. My teacher says that you for part a) pick two quotes from the passage and part b) two quotes again but from anywhere in the book. You can also add additional quotes throughout your essay in to emphasise a point.

Structure of a PEE paragraph
1. Point i.e Jones presents Matilda's thoughts and feelings about home as the epitome of
inconsolability
2. Evidence/ This is demostrated in the line/ when (character name) says "......"
3. Explanation. e.g this suggests the desolation the small island has conflicted upon Matilda/ this highlights the harsh contrasts on how barren the island is for matilda
4. Structure/Language: The use of the word "constant" represents there is continous infliction of agony as Matilda has been left to feel alone. Structure shows us the contrast between the forge vs Matilda through the opposing words "embraced" and "horrible"
5. Alternatively: the jungle could be a symbol for the contrast between matilda and jungle; otherwise known as a symbol for the reskins oppresion.
6.Context- This represents the harsh reality under the time of the civil war, where anarchy and violence were an eminent issue.
7. Writers Intention
8. Readers effect
9. link to question (optional)

My english is kinda sucky but I hope I helped!

Yes, well that's my teacher advice as long as you explain throuroughly two quotes for each section then you'll be on the top bands. If you follow thesteps for a PEE you are already guranteed a B if you explain it craply (like I dID IN MY MOCK for short stories xD

eHH I just read my past essays and stuff.
Well I don't study any plays but we did do a CA on one last year, I just did the PEE paragraph but commenting on structure was commenting on stage directions.

How was the exam everyone?]
I hated the passage E.E

For B)
I talked about the setting and how it reflected the civil war/the oppression the redskins caused/the isoslation of the island/ and a tiny paragraph section on the ignorance between cultures and the outside world, did I talk about the right thing?

As long as your a) was good it'll balance off. I timed myself well but it meant not writing as much that I was supposed to write, I hope I pass I need a C ;-;
