    I am yet to see a thread for combined English A level.

    Does anyone have any predictions for themes for Wuthering Heights? apparently 'Love & Marriage' is strongly rumoured. I'm going to take a gamble and revise for this theme and 'Society & Class'. Most themes cross over in some way anyway.

    How're you guys revising? think I'm going to just write two of the best possible essays for the above themes and try to memorise them.

    Good luck!

    I'm really struggling to revise as there are so many possible questions and absolutely no guide for guessing... Probably going to focus on contrasts, love/marriage, power and childhood and just revise key scenes and terminology.

    Theme of power sounds promising. It's only been up once and that was on a 2010 paper.

    Does anyone know what questions came up in June 2014??? Can't seem to find a past paper for it online :\

    It would be good to know what came up then as they're unlikely to come up twice in a row.

    Anyone? Btw if you put LL4 or lang and lit in the title the thread might be easier to find.

    I found all of the papers since 2012 online, WJEC has posted them on their website with mark schemes as well.

    I'm not so confident about the themes I was revising since looking over past papers...seems like the questions are a bit random.

    Im doing this exam too and 2014 questions which i found on WJEC website were;


    2. Explore how the theme of childhood is presented in the texts you have studied.

    3. ‘Man’s grandeur stems from his knowledge of his own misery’. Consider how painful emotions
    are presented in the texts you have studied.

    4. How are men presented in the texts you have studied?

    5. Examine the presentation of different values and/or beliefs in the texts you have studied.

    6. Discuss the presentation of power struggles in the texts you have studied.

    Interesting to see this thread - I did this A2 last year and there was virtually nothing on here compared to other examining boards.

    Good luck to you all!

    Oh cool, thanks Interesting how they were all thematic last year. Lots of other past papers had at least 1 question on structure, setting or narrative style (etc.) so it seems good to revise things like that too.

    Good coursework helps lol!

    I did really obscure (and slightly depressing) texts and don't really have any other advice other than to know it well - was very proud at being able to include a reference to one of my favourite teenage books in the essay (my mum dared me to get it in there) - it was not on the recommended wider reading but it fit the scenario so who cares lol!

    Good luck - sure you will be fine.

    I dont think anyone knows really because they could ask anything from how are women presented to themes or worse they could use a quote and ask how it links in

    That's true :/ but at least there's gonna be 5 questions to choose from so hopefully one of them is suitable for us to answer and also what text are you going to use to compare Wuthering Heights with ?

    5 questions is the only great thing and hopefully fingers crossed that there is a suitable one for us all

    im comparing to Romeo + Juliet, Much Ado About Nothing, The Lovely Bones, The Kite Runner

    i just got quotes in there that would fit in with different themes such as love and marriage and also death

    what are you revising and what books?

    I think Love/Marriage could come up , I wouldn't mind if Isolation was to come up that would be good
    My teacher also made us focus on social class but that came up last year so I doubt it will come up again.

    Let's just hope one of the 5 questions is one that were able to answer well!
