    I'm doing To Kill a Mockingbird... not really sure how to gauge how prepared I am. I've been looking at that today and going through themes and characters etc, tomorrow I go through poetry

    Mixed feelings about this one. Have done loads of revision on OMAM and know the book quite well, but most of my practise answers haven't been up to standard (imo)

    I get so fustrated with English Lit., all my marked work is of A* standard but I can never write a sufficient amount. Also I hate how we have to learn quotes - how does this test our ability to respond to literature in any way?

    Did a lot of OMAM revision today and have all my quotes and essay plans, need to do RS and unseen poetry tomorrow as well (but I have geography and physics next week as well, not to mention the unit 2 exam so need to fit in some revision for those too)

    If you've analysed poem 1 and poem 2 then the comparison should hopefully come naturally. Talk about similarities and differences, be perceptive if you're aiming for the highest grades.

    Curley's wife was last year, doubt they'll repeat it so close. I bet Candy or Lennie and then Loneliness,Racism or portyal of women.

    Good Luck

    These are my predictions; characters - Curley's wife (or her relationship with Curley), Candy, could be a question about the minor characters and their significance? George as an individual could come up. Themes - Treatment of women could be asked about, or loneliness, power. Could they ask us about the settings?

    I believe they can. Personally i would never pick the settings question. I've seen a settings quest on how the setting at the end of the novel ( lennies death) are good.

    In what ways is George significant could be asked because Candy came up in the specification and they may use treatment of women as a theme question

    You just don't know what will come up, it's best to just revise everything. Sometimes they do repeat questions but word it differently...
