Who has got the lit exam tomorrow?

Which character do you expect it to be?

How do I revise for it and remember the quotes?

How do you structure the intro, PDEAs and conclusion? (For example what do I need to include in each of these)

Thanks very much! Any responses would be greatly appreciated!

I'm doing OMAM and AIC. You don't need an intro and get no marks. Also, you don't want to make a long intro that will make the marker think you don't know what you get marks for.

I would just refer to the question quickly if anything e.g. Steinbeck uses various methods when presenting the theme of isolation.

Then I would dive into my first point e.g. Steinbeck uses dialogue to present the idea of isolation...

Watch Mr Bruff on YouTube. He has analysed all of OMAM and AIC in detail. Very useful

I have heard from several sources that it is likely the character for tomorrow in OMAM could be Curley. This is because he has never come up before in any exams (after looking through the AQA past papers myself).

If it does so happen to him I will be referring to the social historical context as white men being very dominant during the time where prejudice was very common.

Hope this helps!

Does anyone know if I am allowed to take my own AVFTB book into school? If so, can I fold pages?

I'd highly recommend helpmemrdavies for AIC and LOtF. The only revision I did for my English Lit GCSE was watching his videos the night before, and I ended up with an A*. He's very good

Just wondering, when answering section B should I answer both part A and B in the same essay or write two separate ones for each individual question?

I would answer part a and b separately.

But you don't have to apparently.
