How did everyone find the exam? I did OMAM and AIC, and I found it very pleasing!! The question on Mr Birling's views was a blessing, along with Curley's Wife's death!! The brutality question was good too!! Thoughts?? How did you all get on? 😊

Literature was never my strong point but I struggled even though the questions weren't too bad... I wish this were an afternoon exam so I could have felt more awake

Anyone do TKAM and LOTF?
The LOTF question on darkness... was good but the TKAM passage was so obscure!

Loved this paper, so easy to include context points on racism and sexism in the brutality question! Feminists are going to have a field day with this paper!

Hiya, I did WJEC and found the first section so difficult, especially on question B. :'( Section B was a good question though.

I wrote the same for Curley's Wife! Yay, at least I'm doing something right! I also wrote about how it's clear Lennie is very stressed out by his mental difficulties when he pleads for her not to die and says 'I done another bad thing,' showing how it is hurting him, as well as others and was an accident blah blah blah.

Maybe not because it was asking you to write about the brutality of ranch life so you needed to give references to the other characters in the ranch so Candy, Crooks, George and Lennie, maybe Curleys's wife too.
You could have mentioned the society at the time, the context: Great Depression, Dust Bowl, lives of migrant workers during the 1930's.
You could have talked about George and Lennie - migrant workers/ broken dreams
Crooks - represent racial discrimination/prejudice, social inequality
Candy - disabled, frailty of human existence, nothing to look forward to
Curley's wife - broken dreams/ marginalisation of women

Which character did you do? What did you write about that character.

Thats relieving! Thought I did it wrong. I talked about Candy and how he gives Steinbeck an opportunity to talk about social discrimination based on age and handicap. What about you?
