Of Mice and Men questions were so obscure, especially part A - hated it.

For the Crucible did you do betrayal or parris
i thought betrayal was easiest because the whole book is based on it

I did purple hibiscus but it was a shambles

I did Parris and I regret it so much. In the exam I just had to go out and calm down, I thought I was actually going to cry. That seems so extreme aha

I wrote about how the characters spoke to each other and how they always picked on the weak. But then everybody else came out of the exam and had written completely different things :/

I know! Its the second to last year of this exam structure and they pick quite a minor topic. Honestly thought it was going to be on anything apart from that.

Ah No! I actually would of cried if it wasn't Parris! Looking at past answers I predicted it would be him so did load of him, so was so glad when I saw he was the question. All you needed to talk about was how he was presented negatively in the narrative, was powerful but then was wakened in the end as he actually begs Elizabeth! Betrayal actually sounds very hard as there is so much to talk about!

Thank god, I wrote most of what you just said. Im predicted high grades so hopefully everything will be fine with poetry and controlled assessment :/

Same, I'm predicted A* so hopefully I managed to write what the examiner is looking for when it meant ' significance'. I did To Kill a Mockingbird also, but the passage we were given was rubbish!

I did Parris and talked about how he is only interested in maintaining his reputation in the village rather than the welfare of his daughter, how he is self-interested, how he defers to Putnam, and compared him to Hale in that Hale changes and wants the trials postponed for the right reasons, Parris does it out of fear for his life.

Yes OMAM was a bit of an obscure question - hopefully they will think what we wrote was appropriate...

If i wrote about how Lennie is reliant on George and doesn't understand his own strength so it means he has to die becuase he is mentality weak so George must kill Lennie? is that right ??
