I have no idea what to do. My target for English literature is an A but I feel like I'll just about manage to get a C. My Drama and Prose is TKAM and An Inspector Calls. I don't have a problem in memorising quotes but I struggle to use A/A* techniques in my writing and I don't know how to develop on my points in a way that makes sense to the question. I just need help on how to create an A / A* piece of writing. Thanks 😀
(PS I really need a reply ASAP my exam is on Monday )

Hey,

I just took my Drama & Prose English Lit exam on Friday (Jan 2016). And hopefully you read this post in time (sorry for the delay). It was the exact same board as you (Edexcel) and I can only tell you the questions they will ask Simply because I do not remember all four of them the following is the only one(s) that I remember.

Section 2 will Ask:

Q) How is Crooks and one other character represented as lonely in of mice and men? ( I chose Crooks & Curley's Wife)

And for An Inspector Calls it will be:

Q) How does Steinbeck represent Females in the poem?

I forgot the other two, simply because the ones you see above are the questions that I personally answered. Hopefully you read this thread in time, and it will be some assistance to you.

Good Luck!

I'm doing Of Mice and Men and also An Inpector Calls on Monday (tomorrow), are you sure it's the exact same questions? Btw the inspector question is wrong as priestly wrote the play not Steinbeck I think you had gotten mixed up aha

I'm doing the iGCSE edexcel exam board paper 1 drama and prose (is it the same as your paper?)

Do you remember the other questions for OMAM and AIC?

And lastly how was the exam for you? I had hoped you had done well

i feel like this year for inspector calls , social responsibility , the inspector , gerald, sybil billing or sheila might come up and you never know if eric might come up again because last year it only popped up. for omam i think the theme of dreams , conflicts in the story or animals representation might come up or character wise on slim , crooks , curleys wife , lennie an George.

How do you structure the answers? Is there a different structure for the other question (OMAM)?
