    Do you need to learn quotes by heart? My teacher has given me over 500!! and thats only for one novel (An Inspector Calls if you were wondering).

    Do you just need to learn the important quotes? and if so, could you give me a list of quotes which are important for the novels

    1) Of Mice and Men - John Steinbeck
    2) An Inpsector Calls - JB Priestly
    3) Heroes - Robert Cormier

    Thanks xxxxxxx

    You have the books with you on the day. You just need a brief idea of what quotes match what theme/character.

    I did closed book too. You don't need that many quotes, you're not going to be writing hundreds in the exam, you just need to have the right quotes for the question asked or be able to justify your quotes.

    Woo! Some WJEC people. We're doing it too, as well as Of Mice and Men. Only thing different to you is that we're doing About a Boy for our third. I'm guessing all of you live in Wales as well?

    Anyway, 500 is ridiculous! Anything over 100 is ridiculous, to be honest. Just make sure you have about 10-15 major quotes for each character, learning all of them is ridiculous.

    And you are so lucky for studying "About A Boy," I read it and tbh I actually really liked it.
