Ah, completely forgot to put that into the thread. Am I correct in saying Unit 4 is sat at the same time as Unit 2?

I'm studying Of Mice an Men and An Inspector Calls and for poetry I'm doing the relationships cluster.
I heard that it is likely that To His Coy Mistress or In Paris With You or Sister Maude will come up for poetry.

I really need predictions for OMAM and AIC. I'm not confident in all of English lit but the poetry is a little better than the novel and play and I got an A* in my coursework so it shouldn't be too bad.

I'm studying 'An Inspector Calls' and 'Of Mice and Men'. I'm studying the 'relationship cluster'.

What's a good way to remember the information about the poetry clusters.

Hi everyone, I'm studying the novel Purple Hibiscus, the play DNA and also doing relationship poems. Yh I feel confident for the exam basically I've read the books twice now and learnt quotes by putting them on post it notes around my room then I get my sister to test me like what page its on etc....I've familiarised my self on the books and just analysed important stuff and looked at themes etc. I'm naturally good at English lit and have been getting high A's but now I need some tips on how to get A*.

For Purple Hibiscus I have a feeling its going to be on the theme of violence even though they have done that before or myb on silence. My teacher thinks poetry will be on the sonnets because most people don't like them and go over them. Everyone is using Mr Bruff so we need to be imaginative in our poetry responses to get good grades tbhh

  • To Kill a Mockingbird, The Crucible and Relationships
  • Erm...I haven't really started revising yet so I don't feel that confident >_< When I get to it I'll go through the texts and type up notes, make quotation banks for characters, practise loads and loads of poem comparisons and write a bunch of practise essays
  • Apparently Elizabeth Proctor hasn't come up for ages for The Crucible, and neither have Sister Maude or In Paris With You for the poems

Someone else also studying Kindertransport! I hate English Lit with a passion so I haven't started revising for it properly. We've just read the play pretty much. I actually don't how to revise for it.

I also reccomend Mr Salles, really good for hitting the A*

Of mice and men, AIC and relationship poetry
Haven't done much revision for it, just started making notes
Of mice and men- possibly carlson/whit but it would be a hard one
AIC- Gerald/sheila and responsibility possibly
relationships-no idea, but i thank god that farmers bride was last year. I actually
hate that poem so much, that's probably the only poem I will neglect

For 'Of Mice and Men' maybe the American dream will come up as we're the last year studying this book, why Carlson shot candy's dog or something to do with slim
For An Inspector Calls I think it will be how Sheila and Eric change as the play progresses or something along those lines
For the Relationships cluster I think it will be 'in paris with you' or 'to his coy mistress'
