    I've seen many people say they think that Sheila and Gerald will come up but they have both come up before. Sheila in 2011 and Gerald in 2012. Because it has been removed from AQA'S website do you think it'll still come up?

    My mate's mum is an English teacher and she predicts:
    Paper 1) Inspector Calls = Gerald; Of Mice and Men= Curley or Women in the novel.
    Paper 2) For the relationship cluster= In Paris With You, Brothers or Nettles.

    Any thoughts on this? much appreciated...

    Ralph and Piggy finding the conch, Jack breaking Piggy's glasses, the election of Ralph as chief, the splitting of the groups into two different tribes, Piggy's death, the island burning up at the end (as you mentioned), Jack first putting on the 'mask', Simon talking to the 'Lord of the Flies', the killing of Simon (before his death scene where he floats away with almost religious imagery)

    And while not a 'significant event' I find a more overlooked quote to be:

    'Pig.'
    'We eat pig.'
    'Piggy!'

    This foreshadows Piggy's death as pigs on the island are killed, and it almost has creepy and cannibalistic undertones.

    If you want any help with this book, let me know!

    Also if you have a chance to talk about Roger in your Lord of the Flies question, do! Roger is a symbolic character for evil incarnate, in my opinion. While characters like Jack degenerate and get corrupted by power lust, Roger was already evil from the start. The character of Roger was originally held back by the rules and regulations of society, In Chapter 4, we see this in practice. Roger is throwing stones and aiming to miss, as he still feels 'the taboo of the old life' where he would be told of for doing something like this back home. The island allows Roger to release the evil inside of him, and he tends to cling to Jack as Jack allows him to carry out his sadistic tendencies and ends up literally sending boys to Roger to be tortured, who does so happily and takes a sick and perverse enjoyment in it.

    Roger is honestly such an overlooked character! One of the central themes of Lord of the Flies is darkness being in all men's hearts, and Roger already has this the second he arrives on the island, the island is anarchistic and allows people to be themselves, releasing their evil and animalistic tendencies. Jack and Ralph degenerate, yes. Of course Jack is evil, but Roger is truly the symbol of evil in our novel.

    It's Roger that murders piggy. Not Jack, not under the command of Jack. Roger kills Piggy just because he CAN. This directly parallels with him throwing stones to miss earlier in the novel.

    Sorry, went on a bit of a waffle there. Roger's such an interesting character to talk about and it's a real shame we've never had a question about him!

    I would, but I studied Lord of the Flies and To Kill a Mockingbird. I can help you with general literature though, like how to go about answering the questions.

    I studied the Character and Voice cluster, but for a general idea on how to go about pulling apart a comparison, I could still send you this practice question I did yesterday?

    For AIC i think Old vs Young Generation will come up and im not sure if they will ask a question on a specific character this year, because its the last year they might ask you about the inspector final speech

    For Of Mice and Men im confident that the characters are either Curley or Lennie and part b will be on either violence, death or the american dream
