    I'm studying OMAM, AIC and the relationships cluster.
    For revision I'm watching Mr Bruff and Mr Salles and just making notes.
    Also, I think AIC will be on Gerald or Sheila. For OMAM I think it will be Curley or Candy

    Hi guys I am doing the Crucible and OMAM for the Modern Texts part... Does anyone have any predictions for The Crucible? Also, I am kinda worried about whether Carlson will come up for OMAM (I REALLY hope not ). If he does, what would you guys say about him? Thanks xx

    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'
    Yep, the american dream would be a great conclusion to the book

    90% sure it won't be Parris because he was the character question for last year.

    My teacher thinks it could be Rebecca Nurse or something to do with Proctor's relationships; Proctor and Abigail or Proctor and Elizabeth.

    Thank you 😊 I thought that Proctor and Elizabeth's relationship has already come up as a question? And I think a couple of years Proctor as an individual came up, so I don't know 😕 But tbh the exam boards can be pretty unpredictable so I suppose it could be anything!! 😬 Thanks again xx Also how are u revising for it??

    Yeah I think so too but I think she just mentioned it as a possibility or something linked to their relationship idk.

    You're welcome😊😊

    At the moment i am rereading it but slowly because I'm choosing quotes for each character and then thinking about how I would analyse it but believe me it's really time consuming, I'm almost finished though.

    I think I'm going to do the same for the themes, but that won't be as long...I hope😳😅

    What about you?

    If it is a character then it wont e too bad but carlson is fine!!!i hate having a setting....plus i dont think he is going to come up maybe something like hierarchy/status/working man and the fight scene because it is a vital scene in the play that has not come up yet

    Im studying OMAM , AIC and the relationship poetry cluster
    For OMAM I would love it to be Crooks or Curleys wife however that is very unlikely, so instead im predicting Candy and his dog will be the question as their relationship as dumb as it sounds links to many of the novels themes!!!!
    For AIC I have no idea as the whole book just completely confuses me however if the character is Eva Smith again or Mrs Birling than wish me look , im hoping it will be The Inspector or the development of Sheila and Eric
    Poetry - I have no idea whatso ever however ive heard it could be Sister Maude which is my favourite poem so fingers crossed!!!

    If you have any other predictions let me know!! Also could someone please let me know what the questions where for OMAM , AIC and Poetry for 2015 for revision purposes???

    What themes does his relationship with the dog link in to? Gonna revise OMAM tomorrow
    AIC is my favourite because I like the play... I'm assuming it'll be the inspector, Gerald or Sybil

    What do you think will come up for the conflict poetry cluster, I had the 2015 question for my mock it was about how is fear presented in Bayonet Charge and one other poem (I chose Out of the Blue and got an A*). What poem do you think will come up this year and any idea what the question may be about??
