    I am actually crying I need an A* my coursework was 37/40 so I think that that is probably an a* but I have no idea what to write about for the crucible. Does anyone have any predictions for which theme will come up because I would prefer to do that question because when reading the examiner reports they said that the character ones were done poorly and no one had unique interpretations.
    Argh freaking out!!

    When's the last time she came up? My gut feeling is that it'll be gerald


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    She came up in Jan 2013, so probably not her. Most likely to be Sheila as she hasn't come up for the longest or maybe Gerald. Really hope it's sheila cos i've only revised for her whoops

    I'm doing Kindertransport & what do you mean by abyss and villains? That's the questions could be about those things?
    One of the questions could be about the abyss being mentioned throughout the play and another suggestion could be about who is a villain in the play e.g ratcatcher

    For the poetry relationship cluster I think it may be 'To His Coy Mistress', 'Hour' or 'Harmonium'. They haven't come up before (or in a while)

    What novel, play and poetry cluster are you studying? OMAM and AIC. Relationships for Poetry.
    How are you preparing for the exam - do you feel confident for it? Mainly by learning quotes to save time in the exam. Relatively confident as long as some of the less important characters don't come up. (Edna etc)
    Do you have any predictions for certain characters/themes? OMAM - Extract on Curleys appearance. Masculinity on the ranch. AIC - Sheila/ Gerald and Tension through the the play.

    For Sunlight on the Grass I'd predict two of these potential three: 'On Seeing the 100% Perfect Girl One Beautiful April Morning', 'Something Old, Something New' and 'My Polish Teacher's Tie'.

    Lord of the Flies: People are predicting there'll be emphasis of some sort on the character of Simon.
