    so with the mice and men section we are only given an extract not the actual whole book to find quotes
    for part a we have to analyse an extract , and for part b we're given a clean copy of mice and men

    [QUOTE=Tiara006;65045509]That would be a good question! Great, thanks[/QUOT

    Another question could be how is the play presented as a psychological drama

    oh I didn't know that. I'm basically crying right now. it's not the task it's because I spend a lot of time analysing and my timing is so bad. 22 mins 30 secs to answer each bit in that much detail is so impossible.

    I'd recommend analysing at least 2 quotes in lots of detail for part a and 2 points in part b - i normally do this for every english lit question and I've got A and A*s in my mocks hopefully thats useful!

    oh ok that's great. so a person suggested using pedal - point evidence device analyse link on this forum. I normally use PEE but I think this is better. so if I do this twice for each part I should be good. I have printed off last years unit 1 exam paper I'm going to try that now timed and see how it goes.

    thanks

    Hey! I'm studying the novel Of Mice and Men, the play An Inspector Calls and the relationships cluster.

    For the OMAM section in the exam tomorrow I feel as if it could be about animal imagery and how Steinbeck reflects society's values through the various animals in the rest of the novel. For example, Candy's dog was shot due to it being old and useless. For AIC I was thinking maybe a question on the character of Sheila

    I revise by doing mindmaps and watching videos on GCSEPod and then making notes from those videos. For poetry I suggest creating mindmaps as you can visualize it during exams.

    Sheila is pretty much the best character to write about in terms of how her views change throughout the play. At the start she is a common Woman in the 1990's. After the Inspector comes, she takes from his views and begins to speak like him.
    Just write about how the Inspector changes her views about society.
