Who did conflict in AIC ?
I did that question, I wrote about conflict between social classes (ie the strike eva was involved in), how they need to change to prevent war (or more conflict) and conflict within families. I linked them together in my conclusion. My essay was a bit rambly and I probably should have done families first and built it up, because it was a bit anti climatic placed after the one about war, but I think it was mostly okay because I talked a lot about Priestley's message and offered alternative interpretations as well as trying to analyse language.

Was the first question on the Crucible to analyse the role of TWO women or one?
The question said to choose 2 for the basis of your answer, but i think it was to analyse women as a whole group of people so I'm scared incase I messed it up!!

I thought the OMAM passage was awful, really wanted it to about a character
same, there were some points in the essay that i found but i didnt necessarily know how to develop it into a good answer...tbh it wasnt the BEST passage for analysis

The short stories questions were beautiful. The only one I'd revised, Polish Teacher's Tie, was on the paper. Hell yes

I found it ok...

Not sure if I really answered the question for the Gerald and Sheila question - I mainly just talked about the foreshadowing in the first scene oops

Loved the passage, didn't have much time for the (b) part for OMAM (literally wrote about half a page)

Who did conflict in AIC ?
I did question 18 so conflict in AIC, i found this one so good as i did this for my coursework but only realised it after the exam. there was so much you could talk about for Q18 including Gerald and Sheila which is what they gave for Q17.
for Q18 i talked about socialism vs capitalism represented by the inspector and Mr Birling. then i talked about social class divide shown by eva vs mr and mrs Birling, i dont know if ive done enough to get over 28/34. im aiming for 26.

For the Crucible, I only wrote about how Miller presented two of the women (Elizabeth and Abigail), and I'm so scared incase I completely messed it up Of Mice and Men wasn't too bad, although I dont think i wrote enough for part b

That was ok?

Chose Sheila and Gerald for AIC and did TKAM - the AIC questions were reasonable I thought, and the TKAM passage was good (although the part b was very broad). Only wrote 5 sides in total!

I said their relationship at the start is happy but with underlying tension, talked about when it starts to break down ("You've been put through it - now you want to see someone else put through it") and then at the end when she refuses the ring.

OMG i thought i was the only one what i did was how they both use religion although differently . Rebecca and abigail That was the main thing i compared and i also refrence the fact on John and how saw the girls as jangling the keys of the kingdom where abigail was the leader having a negative influence on proctor and salem whereas Rebecca had a positive influence and found the shred of goodness in him.

Yeah I made the exact same points but I didn't use that quote you used, I used one where Gerald is patronising Sheila "it's been a long exciting tiring day", which isn't really showing how their relationship changed

You'll be fine! I only focused on Abigail and Elizabeth so I'm not sure if I answered it correctly
