    I felt like I did so well with AIC... but that was because I spent far too long on it. I had like 10 minutes left to write an essay on part B OMAM :facepalm:

    how many paras did u write? Because I wrote 2 long paras which included a point for each and then i brought 2-3 evidences for each and explained them? idk....
    i only wrote 6 sides in total for the whole exam...i feel like that isnt enough
    i wrote just over 5 pages, i think 6 is enough - have faith.
    i wrote 3 loooooong paragraphs for AIC with additional evidence and layering of points like you did to support my points for Mr Birling's foolishness and ignorance and Mr inspector's authority and how he shows Priestly's message for socialism.

    For the AIC question 18 conflict one I wrote about the conflict between generations and a more internal conflict Eric experiences. I found the OMAM question difficult as we hadn't really gone over it in class (we revised Carlson) so I decided to include him in my answer 😂

    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
    Oh my god, I thought it only asked for one! I only did Abigail. Well, that just confirmed my failure !

    I did the AIC conflict questions and said:
    Conflict in family due to social class shown in stage directions
    Conflict in family due to age gap shown by family arguments
    The theme of central misunderstanding over responsibility causes conflict in the family
    How the cyclical nature of the play foreshadows conflict unless society changes

    For the first OMAM question:
    The cyclical nature in the description of the setting foreshadows another death/no change in behaviour will result in death
    The religious imagery of the nobleness and duty of Lennie's actions
    The evil imagery behind the Luger gun and how Darwinism meant Lennie had to die

    For the second part of OMAM:
    Crooks represents black people of the time and he wanted companionship
    His dream was destined to fail because he was less valued by society and he knew as he'd seen it all before
    Candy is reflected by his dog as a burden who is doomed due to the Darwinian attitude (will never be valued much)
    Conclusion that none of these dreams will come true due to an unwillingness for social change

    For TKAM I wrote about similes, aural imagery, slowing down of time and contrast with the earlier scene where Atticus shoots Tim Johnson (the dog) for part a. In part b, I wrote about Atticus's treatment of black people, Mr Ewell, Mr Gilmer's patronisingly calling Tom Robinson 'boy' throughout the trial, the lynch mob, and Dolphus Raymond. I wanted to speak about the article in the Maycomb Tribute as well but I didn't have enough time

    You'll be fine! I only focused on Abigail and Elizabeth so I'm not sure if I answered it correctly
    But isnt that two women that they were asking for ? Im guessing u have answered it correctly

    For AIC I included stuff about stage directions and how the doorbell interrupts mr Birling so there is conflict between him and the inspector (socialism vs capitalism) and I talked about conflict between the young and the old generation but I forgot to include different interpretations . Do you think it was really important to do that or can I cover up for it in the unit 2 exam and still do well.

    Oh man I don't even know how I did:
    I did LOTF and OMAM,
    For the LOTF, I did the second question and just went on about Piggy's glasses for aaaaaages! I don't know if I've accidentally summarized the book, so yeah...I also said something about the actual LOTF, but then the invigilator said 45 minutes left and I ran to the next question...

    Then for OMAM, I only wrote a paragraph (3/4 of a page) for the first question because I had no idea how to spread out the marks. The last question though

    So yeah, dunno how I did!

    So happy with this exam! Felt really fast and honestly quite easy.

    Mock: A*
    Prediction: A

    Inspector Calls:
    Easy question on the relationship between Gerald Croft and Sheila throughout the play. Noted that the relationship begins to break down as Sheila finds out that Gerald has had a mistress etc.

    OMAM:
    Pretty good question on Steinbecks way of leading up to the death of Lennie. Noted that he creates nostalgia by visiting the lake, emotional connection between reader and finally the rushed killing of him.

    (b):
    Only had 10mins to do this, didn't budget my time well enough. Stated the american dream relative to the time the novel was set, a lot of immigrants at that time wanted the American Dream, saw that its obtained by work Referenced why Lennie was so focused on that, further reinforced by stating Candy also jumped on board - willing to give lots of money after only knowing them for a day.

    Did 9 pages, dropped marks on part (b) 100%
    After Eng Lang CIE I was dreading this :P!

    Some predicted questions here done by my school. For AIC and OMAM. The OMAM one is quite picky but my teachers reckon that as it is the last year, the question could be about theme rather than character. Other OMAM predictions include nature and Curley.
    Thank you so much for posting this! I only do of mice and men and did the practise question yesterday and the part b question came up! Thank you so much

    I done the exam last year in June 2015 and I had 11 minutes to read the passage and write both part (a) and part (b) for of mice and men, and I almost got an A* in that same exam! Don't worry.

    I did the same thing as you, but I also did conflict between Gerald and Sheila based on levels of morality. I didn't really do alternative interpretations, don't really think it's a key criteria? I'm sure you'll do really well, I'm happy with my inspector calls section (but omam was a little disappointing for me)
