    Revision wise I'm just making lots of notes on all the characters and themes and the context of McCarthyism ect.
    I also have the York Notes revision guide which I am finding to be very helpful, so I would recommend getting one of those, it was only £2 or so on Amazon
    Good luck with your revision! Xxxx

    I'm betting The Of Mice And Men questions will be on Carlson - just to piss everyone off and make our lives so much harder !!
    Their is so much you can actually say, via that scene with the Dog though Do you think its hard to get 100UMS on the unit 1 exam?

    I need help analysing the dog shooting scene
    "The Dog" represents an sense of security for Candy, an companion in the predatory world. Yet when it live is taken, it conveys how callous and shallow the society is.

    What was the other option except bayonet charge? Coz I don't think neither of them 2 r going to come up.
    It is high likely to get two out of futility, the falling leaves, flag, the right word, belfast confetti and poppies depending on the 2nd option in 2015.
    Most likely Belfast Confetti and Futility.

    This will be the last year of the spec I did :emo:
    What grade did you obtain in your qualification? If you don't mind me asking you.

    Hey All, I'm doing OMAM and AIC and the relationships cluster. Quite a lot of predictions of 'To his coy mistress' for poetry, I hope it does come up as weirdly enough it's one of my best poems to compare.
    I was wondering if anyone has any tips for the OMAM section of the paper, I know the examiner asks us to answer question a then b or question a and b, does anyone know if it's okay to answer both questions together as a full essay? I feel I can do it better that way considering we only have 45 minutes. Also any general tips I would appreciate.

    To His Coy Mistress is a good poem for analysis :yes:

    Don't answer the two questions together - they are marked differently and ask for different things they have given you enough time for the type of detail and essay they want

    They are actually marked both together out of 36, although one is for themes and ideas and the other context, they use the same mark scheme, I was just thinking it would be fine to merge them together.
    But thanks for the advice

    The safest thing to do is generally exactly what the paper asks you to do - it's the easiest way to hit all of the things they want, otherwise they would just get everyone to write them combined
