    I wrote 8, four for Woman in Black, four for OMAM.

    I'm so unsure of how I did in OMAM, I wrote very different things to a lot of other people. I wrote about how the voices created a crescendo to Lennie's death and how the men being "much" closer showed how the time was quickly running out for George and how he wished he had more time. I also wrote about how "crashing" illustrated the crashing of George and Lennie's dream and suggested carelessness and it all happening very fast and other bull... I also wrote about Curley's wife and Slim for part B! Did anyone else do the same?
    Haha I did the time thing as well. But I also wrote about how the seasonal imagery refers to their dreams and hopes and the darkness of the (forgot name lol) refers to their fate, so their dreams will always be covered by darkness. And then I wrote how 'no more trouble' is a metaphor for Lennie etc haha.

    guys im so scared


    I'm predicted an A/A* from my school but today when I sat my exam I literally panicked and my time management was completely bad And I forgot to write a conclusion


    Idk whether I can achieve an A if I didn't finish my work (I took the aqa paper today)


    I want to do Eng Lit for A levels as well, do you think I can achieve an A (I got band 5 in my controlled assessment and I still have the poetry cluster exam left)
    My teacher told us to not worry too much about conclusions so I don't think they're marked. You should be fine, just try your best on the poetry exam! Good luck xx

    How much did you write for AIC and OMAM? I wrote about 5 sides for AIC but then only about 2 sides OMAM (both questions) and my hand writing it fairly large - especially when I rush. What contextual points did you include for OMAM?

    You should be fine. My friend analysed three but as long as you've got detailed, strong points with good interpretations you should be fine
    Ahh thank you I sure hope so!!!

    For the OMAM context question I wrote about Candy and Curley's wife, I ran out of time and only wrote 2 paragraphs on Candy and one for Curley's wife though.
    For Candy I wrote about how a worker's status in 1930's America was based on how efficient their work was on the ranch so because he has an injury his status has been taken away from him and now George and Lennie's dream is the only thing he has. I also wrote about how he is already low in the social hierarchy and represents the forgotten generation of elderly people so the only person he can take his anger out is on the dead body of Curley's wife when his dream is destroyed.
    For Curley's wife I wrote that although women were given the vote in 1920's America (thank you gcse history) they still faced discrimination and ill-treatment and the Great Depression resulted in cinema declining in growth so being a woman with a big dream meant that her dream to be in the movies was unattainable xx

    Anyone have any ideas what might come up for the Character and Voice cluster? I'm hoping something that goes well with Ozymandias. Love this poem

    I think you've done fine. Failing, as in below a C, would mean you'd have to get under 30 marks which is less than ONE of the essays
