    For part B i basically said that the American dream cannot be achieved to the extent that they wanted, but it can be achieved to a certain degree, but the society was too hopeful and aimed too high. I supported it by saying about Slim and George right at the end of the novel? Im not sure if its valid or if a actually answered the question.

    Oh honey.....sorry but you sound a bit screwed. Hopefully you'll get marks for some of the bits you wrote about Sheila....just none for comparison.

    Hi guys do you think the grade boundaries for this exam will be higher or lower than last year's (53/68 = A*, 45/68 = A etc)? A lot of people are either saying that they found it great, whereas others are saying it went pretty badly - there seems to be 2 extremes!
    I think it's going to be lower for some reason. I think that it went well but most of the people in my year didn't even finish it and everyone said they found it iffy.

    (Repost from what I said in another thread):

    Section A: An Inspector Calls

    Spent ages deciding what question to do. Ended up picking the conflict question. Most people in my year did the Gerald and Sheila question.
    I spoke about conflict between Inspector and Birling, Eric and Birling, and Sheila and Mrs B. My main argument was that the conflict between the family was presented as a means of emphasising the contrast between the old and new generation. I wanted to say so much more (especially the conflict between Birling's and the Inspector's ideologies) but I didn't want to cut into my Section B time. Gutted.

    Section B: Of Mice And Men

    Absolutely loved the extract. It was predicted to come up (we went over the exact extract in class). Both parts went smoothly, although I do feel I waffled a bit. For the dreams question I spoke about Candy (with a bit of George). Wanted to squeeze Crooks in but I was running out of time.

    I'm not too sure what I got, hoping for an A* but as it's English, there is the small chance it could go extremely wrong.

    I did the same question for you for AIC and I talked about how Mr Birling talks about how the war won't happen before the Inspector arrives and I talked about the conflict between the younger and older generation and for the last paragraph I talked about the 'fire,blood and anguish' thing in the Inspectors last speech. Do you think those are good points or nah?

    Definitely good points.
    The Inspector's final speech was something I really wanted to talk about, but as I said, I was running out of time. If I started writing about it, it would have cut into my OMAM time (which wouldn't have been a good idea as they are worth the same amount of marks).

    I did the conflict question in AIC but structured it like a theme question. Doing one paragraph on gender conflict, one about age conflict and one about class conflict, using examples for each and putting in the context of the time.

    Hi ya, the question stated that you could either talk about one or more characters. As long as if you showed close language analysis that linked to the question, then you should be fine. As well as linking the extract, I also integrated quotes to represent how they linked to society, and how Steinbeck demonstrates this throughout the novella. Don't be concerned, you'll be fine. The grade boundaries will hopefully be generous.
    Wahhhh!? I wrote about george was that not right? I thought it meant one other than lennie!?

    Hey, I did question 17 for AIC where it asks you to talk about how Sheila and Gerald's relationship changes. I talked about how at the start she is all happy when Gerald buys her that ring which shows that she's materialistic? I also spoke about how Sheila says to Gerald "we aren't the same anymore" and I wrote that Sheila accepts the blame whereas Gerald does not. I wrote many more things but I just wanted to know if these are correct.

    Thank you.

    I was going to do this! I was wondering if we could talk about the different types of conflict in the play - as you said, class and gender. Decided to play it safe as I spent too much time planning for the Sheila and Gerald question, only to do the conflict question in the end! :mad:
    bye bye A*
