    Inspector calls because I like how you can choose the question. I have really good notes on Sheila too so I hope she comes up. I also like Priestley's message, it's easy to understand. OMAM is pretty hard because you can't really prepare for the extract question and you can't choose which question you do. Also, poetry is so hard because there's so much to learn and you can't really prepare for the unseen poetry. What about you?

    My strongest is actually the OMAM because I feel like I know the characters inside out, and have a good understanding of the novel. It's such a great book. And An Inspector Calls is slightly hard for me, as I'm either on a B/A. Poetry is great though I know this thread is lit, but how are you finding lang?

    Ahh ok well that's good. I'm working on Slim right now then I need to do Curley's Wife for this stupid mock i have on monday. I really don't need another mock, it's stupid. OMAM has so many connotations like "the room darkens gradually" and all the animal connotations. I prefer AIC, but i still need to do the inspector :/ You like poetry? Lol i don't. it messes my brain up completely. For me lang is so much easier... i did well on the mock. I just like the structure of it. What about you?

    Yeah -age would be an ok one. But for me, i much prefer doing characters because I've planned out all my essays for pretty much all of the characters. I just have Gerald to finish and the Inspector to start. So I think I will always choose a character, no matter what.
    And well considering we're the last year to do this spec I think it might be the American dream. It might say how Candy represents the American dream. Or maybe Curley will come up, he hasn't yet.
    Wbu?
    I really feeling like a question involving the animals significance is going to appear for part B and part A will be to analyse Candys dog shooting scene

    Does anyone know what the character and voice poems were last year? Just so that I can try and predict what they'll be this year. So far, these are the ones that I have seen haven't been done yet:
    The Clown Punk
    Medusa
    Brendon Gallacher
    Give
    My Last Duchess
    The Hunchback in the Park
    The Ruined Maid
    (from 2012-2014, I had a look at the past papers. ^Those are the ones that didn't come up, so will be more likely to be in the one this year^) Although it all depends on which ones were done last year. I hope we get Medusa and The River God, they're both really easy

    If anyone's looking for resources I really recommend Brodie's Notes. They were written in like the 90's but they're literally sooooo good, they go in to so much detail and analysis pretty much everything. You can get them on Amazon/Ebay for really cheap and there's ones for OMAM, LOTF, AIC and TKAM.

    Other themes include gender, fate/destiny, strength/ weakness, fraternity

    Also btw for my mock exam they gave us a question on Crooks. We'd never done him in class before so I was really unprepared for it and i got half marks for OMAM and 24/34 for AIC and still only got a B overall. So I wouldn't advise doing that if you want more than a B... just saying

    Hey thank you so much! Haha I am hoping for at least a B in English Lit but am aiming for an A/A*!
    Just checked grade boundaries from 2013-2015 and for an A it was around 45 haha and an A* was around 6-7 marks more so yh my idea isn't that great haha :P
    I just don't know how to revise for OMAM, find it so difficult lol. Right now, I've analysed Curley and his wife, Crooks and the theme racism, the theme American Dream (however need a few more quotes) but I feel like I am just doing useless revision and none of this will help me!
