    American Dream perhaps for OMAM as we are the last year, so they may go for the most obvious one that everyone knows the most about( here's hoping)

    Or for AIC it could be like a relationship question. Personally I'm praying it's Sheila or Gerald or both lol.

    For inspector calls, I have a strong feeling that Gerald will come up. As stated above, possibly Sheila, so they may highlight the importance of the youth being adaptable to change.

    Here is a list of which poems have come up so far (June 2011 - June 2015), the only ones that haven't come up so far are Brothers, In Paris with You and To His Coy Mistress, though some (e.g. The Manhunt and The Farmer's Bride) come up more than once. The repeats have only happened in the last two years, so I'm thinking there is going to be another repeat this year, so as far as predictions go I think In Paris with You and one of the poems that has already showed up (maybe one of the sonnets *shrugs*) - that's my guess as far as Poetry goes. As for the Of Mice and Men/ An Inspector Calls question - I have no clue

    Here is the list*:
    Born Yesterday –Phillip Larkin
    Brothers –Andrew Forster
    Ghazal – MimiKhalvati
    Harmonium –Simon Armitage
    Hour – Carol AnnDuffy
    In Paris withYou – James Fenton
    Nettles – VernonScannell
    Praise Song forMy Mother – Grace Nichols
    Quickdraw –Carol Ann Duffy
    Sister Maude –Christina Georgina Rossetti
    Sonnet 116 –Shakespeare
    Sonnet 43 –Elizabeth Barrett Browning
    TheFarmer’s Bride – Charlotte Mew*2
    TheManhunt – Simon Armitage*2
    To His CoyMistress – Andrew Marvell

    * Italics - Showed up twice
    No formatting - Showed up once
    Bold - Hasn't showed up yet

    I think that praise song to my mother an harmonium will come up, or a sonnet. They're what I am revising most.

    I think the age gap will come up in AIC. Why Gerald? I can't think of a question they could centre around him for 30 marks

    Don't forget, that they have never done a question devoted to Curly for OMaM. Since the questions on OMaM hasn't done any repeats yet, the odds of Curly appearing for the real thing might be quite likely.
