    Ok so I have analysed the character Mr Birling in 'An Inspector Calls' but I only analysed Mr Birling in Act 1 and left out the other acts.

    I was wondering do I need to analyse the characters in all the acts or will one be ok?
    I am definitely analysing the characters in all the acts but was just wondering this because I could just mainly focus on one act instead but still know a lot about the other acts or is that a really bad idea?

    you should try to do little pieces from all the acts to show you have an awareness of the play as a whole which will get your marks for structural analysis too

    You should understand how Mr Birling changes, or doesn't, throughout the play. Compare this to how the younger characters change. What do they represent.. morality.. institution.. society...

    You should try analysing other main characters such as Sheila e.g she was the first to accept responsibility and became more open minded of socialism,

    Yup I am haha. Don't think it would be a good idea analysing just Mr Birling as the other characters can come into the exam as well lol
    Thank you so much!
