I'm studying the exact same literature texts and my teacher usually predicts correctly the themes and characters which might come up.
For omom, we are predicting a George and Lennie (friendship) essay or possibly a slim essay (possibly linked to the theme of justice or violence).
For a Christmas Carol, we have predicted something along the lines of christmas and religion .
For blood brothers, we have a feelings that there might be a possible question on the narrator or sammy or the theme of Marilyn Monroe.

For your writing exam, I think there might be formal letter and an informal letter. There hasn't be an informal letter for a few years, I think. There is always a formal writing task in this exam, so a report could also be a possibility.

Hope this can be of some help.

Curley will come up for Of Mice And Men.
It will not because a Curley essay question came up on the January English literature resit. So that is a definite no

I think Simon or Jack could come up on the LOTF exam as these characters haven't featured on any wjec exams before Willls
As for AVFTB, I'm not too sure.

Literature essay questions are context focused now so we need to focus on things like loneliness as a migrant worker - just for an example with Of Mice and Men

Totally agree. My English teacher predicts that a character essay question on Curley's wife, George, and slim. A theme question on animal reference might come up.

I think Curley's wife would be such a good question. There is so many contextual points to make about her. Also unseen poetry is supposed to be the section to worry about least because any interpretation is valid with evidence

Umm I only study OMAM and I do Heroes and AIC...However for OMAM-it could've been Curley's Wife...but she came up in the January paper..so there's a possibility of Slim...and maybe for Curley's Wife there would be a possibility that there would be a question based on women's class, victims of society etc..so for that, you could do Curley's Wife, Aunt Clara and the ladies at the cathouses...hope this helps!
