I was wondering if anyone had a list or some suggestions for themes/practice questions that might come up in either of the AQA English Literature papers. I want to do some practice essays but i don't really see the point in past papers for English Lit as these will likely not come up. The texts I'm doing are An Inspector calls and Of Mice and Men, and the cluster I am doing in Conflict.
Thanks

Many people think that as it's the last exam with those specifications part b on 'of mice and men' will be on settings and part a, on 'Curley' as it has not come up in a while. For 'an inspector call's' it may be 'sheila' or the 'Inspector'. For conflict I have no idea.

Curley has and so has the death of his wife. I did past papers on them. Curley came up in 2013 I think.

Curley has never come up before, I think it might be him - or possibly dreams?

An Inspector Calls: Sybil Birling or Gerald- Arthur Birling (last time he came up: 2015), Eva (2014) Eric (2013), The Inspector (2012), Sheila (2011)

My teacher has a feeling about a theme question on moral responsibility?

I did my English Lit last year and our extract was just before Curley's wife was about to die. I would focus on revising the text after and before maim events too because they did that to us.

June 2015, Q17: Arthur Birling describes himself as ‘a hard-headed, practical man of business’. How does Priestley present this and other views of Arthur Birling in An Inspector Calls?

Thanks

June 2014, Q17: How does Priestley present ideas about gender in An Inspector Calls?

Tbh, no questions in particular - just once I understand how to write it in a paragraph, it should be fine :P.

You both can switch each others questions I don't mind tbh - you can answer whichever one you like .

Thanks
