    I'm sitting my Edexcel English Literature: Understanding Prose exam tomorrow morning. My chosen novels are Animal Farm and Of Mice and Men. I feel reasonably confident, but does anyone have any tips they can offer? Predicted questions, structure of answers etc.

    So am I.
    I think that the character could be Slim as he has not yet come up in previous exams.

    THANK GOD SLIM CAME UP I LITERALLY PRAYED FOR WEEKS
    I didn't think animal farm was that bad, i mean "power" is basically the main theme!! there is loads to write about napoleon and fortunately i had anaylzed that extract as part of my revision. Let's hope I scraped an A, perhaps an A* if I'm lucky. Did everyone do Slim, and if so how did you find it? What did you put for Social Historical??

    I thought the Animal Farm Question was so easy it came up in most extracts when revising!
    I also chose the Violence question in OMAM but I wish I did Slim now!

    In terms of historical context, i said that he's just like the rest of the ranchmen (migrant workers) but he accepted reality for what it is and he's the only character that does not have a dream. To put it simply.
