Hi for Mice and men it said "speak about context,historical background and releate this to dreams"(or something like that).Then it said "Use 1 or two characters"

However i spoke about 3 .I spoke about George and Lennie(detailed),Slim and carlson (lack of dream)(not so detailed) and Curley wife(detailed).What happens ?Do i get disqualified

My friend said that they mark the first two.My teacher said it doesn't matter,you pick up marks regardless,(another teacher also confirmed this).But one teacher said "The most two detaild ones are picked"
Which ones are right?

I'd say listen to the other two teachers - my friend did this and my English teacher said the same, they might mark it a little more harshly but they won't just refuse to, so it's 3 v 1 :P

I'm not 100% sure what they'll do, but if it makes you feel any better I did the exact same thing

I analysed three, but regarded George and Lennie as one person, I also analysed Crooks.

Hopefully :yy: I found the extract quite difficult. I spent too long on the first section so I only had a short amount of time for OMAM and ended up writing 3 rubbish paragraphs for the extract and then literally crammed everything I knew for part b
