Agh I loved the Inspector Calls question so much (chose conflict)
I wrote that there was a nuanced conflict between the ideas of Capitalism, Isolationism and Economic Individualism (represent by Arthur Birling) and the ideas of Economic Individualism and Socialism (represented by the Inspector) and compared the two speeches made by Arthur Birling (at the beginning) and the Inspector (at the end). I mentioned that Arthur Birling displayed hubris and filled his speech with conjecture due to dramatic irony (e.g. Titanic is unsinkable) whereas the Inspector has a well thought out speech and uses alliteration and tricolons (millions and millions and millions of Eva Smiths...) to show that Socialism was a more thought out plan.Then I said that there was a conflict between the proletariat (e.g. Edna) and the bourgoise (e.g. Birlings) and that the proletariat are struggling to find a voice in Edwardian Britain shown by Edna's lack of appearance in the play and that she says the eponymous line "please, sir, an inspector's called" showing that the inspector represents people like Edna and the fact that she calls Arthur "sir" shows she is subordinate (conflict between classes)Final point was conflict between women in their own class fighting for a voice in a patriarchal society (e.g. Mrs Birling says she'll have to get used to it when Gerald is away all summer showing how voiceless women were in Edwardian so society etc xx
Other book is To Kill a Mockingbird tho x

I did TKAM and AIC and I feel that the questions were really easy but the extract for TKAM was quite difficult, but I feel that if everyone found it easy, I probs did quite bad as I didn't go in detail as much as I could have; I kept on getting distracted

I kept getting distracted as well!! Apart from Xomputer Science English is my worst subject and I only made notes for AIC on the morning before my exam when I was in bed so I wasn't sure how well I would do.
I'm sure you've done fine for both of the sections tho what did you write? Xx
