    I have been told different things from different teachers. What has been said to you about whether we need to use context in the Heroes section of the English Literature Paper, Unit 2A, GCSE?

    my teacher said not to use context UNLESS it applies to the question, so for like war, you can include a little bit of context about pearl harbour.
    if you're doing AIC, then context matters more, but again, only if it applies to the question, so last year was about attitudes towards women i think, that's where you can include context

    Thanks so much for your help I didn't use it for Heroes. I did for An Inspector Calls, because we were told that that was the most important AO for that. Hope it went well for you, as I presume you did the exam yesterday?
