Hi

I'm going to be taking an English exam on the 6th June. My exam is going to have two questions about Of Mice and Men. I just want to know how to achieve full marks.

This is is what it says in the mark scheme:
• Perceptive understanding of the text
• Perceptive understanding of the writer's ideas
• Perceptive understanding of how the writer uses language
• Discriminating reference to the extract to support response.

I just want to know how to achieve all these bullet points.

There is no Of Mice and Men in the exam. It is a LANGUAGE exam, not a LITERATURE exam. I do edexcel as well so I will have the exam on 6th June too.

For Language Paper1, the questions are:
1) 1 mark Q - Find a quotation in specified lines
2) 2 mark Q - Find two quotations or use your own words
3) 6 mark Q - Analyse language and structure
4) 15 mark Q - Comment on setting, ideas, themes and events and come up with a suitable judgement.
5) 40 mark Q - Writing Task
6) 40 mark Q - Writing Task
*CHOOSE BETWEEN QUESTION 5 and 6
Hope this helps for the Language paper 1 and remember Of Mice and Men comes in the literature paper so do not get confused.

Oh great, I just found out that you retaking a language exam for the 4th time!
And I just wasted my time by typing what you require in the new spec.

Try to get a pass this time as reading through your previous posts, I think you really need to! A C Grade is so easy! Anyone can get that! Just a bit more effort.

Hi Taziz99

I am doing the same exam on 6.6.2017.

a check list that can help:
-write about 3 paragraphs for the first question and about 5/6 paragraphs for the second
-make sure you mention the writer's name: Steinbeck
- focus on the effect of the language features on the reader
-use embedded short quotes
-explain the effect of the quote or language feature
-use SWA ( single word Analysis)
-Use language terminology to impress the examiner ( eg para-linguistic features, elision, repetition, interrogatives)

Best of luck
