i just said this on one thread:

Im doing inspector calls and as far as I know, they won't give you a question which no one can answer. Since there are no tiers, the question will be simple so most students can answer it and the examiners can differentiate between high and low level students.

My advice would be to look at all the characters and just learn the message Priestley is conveying through them. Also, take a look at themes because I think it will either be on 'Family Life in 20th Century' or 'Men and Women'. Saying that, don't take my word for it and revise other themes such as social responsibility and young vs old too. Good Luck in your exams.
For poetry, look at all the poems. Don't rely on one poem coming up because if it doesn't come up, you will be left stranded and the poetry section is worth 24 marks so don't risk it. One helpful tip would be to link poems and learn the basics so you can at lest write 2 paragraphs on any poem that comes up. This would secure you a level 4 and to get to level 5 and 6, add more information and write 1-2 more paragraphs if you know the poem in detail.

For Inspector Calls it'll be 1 question on a theme and 1 question on a character that you can choose from. Hopefully it'll be something like responsibility/generation gap/social divide and then maybe Mr/Mrs B for characters. If anyone remembers the spec questions and wants to debunk my theories stated above let me know and I can edit this.

The questions available in the specimen paper for inspector calls were how Sheila changes through Inspector Calls and how Priestley explores responsibility in An Inspector Calls.

So it will most likely not be on responsibility. And I have no predictions as there are so many themes available for it and all the characters are kind of equal in importance.

It definitely wont be "Storm On The Island" because that was in the mock/specimen paper. Im thinking Ozymandias or London if AQA are nice or Checking out me History and Tissue if they are mean!

I think the paper will be straight foward cause paper 1 questions on macbeth and jekyll and hyde were quite good. I think Inspector calls will be on Goole or Mr.Birling and the theme question will be on gender or class. I predict Kamize, War photographer or London for poems.

Hi just so you know the specimen paper was Social Responsibility for the theme and how does Sheila change for the character. Thanks!

Could The Question About How Sheila Changes In The Play Come Up Though?

being the first year, it should be something as simple as " how does Prestley presents Sheila in the play" or "talk about social responsibility".

I THINK it will be a short poem b/c no tier so they need to help out people who would have done foundation tier in the old spec

yeah something like that. i kinda have a feeling that it could be family relationships because we got love relationships for the mock exam (sonnet 29 could have been compared to any other romantic love poem so i believe family relationship could come up). however, make sure you have revised all poems for your exam. Dont convince yourself that a ceratain poem will come up.
