Not sure which exam board you're on, but I'm assuming AQA since that's also when my next paper is. On the website they've written this: although not an exhaustive list of aspects of Modern times, areas that can usefully be explored include: wars and the legacy of wars; personal and social identity; changing morality and social structures; gender, class, race and ethnicity; political upheaval and change; resistance and rebellion; imperialism, post-imperialism and nationalism; engagement with the social, political, personal and literary issues which have helped to shape the latter half of the 20th century and the early decades of the 21st century.

So, essentially, they reserve the right to whack down anything on that list, and then some other stuff if they feel like it. I'm also doing The Handmaid's Tale, but I've got All My Sons and Skirrid Hill instead of streetcar and feminine gospels.

Also - as all 3 of your texts are core texts, you can compare any of them on section B, so long as you answer the section A question on the text that's left.

If you do do the AQA spec, how did you find paper 1 yesterday?
