I really struggle with the text I learnt in school which is 'The Sign of Four' because of the amount of writers techniques and how it's written, I also find it hard to analyse and find quotes. I find the plot confusing, too. So, I've been learning 'A christmas Carol' instead as I'm more familiar with it as it is a well-known christmas classic movie and there are more shorter and obvious quotes. The plot is also a lot simpler and there aren't many main characters apart from the ghosts which will probably also link to Scrooge's behaviours/ personality.

I was just wondering if it is possible for me to do a question on 'A Christmas Carol' instead of 'The Sign of Four' in the exam

Response is highly appreciated!

The examiner isn't going to know which book you studied in school. You can do any question you want.

Be careful though. You need to know the context, etc. for a higher grade, especially for AQA.

Writer's technique is something you need to write about, if there's a lot in sign of four surely that gives you more to write about?
