Could you expand on the question? I did inspector calls for my mock a few months ago and i wrote a lot of my exam on the links between different characters. For example, you can find lots of similarities between Sheila and Eva, so talk about their difference in class being ironic because in some ways they’re really similar. You can also write about the links between Mr Birling and the inspector. I focused on Mr Birling talking about how the titanic won’t ever sink and ‘silly war scares’ (dramatic irony) whilst the inspector was immediately knowledgeable and insightful,
so the audience would automatically favour the inspector. Don’t forgot the play was written after the war & the titanic so i’m guessing it would horrify the audience that Mr Birling was so ignorant. Or you could focus on the Inspector’s influence on the young compared to the older generation (Sheila & Eric were very remorseful yet Mr & Mrs Birling remained unaffected). I find with AIC it’s much easier to talk about things like contrast & foreshadowing than anything else, it’s not like the play is full of metaphors and imagery. If you’ve got a more specific question let me know and i’ll try to help, An Inspector Calls is probably my best thing in english )
