hmm, did u write enough? just remember when ur doing the test always try to do all the essay rather than finish 1 wonderfully and leave 2 blank. (If ur quick enough probably write about 700, if not them u should write at least 450)
Now, my few tips about section c, modern prose
off topic will affect a lot on ur grade, so make urself a rough structure first. eg[Of Mice and Men, George]:
body2: smart, intelligent
(PS: this structure is only used when they ask: explore the character xxx)
when it is asking the significant of characters always write about how the character represent the society first, eg:
I would write: George is a product in the 1930s, he's reflects the xxx society at that time...
rather than: George is an aggressive man, we know this through...
another point is that section c always requires for detailed understanding of character and understanding of context!!! otherwise you'll lose at least 1/3 of marks! therefore u have to mention context as well! this need to be linked naturally through paragraphs, eg: As the dog is useless, Curly kills the dog, which shows the creulty of the society (don't stop here, say more!), the workers only live in the present, and they don't care about what happened in the past... (u can normally stop here but! If u can, say even more), which also reflects the name of the novella: OMAM...(then explain the the name of novella)
for conclusion, don't add any new ideas but just summary what u've said in ur body paragraphs.
intro: what I'm going to say
body 1: key idea 1
body 2: key idea 2
body 3: key idea 3
conclusions: what I've said
it is going to be even better it u can show some critical thinking through the essay but it is not necessary
