Do you have any tips for the 40 mark essay question in the English Literature paper (Of Mice and Men)?

How do I know what quotes to use, where to find them, how to evaluate them etc?

Will I get extra paper if I need some and will my planning also have to be handed in?

Thank you!

Hi! You will get an 8 page answer booklet to write in but if you use this all up, you just ask the invigilators and they will give you an additional answer booklet that has 4 pages in. All your planning you do in your answer booklet but you cross it through so that it is still legible but they know not to mark it.

In terms of quotes, you will be allowed to have a clean copy of the book so you can find them but it helps if you revise some of them. What I do is to learn some quotes from important events as well as ones that apply specifically to certain characters. That way you don't have to waste time searching for them in the exam. Good luck! I hope all your exams go well!

hey I think you are allowed your clean copy of the of mice and men novel, but you have to take it in yourself, also you will be allowed extra paper if you put your hand up for it during the exam, planning can be handed in but wont be marked, you may need to cross through it so they dont think its your real thing
