Written by subject specialists that teach at top independent schools, these guides explain how questions should be approached. The aim is to make an able student as aware as possible of the key points and issues that an aspiring A* grade student must target in the examination.
The ‘Of Mice and Men’ question will account for 20% of a student’s final GCSE English Literature grade so it is vital that an aspirational A/A* student performs well on this section of the examination.
This guide is written with the AQA English Literature Higher Paper in mind but it is in no way endorsed by them. This is not a general guide to the text, it is a step-by-step guide to how to use your knowledge of the text in this examination.
This Checknotes guide includes:

- How does Steinbeck create sympathy for the character of Lennie?
