    Hi all,
    anyone else surprised by the OM&M question b) "Explore how the language in the extract influences your view of what takes place after the death of Curley's wife" ?
    As far as I can see - every other question refers directly to the extract - which is what we trained our students to do. None of the previous papers or SAMs have this structure of questions. Someone commented on the WJEC 'surprise question' thread about a recalibration question for the grade boundaries. Could it be the same?
    What do you think?

    We were disappointed with the ambiguity of the question - as our students have made much the same mistake in reading as you. The question was VERY ambiguous and on reading it a second time, we realised that it meant after the death of Curley's Wife IN THE EXTRACT! We are looking at contactiong Edexcel to express our disappointment.
    It will be interesting to hear what others have to say...
