    I'm really scared that I'm gonna fail English, I really want to try and get an A but I feel that in the exam, because we don't know what the question will be/what character it will be on, I'm just gonna forget everything and not know what to put.

    For AIC, the predicted person to come up is Sheila, could someone help and like state a rough outline of what I would need to do for each paragraph, like introduction and points???

    An introduction is not essential for the essay.

    Use the PEE structure for each paragraph - make your point, pick your evidence, choose a little bit to explain, then explain the next bit, and keep doing that until you've said everything you can about the quote, remembering to use alternative interpretations when possible.

    It's quite hard to come up with any points about Sheila when we don't know the topic of the question, so I would revise the main characters and think of quotes that show their development throughout the novel - this should help prepare you.
