    I'm studying the exact same literature texts and my teacher usually predicts correctly the themes and characters which might come up.
    For omom, we are predicting a George and Lennie (friendship) essay or possibly a slim essay (possibly linked to the theme of justice or violence).
    For a Christmas Carol, we have predicted something along the lines of christmas and religion .
    For blood brothers, we have a feelings that there might be a possible question on the narrator or sammy or the theme of Marilyn Monroe.

    For your writing exam, I think there might be formal letter and an informal letter. There hasn't be an informal letter for a few years, I think. There is always a formal writing task in this exam, so a report could also be a possibility.

    Hope this can be of some help.
    This teacher is very good. Wish i hadnt read this last minute. The prediction was close enough to 100%. I recommend y'all to this. Saved me! ✌

    My English teacher tried to find it online because we were all complaining about it and arguing about whether it implied Auntie Jane Fish was a prostitute, but he couldn't find it. It seems they found the most obscure and ambiguous poem on the planet!

    I hated that ugh, how did everyone else find it?
    That poetry was horrible especially the fish one, that was a nasty poem.
    I AM SO UNHAPPY ABOUT THE CHOICE OF THE POEMS ESPECIALLY THE CAR SHOWROOM. IT WAS NASTY.

    How were we meant to infer that the In Cardigan Market poem was about a prostitute?????????? Without context that is extremely difficult especially as it's talking about how much she stinks of fish!! I thought she was just very dedicated to being a fish monger
