    Yup, those would be my predictions too. The Ruined Maid & Give haven't come up, and Medusa hasn't been up for a few years.

    These are predictions of themes/characters that the majority believe may be tested this year - take them seriously but revise other areas of your play/novel

    I would do language analysis anywhere you can. Anywhere there's a point to be made... make it. Also, try your best to add in alternatives interpretations. This really strengthens your point.

    One of the questions could be about the abyss being mentioned throughout the play and another suggestion could be about who is a villain in the play e.g ratcatcher

    do you have any ideas about what possible questions could come up for touching the void this year and what do you think are the main quotes to keep in mind for it
    I generally don't like predicting, but revise the key scenes, for example:
    - first seeing the mountain
    - cutting the rope
    - the summit
    - when everyone is back at base camp

    Go through and find key quotes for each theme
