    It feels good to know that I'm not the only one getting really stressed about this exam.. When it's over I'm going to have to say sorry to my parents because I've been a right grumpy cow with them... But I don't handle exams well so who can blame me?? Right???

    Well, these are the characters that have already gone:
    John Proctor (in the specimen paper only though)
    Giles Corey
    Mary Warren
    Parris
    Hale
    Abigail
    Danforth (but only in foundation)

    So my best guess would be Elizabeth Proctor, since she hasn't come up yet, or Danforth. Otherwise it will probably be someone horribly obscure like the Putnams or the Nurses...

    In terms of themes I thought maybe reputation? But to be honest I'm not sure which themes have gone.
    Sugar!! I'm so not prepared for this!! Do you know anything on the Putnams??

    LOL i have been revising so hard for ages!! I just get really nervous for exams so i tend to panic a lot :P
    anyways.... good luck
    Ah, that is fair enough. Sorry for sounding like a jackass. It just annoys me when you get those who come in asking for help because they've left everything until the last minute and done zero revision. Sorry for jumping to conclusions!

    Good luck guys!

    If you guys need some last minute tips on the Putnams..

    They're only really present in the first act. Only look there.
    They work as a duo against Parris and intimidate him and have control over him.
    Obsessive over land. They turn up in act 1 and add to the hysteria and make the situation worse.
    They're very religious, many examples of this in the text, yet the bible states ''the love of money is the root of evil' - They have an obsession over land, which helps their income.
    They certainly do not ''love thy neighbour'' - They have feuds with Giles Corey and Proctor (Whom both are hung at the end of the play, the Putnams win the feud) - They threaten Corey.
    They also resent the Nurse family. The Putnams children keep dying when they are born.
    They even suggest their own surviving child is displaying witchcraft traits. They're desperate to get revenge and gain land.
    They make Tituba confess by stating she must be hanged. This makes their story about their daughter seem more real and adds to the hysteria.
    Once they rattle Parris and convice Hale, they're not involved from then on, showing their motives and intentions.
