I'm revising Climate Change for my revision since it hasn't come up yet and there's two of them. I'll go over the texts that come up the most in this pole too though.

Yes. I think taking on the world has come up in a specimen before , but not sure if that counts as actually having 'come up' before
I was given a question of how does the writer make his feelings abut his experiences in Somalia clear for A Passage to Africa- I wasn't really sure abut the wording of the question and how to answer it

If you look at the grade boundaries on the edexcel website they all say marks out of 100. Yet paper 1 was out of 60 and paper 2 was out of 30. So i was wondering where do the extra marks come from ?

The exam mark out of 60 gets converted into a score of 70 , coursework is worth 30% 10 on a poetry/prose comparison, 10 on speaking and listening and ten on persuasive/creative writing
