I'm doing LoftF and AVFTB, for lord of the flies I think either Jack or Simon will come up and for AVFTB Beatrice, Alfieri or Marco. I did this through process of elimination

Marco came up last year didn't he and alfieri the year before that? Do they still have a chance of coming up?

I think they could come up again although you may be right, I just assumed there may be a long essay question on their importance seeing as previously they were questions on giving advice to the actor playing them, I definitely think Beatrice could come up as there hasn't been an essay question on her yet, but I guess we have to prepare for all eventualities.

I'm doing ACC and AVFTB. I looked at the past papers on WJEC website so because of elimination and looking at main characters and themes:

ACC could be
Characters - Scrooge (obviously), Bob Cratchit, all Ghosts (and Marley) or Tiny Tim (and fezziwig but he is a minor character so very unlikely to come up)
Themes - Isolation, Transformation (easy one so hopefully will come up), choices, time, home, memory/past and guilt/blame

AVFTB could be
Characters - Eddie, Catherine, Beatrice (the rest have all recently been focused on but could still come up as part of a theme)Themes - Justice/Law, abandonment, masculinity, respect/reputation, women/femininity or hopes/dreams.

The ones that have come up in the past are obviously less likely to come up but don't rule them out in case they tie into other characters and themes. Also, main characters such as Scrooge and Eddie have themes within the characters that are not main themes running through the book and could be asked in the exam. Context questions can be asked as well so definitely have a good knowledge of background/context as you should always include it in the long questions no matter what the question. For mice and men last week, I revised a lot on loneliness and friendship came up which tie into each other so I was just lucky. Try to get a brief knowledge of everything but a lot of them link together. I'm going to focus on beatrice and justice/law and women/femininity for AVFTB and Scrooge, Ghosts, transformation and guilt/blame. Learning these should give me a good base for whatever comes up. Hope this helps! Good luck!

My teachers believe that for LOTF Jack or Simon will come up, however its very predictable for Simon due to him not coming up before therefore WJEC may purposely not use him as everyone would have revised him. For BB they believe either Mickey, or maybe a smaller character such as Sammy or the Narrator as they've never come up before.

Overall, I've just tried to revise all themes and characters I could to prepare but I have found it really hard to learn everything.

Do you have any predictions?

Seems like something WJEC would do(by purposefully not including Simon) they're so sneaky!!! The same thing happened in my Welsh literature exam. Is there a possibility of maybe the littluns or sam'neric coming up?

A lot have speculated Jack or Simon, personally I'm hoping for Simon..but he might not come up because of the predictability. They don't think Ralph too. I'm really hoping for the Narrator for BB but they might be awkward by putting Sammy and I hardly have any points to give him :-(
