Hi, I'm studying Frankenstein and Emily Dickinson, what about you? This is my second attempt at the paper as I need a B, if you have any high level tips to get into the top band that'd be great! So far I'm just trying to do as many essay questions as possible (which is difficult with only 8 past questions available). Does anybody know of anywhere that I could find other essay questions to attempt? Thanks!
I'm also doing those! Any predictions? Really hated the Emily Dickinson question last year, my teachers said that that Gun poem probably wouldn't come up! I would love it to be It was not Death or What mystery pervades a well but I have a feeling it might be Behind me-dips eternity.
No clue for Frankenstein though. Holding out for nature hopefully!
My teachers made up some questions if you want to practice planning etc.
