For notes, I'm just trying to go through one of the play adaptations on youtube and annotating my book as I go along to try and get a better understanding of the play. this is in addition to going back over my class notes and a text guide I bought (York Notes)

True, I think Beatrice is a possibility or a theme related question on the american dream or 'Paper Doll' maybe?

Yeah I'm doing a view from the bridge too, I took a look at the past questions they've asked:

January 2013: "How does miller present ideas about 'settling for half' in the play (THEME) / Alfieri (CHARACTER)
June 2013: Law and Justice (THEME) / Marco (CHARACTER)
June 2014: Reputation (THEME) / Catherine (CHARACTER)
June 2015: "Significance of settings" (THEME) / Rodolpho (CHARACTER)

So based on those, the themes and characters that have yet to come up are: Woman's Roles, Masculinity, Hopes and Ambitions, Beatrice or Eddie (unlikely).

So my predictions would probably be Beatrice or Alfieri for this year, with the theme possibly being to do with woman's roles or hopes and ambitions. Don't expect those though, they're just my guesses! Anyone else have any ideas?
