    Lord of the flies uses AO2 this is basically language form and structure. Comment on all of these, use Goldings name and refer back to the question in every paragraph. If you can try to comment on the last word/sentence of the extract.

    My best tip for unseen is to follow this:
    Read it
    Establish the story (form,narrative,perspective)
    Tone
    Structure
    Analyse
    Message

    Basiacally that spells master backwards and is super helpful when your stuck. I'm doing the same ones as you and also managed to get confused on monday but i hope this helps and it all goes well for you xx
