    Hey, I’m thinking about doing Frankenstein and The strange case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde for my English literature coursework, since we have to do a comparative essay for it. And I’m getting worried that I might not be allowed to do the strange case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde because it a GCSE book. Can anyone give me any advice?

    You'll need to check your exam board.

    If it is on as a GCSE text for your exam board, then you can't do it. If it isn't on the GCSE syllabus, then you're free to do it.

    However, you could get marked down for choosing an 'unchallenging' text as it's known as GCSE. If your analysis is perceptive and spot-on then you should be fine, but I wouldn't risk it.
