Ah yeah the examples on the internet are pathetic and long; but we are just going to have to use them.
Try SparkNotes or Schmoop.

Yeah I’ve tried doing essay plans and what I think might come up but Is it possible that a past questions or a question similar could come up??? So e.g in Macbeth something about lady Macbeth and in jekyll and Hyde something about Hyde being dangerous/disturbing what are you predictions of what will come up?

ah well success is subjective.
I just hate the fact that whenever I try to be "perceptive" I always fail. I feel like English literature only rewards those who think in a certain way, but that's me being salty

Have you watched Mr Bruff's exemplar answer videos on Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde so you have an idea of how to structure your answers and what to analyse?

Yeah I actually have! They just make me more insecure as the people who write them are so talented and I could never write as good😂 but I actually have looked at them and done a mindmap of the question and wrote some ideas that the past student has said as well as my own x I REALLY PRAY HYDE COMES UP IN MY EXAM! Do you have any predictions of what it will be? X

You shouldnt be looking at predictions as you should know the novel well enough to be able to explain any character that comes up. I recommend you watch Mr Salles's videos on Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and maybe submit some of your work to see where you can improve.

So do you think what I’m doing is a good idea, basically getting past questions of predicted questions etc a mind map on let’s say “Hyde as disturbing” and I put my points around the page I can literally revise themes and everything but when it comes to essays I have no idea what to write!!!!!

I remember what I did was literally go through each chapter, pull together all my notes we'd done in class and write out all the weird words that I needed definitions of. I then wrote essays using all those notes (this was all like five days before the actual exam), so about 3. But yeah I would select a main theme and write points around them, that's literally what I'm doing for A Level history. I got an A* in English literature somehow haha. Good luck
