Hello everybody, I want to know your predictions about Eng Lit 2018.

I personally believe for Jekyll and Hyde the question will be either about Utterson, repression or duality (Lanyon can also be a possibility).

For Romeo and Juliet, I believe fate or Friar Lawrence.

No idea about An Inspector Calls or the Power and Conflict.

What are your opinions?

My teacher said to use an elimination method like she said that the theme for Romeo & Juliet was love (as I remember but I've got crap memory), therefore it might be a theme of violence or other.

Ye I think so too, it applies to the poems as well right?

I believe it does. She even said that questions, theme and characters don't repeat or something like that. Since last year it was the theme of love, it couldn't be this theme this year but another one.

I am quite confident the question of Romeo and Juliet is either going to be on fate, Lawrence or some random geezer

Stop ****ing about trying to predict. Spend the time you would be spending replying to people on this forum revising everything because nobody knows what is going to come up.

- An examiner.

Are you a professional examiner, because I don't see many examiners swearing on public threads.
For your information, I am quite confident with my Eng Lit so please....

Well it's bleeped out so not really swearing. I did examine for about a year but it wasn't worth the pay for me. It wasn't in English it was Maths and Further Maths, but it doesn't matter. Whether you're confident or not, you will benefit more from sitting down, putting your phone away and doing some hardcore revision. Past papers, questions, workbooks, anything is better than trying to 'predict'. Don't be cocky; saying you're confident is at this stage is a bad thing. Keep practising until the exam.

Wow, you don't have to be so harsh towards him. He only asked a simple question.

You realise everyone can see you post history right, it's clear you're not an examiner as you are apparently "aiming for a grade 5/6 in English Literature." and I quote you on that. Also you are "on grade 9 boiiiii" in maths. Unless you are a very young examiner, or a 35 year old guy retaking his GSCE's I don't see this being possible mate
