for Romeo and Juliet?

hmm yeah, last year was male aggression, potentially this year will be on a character? if it was I think it would be on someone like the Friar or Nurse
BUT if its a theme yeah I think you might be right, fate/destiny is a decent theme and they'd probably give the prologue for the extract

if you're doing power/conflict poetry cluster I reckon it'll be on remains or poppies about the importance of memory

but as you know, no one knows what the questions will be, stupid GCSEs :/

i always thought it would be a character like the nurse/friar cause it would be hard but you noe its gcse's. but if u were doing the love and relationships cluster i really think that Loves philosophy would come up

Our school teachers believe it might be something to do with women society views or mercutio and comedic characters.

macbeth: maybe something to do with or kingship/Duncan/loyalty

jekyll and hyde: Utterson or reputation

inspector calls : Mr Birling as cruel?

power and conflict: London because it is short and simple(they will need us to read the other 3 questions on the paper), last year it was war/conflict and specimen was nature so it leaves power over humans.
