Section A: imagined worlds
Frankenstein -
Dracula -
The handmaid's tale - How is Gilead presented in an extract (description of a wall).
The lovely bones - How is Susie's thoughts presented

Section B: Poetic voices
Donne -
Browning -
Duffy - How is speaker's attitudes to time presented in Never Go Back and Mean Time.

I do A2 English language and lit(much more easier than the disgusting AS version), and it seems that the AS class got really lucky with Gilead's question and Duffy(last year was Valentine randomly being compared with Small Female Skull of everything LOOL). They had it easier.

Do you do A2?

ah right I don't know what was on the AS paper this year but do you think that could effect what comes up on the A2 paper?

Potentially, but there's no guarantee. I personally think they can't have 2 of the same text with the same theme; as this would mean they would have similar mark schemes. But they could have 2 of the same text with a different theme. The chances of a question being repeated from AS to A-level are very slim but don't take my word for it.

Also, the AS vs A-level structures the question a bit differently from the AS so there may be leeway/exceptions in that department.
