Not sure but we’re doing Frankenstein. I hope Paris questions doesn’t include the seven ages of Paris or the letter. Quite confident for tomrrw though overall.

Same i don't really know terminology, it's quite hard to revise for English tbh. Paris and poetry are all basically device spotting, and then the prose is just learning context and knowing the right terminology?

No but like the actual question itself, like character or setting? Because we've only been taught character or setting questions, and I think there's other questions that could come up?
