My English teacher said that AQA can repeat characters and themes again but with just another extract.Having said that, there are some obvious themes that haven't come up such as Guilt, Kingship and Fate vs Free Will. So it's really hard to make an accurate prediction.I bet no one could have seen 2018's question coming, it seemed like a curveball in my opinion.

Maybe the guilt question paired with the 'tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow...' soliloquy?

this year the lit exam is in the afternoon for 9 years it has never been like this my teacher also said that the first and second year get a decent question but because we are the third year we are going to get a curveball so expect the unexpected basically revise your asses of children the aqa biology exam was **** today the grade boundaries for next year is going to be so low watch.
