varying opinions, Anglicanism does incorporate a lot of things from Catholicism despite branching from the Reformation so sometimes classes as both, a lot of reading available on google/Wikipedia too

The CofE is one protestant sect, also known as Anglicanism.
There are many other protestant sects including: Adventism, Anabaptistism, Lutheranism, Methodism and Pentecostalism.
Different sects have different traditions and ideological focuses.

So ive got this revision sheet which another teacher made it has Anglican beliefs on it but in my class our teacher always taught us about Protestant, so are their views the same so then could just revise from the Sheet instead of always having to check their views don't collide ?

Anglican beliefs do have some beliefs in common with other protestant sects but there are also many differences.
Check all the different protestant beliefs, then make your own revision notes about shared beliefs and the differences between protestant sects.

Protestant is an umbrella term for different denominations with pretty similar views.

It's not as simple as saying that they're "the same".

For example, Methodists and Anglicans are both Protestants, but have different views over e.g. alcohol.

There's no such thing as a 'protestant chuch'. A sect is protestant if it doesn't acknowledge the pope/goes against the pope. At the time it was conceived, the Anglican Church didn't recognise the pope as the leader and incorporated some protestant reformations but still held some Catholic traditions to keep both parties happy. If you're being asked about the differences then it will be in the context of 'what parts of the CoE did protestants agree and disagree with'. If your teacher is saying the CoE isn't protestant then they are wrong.

Depends. There are Anglo-Catholics (also known as high church) who have similar views to Roman Catholics and don't view themselves as protestant. There are also low churches who have more similar views to Methodists. The church of England is very broad, there are lots of churches who believe different things. It's wrong to classify them as simply protestant.

Protestants likewise believe lots of different things and have different ways of worshipping. Quakers worship by sitting in silence for an hour. Baptist churches most definitely do not worship in silence.

There are lots of similarities in all churches. All believe in the Bible, but have varying interpretations and ways of worship. It's complicated.

Not really. The only unifying belief amongst protestants is the rejection of the authority of the Pope. There are some differences between the approach to the Eucharist and whether Christ is actually present in the bread and wine or it's merely symbolic.

Generalisation quickly becomes offensive and is often inaccurate and flat out wrong. Christianity is a complicated faith. The differences between different churches and forms of worship are very complicated, and there's no way to generalise without being wrong.

If you are going to revise with a table divided into half for catholic and protestant beliefs, focus on the points where all protestant groups agree and catholicism teaches different beliefs.
You don't want to be taking shortcuts that rely on very short summaries that are not accurate, when it comes to exam revision.

Not sure there are any points where all Protestants agree beyond the authority of the Pope.

There are a few, mainly based upon the three solas.
Also the rejection of vatican claims of exclusive monopoly upon the christian faith and reformation era repudiation of papal authority to claim title of God's representative on earth.
