Tell us more. Make some brief summary notes. Pay close and careful attention to the type of questions as well. Note the total number of marks that are given out for the exam question as well.

The main event of secrecy is how Dr Jekyll hides Mr Hyde. Victorian gentlemen had to live alongside the "Victorian compromise" where any vulgar acts such as getting drunk, alcohol, visitng prostitutes voilently depleted your reputation - Mr Hyde is a way Dr Jekyll can enjoy these things while continuously living a life of luxury. A good subject to discuss relating to this point is nomenclature (Hyde = hide, Jekyll = I kill)

Second point is the door that Utterson stalks in chapter 2. Doors can represent secrecy because you do not know what is going on behind them, such as how the outside of Mr Hyde's house looks awful but the inside is luxurious. A quote relating to this point would be “If he be Mr. Hyde" he had thought, "I shall be Mr. Seek.”
