Predictions for June 2023 Edexcel IGCSE English Language paper

Does anyone have any predictions for the Edexcel IGCSE English Language paper in June? I know it's early but I want to know which texts are more likely to come up. I'll be sitting the regional paper by the way. Also, do you know what texts came up in the June 2022 and January 2023 R papers?

I took the exam last year and I feel like paper 1 is more predictable and paper 2 is entirely luck
last year we got between a rock and a hard place for paper 1, and night for paper 2
the only thing is night appeared in 2021 already so most of us didn't revise for it
I would recommend you listing out all texts that appeared in exams starting from 2018 and use elimination.
Group the texts into low, medium and high risk so you know what to prioritise.

2023 Jan was A Game of Polo with a Headless Goat and Whistle and I’ll Come to You (from The Woman in Black)

Danger of single story (Nov 2020)
H is for Hawk (2020 R)
Between rock and hard place (Jan 2020)
Explorers or boys (2021)

Does it mean the lower it is in the list, the lower the chance it will come out?
