hiya, i have my first a level exam 24 of May this Wednesday Coming...Was wondering if anyone had any advice for "The lovely bones" Alice Sebold , "Robert Browning" Poetry and Paris Anthology!
I'm looking for the types of themes and question types they might ask! I'm afraid they'll ask something I've missed out on!

hiya! the questions themselves will always be the same, itll just be the content that acc changes.

The Remembered Places question will be "Compare and contrast how the producer of Text A and the producer of Text B present
[a theme, aspect, experience, etc]."

For Imagined Worlds you have a choice of 2 questions - typically, for Lovely Bones, there will be one question on a theme and one question on a character. So these will be along the lines of "Explore the significance of [theme] in the novel" and "Explore the significance of the character of [character] in the novel".

And for Poetic Voices, you'll have a choice of question again, but these are far more similar. So you'll be asked to compare one set poem and another of your choice, such as "Examine how Browning presents [attitudes/views/themes] in [Poem] and one other poem of your choice."
