Help! I’m a bit unsure

Hiya, so can schools choose to only pick one novel for gcse English literature paper 1 or is it mandatory for them to do two books? For example, can a school only pick Macbeth(for paper 1), An inspector Calls (+ poetry and conflict with unseen poetry for paper 2)? Or will they have to also e.g do a Christmas Carol for paper 1?

Sorry if this doesn’t make sense and thank you in advance!

I’m pretty sure they have to do 2 at least (mine did 3- Macbeth, a Christmas Carol and blood brothers) as there are sections A and B for each paper (I think there is C as well for unseen poetry) which are mandatory.
