English Literature Papers

Can someone please explain how the two english literature papers are structured? How many questions and what theyre about? Then tips for them. Thank you. Much appreciated :smile:
If it's AQA then:

Paper 1 consists of 2 questions, one about a Shakespeare text you're studying, and the second is about a 19th-century novel you're also studying.

Paper 2 has 3 questions, the first question is related to the poetry anthology that you study, and the next two are about unseen poetry, where you first have to write about a theme in one unseen poem, then compare the first unseen poem to a second unseen poem in the last question


This is from what i roughly remember, do correct me if I'm wrong

Oh, I totally forgot there is also modern drama in Paper 2, which makes it a total of 4 questions in Paper 2. I just suddenly remembered doing AIC in Paper 2 lol
