A level English Literature Edexcel Predictions

I just wanted to discuss some predictions for A Level English as I have yet to see anyone taking my combination (particularly for prose).
Paper 1: Drama (Taming of the shrew and The importance of being earnest)
potential themes?

Paper 2: Prose ('A Thousand Splendid suns’ and ‘Tess of the durbervilles’)
potential themes?

Paper 3: Poetry (Poems of the Decade and T.S Eliot)
I could probably guess the poems that will come up, but I have absolutely no ideas what potential themes could come up. Any ideas?

I do the same combination for prose - was thinking they might throw in a weird one like the presentation of men (despite the unit being 'women in society') because that hasn't really ever come up, but they tend to just reword old themes so I'm not 100% sure.

For poems of the decade someone mentioned 'Journal of a Disappointed Man' which is a good shout because its on the shortlist of poems that haven't been examined yet.

they didn’t end up giving any predictions :frown:
im doing tiobe and i'm hoping for a character question tbh. they haven't done one for a while (i think the only one they've ever done was for Algernon) so one on Jack would be ideal

Hey, does anyone know the 2023 questions for Tess and Suns? (Edexcel English Literature Paper 2 A-Level)
I'm trying to work out predicted questions and would be very helpful.
Also any predictions?
Thanks!
