No but i will say this:
Revise prejudice theme because you can answer questions on…

The creature (being inherently good and only evil due to humanity’s prejudice and rejection of him)

Isolation (how it is fuelled by victor’s prejudice initially rejecting him as a ‘baby’… then how all of humanity - the idealised DeLaceys and even a small boy- express prejudice… context on how Rousseau said that all children are born good and corrupted by their experiences and therefore Shelley makes it clear that the Creature is a victim of prejudice/isolation)

Women (how the monster is paralleled with almost all female characters - Safie, Eliz and Justine are all outcasts accepted for their beauty, meanwhile, the prejudice exertted on the Creature makes him unable to find the “sympathies necessary for his being”)


Then revise ambition because it closely ties in with revenge and knowledge and how Victor’s perverse religious devotion to ambition/revenge causes his destruction and the Creature is a doppelganger with victor in terms of his ambition, so it fuels both of their descent into monstrosity

And ngl those themes are the core of Frankenstein… you can manipulate any qs to suit these if the exam qs is super evil! Good luck!
