I hope the exam went well this year! I honestly can't remember what last years was about, I just remember that poetry was tragic. I'm glad I've helped some of you out, but unfortunately I didn't really make any for the other characters, maybe Dr Lanyon? And I kind of want to leave English lit in the past so I probably won't be making any more (it doesn't help that I chucked Jekyll and Hyde on the fire after exams either). Thanks :)
