Unseen Prose Practise Question: The Yellow Wallpaper
This resource takes you through the process of an unseen prose practice exam - where you’re given an extract from a longer story or novel to analyse in detail. As there is no context, you would be expected to treat this exam as a close reading task - the purpose is to identify a lot of form, structure and language features, and use those to analyse the piece deeply, whilst focusing on the question.
