Unseen Paper

Taking a look at many IGCSE Unseen Papers, we can come to the conclusion that they usually deal with 5 Universal Themes:

  • Coming of Age (maturing, growing up, passing from childhood to adulthood)
  • Post-colonialism (colonizer-colonized, slavery)
  • Power Relations (mother-child or son, daughter, father-child or son, daughter, husband-wife, etc)
  • Displacement, alianation (moving away)
  • Inner self vs outer self 

Have a look at the Unseen papers in your booklet and match them with these themes!!
