    I've got my English Lit. exam on tuesday(AQA unit 1)

    For the second part of the exam I'm doing OMAM but I was wondering if I there's any point of revising for it seen as in part a we're mainly talking about the passage in front of us.
    Needless to say, I'm going to revise historical context etc. for part b, but is there any point in revising for part a?

    You could maybe go over character profiles or key events?

    For this specific exam do you mean?
    I don't mean generally, I mean for this exam

    I think that by revising for the context - you could also be revising what the characters represent - kill 2 birds with 1 stone (that's what im going to do anyway! )

    Oh you only wanted advice for this section? I say revise the context and the characters and themes and see which themes link best to which characters so you can be prepared on all fronts no matter what the question is
