    What board are you on? (just checking cos im AQA-A and my othello papers not until next week)

    For Othello , i would try and write down a brief synopsis of what happens in each act.
    Re-read each big event in the play.
    Consider and perhaps expand on critical approaches.
    Make character studys (i like to draw a picture of the character in teh middle of a page and then write around (like mind mapping) all there major bits to talk about.

    Goood luck matey.

    If your doing AQA spec A there is no way you are doing Othello this week. Perhaps your doing spec B? but you couldn't do Othello before us , you could tell us the answers... Hmm. i think you need to ring your college and check your exam statements of entry,

    Rather than trying to learn extra facts at this late stage, why don't you try thinking interesting things about what you do know?

    Count yourself lucky you have any extracts, unlike us 'A' people!

    have you read it? recently?

    maybe just re-reading it could get the ball rolling. if anything.

    I was crap at Othello too. But I aced the Language In Context exam (the last one) and got 109/120

    So don't worry about it. Literature wasn't my thing at all lol Beloved was a nightmare. But there was a site...www.sparknotes.com that was decent back in the day.
