Learn a summary of each book
Go through the spec http://pdf.ocr.org.uk/download/kd/oc..._gce_spec.pdf? and make notes on each point
Do some practise essay questions (the more you do, the more points you will have stored away for the real thing)

I did exactly what you did; Greek tragedy and the Odyssey.
What I'd recommend is to actually know the plays inside out (you don't have to know all four, three will be enough! I only knew Ajax, Agamemnon and Medea and still got 91/100) and to make small summaries of them on your phone- when you're on the bus etc. you can always read through it and remember the key points of the play.
Btw. Last year Ajax was an essay question so I'm guessing this year it will be very likely to be a context question.

Fell free to pm me if you have any more questions!

Hey, sorry this is late!

Ideas for Odyssey: Heroism/xenia, nostos, character profiles and how they contribute to the story, a lot of detail on Homeric society!

Ideas for Medea: Is she a traditional tragic hero? Sympathy, justice and revenge, and character profiles again!

Make timelines of the Odyssey and the plays so you know the plot really well
