    Yeah, but our drama is The crucible by arthur miller. I'm okay for the unseen and I done a mock a fortnight ago.

    How have you been prepearing for the drama question?

    Ah okay cool. Done like 2 mocks a while ago but haven't really done any revision on that side, just the unseen. Do you know any good ways to revise the drama?

    Sort of...because in my exam I'm gonna get given an extract and all I need to do is apply my knowledge of the text, analysis of spoken language and the extract. I think that's the most preparation I'm gonna get aha but I have used my notes so far. As I learn the context etc better, I shan't need them. I don't have many notes anyway

    My lessons never feel very productive, we just read and analyse extracts. Seems more like a monotonous drama lesson:confused:
