It's really hard to call, but the theme and role of women has never come up and that seems quite prominent in both Hamlet and RT? What do you think?

I completely agree, women came up in about 2010 and once since but that seems to be a very prominent theme! I'm more confident on themes like corruption, justice, revenge though x

I'm looking at my poetry flashcards which have got an analytical breakdown of the poems i've learnt, going over the quotes i've learnt for the drama section and then planning main themes. Also I had a read of some critical essays earlier which can be quite useful. You?

I don't really learn quotes for Faustus. I know a few but A03 is split into two parts: A03i and A03ii.
One part is critical opinion and the other is link to Faustus, so 5/40 marks are for Faustus
Long story short I don't think you need the quotes for Faustus. I just always link the question to the flaws of human nature which is what fundamentally both The Tempest and Faustus are about, so I just talk refer to different parts of Faustus but won't necessarily do that many quotes.

I'm doing Blake, The Tempest and Faustus. I've realised I am very good at the drama section as I've been revising it since January, however the poetry I am a bit awful at so am spending all of today learning poems. Does anyone think 10 is enough? I already know 5 so am planning on learning another 5, but need to spend tomorrow going over everything so don't think I'll have time to learn anymore :-(

Faustus represents 12.5% of your essay so yeah, because almost all your language analysis should be coming from Tempest anyway, Faustus just serves to illuminate it.
To be fair A03 is split into A03i and A03ii, one is critics and one is Faustus relation and I've never got 5/5 on relating to Faustus, but I consistently get 4/5 and teachers say the way I do it is fine. Why have you learnt latin quotes...?
