Hello!

I've spent hours making a mind map of all the key quotes for each theme, but it really just isn't working for me
I'm really worried about lit, because I just really don't know how to revise for it, characters or themes!

Does anyone have some really good ways of learning quotes for key themes and characters and things like that?

I'm doing To Kill a Mockingbird and The Crucible

Thank you so much!

I think you're doing a good thing - key quotes for themes is a good idea. Perhaps it's the mind-map format that isn't working for you, so try writing a theme on one side of a cue card and a related quote on the other side, so you can remember them quickly in the exam.

The best way to revise truly is by looking at past papers, though. So try leafing through a few questions and planning what you'd write. For example, if it was on the theme of religion (I have no idea what it might be, this is just random) - you could make a page of bullet-points of what quotes you'd use, the key ideas about this theme in the texts, how they compare, and any contextual knowledge you need.
