I don't do Romeo and Juliet but I would read over the books and look at key themes, context and the characters. For example in of mice and men the main themes are loneliness, the hopelessness of the American Dream, the weak being cruel to the weak and fraternity. Social context includes the Great Depression , life on American ranches and the sexist, racist society that was 1930s America. Try to include these in your essay, as well as single word analysis and you're set!

Look at plot summaries, and key themes!

Have a look at important quotes and past papers and mark schemes.

For OMAM make sure you know about America in the 1930's. You need to mention it atleast once in your essay, whether the question is about Curley's wife, Crooks, Candy etc..

I don't do romeo and juliet however, I found this site really helpful for omam

well i got two A*s in English (language and literature) but its always been a subject i excel in, but they always look for the 'right' style of writing! just talk to a teacher or look online for the mark scheme just to make sure you nail all the points they look for!
Good luck!

By the way, how do you separate the context from the character if you're asked a question about Crooks and then asked about attitudes to black people in 1930s America?

'America was a very racist country in the 1930s'
'This demonstrates the inequality in America during the 1930s'
etc..

If that answers your question
