My English mock exam is this week, they might pick out a question from Romeo and Juliet. Does anyone know or have any ideas what kind of questions i should be looking at in romeo and juliet? And how can they be answered?
Many thanks.

Well I haven't studied Romeo and Juliet, but I would suggest they'd probably ask a question about a key theme in the play, or at least one in which you could write about key themes of the play. I guess love would be a key theme, obviously, also maybe something like rivalry, violence, death, etc. There's probably a lot to say about individual passions versus the expectations of society, no matter what the question is I bet you could get that in and still answer the question. You might want to revise stuff about Mercutio as well, as he has a very interesting and unique point of view throughout the play, he's very critical.
I would say it's probably very important to revise characters other than Romeo and Juliet themselves, as they all work as dramatic devices, which you could probably talk about regardless of the question. Even if you get a question explicitly about, for example, Romeo and Juliet's feelings, you could also talk about how other characters react to or view their feelings without straying from the question.
You could talk about destiny and inevitability as well, if the question allows.
I'm sorry I can't help you too much about the question that could come up as I haven't studied the play, but I think some of the points I've raised could be applied to a variety of questions, and I am quite familiar with the play so I hope something I said will help you

Thanks ,this was really helpful, and the question for my controlled assessment was based on Mercutio's character so you was right!
