    So we study two novels which we have to compare in a one hour essay, compare two poems from a number we have studied and write a single essay on a piece of drama. I understand you revise the poems one at a time, then look at comparatives afterwards. My question is how do you break the novels and drama into sections in order to revise? Would you look at different characters, different themes etc. or would you break the piece of writing into chapters? Where do you start?

    Once you've read everything, I usually go for themes and then characters.

    Depending on what your exam is on, just revise half so like 4 themes, 4 characters, and etc.

    But I'm not going to look up your specification. If you want a more detailed answer, give a detailed question!
