    So I'm in Year 12, I am repeating my English Lit. exam Unit 1 from last summer this May and I'm also doing the Unit 2, for these exams I will be studying for Of Mice and Men and also Blood Brothers. I have already decided that I am going to answer the character question, but can anyone who has done both exams tell me if it is enough to only revise the characters in depth or would I still need to cover everything?

    Make a character profile for each character and that should cover you for the exams, especially if you include info about what each character does in the chapters - if you need help let me know

    break it down into these because character analysis isnt sufficient.

    theme, character, context

    these are enough for the essay questions. for the extract (atleast for wjec) you need to know how the author create mood, atmosphere, character and study the language a bit.
