Hi,
I am unsure how to prepare for my english literature exam. For the 'An Inspector Calls' AQA GCSE exam there are two questions. Is one of these questions ALWAYS a character? (and so is it safe only preparing for characters and not themes etc.)
Thanks

Maybe sometimes but it could easily be two themes as well. So you will need to prepare for both characters and themes (50:50). I did mine last year and I think Mr Birling came up and Social class inequality. So themes are as important as characters. To prepare for it practice making plans for the 30m essays (do at least 8/9 to be on the safe side) and if you want to push your grade higher try to memorise 2 or 3 key quotes for each character e.g. For the inspector in the last scene,'It will all end in fire, blood and anguish'.

Hope this helps.

I'm doing AIC atm for my GCSE and I find that making mindmaps/posters about the plot, context, each of the characters is so helpful. For the characters, I made mindmaps where I brainstormed individual traits, quotes etc, BBC Bitesize is so useful. I would prepare for as much of the play as you can because you don't know what will come up, there is usually a theme embedded and attached to each character. So just remember as many links and quotes as you can tbh.
