In case you didn't know, the question is going to be 'Analyse aspects of tragedy in the following extract.' The extract is what you have to speculate on. I suspect it will be the beginning interaction between Iago & Roderigo, Iago goading Othello about Desdemona & Cassio, or one of Othello's monologues.

yeah I know about the extract thing, but isn't the Roderigo and Iago thing on the specimen paper

Could be anything, hence why my class has done questions on all characters such as Emilia's feminism speech and women in society, Iago's self-love and egotism and Othello's jealousy.

However, we do know for certain that one part of the Othello question will ask; "How does Shakespeare present aspects of love in the following extraxt", as mentioned already.

How do you know that for certain? About aspects of love?

In every single exam specimen they've had two parts to the Othello question; "How does Shakespeare present aspects of love" followed by the actual question. Obviously, it doesn't specify that it will be asked but I think we can all gather it's going to be a recurring theme as it is LTA we are studying.

I revise character relationships and analyse different themes of love within.

Oh yeah. In that case I think it might be Othello's speech to Brabantio.
