Since the exam(s) don't allow us to use a blank copy of the text in the exam, we would need to memorise quotes. How is everybody learning these quotes? I was thinking of learning quotes for each character and the main themes. Or do you think it would be best to choose only quotes that have a lot of technique/subject terminology you can comment on, regardless of theme/character?

What I would recommend is to find one or two quotes for each character and theme which have the most things you could comment on. It'll make your life a lot easier if you can find quotes that link to a character and a theme at the same time. The most important thing though is to make sure that you don't bog yourself down trying to remember a ton of quotes. I went a bit overboard last year and tried to remember 30 and only ended up using 5 or 6

Good luck with your exams!

Thankyou, I'm gonna try being selective when picking quotes for each character and possible themes. There are quite a lot of quotes that have a lot to comment on in Animal Farm (one of the texts I am currently studying)

Sounds like a good idea. If you find ones that have a lot to comment on and you find easy to write about then you're sorted
