    mind maps are always a good idea imo - you can do ones for characters and themes. you can also plan answers to essay questions using mindmaps: ask your teachers for a list of example questions and brainstrom possible points via mindmap!

    otherwise you can do quote charts, I'd just make sure you know some key points and quotes for each character and theme so you're set for anything that comes up!

    I think another good way is to make sure you fully understand what happens in all the texts - I used to make scene-by-scene/chapter by chapter bullet point lists or summaries of what happened in the novels and plays I studied, so i definitely knew what events happened when

    I'm sure you'll do fab - I did AIC at GCSE so if you wanted any notes for that feel free to PM me
