I am trying to revise Hamlet, but I literally have no idea where to start and what to revise. If anybody else is also doing this Exam in 2017, then please share your ideas with me. x

Hey, I do OCR A Level English Lit (Y13 now) and I'm studying Hamlet.
Firstly, do you know what your assessment objectives are? i.e. what the examiner is looking for? This will really help you focus your revision.
If you don't feel confident at all, I would go over the plot just to re-familiarise yourself with the play. Don't forget about the sub-plot, the revenge tragedy genre & contextual information around the time the play was written.
Then, pick key quotes for each character & maybe practice analysing them - using literary criticism whilst doing this to really up-level your answers.
Look at a few exemplars to see how the top students have written their essays.
Practice writing your own responses - you can find loads of questions on Hamlet (for OCR) on this dropbox link: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/xs0g475lg...A%20Level?dl=0

This is just general revision advice for A Level Lit - if you'd like any specific help with anything let me know

Hi, I was just wondering if you wouldn't mind sharing any other resources that you may have from english lit like good quotes or context etc, because I'm also doing Hamlet, Rossetti, and dystopia, and your resources were really helpful. Thank you x
