    Yeah remember things like key quotes from characters, know the fundamentals of the book so it's dramatic irony. Use embedded quotes while using them. Watch the movie it will help you understand it

    Hi! what really helps me with Inspector Calls is to watch the movie. BBC has actually made a movie of 'Inspector Calls', and I really recommend watching it. Also I recommend to buy the Inspector Calls revison guide as it contains a lot of good info on all the characters, themes etc.

    I analysed my key quotes so I would already have the quote analysis ready in my essays. Practice as many essay questions as possible since there can only be questions on themes or characters if you are doing AQA. I would also recommend linking to other points in the text and to context. Hope this helps and you do well!

    I have a mindmap for each character that has 10+ poignant quotes for each person. Then I have linked the quote to a theory e.g. Marxism or a social construct e.g. socialism. Or maybe you could colour code that. Whatever seems more effective for you I suppose. This helps me to learn quotes much easier - I also have them [the mindmap/poster] next to my bed on the wall, so that I can read them more often. Do flash cards and guess which character says them.
    Use higher level vocab such as;
    steeped, superficiality, hypocrisy, incriminate, facade, callous, omniscient, just to name a few. Make sure you know what these mean though!
    Start with a thesis statement; this is something that kinda reflects what the question is asking but in a statement that leads your paragraphs through.
    Write about contrast eg. old vs. young, rich vs. poor, selfish vs. helpful. The play is all about contrast. I hope I helped! Good luck!
