    If you just plainly know what happens throughout the play, you should be fine right????? Or do you literally have the read the entire play and get as much quotes as you can. Can someone offer some revision techniques on how to predict the exam question in a way.

    I don't know much about Romeo and Juliet but I do know that learning how questions phrasing can mean you need to give a certain answer can really help to look at past papers for your exam board.
    Also there's a website calls sparknotes which will almost definitely have Romeo and Juliet summarised chapter by chapter at least if not page by page!

    Not gunna lie, I never read Macbeth properly and in chronological order, just scenes here and there to get the idea, and got a 9. As long as you know what happens in each scene with key quotes, you’ll be fine.

    (I don’t recommend this way however, reading the play or watching it at least makes things much clearer)

    It helps to read the whole book as you understand the language amd writting style more. Also it helps when interperating things in a scene or chapter

    I would say yes, but there are going to be vital areas in the plot you'll need to know compared to others. Have a chat with your teacher and see what they say. They will have a general idea what the questions will be able. Saying that in my RE exam, the teacher taught one curriculum and the exam was about something completely different, but I passed anyway as I revised that area when others hadn't.

    Don't do that. If a scene comes up in the exam that you haven't covered properly, then you're in trouble...

    Hey,
    I did Romeo and Juliet and didn't read the whole play fully and still got a 9. Honestly if you're good at analysing a text on the spot then you'll be fine. On the exam, a scene came up which I hadn't read before and I didn't find it a big issue. You should, however, know the plot pretty well and have memorised quotes have for all the main characters and especially the themes or memorise a few quotes per character and make sure that you cover a range of themes with each quote. However, you have plenty of time between now and the exams so you really should at the very least try to read it once.
