Macbeth, Blood brothers, Jekyll and Hyde and poems.

Anything would help, I don't know how to structure these types of notes and my teacher is awful so if anyone has some notes from last year or for mocks it would be greatly appreciated!

I just bought the York notes Macbeth study guide which is so so good.
My teacher is also really rubbish so in the same situation as you!
Would reccomend the York Notes book though (quite cheap on amazon)
good luck in the mocks x

I didnt bother mentioning the poems because I do some dodgy exam board (WJEC Eduqas) but depending on your exam board we might have a couple similar pooems like ozymandias etc. Ill take a look at your GYG if i can find it, thanks!

hi,
I did Macbeth but not the other two books.
MR BRUFF on youtube - he is a godsend, helped me get my 7 in literature.
Spark notes too.

Also, MAKE REVISION CARDS! - so like a quote on each card and memorise them. This will defo help you
( don't just do that for Macbeth, do It for your other books too and for poetry)
make theme related revision cards too, so list quotes with specific themes.
So in the exam, if the theme comes up, it will defo help you remeber.
do some practice questions. If you don't have any, ask your teachers? or ask me, I've got loads that my teacher gave me. Ill forward you the questions and you can take them to your teacher to mark. If you want I can give you some of my example answers too ( if I can find them)

Also, make sure you know AT LEAST 3 quotes from each character in the play, this includes King Duncan, LadyMacbeth, The witches, Banquo. Basically all the characters, you don't know which character will come up. You obviously have the option of two questions in the exam but what if they're both ones you didn't revise?
trust me QUOTES! you need them
revise them for poetry too, I did power and conflict and learnt at least 4 quotes per poem. I can still remember some of them. You don't understand how much this will help you!!

If you need any resources feel free to ask me, i can send you some.
Good Luck!

ahaha I’m AQA, with Macbeth use YouTube (mr Bruff etc) and nofearshakespeare will help you actually understand the text! I use a York notes revision guide and a snap revision guide for Macbeth notes
For poetry I (again) watch video analysis on YouTube and take notes, I have a revision guide but I don’t really use it!
I’m in year 11 as well good luck

If you want a point they won't be expecting, compare Macbeth and Lady Macbeth to Gollum and Smeagol. It sounds strange but the similarities are uncanny.

The question for Macbeth last year was 'How is Macbeth presents as violent? ' and they give you the Captain's speech, usually when they have Year 11 mocks, they give people last year's GCSEs so yeah, I'd recommend writing up notes on that
