    I am doing AQA grade 9-1 and we are doing the books An Inspector Calls, Romeo & Juliet and the Sign Of Four.
    I have no idea how to revise for these exams.
    I know about learning quotes, structure, techniques etc.
    But I would like to know what methods e.g. mindmaps worked well for students last year.
    I am aiming for a grade 8/9 and it is really stressing me out because it seems like for the Paper 1 texts ( R& J and the SOF) you have to learn the entire play/ book!
    I think I will revise Characters & Themes for AIC but the others I have no idea.

    Any help would be much appreciated

    Read the books multiple times, and I would highly recommend watching movie versions too. What I've done for my revision, is make character profiles comprising quotes and character development, and used these to answer past paper questions. The more you do this, the better you'll get.

    idk if this is relevant as i did macbeth, but we studied all of the monologues in detail as they were the most common ones to be as the extract in the paper. if there are monologues in R&J, that’s probably the case for yours too
