Okay so many people are predicting Lady Macbeth is going to be the focus this year but I would take those predictions with a pinch of salt, anyway heres some practice exam questions: ALSO IF YOU ARE DOING THE AQA EXAM YOU WOULD HAVE TO PROVIDE YOURSELF WITH A FITTING EXTRACT FOR THESE QUESTIONS

- How does Shakespeare present Lady Macbeth as a powerful character?

-How does Shakespeare present Lady Macbeth as ambitious?

-How does Shakespeare Lady Macbeths character and how does it change throughout the play?

-How is lady Macbeth seen as manipulative?

-How is Lady Macbeth seen as controlling?

-'Lady Macbeth is to blame for the stories events and Macbeths downfall' discuss.

-How does Shakesperare use the character of Lady Macbeth to show his concerns in society?

-What is the importance of Macbeth and Lady Macbeths relationship?

-How does Lady Macbeth use Language to manipulate Macbeth?


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------Here are some non LM related questions for Macbeth.

-How is ambition shows in Macbeth

- How effective is Shakespeares use of the supernatural and how do they help convey his purpose?

-Explain the role of the witches in Macbeth

-What is the purpose of Banquo?

-How does Macbeth change during the course of the play?

-How does Shakespeare portray deceitfulness?

-How far does Shakespeare present confussion and difficult decisions?

-How does Shakespeare present the issue of Insanity?

-How does Shakespeare use the beginning of the pay to set out Macbeths downfall?

-'no one but Macbeth is responsible' discuss.

-How does Shakespeare show the theme of guilt in the play Macbeth.

-How does Shakespeare use the witches to create suspense and drama?


Hope this helps!

But wasn't Lady Macbeth in the specimen paper. So my teachers are saying that it's rather unlikely to come up. I was actually thinking maybe Macbeth's and Lady Macbeth's relationship or a theme maybe (not ambition because that was last year's).

Did you qrite about Banquo? I think the hallucinations are a fab idea, personally my main points were Banquos attitude towards the supernatural as skeptical and suspcious yet he trusts them to an extent because he wants to hear his prophecies from tehm, I put Macbeth changes his attitude towards the witches as he goes from being skeptical to almost being reliant on them.

That is good and you can also talk about the witches as they are mainly part of supernatural and the ghost of banquo. When talking about witches you can include context of how witches were portrayed in the Jacobean era.

Supernatural (with focus to Macbeth and Banquo), Macbeth’s ambition and Lady Macbeth were all questions in specimen and actual papers the years before.

But, you never know, they might bring it back.
