My method planned for today and tommorrow is this,

Get a list of themes for each book/play
For each theme, find a hypothesis which you can use in your exam relating to the writers intended message
Then find how this appears in the book/play
Include language, structure and form if possible

Repeat for characters but just find key scenes for each and themes related to the character

I do not have time to write practice essays.

Tell me your thoughts on this approach and if i should do something else

I've got all my resources in front of me, make your lists those will help but don't forget the context links because that's your AO3. I'm doing Jekyll and Hyde and Romeo and Juliet on Tuesday but i'm not that confident. I'm just trying to find quotes that match several different themes.

Aren't you leaving it a bit too late, why not start revising now? The themes are essential to whatever text or novel you are studying, the characters are a way of the writer representing their theme hence why a question is being asked on them.

I'm revising an inspector calls today - I'm dedicating one flashcard per character, and summarising them, including key quotes, their significance to the plot, what the authour intends for them to do, what themes they apply to and what they represent - as well as colour coding each point. This gives me a set of flashcards which I know that if I learn everything off of - I'll be ok. I might make theme mindmaps tomorrow and before my exam but summarising information and condensing it down helps me stay motivated and not feel too intimidated by the content of the book!
Good luck!!
