Know themes, characters, quotes and context points. Practice questions and get used to the language used in the play

Practise writing out question plans. Just pick a random extract and analyse it.

Use quotes that overlap in themes. For example:
‘And oftentimes, to win us to our harm,
The instruments of darkness tell us truths,
Win us with honest trifles, to betray's
In deepest consequence.’
Not only can this be linked more obviously to the characters of the witches but many main themes stem from that quote such as fate, superstition, ambition and violence. By choosing only a few quotes from a few characters you can easily write a great literature answer!
Obviously you might want to use more judicious quotes but just an example

Thank you! That was so helpful, if you don't mind could you help me with some sentence starters for the essay because I tend to waffle and completely miss the point I should be making in the exam? Also, how many sentences would i need in one paragraph approximately?
