Past paper practise is literally the most important thing you need for revision.
Rereading your texts and your notes and building quotation banks is all really useful for familiarity, but doing paper practise and looking through examiner reports is the most effective way for you to revise

I sort of ya a mixture of methods. In class I’ll just have stuff written on my texts, and then some quotes in my book with deeper analysis.

if you’re revising I think the best thing to do is write out all of the quotes you can remmeber, and then go through your notes and add to this by finding the important ones you missed. you can do this in a number of ways eg some people just like lists, some people benefit more from mindmaps or flowcharts. I think a mix of them all will help.

overall, watching revision videos and rereading parts of the texts or watching your texts in performance on YouTube, tv etc will help entrain the story in your mind and remember where the quotes occur and they’ll be easier to recall, at least that’s what has worked for me!

I would advise that. In paper 2 of AQA Eng Lit GCSE, in the 20th century novel bit, they will give you an option of two questions. Usually, one question is on a character and one is on a theme. So organising your notes like that might help you to answer those questions more clearly.
