So In English language I'm really good at because I get 7s , 8s almost a 9 but when it comes to English lit I get only 6 almost 7 i struggle to revise for English literature especially for Macbeth. I I know the themes and the context I just never know where to start from and what quotes I need or how many quotes I need etc I am doing Macbeth, Christmas Carol, inspector calls and love and relationships poetry. Could anyone please advise me on quotations? Thank you

You only need to use about 5 to 6 quotes in total but as long as it’s detailed

Bear in mind you can paraphrase. They're not testing your memory - they're testing your ability to critically analyse the text.
