Last minute advice -
PLAN YOUR ESSAY
Don't just shove in critics/context for the sake of it - integrate them in/make sure you're linking the context/critics to your points
Don't try and use big words to sound smart
Don't rush into writing your essay
One of the marking criteria is being evaluative - so speculate everything you say "this could mean this, could be interpreted this"
For drama, talk about the texts as plays or else your marks are going to end up going south straight to Belle Reve
I've got Othello and A Streecar Named Desire.
I hope Emilia comes up for Othello although I'm not too sure what to expect. I'm struggling to remember critics quotes which is pretty worrying since the exam is tomorrow😬
I have no idea for streetcar but for Othello i think it'll be Emilia/Desdemona/Women
