Currently in year 11. I'm trying to get all my prep done for my GCSEs early. I study Romeo and Juliet, Inspector Calls and A Christmas Carol for English Literature. I am starting to create my revision cards for English Literature, and I wondered if the way I am doing it is effective. I am writing key quotes for every theme (e.g. fate, love, conflict, family relationships) on separate revision cards and then key quotes for every character (e.g. Romeo, Mercutio) also on cards. I am then summarising context and other important bits of information. Is this good? Or is there more information I should be including?

I think that this is a great way to revise. Also, I made thousands of mindmaps using the BBC Bitesize website because it's so good.

i would also do essay plans like mindmaps for the characters/themes
eg i created a mind map for inspector goole (as I also study inspector calls) this includes his personality, how he treated everyone, appearance, atmosphere he creates, what he does/did

quizlet quotes are also really good

definitely recommend annotating potential bits of the text just in case you get an exam q
also practice the structure and stuff
i can only speak about an inspector calls as i don’t study the other 2

hope this helped

The character/essay plans are a great idea
Structure is a great point
Thanks!
