So my exam is in about a month. It’ll be on an extract from Othello. We have no notes or anything in the exam with us. I’m stressed. I’ve sat here for 3 hours making notes in various ways and everytime I get frustrated because it’s just not going to work. Does anybody know how I should revise?? Should I take my notes by theme instead and then base my characters and quotes around that?? I plan on re reading and watching the play but I’m just stuck on this. Pls help. Pls. I’m begging.

when I was revising I did it by theme, so like love, tragedy, racism, pride, etc, and then I did a bit on character too.
I just made mind maps of say a theme, and then quotes and techniques around it.
that might be in no way helpful it's been a while since I did it.

I remember Schmoop being pretty good for revision.

So glad you’ve said you’ve done it by theme because I’m thinking that’s the best way to go for me, I’m gonna do it by character as well!! Thanks so much

Hi there! I run a YouTube channel where I post weekly Englit study videos. I've got a couple of Othello ones up - see if they help you at all?

Othello - detailed character analysis
Desdemona - detailed character analysis
5 key quotations in 'Othello' analysed
Jealousy in 'Othello' - detailed theme analysis

I'll also be posting a Iago character analysis video very soon, so make sure to subscribe to not miss out on that
