A-level English Lit - The Tempest Part A and B

Hi guys, my a-levels are around the corner and I'm still unsure about The Tempest questions.

I have no idea how to revise any of the questions or have revision material planned, can anyone give tips or their revision material?

Thanks a lot :smile:
heyy im in yr12 but i think i have some advice to impart lol

-research critics quotes (u can use sites like jstor for this)
-look up theems for each character and then find quotes for each theme (for example the themes surronding prospero are colonialism revenge status power etc)]
-PRACTICE WRITING ESSAYS (do this after the other steps ) then submit them to your teacher to get feedback
-get context for your texts (like what was going on during the period and how this influenced the text and the characters in the text.
Also heres a document for the tempes that has loads of quotes themes and critics so if you wanna use it then go ahead!
