ELLA 2- Othello AS revision help please! :-)

Showing 1 to 5 of 5

Hi everyone,

I am doing English Lit and Lang exam for AQA on the 6th for AS, and it is a closed-book exam

Am studying Othello, where you have to analyse a passage you are given and then refer to another passage. But, I'm finding it really hard to remember other passages and refer to them...

If anyone has any tips for how to do this, or any general tips for how to revise for this exam, please let me know.

Also, any themes in Othello, possibly with key scenes etc would be really helpful.

Thanks, and good luck on all exams!!

www.litcharts.com has an Othello revision pack, it has themes and summeries of the play and explains them so that should be good help for you.

As for remembering, try watching the play, you can probably find it on youtube and just read the play, keep in mind, a quote from another part of the play is not vital. Keep practicing exam questions and you should be fine

I'm doing this paper too- good luck!!

hey, well first of alll...dont worry

i am also doing this and i am finding it quite hard due to the fact that i have 2 exams :(

and erm the best way to revise is to read the play, watch it and then annotate important scenes in the play and scenes which contribute towards important themes.

:) goodluck x

Hi Thank you both so much for answering!! :-) This is the exam I'm stressing most about! Isn't the other passage worth 20% of the exam? So I'm thinking really good analysis of the passage and a brief reference to another passage for a decent grade... I hope it's a question on a character- not a theme... Good luck to you both and everyone else doing this exam!! :-D
