Can't help you specifically as I'm still AS French but I'm doing the same in Geman this year. For the book, I'm just doing bullet points on themes, characters, aims, and then short summary cards on the play so you know the plot. Then I test myself on revision cards to see if I know the info. Then just write a few essay plans on questions that could come up-its usually limited what they can ask you! Sorry I can't be of more help. Good luck! And remember to include lots of good structures, vocab and opinions :)

I'm doing A2 french but with edexcel and we're studying a film. For essays, we're told to include lots of analysis and avoid too much description or narrative. Also, make sure you know some extra knowledge about your book to demonstrate you have done extra research and make sure you include lots of evidence/quotes from the book to demonstrate understanding. Hope this helps!

I'm doing OCR and don't have to study a book, but I'd really recommend getting hold of "Mot a Mot". It gives you loads of synonyms to commonly used phrases (I agree with, it is certain/obvious that,a good/bad idea etc). Really helps with range and accuracy marks
