Hey! Im studying Romeo and Juliet and Things Fall Apart for my Literature Exam. To be honest, I have never really gotten an A for Lit and Im hoping to get an A*! What's the most useful way to do up notes for a Lit text? Do I go by character (as in write character traits, then evidence and analysis) or do I go by themes (such as fate and chance, young and old, etc) or do I go by plot? Sorry if this is really lengthy! I am really bothered by my Lit grades and Im trying to push it up constantly! Ive comtemplated on doing my notes by both character and major themes.. So some help please? :) THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

I'm doing Romeo and Juliet and Of Mice and Men. I've looked at characters, plot and social and historical context. Our english teacher just says to try and cover a lot of the basis. With characters (espically R+J) I've found that making a mind map with how the characters connect really helps get an overview. Also, just trying out practice questions has really helped me. Hope I helped

For A - level, the AQA course, for mine, I need to remember quotes to compare with the extract. To do this I create key cards for quotes from a drama, prose and play. I also arrange them within themes so it makes it a lot easier for me in the exam!
