Hey

I'm doing that book and I'm making posters on each character and what each chapter in the book is about. I'm also doing practice papers from the AQA website :)

Hope this helps!!!

I'm reading the book again and looking for chapters that are particularly relevant for likely questions like racism/female role models/the trial. The CGP revision book for it is also really good and gives you a good summary of the chapters.

The mad dog scene proves that Aticus is not as old and 'rubbish' as scout and jem think. He is the 'deadliest shot in Maycomb'. They realise that not everybody is good at the same things.

The mad dog scene is one of many in the book that supports the theme of 'not judging a book by it's cover'. They wouldn't have understood this side of Atticus from just looking at him and you could relate it to when they discover that Dolphus Raymond is not the town drunk as he appears to be, but a good man trying to avoid trouble.

At the start, Jem and Scout think he's old and feeble, but when they find out he's one-shot finch, they love him and think he's a hero (even though he wont accept it)!! :) Read the chapter (9/10) again to see how the language is used.

Read key chapters and look out for symbolism and metaphor, also how there is a key theme of judgement- Mad Dog scene, Dolphus Raymond, Tom Robinson and even how Scout refuses to dress like a girl- even Dills fondness of lying and exagerration to appear cooler shows how people in that society are quite judgemental and sometimes prejudiced

I didn't do 'To Kill a Mockingbird' at GCSE, I did... I've already forgotten the name! XD Something to do with several boys being stranded on an island. Read the book, make notes on key quotes and look up the themes. Also relations between characters, I know that was a popular question. Hope that helps.

i did this for GCSE two year ago, and i really enjoed it! But with revising, i would just say that you need to re-read the book and try to make connections between various things, and look particularly at the morals and social class difference between all of the people :) Remember to include social context to back up what your saying though, it always helps :) just enjoy it really! and hope the exam goes well :)
