In the exam, you will need to be able to support your ideas with quotations from the text.



You should try to build a bank of quotations for each character and theme and learn these so that you can use them readily in your exam response.


Top tip for the exam: While it is important to use direct quotations, you will also be rewarded marks for paraphrasing or making reference to part of the text!


In this activity you will practise identifying:


Who is speaking in particular quotations

Who is being to referred to in quotations

What quotations suggest about a character

What theme or idea is explored in a quotation


You should always refer to your own text when working through these examples.  These quotations are for reference only.
