In the exam, you will need to be able to select quotations from an extract and explain what these show about a character or theme.
You will also need to refer to different parts of the text, using quotations to support your ideas.
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: When you are referring to the text as a whole, you will be awarded marks for paraphrasing or making reference to part of the text as well as using direct quotations.
In this activity you will practise identifying:
- Who is speaking in particular 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.
