Worksheet Overview

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 Exam Tip: When you refer to the text as a whole, you will be awarded marks for paraphrasing or making reference to a particular part of the text.


In this activity you will practise identifying:

- who is speaking/being referred to 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.
