These 18 detailed resources look at a number of extracts from the play IN DETAIL in order to support the exam. The exam - as you know - focuses upon an extract which needs a close analytical focus upon it and then needs to be contextualised in relation to the play as a whole. These hand made resources offer detailed analysis of key moments in the play - ideal for White Board or student download. NB: I have put a couple of free examples as a taster resource.

Many of you will be doing the 2017 Summer Exam as a mock this DEC/JAN and this Powerpoint is designed to support that process.

I have included all the obvious things in one place and I’ve also added tips on how to improve on each question, analysis etc. I’ve tried to summarise examiner comments into student friendly language.
