Hey Everyone, 


I am freaking out right now. I have IOC tomorrow and I kind of know what extracts it is going to be because my teacher kind of mentioned it briefly but I have no clue what to say as I am so so bad at this IOC or english in general, 

the extracts are from Othello and Samson Agonistes and this is stressing me out so much because I have no idea what to say.


Anyone who can help me with this?

Shakespeare - othello

Milton- Samson agonistes



I would be so grateful

I don't know if this is too late of a reply but;


Othello was one of the texts that I had to study for my IOC, along with Selected Sonnets and Odes by Keats. The main revision I did for Othello was to read through and pick out the key monologues (which were highly likely to come up) and just annotate them the best I could. Luckily, our teacher helped us quite a bit with narrowing down the extracts which we had to concentrate on, so it was slightly easier. I got Keats in my IOC though (thankfully!) so I can't say much on the actual experience, with regards to Othello. Good luck! ~
