      I would say learn all the characters e.g Macbeth Lady Macbeth Banquo Macduff Malcolm Duncan King Edward The Witches .. Once you know about the characters you can actually answer any theme question. I think they could ask something on Kingship, Lady Macbeth/The Witches or a question on Banquo

      What I do is literally write out as many themes I can think of and then I just develop them in my head.. Save the writing for Wednesday and Thursday. Good luck :)
