    --> Think outside the box !

    English analysis is crazy and doesn't make sense. So to get good at it, you have to be able to understand this crazy unsensical nonsense.

    • Bullet points (unless there are any length evaluation questions).
    • Skim the piece before you answer any questions to give you a grasp of the broader context, then read the pertinent bits again in detail for a particular question.
    • Try to be concise - this both saves you time and stops you waffling your way out of a mark. The word our teacher used was 'lucid', which I thought captured it nicely.
