I am doing English Literature GCSE on Of Mice and Men and Pride and Prejudice.
Well I recently did a mock exam on only Pride and Prejudice and I got a "E" grade and I am predicted a B grade. I really struggle with Pride and Prejudice. I understand the story line and everything etc. However sometimes I cant specifically understand the extract provided so I cant answer questions on them. Of Mice and Men is great, understandable etc. So what can I do to improve my understanding of Pride and Prejudice.
It's been a while since you posted and nobody's replied yet...maybe you should check out MarkedbyTeachers.com, TSR's sister site. It has the largest library of essays in the UK.
They've got over 181,000+ coursework, essays, homeworks etc.. all written by GCSE, A Level, University and IB students across all topics. You get access either by publishing some of your own work, or paying £4.99 for a month's access. Both ways give you unlimited access to all of the essays.
All their documents are submitted to Turnitin anti-plagiarism software, so it can't be misused, and the site's used by hundreds of thousands of UK teachers and students.
See if you can find some past exam questions and definitely practice planning/writing the essays. Even if you only plan the essays, you can make a really detailed plan with each different point you're going to make, a quotation to back up your point and then a brief analysis of the quotation that you'd be able to develop in your essay. You could also go list each theme/main character then go through the text picking out quotations that you could use for each theme/character!
