    Hi,my AS English Language and Literature exam is approaching in the forthcoming weeks. I'm studying 'The Handmaid's Tale' and 'Mean Time', but I don't really know what the best way to revise this would be.

    I'm not sure what exam board you're studying with, but depending on whether or not it's open or closed book, quotation sheets are really useful. Aside from that, I'd recommend just writing as many essays as you can, and if you don't have time for that, just plan out different possible questions. That way, you can track themes and ideas that you could use in your actual exam.
