    I have a lit exam this Monday and the book we are focusing on is A View From The Bridge.
    I needed help on ways to revise for LIT? I've read the book and gone over quotes but what more - I really wanna ensure I get a solid A or A* because I got A- on my Essay - Thanks for the help!


    I'd say group the quotations you've found under the main characters and themes that are likely to come up in the question. Other than that, do some timed essays or at least plan them (making sure you've used the quotations), or re-reading the book and your class notes.

    I don't know if your exam also focuses on critics or context, but maybe have a look at them too. Even if it doesn't it wouldn't hurt to know more about the circumstances in which the book was written (historically, socially and also personally for the author), or indeed different critical responses.

    I hope that helped a bit, I'm still in 6th form but I'm also hoping for an A (we don't get A* at AS level for some reason…). Good luck!
