    So I have my two exams coming up and I wanted to ask if anyone else are doing these exams and if so, what did you do to prepare for these and any extra help/ tips that could be useful. Also, anyone that has sat these exams before and have advice to offer would be great.

    The exams are:
    Friday 20th May - English Language/ Literature Paper 1 on Poetic Voice(Carol Ann Duffy) and a novel ( The Lovely Bones)
    Monday 23th May - English Language/ Literature Paper 2 on the Paris Anthology ( Question 1 on comparison of two extracts and how a certain place is represented, Question 2 is a recasting task and Question 3 is identifying and describing four language features used in the recasting task)

    Any help would be greatly appreciated (:

    How did your first exam go? I also take this subject and found The Lovely Bones spec much better than the poems when it came to the paper! Any advice on tomorrows paper? I have no idea what to revise!
