    So in spirits of the Eng Lang GCSE Exam today, I thought it would be great if you all commented your techniques in your aims to get A/A*. I'm usually getting A's or B's (usually in Eng Lang bc ew) but I want advice on how to write and answer questions I have my Eng Lit exam next Wednesday and it's on Macbeth and Inspector Calls. I'm doing Edexcel if that makes a difference.

    For literature I would suggest you learn key quotations and be familiar wit the book and plot. Know all the characters really well and the themes seen in the book Mainly just know the book from start to end well.
