    I seriously didn't think I'd be worrying about finishing English lit in time for exams... It's seeming less and less likely now. We're rushing through the last book to the point that I feel we're all missing very important points. Funnily enough all the subjects I thought we wouldn't finish, we've finished...
    If I were you I'd read it alone and use spark notes or any equivalent and ask you teacher outside of class :yep:
    What novel is it?

    We do all our novels and poetry in Y10 and then next year is used for revision and reviewing etc.

    Mr Bruff has some fantastic revision videos on Youtube. Also checkout Guide Tutuion. Another thing that has helped me achieve A*s in all of my mocks is practicing questions. With Literature, analyse and compare poems from the clusters, and analyse song lyrics. That makes it enjoyable and worth your time. There are plenty of example questions for English Language on the internet. Hope I helped!

    Lord of the Flies
    Ooh I haven't actually looked at sparknotes stuff for LOTF. I've been using it for other revision, so it probably should have crossed my mind!
    The way you do it seems much more logical.

    Thanks for the tips
