    I have no clue because I think we did CA for Macbeth now that I remember, but study themes, characters in depth I guess?

    Yeah, definitely. Which 20th century novel and Shakespeare play are you doing for English Lit?
    My exams for Lit are on Of Mice and Men, A View from the Bridge and Lord of the Flies (and unseen poetry)

    But I did do coursework on Romeo and Juliet as well.

    unseen poetry only comes in y10 exams (unit 1)

    unit 2, we study two books, so that's 2 essays + 2 extracts analysation so theres no poems in y11 (thank god for that)
    but honestly i was so bad at poems even though i did get full UMS *screams*
    my technique was, dont purposely look for the writer's techinque, there's no checklist for that, you have to pick out a word and explain its effects and why it's being used. that's what gets you the marks, u dont get marks for saying ''oh thats an alliteration '', yes but why does the writer uses it? to emphasise the line, so that the specific line stands out from the rest as they want to highlight it for some reason. hoped i helped, i know it's rubbish, and i wondered why i even got full marks for the poems, i literally wrote a load of crap and the comparison was literally 5 lines xd im lucky!

    Believe me, my friends were posting that all over ig and I was like what's the big deal, BUT after I started watching it, I fell in love.
    Ikr! It was even on BBC apparently. Yes it is worth it. There's only 11 ep so far and I'm in ep 6 (I started it ytd )
