    I have my AS lit re-sit on monday; I have already done lots of preperation in the way of extract questions and such, so by 'last minute' I just mean in the sense of the fact that I only have 3 days left.

    Anyone want to contribute some ideas?

    Make a little table for each poem? Split it into sections. So maybe: Themes, Phonology, Context, Grammar, Lexis. Etc etc, obviously the categories would be ones appropriate (I do lang/lit combined so have to know grammar/syntax etc whereas I'm not sure if it's a focal point for straight literature students) And just write out the main points?
    I had an A4 page for each poem, and made 6 bubbles on each, each with the same headings of 'Themes' 'Grammar' 'Imagery' blahblah. And then I wrote out about 3 key points or something in each bubble. :dontknow:

    we were given a lot of handouts to study, so what I did was get two pages entitled AO2 (dramatic/poetic methods) and AO4 (context) and wrote down all relevant information I could find from the handouts for each text I studied. This is assuming you have a lot of handouts, and that you are marked solely on the AO's like we are, but it is a very effective way of learning it

    Did you discuss the paper you did first with your teacher? See what was lacking and where you lost marks.
