    I'd get revising and never believe that you're prepared, you can never be prepared enough.

    Ah ok, I've made essay plans for each theme and just tying to learn those, and then in the exam I can just adapt them to whatever the question is. When did you start properly revising and what grade are you aiming for? I'm scared that I don't have enough time in order to get an A :confused:

    Yeah, it's achievable. If I spend the next two days revising straight then of course it is. To be fair, it's a 'wider reading' exam so don't exactly have a set text to revise for so it's basically testing me on the books I read in everyday life. And then the other module on 'poetry' is alright, I just make it up on the day.

    What exam board are you doing? I'm doing OCR, and I will hopefully be ready by tomorrow night.
    I'm on a gap year so mine are re-takes on AQA's board, none of my stuff will be the same as yours, i'm doing war poetry.

    Well, I'm on AQA so the AO's might be different for you and I. But AO3 for me means 'literary connections' so when you make comparisons/contrasts, and also alternative interpretations etc. And AO4 is context.

    If you're worried you've missed anything, I always find it helpful to chat to people in my class about stuff like what we hope comes up/doesn't come up in the exam. Helps you to realise the things you've missed out (if you have) whilst still going over things you already know and you can help other people if they don't understand something. I wouldn't worry too much though, seems you've done the right amount of work Good luck!
    Just a shame I'm not at a college anymore so don't have anyone to swap notes etc with. I think that's why I feel like I'm already prepared as for most English exams, a lot of your preparation comes as the result of talking to others about it.
