    I did my first mock on Section A for English Lit today which was the part with a given extract and where you're expected to bring in wider reading.
    My teacher for this section has been away for a lot of the year and we've received next to no guidance on how to answer the question or approach wider reading... I think we're doing AQA A, and it's the Struggle for Modern Identity if that needs to be specified, I just feel a bit stumped at the moment - it seems a bit impossible!

    Is there any advice on how to approach the contextual question generally? I'd be really grateful!

    Thanks in advance

    Whilst I haven't done Literature for AQA A, have a look at the examiners report for the struggle for modern identityhere.

    You can view the mark scheme for the struggle for identity, January 2010 exam here.

    Looking at these will help you to see how you can get marks, and what you need to do to access the higher bands.

    Anything else I can do, feel free to quote me.
