    Hey, I am sitting an AS exam for English Literature in the Summer. Although I am good at English Lit I am struggling to revise, not due to a lack of motivation...but just how do I go about it? My revision style is incredibly intense, for my other subjects (Physics, Economics and History) I am able to make a tick list and plan my revision easily. Does anyone have any ideas how you revise for English Lit? A way that is the most efficient ( I don't mind spending hours to get that A)
    The books/Poems I am doing are:
    Keats
    Auden
    Kite Runner
    The Great Gatsby
    Thanks

    I think I'll just read the stuff over and over, bombard my teachers with questions about mark scheme formulas and try to find example answers to map out a 'model answer' thing (unfortunately English Lit really is that kind of subject- at least at AS), revise literary devices like onomatopoeia etc), maybe do some background reading on context etc.
    I'm aiming for an A. Glad I've got my coursework sorted, because right now my essays are terrible!

    The thing about the mark scheme really annoys me- basically, if no one's told you about the specification and had you look at it beforehand, you're sunk. You can't just write a brilliant spontaneous English essay.
